This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This is an amazing price for a 14 day all inclusive cruise to Antarctica with flights from London and 5* accommodation in Buenos Aires included. Outside cabin too. Plenty of availablity at or around this price in January/February.

Would have booked this in a heartbeat had I not made other plans for those months already

Some other things to note. There are pretty strict rules about landings in Antarctica, and restrictions to how many can be onshore at a time. This is why tourist journeys to Antarctica are nearly all done with smaller (100-200pax) vessels. I therefore assume this larger ship will only include scenic cruising in the Antarctic region.

Also the Drake Passage between Ushuaia and the Antarctic Peninsula is renowned as being one of the most tempestuous on earth. Don't expect a nice smooth crossing!

Just been on a cruise and the add ons are the worst. Drinks packages, food …Just been on a cruise and the add ons are the worst. Drinks packages, food packages, even 100 dollars for the internet for 4 days! Great experience but they have your eyes out


Not sure about Celebrity but Cunard and P&O allow you to pack a bottle of wine in your main luggage. I take a 2.25L box without problems. P&O have done away with gratuities as have many others.
Walk into town at ports of call (the buses are around £4 pp each way for a 5 min jaunt,walk it). Excursion prices are extortionate.
Find a local bus (do a bit of research before you go).
Forget the expensive internet packages. Use the free Wifi when you dock (dont use Telenor Maratime at sea £10 per mb seriously). Avoid drinks packages apart from the ones on NCL which seem good value for money.
Cheaper inside cabins are just as good expensive outside ones with their miserable dirty windows that you'll only ever look out of once. A balcony is over rated unless your going to the Fjords.
There are lots of other ways to keep the expense down.
Cruise companies make a great deal of their income from extras so chose your Cruise wisely unless your minted.

Decent
Can't go but would love to. However unless I'm missing something this is not all inclusive. Cannot see drinks are included which on Celebrity are expensive.

True..drinks not included. Take your own booze perhaps? I don't drink so never a consideration for me fortunately

a) you can't take your own booze on board
b) drinks packages are about £50 a day, each, so for 18 days that is soooo expensive.

Unless they give you the option of drinking tap water for the whole cruise, they will be having your eyes out for soft drinks too.

Celebitry do all inclusive but you can upgrade to brand drink there not much difference fab ship
There food is fab if I wasn’t going away on them dates I would go on there ships there 5 stars
It used to be the case on Princess / Celebrity / RC that you could purchase your wine online at a decent price from the gifts section of their website before the cruise and have it delivered to the cabin as a 'gift' (from yourself). Once aboard you had it sent to the dining room and enjoy it each night without the extortionate corkage fee. I know this as my parents asked me to do it for them each time they sailed. The saving was over $30 a bottle compared to the onboard price.
Having said that most cruise these days come with drinks packages so I doubt there is any need now.
I wouldnt let alcohol get in the way of what looks to be a fascinating cruise. The ship has great reviews and the food should be excellent. You can keep the extras down if you plan ahead. Theres no need for food packages or soft drinks packages. Theres plenty on board.
As for a drinks package I wouldn't bother. Way too expensive. Ive done several cruises without a tipple. Its not the be all end all (if it is you need a detox at the Priory). Pack some in your main luggage. If they confiscate it well tough luck. If you buy it at ports of call they will confiscate it, guaranteed. Make the most of the Captains night lmao.
My usual cruises are the Med, Canaries and Fjords. Same old same old. This looks intriguing. Scenery should be great. If I had 4K spare I would be doing this with the Missus. I will have to make do with the Med this Thursday on the Queen Victoria. Lovely ship tho.
Why can't people post cruise deals with the two critical bits of information cruise line/ship and date?
