Not sure what the current price is (sometimes you get it free!!) but you have to book it before you go!

Wife & I have recently booked Spirit Red Sea 7 days (depart March '09) and quoted £300-odd for both of us. I'm a 6 - day drinker (only when cruising!) OH is 1 or 2. I did the cost/benefit appraisal and will adopt a pay-as-you-go policy.

The last I heard the price quoted was £24 per day per person which seems a lot to me I found a price list for the alcholol prices apologies it is quite small but I think readable http://homepage.ntlworld.com/cjdolan/back.jpg you can work out what you think you will drink form this list, but the premium options are not included in the package. Can't remeber who we thank for this info .... Bill.

Does the prices on the list include a mixer to go with it i.e bacardi & coke or is it only for the spirit.

The price did include mixers but there are now several comments on this page re Thomsons and the price is varying between £98 to over £300 part of the confusion is that they have a lower rate for summer than winter so be wise to check with your travel agent exactly what the current price is. I had a copy of the price lists for drinks on the Thomson cruises and at Nov 2008 I thought unless you drank a lot it was not worth it, as there average price was in the region of £4 but the decsion is yours....Bill.

I think you have to book it before you go on the ship - I am pretty sure you can not upgrade to that once on board - ask your travel agent to get you a quote.

The cost of the All Inclusive drinks package is currently £98.00 per person for 14 nights and if you have already booked your cruise, it can be added as an optional extra - speak to your travel agent or the Thomson enquiry line about this. You cannot upgrade to the All Inclusive drinks package when you arrive on board the ship.

The cost of the All Inclusive package at £7 per day only applies from May 09 - if the cruise is this winter in the Canaries then it will be more.

Travelling on the Thomson Spirit for 7 nights (Red Sea cruise) on 2 April. I have just rung the Thomson enquiry line and been quoted £159 for a 7-night All Inclusive Drinks package. Does anyone know if this is the norm on this cruise please. Seems a lot compared to Hulstrom's £98 for 14 nights. Many thanks.

When we first booked our cruise in August last year, the drinks package wasn't available and when we eventually managed to book it in October, we were quoted a price of £368.00 per person for 14 nights - which we booked, reluctantly - then in January, the price was lowered to £98.00 per person for the 14 nights. Subsequently, we cancelled our original cruise booking and re-booked it with the lower priced drinks package but low and behold, Thomsons have now raised the drinks package price back up to £368.00 per person for the 14 nights in July.

When is the best time to book a cruise?

By Collette Apak

It’s a question that I am asked many times.Last week I spoke to a customer who booked a cruise way back last Summer with Royal Caribbean to travel this year. They received an early booking discount from Royal Caribbean (plus free parking from ourselves) and were outraged when RCI decided to announce they were now including a deluxe drinks package PLUS the second passenger goes half price. When we added the cost of the drinks package on to the price they paid for their original cruise th...

Toddlers and pools on board

By Kerry James

Kerry James's blog

Choosing the right ship for any age is important, but even more so when picking one that is suitable for children, toddlers and babies. Older children may want the kids clubs, some are just happy with the pool, or some might want more adventurous activities like rock climbing, ice skating etc. But what about toddlers/infants?Some parents with children under 3 might not want to leave their children in the kids club all day, and actually just be happy with a pool that the child can use –...

Sea Legs that is!?If you are a seasoned cruiser the chances are you have but not everyone can handle the ship’s movement and although seasickness is hardly fatal, with symptoms such as nausea, stomach cramps and vomiting, it can certainly put a damper on your cruise funThe thought of Seasickness can be enough to stop new cruisers even setting foot on a ship but there are a few handy tricks to ease you throughGenerally speaking being midships in the lowest part of the ship – the n...
