Guy - Answered a Question by Protheroe (08 Jul 08 12:39)

The first time we got a free upgrade to all inclusive I worked out whether it would have been worth paying for it (I'm an accountant!)and the answer was that we would have just about broken even on it. We tend to drink quite a lot on holiday, don't forget soft drinks are included too (but NOT bottled water), but unless you drink very little then I think it's worth it just so you don't have to think about what you're spending.

Depends how much you drink! the prices on board are about pub prices I think...£2.25 for a glass of wine or cocktail of the day..don't know about beer...can of coke or sprite £1.00...but the all inclusive is about £150 for the week I think so if you drink alot it may be worth it.. but remember you probably won't be onboard during the day so it would just be the evenings. We were lucky and had the free deal as we booked early!! Can't help any more than that I'm afraid.

Personally, it is worth taking the all inclusive deal, I agree with Guy from Halifax that it takes away the worry about what you are spending because if you do the shore excursions too, this will add up to quite a lot of money in the long term.

Happy New Year from Aurora

By Anne Eaves

We are nearly half way through January and Christmas and New Year seem like a distant memory already. I cant believe that it is 10 days already since I got back from my New Year cruise on Aurora which also seems like an age ago. When I woke up on 27th December and seen all the snow I did wonder if we would get to Southampton at all, thank goodness we had booked and hotel in Southampton for 28th December so we would be there the day before.After a lovely night out in Southampton and a night at...

By Renee Gagen

Renee Gagen's blog

Tipping on board cruise ships has always been a problem, many customer’s like to do this, many don’t, I’m a person that doesn’t like to be told how much I should give and who to give it too and is it getting out of control the amount that cruise lines are putting these up by?Many people think it’s just on cruise ship but many holiday destinations you have to tip places so what is the recommended amount that you should tip? I know while I was on Holiday in Goa my ...
