Not usually, this isn't Cunard in any shape or form. On Island cruises one normally pays for everything. In other words you pays your money, you get your choice.
Sometimes they do.
Last year we were met at a few places by buses which took us to enterance to the port, in a couple of places this was actually the town, and we actually docked right near to the towns and walked about 5-10 mins in a couple of cases whilst touring the Med on the Island Escape.
I know a few people commented to me that they were treated better on Island Cruises than on a number of others that they had been on, and I didnt see anyone complaining the whole of the cruise, it was really much more than we could of hoped for.
There are quite a few people out there that should open their eyes a bit wider and sample this cruise line.
