Default How much does it cost to build a Cruise Ship?

Does anyone know how much Hurtigruten cruises paid Fincantieri to build their new ship MS Fram?

Probably in the $100-$200 million range. Most of the mega ships built these days are well over $500 million and some are approaching a billion.

'03 Disney Magic
'05 Golden Princess
'07 Carnival Liberty
'08,Crown Princess
'09, B2B on the Carnival Freedom
'11, Carnival Liberty

Is there anything better than cruising? I doubt it

Cunard just announced that they will be building a new Queen Elizabeth for 2010 at a cost of 500 million pounds, so I think that would be about 1 Billion US?
