5 cruise lines that offer great value All-Inclusive packages
Ask any cruiser why they prefer cruising to land holidays and you’ll hear phrases like “great value for money” and “can budget easily”. Which is true. Within the cost of your cruise you’ve already paid for several destinations, your room and usually some kind of dining.
Many cruise lines also sell All-Inclusive packages that offer better value for money than many hotels. Below are five cruise lines whose all-inclusive packages are amazing value for money and allow you to get on with your holiday without worrying about your bill at the end.
Saga Cruises specialise in small-ship experiences for the over 50s – with some of the best inclusions at sea. All meals (including speciality dining), a choice of wines with dinner, all onboard gratuities, 24 hour room service, shuttle buses and WiFi are included in the price. Most impressively however is the door-to-door chauffeur service. If you’re staying less than 250 miles from Dover, Portsmouth or Southampton, Saga Cruises they will pick you up (and even carry your bags).
Every passenger on board an NCL cruise will have entertainment, aqua parks, sports facilities, kids clubs and complimentary dining included. However, any passengers that opt for Premium All-Inclusive will receive no extra charges for premium beverages, speciality coffees, soft drinks, bottled water and any tips related to all-inclusive services.
Also – if you feel like treating yourself – passengers who stay in The Haven® or suite accommodation will be treated to gourmet dining, 250 minutes free WiFi per suite and $100 onboard spending money per suite – at no extra cost!
Three ships in the Marella fleet are all-inclusive by default: Marella Explorer, Marella Discovery and Marella Discovery 2. But if you have your eye on one of their other ships, you’re still in luck. We are offering a free all-inclusive upgrade on summer 2018 cruises on Marella Spirit, and a free all-inclusive upgrade on winter 2018 cruises on Marella Celebration and Marella Dream.
Plus upgrade to all-inclusive for only £10 per person, per night in summer 2018 on Marella Dream and Marella Celebration.
Regent Seven Seas
This super-luxury cruise line might not be the cheapest at face value, but when you learn what is all included in the fare you’ll realise that sometimes paying a bit extra is worth it. The usual things like 24-hour room service, dining, WiFi, shore excursions, and gratuities are included. But with Regent Seven Seas you’ll also received complimentary access to the fitness centre, spa and speciality restaurants as well as unlimited beverages, including premium spirits.
Most river cruises
We’ve already mentioned Saga (who offer both ocean and river cruises) but generally speaking river cruises are very generous with their inclusions. But if it’s fully all-inclusive that you are looking for we recommend Scenic Tours , Tauck, Uniworld and Crystal River Cruises. Uniworld, for example, includes all gratuities, exercise classes, shore excursions, bicycle hire, WiFi access, onboard entertainment, in-suite butler service, all dining and premium beverages. While Scenic River Cruises include WiFi, complimentary beverages, all gratuities, and shore excursions.
