Depending on your taste, have enjoyed P & O, great time, welcoming., Princes, very smart - a touch of class,. RC free for all, a touch of chav. They all represent great value , super entertainment, you make your own choice.

The food in the formal dining area on Thomson is very good, easily on par with RC. The drinks on Thomson are all inc and all tips are inc so much what you pay for the holiday is all it's going to cost you.
RC isn't the same and that's my point, you may get a little credit for drink but that's soon gone and if you enjoy a day in the sun when at sea enjoying cocktails brought to your deck chair by the bar staff it'll cost nothing on Thomson but it will on RC. Enjoy and keep missing out.
It is £649.00 per person (minimum of 2).

How much is food? All inclusive options or pay per day etc?
All food (and it's usually very good on cruises) is included in the price, as is tea, coffee and squash drinks.
For alcoholic and other drinks, you can either pay as you go (actually, it will be added to your cabin account which you settle at the end of the cruise) or pay a fixed amount per day (usually quite expensive - $50 to $100 per person depending on cruise line/ship) to upgrade to all-inclusive.
We're going on a Med cruise with Princess cruises in May, and we've decided to see how much we spend on drinks on the first full day and then decide if it's worth paying for the all-inclusive option for the rest of the week.

Not guessing, have been on a Thomson cruise and am going on another in June. My friends have been on both royal Caribbean, Thomson and some other cruise companies and provided that feedback as I was initially considering a royal Caribbean cruise before I booked my Thomson cruise. I like to enjoy myself, eat well, drink well so for me it would be far more costly on RC, if you have a sparrows appetite and don't drink much perhaps you can stay within reasonable budget but as I was talking about all inclusive my reference was pointing towards potential clientele with similar requirements as me, that have a good appetite and like a good drink!
Like I said - you're guessing - and have been incorrectly informed by the sound of it. You can eat all day on RC (if you're so inclined); in fact food is a major draw for any cruise line. Perhaps the difference is Thompson is McDonalds level whereas RC is decent restaurant quality? I considered a Thompson cruise once but then read the reviews and realised why they're so cheap. Maybe you were the drunken yob that fellow passengers were complaining about?

I always pay the gratuities I only mentioned that you can have them taken off if required.
Typical brits trying to take tips off. These people work for barely anything, have some respect and factor tips into the cost of the trip.
CRUISEER
You can ask for the gratuities to be taken off the bill. You just go to guest services on board.

Staff get paid peanuts, below minimum wage, they rely on tips.
In search box put name of ship and date 06/11/17
Where do I find the deal? Looking under Smart packages, can't see anything with this itinerary and price...

I wasn't aware that shareholders got an onboard credit. As I have two cruises booked for this year (Royal Carr ibean and Celebrity) it may be worth it. Who did you use to buy the shares?

Hi

Sorry missed your response. I use Sippdeal as their charges seem low. Be aware you need 100 RCI shares for Royal Caribbean or Celebrity On Board Credit which will currently cost around £7800.
Don't worry about the travel agents being able to price this much lower than RCI,
Cruise lines sell at extra discounts through agents that package to hide the true discounts on the cruises to those that have paid more.

Sold out at this price. Only outside cabins left at £679 pp.
Tricky company Cruise Nation , be careful
Cruise nation have been amazing. Upfront with whats included and a stupid price..however i would not do an MSC cruise again..loud and rough Pontins on the sea at best...smoking by pools, food was ok. Entertainment was tedious as so many languages and not our taste at all. We had a fab time tho as found a place to enjoy our evenings on deck with a bottle of wine watching the surf..and lovely days in wonderful ports. The ship was clean and staff were polite and kind. If you are on a budget do it. If its a special special occasion Cunard :) to die for lol

Just come back from the cruise from the med to the Caribbean on the msc poesia no complaints at all very good value for money.
How was the food and the entertainment? Really interested, have never cruised with MSC, only P&O, Cunard, very interested though! Thanks
I was on the Fantasia back in August , the first time I had ever been with MSC and I wouldn't go back. I completed the feedback form and told them even if i won 1 of the free cruises I wouldn't take it. I was so disappointed in them. The food was always cold and bland. They didn't ensure the dress standards were followed in the buffet, which meant the passengers didn't use the hand sanitiser and they would come in with bare feet in swim suits oh and 1 girl decided to dry her hair at the table while we were eating. The passengers were rude and would have knocked you down to get to the front of the queue. The staff were very pleasant but were surprised if you said "please" or "thank you" to them as they weren't used to it from the passengers. I would not recommend MSC to anybody.
Thank you for your open and honest experience... Does not sound like my bag at all... one to miss, me thinks!

