Carnival cruise prices drop drastically

Prices-per-night drop to motel rates

By Tara Evans - Executive Producer

If you're interested in taking an inexpensive cruise, and Carnival's recent trouble does not deter you, you're in luck!

Carnival Corp. (CCL) is offering a Caribbean cruise for as little as $38 a night. That's actually less than a stay at Motel 6.

For $38 per-person, per night, you can take a four-day trip to the Bahamas from Port Canaveral with stops in Nassau and Half Moon Cay. The ship includes a comedy club, a piano bar, a casino and a spa.

A four-night trip on Carnival's Imagination, leaving Miami on April 22, costs $149 a person, including meals and some beverages, according to the cruise company's website yesterday.

The company is based in Miami, and has been in the news ever since the Carnival Triumph's engine fire back in February that left thousands of passengers stranded at sea for several days. The conditions were reportedly awful, including limited toilet use and food service.

The company said they are hoping these prices will lure customers in after the Triumph troubles and other mishaps.
