All Inclusive Cruises

Sep 2, 2008
All inclusive cruises give the freedom to enjoy a cruise without the worry of 'over spending'. Many different cruise companies, including Thompson Cruises, offer all inclusive cruises, or give the opportunity to upgrade to all inclusive.

The all inclusive price includes the flights, where applicable, from local or major airports in the UK and sea travel, hotel accommodation when an onshore overnight stay is part of the itinerary, all port charges and taxes. Unlimited drinks throughout the cruise includes selected wines, spirits, tea, coffee and soft drinks for children, although the spirits are not usually known brand names and surprisingly some all inclusive cruises do charge for bottled water! One of the all inclusive aspects which is very appealing to some people is that the staff gratuities on board the ship are also included, this aspect of cruising often fills people with dread!

When an all inclusive cruise is booked, a full list of the things which are and those that are not included will be provided. This type of cruise holiday has made cruising very affordable and a practical, cost effective way to discover different regions of the world for many people and families, as they only spending money required is for personal spending in the on-board duty free shops and casinos, any personal spending during time on-shore is not included within the price. All inclusive cruises reduce the risks of theft and concerns people may have about carry a lot of money with them.It is usual for a card to be issued during embarkation procedures, which is presented instead of payment on cruise ships which are not completely dedicated to all inclusive passengers.

With all cruise liners having different styles of restaurants, bars and cafés all inclusive deals does not mean segregation! The only difference in all inclusive cruises is the destinations and durations of the cruise may be slightly limited.

With some of the smaller cruise companies, such as Hebridean International Cruises, their all inclusive deals also include escorted on-shore tours, any entrance fees featured in the itinerary and transport to and from the tour venue. Picnics and barbecues featured on the on-shore itineraries are also included. On selected ships the use of the gym, steam and relaxation rooms is included. Any snorkelling equipment needed or bicycle or fishing tackle use is also free. Minor medical treatments and routine medical examinations by the on-board doctor makes these cruises truly inclusive. This cruise line also has an exclusive private terminal at London, Stansted airport which is separate from the main terminal, to make the start of their all inclusive cruise holidays relaxing from the beginning and use private flights during their summer programme and scheduled flights for the winter programme. Hebridean cruises use small vessels with a much reduced passenger capacity than usual cruise liners. The two ships in their fleet carry 98 and 49 passengers and the ratio of staff to passengers is almost one-to-one making these all inclusive cruises very unique and the ultimate in luxury cruising.
