Island Cruises is from all accounts ideal for 1st time cruising. An all inclusive package is available for an additional £149 per week.

Ah simple - Azamara Journey or Quest. Country Club Casual is the dress code for every evening, and grats are included in the price. If you want all inclusive (meaning you drink all you want) then you have to go upmarket - Seabourn or SilverSeas - and that has not got the casual dress code, and you will be paying thousands more jsut to get the 'free' drinks. I know which one I would go for...!

David, are you sure that the gratuities are included with this line. If they are I wasn't aware of this. To the enquirer, I would also consider Swan Hellenic as an option but quite honestly the bundle that you have put together don't generally sit well on one page. yours Heather .

Yes, they are either prepayable or are automatically added on board - no getting out of them - so a roundabout way of saying they are 'included'! I too think the criteria of 'casual dress all inclusive' is a hard one to fill!

Ocean Village and Island Cruises are both informal (aimed at the UK market), have plenty of ports on each trip and include gratuities. Only Island Escape offers all inclusive re alcohol (but I would much prefer to go on Island Star or either OV and just pay for the drinks as they are much nicer ships).

Thomson cruises do a very varied programme of differing itineraries, eastern/western Mediterranean, baltic area, canaries or Caribbean and also the Red Sea to name the ones I can remember!!!! We have always found them to be excellent value for money and very relaxed....everything from embarkation to disembarkation is always well organised we have found on our four cruises with them. Gratuities are included and if you book early you may be lucky and get free All inclusive otherwise you have to pay for it!!!