This is a cracking deal for the number of days cruising and included flights.
Yes, flights back from Genoa are extra, but to put this into context, I've just paid £499 for a 7-night cruise from Southampton to Guernsey/Bordeaux/Bilbao/La Coruna on 6th May.
Heat from me!
Which cruise is the 7 night one? if u don't mind me asking
Hi orinocojazz. It's the Crown Princess (cruise 3712), booked through Broadway Travel. £499pp was for an inside cabin (which the cruise in this post will be) so we upgraded to a balcony which was £699pp.
Prepaid tips are quoted as £75pp (for the week) but I will probably get these removed, as I always tip individually as and when deserved.
Car parking for the week (8 days, actually) right on the dock (so no transfer or long walk) was £92 using a company called CPS (cruiseparking.co.uk).
Post back if you'd like any more info.


Thank u WillieGophar!

what's the point of going on a cruise in the winter
good for sightseeing as places are interesting and will not be busy over winter - weather could be an issue - not a sunbathing cruise thats for sure!
Cruise only £159pp hotels on the mainland can be found cheap and flights tend to be cheap in Nov(not checked).

Nice price even with the extras, grats transfers and a bag.
depending on where the hotel is transfer on public could be very cheap.

weather pot luck been in Dec and it was fine, ports will not be too busy which is nice.
Summer is just too hot and places are packed.

A bit pricy for NCL,

cruise nation often don't include bags or transfers in the pricing..

Cruise only is £260 might be cheaper sorting out your own flights/hotel.
I did a 7-8 night Norway cruise from Liverpool with Cruise and Maritime, granted it was only an inside cabin but it was £299pp in June. Very often you see sub £400 cruises and October isn't a great time for Norway and the fjords.
I'm sorry but I'm finding it hard to see the deal value in this.
It's £83.17pp per day, this includes the Barcelona stay which I assume is self catering/room only.
I've booked a 12 night Thompsons cruise, all inclusive drinks & food, flights & tranfers for £62.17pp per day.
andycs
Does it include transfers from the airport to ship & return.
Flights from Gatwick only.
When I used them you have to pay for the transfers e.g local transport but the for 6 nights £499 balcony,hotel and flights it's a steal in my opinion.
andycs
Its for 3 people only, total price comes to £1497, carn't book online either.
Correct you call them and do it over the phone.. Cruise Nation are very good.. did a Hamburg to Soton for wives 40 Bday present, and it was a very good deal.

Weather in the med is certainly a lot warmer than UK at that time of year. Take a hoodie but over past few years I've been in Barcelona in early January theirs certainly been no need for a jacket!
:P

As you know, the weather at that time of the year really is pot luck.
It can be very cold in Spain, althought generally warmer that here in the UK, and it can also be very wet indeed.

Good thinking, I checked vacationstogo.com, cruise is $699, so about £490, doesnt include filghts and the accomodation in Barcelona that comes with this one

There is a problem comparing the headline prices of cruises from US websites and the UK websites.

The UK website includes all the charges (with the exception of the 'discretionary' service charge). The US websites don't include taxes, fees and port expenses (or the 'discretionary' service charge).

The $699 price you saw is for the non-assigned cabin and doesn't come with the free drinks package (i.e it is the £579 cabin).

The assigned cabin that does come with the drinks package and costs $899. However the $899 doesn't include the taxes and fees which are added on right at the end and bump the price up to $1,070.22.

Also, and this is a BIG issue, the drinks package on the UK website is really free (if you pay the extra £100 for the assigned cabin).

However for people booking through the American website they have to pay a "service charge" on the 'free' drinks (you know how the Americans love to tip), and this adds $156.42 onto the cost.

