when you look at what is included its not a bad price
#2
Full board and entertainment and hopefully some winter sun!! I don't have enough holiday left but would book if I did.
#3
Sorry but its not hot - look at vacationstogo.com and these cruises start from $1000 dollars.

A cruise can be great value although I'd prefer to fly to Miami and do a Caribbean cruise

Same **** different island.

I've been on two terrific Med cruises with RC and have booked for another in June. Really great value and terrific boats/service/food, etc. Highly recommended. An inside cabin is fine - you only sleep in it.

HOWEVER - not sure that I would want to be crossing the Bay of Biscay (twice) in November. 4 days at sea and weather probably not good enough to enjoy them.

You also have to allow for cost of drinks, shore trips, tips, etc.

great company this staff very helpful

it is an average price - £71 per night.

For it to be hot it would have to be under £60 per night and preferably under £50.

Ah, but with this one you haven't got to worry about ash clouds or airline strikes!

Godd price, but bad timing. Heat added anyway.

Any idea whether kids pay the same ?

PS: For an extra £50 you might as well go during half term in october :thumbsup:

Yes you can, you even get more protection as you can get refunded if the price drops. Over here in the UK we don;t have that protection, which is why when you book a hotel in the states, you can ring up, cancel it and get you money back. Over here, they just pocket it and call it none refundable.

You need to find out if tips are included or not before you book. In this deal, they aren't.

We had a balcony last time we did a med cruise and we would always try to find the extra to get one, it made the cruise in our opinion not having to hunt down a sunbed on deck, we could just stay on the balcony when the ship was pointing the right way.
#16
I would love to try a cruise but when I went on a boat trip in Majorca a few years ago I was really, really seasick and couldn't wait to get off. Someone told me that a cruise is different as those large cruise ships never bounce around the way a smaller day trip one does .......wish I could go on one for a day just to test it!
#17
So....6 full days out of 12 all you are doing is sailing all day with no stop or excursion?.....poor itinery that, who on earth wants to spend 6 whole days on a boat trying to pass time?...surely you're better off getting a cruise that has more port time
#18
We went on this for our Honeymoon, fantastic ship. The price includes your meals and it's nothing like that all inclusive crap you get when you go away, the food is 1st class and so much choice. We went last September but set sail straight into Hurricane Danny so it was pretty rocky even on a big ship but we were just unlucky. My wife was pretty sick but we bought some wrist bands form the shop and that sorted her right out. The bay of biscay isn't that bad on a ship like this as long as there isnlt a hurrican outside. Oh and to who evere suggested going in half term thanks but would prefer not too, the ques for everything would be massive and wouldn't want loads of kids running about, Will happen to me one day though.
#19
Spenspuma - Spending 6 days at sea on ship like this is anything but boring.!! Go on their website and take a look at everything ther is to do. There's the flo rider, rock climbing, loads of bars and places to eat, sun bathing, gym, ice skating, Jacuzzis, arcades, Live bands oftn on around the pool area. We spoke to loads of people on our cruise and not one said they were bored.
#20
Excellent deal and great company

Very friendly and helpful staff

When I called I spoke to a girl named Karen, who was happy to answer my queries and look for a deal that was best suited to the needs of me and my family - her direct line is 0208 544 6388 if you're thinking about going for this deal

#21
Sounds good. How much are tips and drinks ontop then?

Me wife reckons our 11 year old boy would love this.

Whenever I try and book online to get a price, I get an ERROR in red, call us up type message, has anyone managed to book?
#22
RC are great, and if you like your food you will be in heaven! You dont have to pay for any, even room service, as it is included in the price.

And yeah, you can get cheaper cruises, but not to this standard.

Caz42, try Stugeron next time, it's a travel/sea sickness tablet. A lot of people swear by it. After a very bad experience on a diving boat I took some of these every day for a week in some very rough crossings on the Red Sea earlier in the year. Wasn't ill once!

Give it a go the big ships harly move (most of the time)

There are a few short cruises but these days they tend to be around £100pppd

If you don't mind flying there are some cheaper ones even after including the cheap flights.

i used to work on cruise ships and the rocking really isnt very noticable on ships this size.. however we did used to bite and suck green apples and ice cubes to cure seasickness :)

Royal Caribbean offers a prepaid gratuity plan that specifies a charge of $9.75 per person, per day, that is charged to your onboard tab. The breakdown is as follows: $3.50 for dining room waiter, $2 for assistant waiter, $3.50 for stateroom attendant and 75 cents for the head waiter. Those passengers opting for My Time Dining must enroll in this plan, and the tips are nonrefundable; for all others, it's optional.

It is considered sporting to tip 15 to 20 percent for spa treatments. (I always tip on the lower end of the scale if I've gotten a hard product sell as part of the treatment.) Gratuities are automatically included in drinks, from sodas to cocktails

The ships are that good that you DONT want to even get off them!

For those asking about kids prices IIRC Royal Carribean do not offer much, if anything, in the way of discount for kids sharing a cabin with 2 adults.

Thanks for the tip Smurf, have taken a note of them. Will also keep the green apples in mind that someone else mentioned......never heard of using those!

The spa bill adds the tip automatically, so don't do what we did and double tip.

And yes, you don't need to tip extra for drinks.

We are booked on this very cruise, myself and my wife, plus four kids, paid £2K now that aint bad is it!

We are in one cabin, family inside with promenade view, its basically two inside cabins opened out, large bathroom with a bath, walk in wardrobe, double bed, seperate room with bunks for two kids, plus a convertible sofa bed for two more, had this room before and they are great!

I believe now that booking your cruise with a US agent is not as easy as it used to be, many of teh cruise companies have placed an embargo on UK residents doing this and not acceptiong the booking, not sure if this applies to RC or not though, and by the way RC dont really want you to get off teh ship when in port unless you are doing a shore excursion arranged through them as its not in there interest to have you off the ship as you are spending money elsewhere, hence why they cram the ship full of activities to help you spend your money!

Beware though that there are many additional costs involved with any cruise, but you can easily avoid all of teh additional fees if you are careful with your money, its quite simple.

Anyway, on this cruise in a few months time and I cant wait!!! Yes the weather for the first couple of days down and then on teh return might not be much cop, but who cares, you are on holiday, theres plenty to do!!!

By the way these cruises are quite often available with free parking which for an 11 night cruise can cost around £100, plus very often you can get $100 per person on board credit, for the first two in the room, so check those offers out as well, also the kids or anyone in the cabin over and above the first two people on this cruise have been charged at £202 per person, so the extra people in the room are quite reasonable.

If I work out what I have paid on an average per person per night price it works out at approx. £30 now what holiday can you go on and have pretty much everything you need included for that price??
#35
Jeez, what is it with this 'tip' culture ?....its all tip,tip,tip....its just a con

I wish I got umpteen 'tips' every day..just for doing my job.

Should be a law against it really....there's just no need

Cool, my eldest is 16 and I didn't fancy paying a full adult price, so I could get 2 adults + 2 "Kids" in 1 room for 800+800+200+200? approx

I have two kids and I am looking for our first cruise. What type of room did you book? I just do not fancy sharing the same room as the kids.
#38
Went on this cruiseliner last September round Med excellent food, and brillant facilities especially the surfing. Drinks are a bit on the pricey side and charged in $. Would highly recommend:thumbsup:
#39
fantastic ship... was on this a couple of years back and it really is refreshing not to fly... we had a hefty drive from the north east, but it was all part of the holiday really!

we had an outside one, wasnt very cheap, but not too pricey... its great for the kids though as they can have the full reign of the ship in safety, but theres tons for them to do..
