All Inclusive

Many people ask if its worth purchasing a drinks package to make your cruise all inclusive, I personally can whole heartedly say yes, even if you aren’t a big alcohol drinker, many include an array of soft drinks too and one of the best value at sea is with MSC cruise lines

The advantage of adding an all inclusive package before you travel, is you can have a cheeky glass of sparkling wine once boarded to celebrate your holiday. That may be just me but to me the main thing is that it does work out better value overall, if you were to buy on a drink by drink basis any cruise line will automatically charge a 15-18% gratuity onto the cost of any drink, so for example if your wine is 4.50 euros, this is more like 5 euros, if your cocktail is 7 euros this is actually 8 euros. Once you have bought a couple of soft drinks and water during the day, a glass or 2 of wine with dinner and maybe a night cap this is all it takes to make your drinks package work for you


MSC offer 3 different packages that can be added to your cruise

Option 1 – Cheers all inclusive package from £11p/p per day

This includes drinks at mealtimes only, including a selection of wine, beer and soft drinks in the buffet and main restaurants. This suits people who like a glass of wine with their meals only

Option 2 – Restaurant and Bar drinks package from £18p/p per day

This is a fantastic value all inclusive package and the most popular, including selected drinks in all restaurants and bars, including beer, wine, spirits, cocktails and soft drinks. All drinks are branded however it doesn’t include premium brands.

Option 3 – Deluxe all inclusive package from £35p/p per day

This is a fully comprehensive all inclusive including unlimited spirits including premium brands, liqueur, aperitifs, classic and Premium cocktails, wide selection of wines by the glass, draught and bottled beer, non-alcoholic cocktails, soft drinks, juices, premium mineral water, energy drinks, espresso and cappuccino, drinks from the theme bar menus, minibar, and drinks and food from room service menu


The prices do vary on the length of your cruise but offer fantastic value and means you don’t have to worry about a surprise bill at the end of your cruise, plus if you’ve always fancied trying a new drink or cocktail that you have always wanted but maybe a bit wary, you can without worrying about the cost, you never know you may discover something really special

These drinks packages can be added on to your cruise before travel and just paid for with your final bill, so if you already have a cruise booked with us or are thinking about making a booking, consider these options before you board. The money you save could pay for that excursion or treat in the spa

Yesterday whilst undertaking some training for Emerald Waterways River Cruises, I was given a preview of the world’s first discovery yacht. And it got me excited. The all-new Scenic Eclipse Discovery Yacht promises to set a new precedent in luxury ocean travel an it looks absolutely fantastic.

A new mega yacht, capable of sailing in polar waters carrying two helicopters and a submarine, sounds more like a billionaire’s toy than a cruise ship. Yet it is just that! Set to be launched on 31 August 2018, Scenic Eclipse offers a new level in cruising with boundless opportunities for exploration and discovery, yet also affording complete comfort and safety.

The ship will be developed to a very highly-detailed specification, and will deliver once-in-a-lifetime experiences for just 228 guests per itinerary. This should ensure that your time on board is as enriching, exclusive and stimulating as you could ever wish for.

All cabins will be suites with balconies and will include butler service. None of the suites will be smaller than 32 square metres. At 233 square metres, the two-bedroomed Owners’ Suite is the best room on board.

Eclipse will have six dining options including French, Italian and Pan-Asian restaurants. She will also have a heated pool with a retractable roof, a 240-seat theatre and for those keen to stay in shape, a gym which has a yoga and pilates studio and a spa.

Scenic Eclipse will offer invigorating itineraries to a number of destinations, including the Mediterranean, Antarctica, Northern Europe and the Arctic, the Caribbean and the Americas. Each journey has been carefully designed and crafted by their team of experts.

Prices start from £3895pp for a 10 night Eastern Mediterranean cruise on this 6-star world discovery yacht and your itinerary is complemented by the ultra all-inclusive service, which extends across every aspect of your voyage — from food and drink to exclusive excursions.

For further information or if you are interested in booking one of these or any other cruise then you can call me to discuss on 0161 798 2520 or e-mail jon@cruiseclubuk.com

You may have seen a lot of the cruise companies are starting to shout about their new promotions and its taken me a few days to asess them all and work out who’s doing what.

One that has stood out is the variety of free benifits on one of Europe’s much loved ships.

The Norwegian spirit is BACK in 2016! Everyone’s been asking for this much loved ship to sail back to Europe and NCL have listened.

With her medium size, personal spaces on board – award winning entertainment and generous staterooms – shes always been high scoring customer favorite.

Back for 2016 she’s cruising the beautiful med, the sun soaked canaries.

This is the question on everyone’s lips when it come to cruising! I am asked this on a regular basis so this blog should help you decide if drinks packages on cruise ships are worth it for you.

Most cruise lines now offer some form of package; whether it be as an early booking offer, included as standard or as an extra to add to your booking. This is great value if you can get it included in the price but each line do vary in price to add this as an extra.
