We’ve talked about all-inclusive vacations before on the blog: what the term means, what benefits it implies, and why you might find one more appealing than a standard cruise. One of our partners, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, is a top provider of all-inclusive luxury cruises. Regent’s offerings on their all-inclusive cruises set an industry standard for quality and service. If you want to know more, read on: even if you don’t want to book a luxury or an all-inclusive cruise soon, you’ll have a better idea of what you deserve for your money the next time you shop for one.
The most important part of an all-inclusive cruise is that it live up to its name. Some such cruises may label themselves “luxury” but have hidden fees, while others will have excursions to shore where “suggested” activities aren’t included in the bill. It’s important that you make sure you book your cruise with a company that brings to light any such hidden fees if any at all. Many reliable cruise vendors pride themselves on a quality product; Regent is one of them, and you won’t have to worry about hidden fees on a Regent cruise.
Here are some of the things you might expect to have included in a truly “all-inclusive” vacation:
- Transportation. This includes airfare, transportation to and from any airports and hotels, points of departure, and the like. Ask your AffordableTours.com travel specialist about booking your all-inclusive cruise!
- Hotels. This can include a room the night of departure as well as any lodging for overnight stays on the cruise.
- Food. This includes meals on the ship as well as any meals at overnight locations.
- Beverages. This can cover beverages both on-board and with meals.
- Gratuities. The cost of gratuities for your servers will be included in your ticket price, so you don’t have to worry about carrying cash.
Regent promises all of these and more. They have transportation: Their luxury packages include round-trip airfare and free transfers between airport and ship. Their cruise packages include a luxury hotel package for overnight stays. Food and drink are well-covered, with free specialty restaurants, free 24-hour room service, free open bars and lounges, a minibar refreshed daily, and free unlimited beverages otherwise. Gratuities are pre-paid with your fare.
In addition to all these features, Regent’s cruises include other amenities. Some are handy conveniences, such as free WiFi throughout the ship. Entertainment options abound, with a flat-screen TV and media library in each suite, as well as live entertainment options ranging from guest lectures to theater performances. For relaxation, the cruises include sauna and steam rooms as well as fitness programs. And in an example of Regent’s personal touch, each guest gets a bottle of champagne as a welcome.
A good luxury cruise should provide top-flight amenities and be all-inclusive, so that you can travel in luxury and free from worry. If you’re looking to book a luxury cruise, visit AffordableTours.com to browse through Regent’s offerings this cruise season.
