|Initial Advertising Cost |65,000 |
|Administrative Expenses |10,000 |
|Ship Rental and Crew |220,000 |
|Amount of passengers |200 |
|Cost per passenger |200 |
|Cost for passengers @200 |40,000 |
|Total Cost |335,000 |
|Average cost per voyage |1,500 |
|Tickets to Break Even | 223 |

2. Should Health Cruises go ahead with the cruise since 200 people have signed up by November 14th? Why or why not?

|Total Revenue @200 | 300,000 |
|Total Cost |335,000 |
|Profit | (35,000) |
