All-inclusive Cruising Hottest Trend

Cruise lines have realized cruisers want to pay for their vacation upfront and then enjoy a vacation free from the worry of overspending. The solution has been to offer cruisers an all-inclusive cruising package. This gives passengers the opportunity to select and receive amenities such as on-board Internet, soft drink and alcohol packages, gratuities and shore excursions.

Celebrity Cruises upped the ante for all-inclusive cruising when they introduced the highly popular 3 for Free program. Now, other lines have started their own plans including an array of prepaid options that have set a new standard for all-inclusive cruising.  Prior only upscale, luxury cruise lines offered such great deals. But now, all cruise lovers can jump on board this hot trend.


All-inclusive Cruising – Value Plus Choice

So what freebies are on the table?  It varies by cruise line. For example, here are some of the perks being offered:

Norwegian Cruise Line

  • FREE unlimited premium open bar on the short-cruise itinerary for their Norwegian Sky ship that embarks from Miami beginning in 2016.

Royal Caribbean

  • On short-term cruises, guests will receive FREE Voom, a speedy Internet connection while out to sea.

Viking Ocean Cruises

  • Viking joined the ocean cruise scene Spring 2015. Their range of all-inclusive services include FREE unlimited Internet/WiFi, pre-paid gratuities, FREE shore excursions, complimentary wine with lunch and dinner service.

Celebrity Cruises

  • Celebrity, the leader of the all-inclusive cruising package, is offering a game changer with three new levels of all-inclusive offerings for guests who purchase ocean-view staterooms and above.
    • Go Big – Choose one freebie, the classic beverage package, prepaid gratuities, Internet at sea or a shipboard of $300/cabin
    • Go Better – Get all four of the above for a slightly higher cruise fare
    • Go Best – All of the above except the beverages package gets an upgrade to premium alcohol

If you’d like more information on these offers, give us a call. Also, we are happy to book a cruise for you on any of these lines, as well as many others.  Smooth Sailing!
