Thomson Destiny, Thomson Emerald,Thomson Spirit. If you have missed the free all inclusive upgrade then Thomsons charge £149pp. We have been on Thomson cruises 6 times all different ships, and always gone all inclusive. Its wonderful not to have a nasty bill at the end of your holiday and all types of drinks are included, all spirits, selected cocktails.It also makes for a friendlier ship as no one is going to get stuck standing a round at the bar and as 4 ladies travelling together we aren't seen as a threat financially at the bar! Jusat tried to book Island cruises (simply just for a chnage to Thomsons) sailing Sept 18th this year, but its too late to get their all inclusive deal, therefore we are waiting for a last minute Thomson deal. Just wish there was more choice of all inclusive ships out there, definitely the way to cruise!

Some travel agents have these special groups where you can buy the package or some of the cruise lines to encourage you to book early have these packages that they give away, I know that Island have one at the moment. Otherwise see if you can purchase onboard - we have purchased the wine package several times.

I know Thomson Destiny does one, because we're going on 30th August for 2 weeks and we got it when we booked - free upgrade to all-inclusive! Mind you, we booked May 2006! I'm sure most of the cruise ships do this.

Thompson Destiny, we were offered it when we got a late booking 5 days before departure, but we had to pay £149 each for the week, if you are big drinkers its worth it, if not the prices are reasonable.

I suppose there is no quick answer to that and cruise lines vary in what they charge and also for how long you will be off the ship.The thing about excursions is that if you book them using the ship then if there are any delays then the ship will hold on for you and that is pretty much true but there is also another company we use out there that give you a guarantee to get you back to the ship in time and not everybody knows about them or has even looked at them, this is a shame as some of th...

My 6* Luxury Silverseas Experience

By Kerry James

Kerry James's blog

Last week I was lucky to have been chosen to fly to Dubai for 2 nights and then to sample 6* luxury on board the Silverseas Silver Spirit for 3 nights. Our flights from Edinburgh were with Turkish Airlines and we were very lucky to have half of us upgraded to Business Class on the way out, and the other half on the way back.We were late leaving Heathrow which meant we technically should have missed our connection but luckily the flight was held and after a mad dash to the plane (typically the...
