All Inclusive Cruises
All-inclusive cruises are a great option for those that want to book their luxury cruise holiday and not worry about additional costs once onboard.
All-inclusive cruises are a highly attractive way to holiday because they offer superb value for money. In most cases, you simply pay your cruise fare and that is it. Unless you want to make a personal purchase from the onboard shop, you need never show your cruise card unless you are leaving or re-boarding the ship.
The all-inclusive cruise option is ideal for everyone: couples, families, first time cruisers and solo travellers. If you want to book your holiday and rest assured that your drinks and gratuities etc. are all taken care of, then this is the perfect cruise choice for you. First time cruisers will benefit from not having to worry about how much and who to tip, and seasoned travellers will simply board and relax knowing that their every need, however big or small, will be taken care of.
What does an all-inclusive cruise include?
All-inclusive can vary per cruise line, so it is important to know what the term means to each, however, it will always include your cruise, food, and a selection of soft drinks, hot drinks, wine and spirits.
Some cruise lines advertise as all-inclusive and they really are just that. Regent Seven Seas Cruises as an example are all-suite, all-inclusive luxury and your cruise fare with them includes flights, transfers, gratuities, food, drinks, shore excursions, and depending on your suite category, it also includes a 1-night pre-or-post cruise hotel stay.
All-inclusive cruises - what's not included?
Not all cruise lines are what we would call absolutely all-inclusive as there are some services onboard which even at a luxury land based hotel would still be an additional cost. You will usually find that spa & beauty treatments, casino and satellite phone usage are not included in the cost of your fare – this applies to almost all cruise lines whether all-inclusive or not.
Some all-inclusive cruise lines offer shore excursions as part of the fare price, whereas others don’t – it does vary per cruise line and sometimes even ship and itinerary, and not all include flights. Always check with our Cruise Experts what is definitely included.
