What’s Not Included In The Upfront Price?

Below is a description of the things that are not included in the upfront cost of the cruise:

Air Fare

The cost of airfare is not included in the upfront price of the cruise, but is almost always available for an additional charge. We’ll ask you where you are flying from and quote you the cruise line’s price or the best available price.

Alcoholic Beverages & Some Non-Alcoholic Beverages

Alcoholic beverages are not included in your cruise price, and since soft drinks come over the bar there is charge for them as well. Specialty coffees are also almost always additional. However, Some of our luxury cruises lines may include this feature.

Gratuities

Your personal service staff works hard for you while you’re enjoying your cruise, so please tip them before you disembark. Most cruise lines make it easy for you by automatically adding gratuities to your shipboard account, which is usually about $10 to 12 per person, per day. This amount covers your cabin steward and the waiters and assistants who have served you all over the ship.

Some Dining Options

Alternative dining options are all the rage onboard contemporary ships these days and the cruise lines have a couple of different ways of charging you extra for them.  For all restaurants other than the main dining room you should expect to find that reservations are required. There is a fee for that reservation that usually runs from $10-$40 per person and the gratuity for the meal may be additional.

Shore Excursions

Shore excursions are a very important part of your experience in each port of call, especially if you’ve decided to take the adventure route.

Photography

Your ‘welcome aboard’ photo is your first encounter with the ubiquitous ship photographers. They’ll be on hand to capture all the fun and excitement, and then sell it back to you for $20 for each 5 x 7.

Spa Treatments & Salon Services

Arrangements with onboard spas and salons has become one of the hottest new things with the cruise lines in the past few years as passengers are focusing more and more on their well-being.
