If the thought of getting to the end of your cruise and being handed a big bill for all your expenses fills you with dread, then an all inclusive cruise may just be for you. There are a lot of cruise lines that offer all inclusive as standard so you won’t even have to worry about the additional cost you have to pay out when booking. Many of the luxury cruise lines such as Regent Seven Seas, Azamara Club Cruises & Silversea are all inclusive meaning that all your flights, WIFI, alcoholic beverages and much more are included. Some of these cruise lines, for example Regent Seven Seas, also include free unlimited shore excursions, meaning you really do get the chance to explore, in depth, every port you visit.
Cruise lines such as Norwegian Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises & MSC Cruises offer you the choice to add all inclusive packages on to your cruise when you book or, if you decide when you get onboard that you’d like to upgrade to the all inclusive package, you can speak to the front desk on most cruises, who will be able to help you add this on for you to enjoy.
There are different types of all inclusive packages available for you to add on to your cruise and it all depends on what your after. These vary from the more simple packages with an ‘up to’ spend amount per drink to premium packages where you can choose from all the drinks available onboard with no limit plus, depending on which cruise line you have chosen, free access to food from your mini bar as well as the room service menu. If you are particular about the types of wines, beers and spirits you enjoy then this might be the best option. It may be worth doing some small research on the ship you are planning on sailing on to see what types of drinks they offer onboard to find out which package will suit you best. You don’t want to book a all inclusive package to find out when you’re onboard that your chosen tipple is not included in the cost.
