Prices are same as here but it is branded drinks and if you tip they pour them at the table with a good messure.we done the all inclusive at £160 each which was well worth it.
Good to get a idea on the all inclusive,as undecided about that ! ,we do like the 'freedom ',of the card,thank you.
You dont need to be an alchoholic to reap the benefits of AI ,besides the obvious like a glass or two of wine with your meals you can get a variety of waiter served nice fresh coffees anytime the bars are open, keep a few cans of soft drinks in your cabin, get cans of soft drinks to take if you are going ashore (onshore prices can now be quite expensive) , doesn't take long to soak up the AI cost ,i bet some non AI people who only think of themeselves as moderate/light drinkers get a suprise at the bill at the end of the week, and thats with the reasonable prices.
Thank you very much for all that,we have been thinking much on the same lines as you,do always try to go A/I,when i go on holiday,and suppose we do drink more,thats part of the holiday,and relaxing.
As previously said the prices on board the Spirit are very reasonable. You need to drink an awful lot to get your moneys worth on an all inclusive package.
Thank you very much,good to get the info,last cruise we were on ,was expensive.
Hi weve been on all inclusive several times on the spirit and celebration. The first time we tried we drank more than the AI fees and this was checked against out Nil bill at the end. it gives u peace of mid when ending the cruise that you know exactlly what youve spent.Also its a nice way to try all the cocktails without the worry of costs.
Its a cashless society on board and all the wiaters are happy to get you another drink.
We have got the AI thrown in as part of a package once as we always book on a suinday night weekens coz u sometimes get the better dealrs or money off, It sounds stupid but if u study the prices for a while you will see.
May i ad that the celebration and thespirit are old ships but a realy nice experience can be gained> i like the old fashioned promenade deck where its nice to walk around at night.
If you have upgraded to the larger window cabins its worth it for extra space and comfort. The cabin crew are brill .
I hold thomp[son in high esteme for an informal cruise which usually has one formal night and by past experience many dress up in black tie.
The good thing about the spirit is that you dont have set sittings which is a bonus. The entertainment is really good quality and the early shows more popular.
We have done the red sea and the pyramids are worth seeing. Cairo is an experience in itself and quite safe with your sleeping gun totting guard on the bus lol.
Cairo is like london in the rush hour except itsl ike that 24 hours a day. Street signs are there for decoration only and its rare to see a car without a dent in all four sides. Its usually push and shove with the vehicles as they go through but its well worth going.
Aqaba in jordan is nice and its safe to walk around. The jordaiians flock to the beach but they are more untidy and littered than in the uk.
When we pulled into jordan the jordanian air force came over to give the ship an air display which was really nice. Worth a camcorder.
If you go to hurgada watch the jewellry from the ships as white goldusually turns gold lol.
All in all it was a really nice holiday with fantastic weather on board a comfortable ship..Enjoy. This ship is not like the big liners about a quarter of the size but its nice. hope you enjoy and this is useful.
Thank you very much for all that,real good reading,and lots of little tips ,do seem to be going towards the A/I, as always just trying to get a good deal , Thanks again.
