- Luxury travel subscription company Inspirato unveiled eight 2023 cruises exclusive to its members.
- The starting price of the eight cruises range from $7,500 per package to $28,900 per stateroom.
- Two of the itineraries were fully booked within the first day of the program’s unveil.
The cruise industry is making a comeback, and travelers are ready to pay big bucks to return to sea.
On Monday, luxury travel subscription company Inspirato announced eight members-only cruises sailing in 2023, starting at $7,500 per package.
Within 24 hours, the company sold out two itineraries, amassing a “record breaking” over $3 million in reservations, it said in a press release.
The luxury cruise program has clearly resonated with travelers, but Inspirato is neither a massive cruise line nor a boutique cruise brand.
Instead, the company specializes in a travel subscription program that gives its members access to luxury vacation homes, hotels, events, and trips around the world, including some aboard cruise ships.
Since Inspirato isn’t a cruise brand, the company will partner with different operators like Uniworld Boutique River Cruises and Emerald Cruises to charter and operate the ships.
And travelers are clearly excited: Within the first day of the program’s unveil, the Greece and Egypt itineraries both sold out “immediately,” according to the company.
The lineup of eight itineraries will sail through five continents from March 2023 to February 2024.
This includes the Vietnam to Cambodia River Cruise in March 2023 starting at $13,900 per package …
… the Alaska Expedition in July 2023 aboard the National Geographic Quest starting at $19,900 …
… and the Antarctica Expedition in February 2024 aboard the National Geographic Resolution. This sailing is the most expensive, starting at a whopping $28,900 per stateroom.
“At Inspirato, we can definitively report that cruises are back,” Brent Handler, cofounder and CEO of Inspirato, said in the press release.
