Thomson Destiny, Thomson Emerald,Thomson Spirit. If you have missed the free all inclusive upgrade then Thomsons charge £149pp. We have been on Thomson cruises 6 times all different ships, and always gone all inclusive. Its wonderful not to have a nasty bill at the end of your holiday and all types of drinks are included, all spirits, selected cocktails.It also makes for a friendlier ship as no one is going to get stuck standing a round at the bar and as 4 ladies travelling together we aren't seen as a threat financially at the bar! Jusat tried to book Island cruises (simply just for a chnage to Thomsons) sailing Sept 18th this year, but its too late to get their all inclusive deal, therefore we are waiting for a last minute Thomson deal. Just wish there was more choice of all inclusive ships out there, definitely the way to cruise!
Some travel agents have these special groups where you can buy the package or some of the cruise lines to encourage you to book early have these packages that they give away, I know that Island have one at the moment. Otherwise see if you can purchase onboard - we have purchased the wine package several times.
I know Thomson Destiny does one, because we're going on 30th August for 2 weeks and we got it when we booked - free upgrade to all-inclusive! Mind you, we booked May 2006! I'm sure most of the cruise ships do this.
Island escape only island star does not do it.
Thompson Destiny, we were offered it when we got a late booking 5 days before departure, but we had to pay £149 each for the week, if you are big drinkers its worth it, if not the prices are reasonable.
