What do All Inclusive Cruises Include?

  1. 1. What do All Inclusive Cruises Include?Most cruises are referred to as “ all-inclusive cruises”, but if you arelooking online to book a cruise for your summer holiday, you to need todo plenty of research into what that really means. If using a travel agentor booking through the cruise line, make sure they explain in detail whatis actually included when they say “all-inclusive”. This more often thannot does not mean that absolutely everything is included.The traditional all-inclusive cruise with the budget cruise lines and thehuge mega ships usually means that the price you pay covers youraccommodations on board, food, non-alcoholic beverages,entertainment on the ship, taxes, and port fees. There is often someconfusion about whether or not snacks are included and with some ofthese cruises, the price does not include beverages like sodas. Theprice of the cruise will vary depending on the style and location of yourcabin. Suites cost more and your package deal will be higher if yourcabin is on the outside of the ship versus the inside.Another level of all-inclusive cruise, more expensive than the typedescribed above, also include a roundtrip bus trip to and from the pierand an unlimited drink package. Cruise lines that are popular for “alcoholincluded” all-inclusive cruises are Carnival, Holland America, Norwegian,and Royal Caribbean as well as those that specialize in the luxurycruises on smaller ships like Silversea, Crystal, and Seabourn.Sometimes the shore excursions are also included as well as the spatreatments available on board. Luxury cruises normally will tell you not totip the service people like stewards and wait staff. That cost is usuallywrapped into the price of the cruise.Completely all-inclusive cruises arranged by a travel agent or the cruiseline can also include your airfare to and from the port city and even ahotel stay the night before the cruise departs and the night that it returns.When it comes to family cruises, all-inclusive deals on cruise lines likeDisney are perfect for both the adults and the children. The priceincludes not just your cabin, food, and entertainment, but also all of the

This style cruise is verywell organised and the itinerary is basically set in stone. The shoreexcursions and sights you will see are completely planned for you andare run on a tight schedule. This takes away your freedom to see whatyou want or to spend more time at one place than another. The feelingof being locked in to a strict schedule, including when and where to eat,is the biggest complaint that people have about all-inclusive cruises. Partof a relaxing holiday is the absence of schedules and limitations on time.There are advantages and disadvantages to all-inclusive cruises butluckily there are all different levels of these cruises. How much you wantincluded is completely up to you and depends on how much you arewilling to spend. Keep in mind that if you go for the more budget-orientedall-inclusive cruise, by the time you pay for all of the other incidentalsthat aren’t included, you may end up paying as much if not more than ifyou had opted for the truly all-inclusive deal.For more informative Cruise Articles please visitwww.CruiseHolidaysGuide.com