So the $899 is now $1,226.64, about £854 (and that doesn't include flights). So that makes the UK price of £679 with flights very cheap.

That is good for a Xmas date check the usa price with diy flights
Cruise nation flights often don't include bags and transfers.

You are correct that Cruise Nation don't include bags and transfers, but having used them a few times for cruises, for the flight prices I have found what they charge for the flights is pretty much what I would have paid booking directly.

As for bags, you could get away with hand luggage only. This is an NCL cruise, so people dressed smartly will be wearing their least ripped jeans and a T shirt, it isn't Cunard.

Virtual Insanity
It's £59 pp so for £118 you only need - night in Edinburgh, 5 course meal and return petrol.

Return petrol? Do you already have your vehicle in Scotland?
and where does the bus drop you off in Newcastle? Anywhere near the Ferry Terminal...

Was on Oceana last year for 14 night cruise and great ship not too large , nice itinerary as well go for it you can't go wrong at that price.
Just remember on the first morning to queue with the rest of seasoned passages at help desk to fill the forms for to say you dont want to pay the gratuities otherwise they will be billing you. On nearly all cruises except Costa you are not obliged to pay gratuities if you dont want to.

Link doesn't work. Accessed the cruise through Cruise Nation website, but cruise itinery seems not to include 3 day New York stay.
The 'fight back' in your title... Does that mean you'd need to fight to get back? Would that mean you're cruising for a bruising? :)
I have done it and it was amazing. This price is amazing too. Very tempted.
I've never done it but crossing the Atlantic in January doesn't sound like a relaxing trip - anyone experienced it ?

Tips are not mandatory on almost every cruise line. They get added on automatically with most cruise lines, but can be removed if you ask at the desk. The only cruise line that make them mandatory is Costa.
Yes, but they nearly all state that the tips are mandatory, infact there is never any mention of being able to remove tips in their booking processes, but I too have requested tips be removed a couple of times and they then adhere to your request.

Cozumel is a dump

Thanks for you in-depth review.
Cozumel is a dump
With things like this, one man's meat is another man's poison. For me, it's poison. I did a similar cruise many years back from Miami around the Caribbean for 5 or 6 days with Carnival cruise lines. Hated virtually every minute of it. Packed in like sardines to start. 2500 passengers and a 1000 crew. Unless you are wealthy the cabin is likely to be smaller than a prison cell.

You cant take booze onboard (except one bottle of wine per person). So captive audience in the bars, so guess what prices are like.... ;-) Also, you are issued with a Ship's 'credit card' to pay for everything, so it's difficult to keep track of spending. I did, and had an erroneous item placed on my bill which was hassle to get removed. If one were cynical, you might say this was deliberate.

Full of very loud American's, entertainment on deck consisted of things like 'Men's hairy chest competition'. Also, drinking age reduced from normal 21 years to 18. So lots of American teenagers on the sauce.

Call me snooty by all means. If you don't mind all that then you will enjoy.

Oh one positive if you like food: You will not go hungry. If I recall correctly, early risers breakfast, main breakfast, mid morning snacks, lunch, tea, dinner and midnight feast.

If you have just booked, you will know how much they charge for luggage. Cruise Nation are notorious for unavoidable extras and routinely charge £75 to £100 per suitcase.
Please let people know the extra costs you've had to pay.
luggage was standard airline prices when we booked and went in summer! there was a £50 booking fee if i recall which still made our deal £650 each for a balcony cabin with cunard 3 nights in Rome and flights v £1300 each direct with Cunard just for the cruise! Have you actually booked with them????? People on our cruise were repeat guests some had paid £299 for Costa deals and didnt expect it to be legit but it was!
I've not booked with them no, but I have made enquiries to cruise nation. For the flights to Barcelona they wanted £75 per suitcase. There were other extras that weren't included (I don't mean drinks packages or gratuities either.)
maybe it varies by package but we paid £649 each 3 nights rome, flights, 7 night cruise queen vic in august. I paid taxi/trains to and from port/airport as and when..
I'm sure that's the case and I'm only going on personal experience in my enquiries.
A trip I almost booked (I booked something different in the end) from Venice with Royal Caribbean next August and came with free flights. Cruise Nation wanted to charge £75 per case, iglu was included. They'd added an extra cost that was free with the cruise companies own offer.
thats naughty if they did. Have never looked iglu..what kind of deal did you get? im looking RC for next summer :)
Yes, I have booked with Iglu. I did find them good and I did manage to haggle the price down a bit. i didnt however book the RC trip as I thought the cabins sounded far to small. But this was the trip that cruise nation quoted £75 per case.
Not sure if Ive chosen wisely with the cruise I did book with Iglu for a family cruise - and it was much more expensive than the RC trip, but we'll see. Ive also booked for a trip direct with Silversea in April. Love their ships.
we would have two cabins so i need a deal lol

