No longer is the all-inclusive cruise for the luxury traveller only, year on year the demand for the All Inclusive cruises is growing and they’re becoming more popular than ever before.
In 2014, over 70% of summer “holiday makers” chose an All Inclusive holiday, that’s the highest number ever… with more and more people enjoying the ease and hassle free option of having it all included, it's no wonder cruise lines have started to follow the trend.
The levels of inclusivity vary by cruise line, allowing every type of cruiser; families, couples, groups and new to cruise the opportunity to enjoy an All Inclusive holiday.
And why not? Your holiday should be all about soaking up the sights and attractions on board, not sweating the small stuff. For most people, the thought of not having to worry about a thing once on board is part and parcel of switching off and relaxing.
So in demand are these All Inclusive packages that we see cruise lines even deciding to throw in Free Tips as part of the holiday as well!
For those who feel they might not make the most out of a fully inclusive beverage package there are others, like Celebrity Cruises for instance, where you can opt for an all-inclusive wine or beer package, these are often available to suit a range of budgets meaning that everyone can enjoy the luxury of an All Inclusive experience.
With Royal Caribbean, the unlimited soda fountain package is the best deal for families with kids, starting from only $4.50 per day it is definitely good value for money as we all know how thirsty kids can get running about in the sun or in the pool - they also get a free Coca-Cola souvenir cup which always goes down a treat.
On Princess Cruises the All Inclusive beverage package is ideal for a group, couples or anyone new to cruise who likes to let their hair down and have fun, it really does offer you the chance to experience a luxury cruise at a very reasonable price. All alcohol served on board is of premium standard and as an All Inclusive passenger you have access to almost the entire bar menu with very generous allowance of all drinks up to $10, which the vast majority of are, including cocktails, wines, spirits and speciality coffees.
For the older, more experienced traveller who is unlikely to paint the town (as) red as the younger passenger, Fred Olsen Cruises offer a fantastic drinks package for just £10 per person per day when booked in advance. That’s a massive 50% saving compared to £20 when you book the package once on board.
Not only do passengers feel they make a saving before they even get on board, the fact that people feel less pressured to have saved up vast amounts of spending money before they go means they can relax knowing it is paid for. Feedback from our cruisers is that they find they have more money to treat themselves or their loved ones when on board at the various shops and attractions and on shore excursions - which at the end of the day can be the experiences which make the perfect holiday.
