Costa cruises have a x1 package which includes all bottled water, wine, bottled bear and fizzy juice when eating/sitting in the self service areas and resturant when food is being served. you receive 2 drinks per card. on our 11 night cruise in feb 08 it cost £83 per card. we bought only one card but both drank from it. your travel agent has to apply for the card. costa cruises are itallian owened and has people european people on board but they are very livley and younger people on board including many children as they have special prices for them.

Except that the Thomson Destiny 'all inclusive' is an optional add-on. Silversea and Seabourn are included in the price. There is also a massive gulf in quality.

Island Cruises have an all inclusive option, which includes far more than Thomson, bottles of water free and very small supplements for branded names.
