As if you needed another excuse to book your next holiday, we can now reveal that it’s cheaper to go on a round-the-world cruise than it is to live in London.

Yep, you read right! According to a new survey, it is cheaper by more than £7-a-day to live on a cruise liner than in the nation's capital.

CruiseDeals.co.uk found that life in London comes to £2,871.19-a-month on average – or £95.71 a day – including rent, rates, food, travel and entertainment. This is in comparison with a 120-day, full-board, round-the-world trip, with single supplement, which costs £88.53 per day. Aside from stops in many ports including Barbados, Mexico and Australia, the fare includes main meals, afternoon tea, hot drinks, entertainment and port taxes. And it all costs £7.18 less a day than living in London.

Little surprise then that the cruise industry grew by nine percent in 2015. Data from Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) also shows that one-in-nine package holidays booked in 2015 was a cruise, up from one-in-ten the year before. And the trend looks set to continue as the number of ships departing from the UK will increase in 2016: Norwegian Cruise Line is departing from the UK for the first time in seven years, while Thomson Cruises and Cruise and Maritime Voyages are launching ships dedicated to the UK market.