We have 2 cabins for the second one. (One balcony.for us and the kids for the inside cabin.) The first trip is without kids. Bliss. :D which is just as well as it's a 6* all inclusive. I couldn't justify the cost, but were making it for a special treat.
Good price for the package. We did the same in May this year and stayed in Mestre which is a 15 minute bus journey from the mainland into Venice itself. Mestre has a lot of good restaurants and bars if you want to eat there in the evening. If you drink more than about five alcoholic drinks on board per day, the inclusive package is worthwhile. Luggage was standard Jet2 rates. Transfers by taxi were very reasonable.
Nice

Yes, I have booked with Iglu. I did find them good and I did manage to haggle the price down a bit. i didnt however book the RC trip as I thought the cabins sounded far to small. But this was the trip that cruise nation quoted £75 per case.
Not sure if Ive chosen wisely with the cruise I did book with Iglu for a family cruise - and it was much more expensive than the RC trip, but we'll see. Ive also booked for a trip direct with Silversea in April. Love their ships.

we would have two cabins so i need a deal lol

If you have just booked, you will know how much they charge for luggage. Cruise Nation are notorious for unavoidable extras and routinely charge £75 to £100 per suitcase.
Please let people know the extra costs you've had to pay.
luggage was standard airline prices when we booked and went in summer! there was a £50 booking fee if i recall which still made our deal £650 each for a balcony cabin with cunard 3 nights in Rome and flights v £1300 each direct with Cunard just for the cruise! Have you actually booked with them????? People on our cruise were repeat guests some had paid £299 for Costa deals and didnt expect it to be legit but it was!
I've not booked with them no, but I have made enquiries to cruise nation. For the flights to Barcelona they wanted £75 per suitcase. There were other extras that weren't included (I don't mean drinks packages or gratuities either.)
maybe it varies by package but we paid £649 each 3 nights rome, flights, 7 night cruise queen vic in august. I paid taxi/trains to and from port/airport as and when..
I'm sure that's the case and I'm only going on personal experience in my enquiries.

Can anyone tell me if the ships are noisy (with piped music) like Carnival ships. We are retired and liking for a quiet cruise.
just come back off msc armonia.. been on nearly every other cruise line in the world and msc are the worst.

worse than

costa and thomson and they were pretty bad..
Avoid MSC and Costa

Is this for 1 or 2 people ?
Be careful the price you see is not the price you pay. Cruise nation charges many different fees on top

So, for £13k I can spend the entire year on a cruise, fed and watered??
If so, that's the immigration problem solved. Putting everyone on a boat like this works out cheaper than b&bs and social money!
What immigration problem? The one the Daily Mail made up to keep people like you dumb?
Dumb? In dumb language, for you to understand, times have changed and we ARE on the way out of the EU.

In 15 years we've had a near 9% population increase, with no equivalent rise in housing, health care, policing or schools. To say it will be a landslide vote is the understatement of the century, yet there are people like you with eyes wide shut believing otherwise.

There is an ever increasing amount of bitter, angry and affected young who feel utterly they have no hope of buying a home. Possessing less than their parents. Europe as an entity is now in the end game, the UK leaving is an absolute certainty.

