Of course, being the renegade, easyCruise lets passengers book variable itineraries that range from two nights to two weeks. Fares start at 29.50 pounds (about $57) per person, based on double occupancy. Food, beverages and daily housekeeping services are not included in the fare but are available on an a la carte basis.
easyCruiseOne is the former Renaissance 2; the ship has been in Singapore for the past six months, undergoing a major transformation in which its original luxury suites were converted into no-frills cabins starting at 108 square feet. The fledgling U.K.-based cruise line is part of the easyGroup empire, some 15 companies launched by serial entrepreneur Stelios Haji-Ioannou. These ultra-budget companies include easyJet, easyCar and easyInternetCafe.