I look forward to responding to any reply from you in about 3 years from now.
Also check if your transfers in Orlando and Barcelona are included. The Norweigan long haul flights do not normally include luggage or food/drinks so you would need to check this also. The drinks package that is included may have limits so only certain beers/wines and cocktails up to say $10 - over this you would have to buy your cocktails and beers/wines not included in the package.
Hidden fees? Not really hidden but there are the gratuities per day, around £8.50pp. When you get to port you might want to go off and do something, book yourself, ship excursions are expensive. Internet is mega expensive, as are supplies of 'stuff' if you run out. There is no laundry on NCL but they do have a mid cruise laundry offer. Alcohol costs a lot if you are not on the package and there are some cover charges to the premier restaurants and dining experiences (but we never paid for food or drink, we took cans of soft drinks on). The casinoncan cost if you get roped in, plus bowling if its on that ship. None of which you have to do, we didn't.

Tread carefully Cruise Nation are famous for add on fees. Service charges, credit cards etc. Worth shopping around with other agents that do not charge Service Fees, whatever that means?
Emarkation and disembarkation hell. Never again.

Prob best not to go overboard with the all inclusive drinks before you go ashore in Marseille, Palermo and Genoa!
How come?
rough locals is the implication, I think, need your wits about you...
Indeed. Marseille is full of crime and has one of the highest crime rates in France. Palermo is infamous for bag snatchers on mopeds and Mafia. Genoa just a bit of a rough port town. That said stick to the touristy areas and centres and you will be fine.

Yer just not selling it to me!!....... :|

Greece is lovely for tourists, ignore the haters

With Greece in such turmoil, it may be safer to take a rowing boat out on the Serpentine.
September can be a nice time of the year in London.
It would be a lot cheaper to take a boat out on Finsbury Park Lake or even Greenwich Park Lake ( during school holidays ). The Serpentine costs £29 hour for 2 adults with 2 children.

For a second I thought you were comparing a 1 hour boat hire with a 1 week med cruise including all your meals.............

Oh wait, you did!

Msc cruises do child friendly and children are free up to age 17. Two per cabin!!!!


msc opera last year..the kids have to climb on your beds to get in their bunks..3/4 of the ship were seasick (no stabilising bars apparently) The kids club was fab entertainment hit and miss.....read reviews before you book. It was cheap tho!

Cunard apparently do 4 in a room too ive just noticed on their site.
Does anyone have any experience of actually booking a cruise with CruiseNation?
You can't book online and when you dial 08000736487 you just go on permanent waiting.
I called at 18:10 last night and queued right up until 20:10.
Queued for an hour this morning and got cut off... eventually spoke to a guy who bumped the price up by adding booking fees and luggage supplements....

Heat added. We have kids though so not for us :( do you get such a thing as child friendly cheap cruises?
Did a Caribbean Carnival cruise for Christmas last year and they're fine. Not the best but far from the (Costa) worst. Would go on them again and this is a great price!

Does anyone know about the Princess shore excursions? Is there anyway to get cheaper deals elsewhere? This is our first time going on a cruise ship, after checking we would probably take 3 excursions, 1 Pompeii, 1 Pisa + Florence and 1 Milan. However we do not know what we are going to do at the other ports and we can't take all the excursions because it works out quite expensive. We would be going through these ports:
1. Sicily
2. Salerno
3. Cannes (France)
4. Barcelona

For Barcelona, I suggest taking a cab who will take you around for 2-3 hours for less than 60-70 euros - u just need to haggle a bit.

Sicily i think- u can just walk around.

Great deal, just bought the wife a ticket. Hope they've got an Italian captain...
15% service charge. Drinks package around £20 per person per day and 7 euros (£5.40ish) per day compulsory gratuities(service charge) to add on. Still a fantastic deal and well worth the mony.

Have cruised on Costa Magica and loved it. Loved the entertainment in the dining room during the evening meal! Great fun.

We went after the Costa Concordia and the safety drill was extremely well organised. Definitely something Costa are hot on since the Concordia disaster.

Great find o.p. How did you get the flight from Liverpool?. It just shows Luton.
if they have already had problems, chances are their safety measures will be spot on and they are trying to get the confidence back from the public - good find - enjoy
I did Costa cruise on Concordia month before Concordia sank. Put me off cruises for life.
