Excellent price for a cruise with all return UK flights being included (hold luggage included).

1) Book your flight from London Gatwick to Marseille through Easyjet - the example I give here is for the 14th November (one day before the cruise departs) but of course you can change the date and travel to Marseille earlier if you would like more time to explore the area. Ensure you add on the 23kg hold baggage (£20.99). Total cost = £23.99p/p for the fare and £20.99p/p for the baggage = £44.98p/p

Hotels in Marseille are not included in the price and need to be booked separately.

2) Book your cruise through Logitravel . The website is French so ensure you use Google Translate (the plugin works well). The Itinerary of the cruise is given below the price given is for an inside / interior cabin) with the cruise departing Marseille on the 15th November and arriving at Miami on the 2nd December. The cruise is full board although alcoholic drinks are excluded. Tips are 10 euros per day per person although these can be removed if you ask at the front desk. Total price = €445p/p (£388.19p/p)

3) Book your flight from Miami to London Gatwick through Norwegian . Example date 10th December (this gives you one week in Miami after your cruise) although you can of course choose an alternative date (just ensure you choose a date on or after the 3rd December e.g 4th Dec). Also ensure you select the LowFare+ option as this includes checked baggage and a meal . £160p/p. Hotels in Miami are not included in the price and need to be booked separately.

Suprised no stop in the azores to break up that week at sea?


I suspect its a repositioning cruise, therefore its about getting the ship to where it needs to be for the next season in the right timeframe, not about getting in the most destinations.

This did look quite exciting, but hearing it is Costa makes me think thrice, what is there tipping policy these days, can you cancel them?

More importantly looking at the ship I think it is really going to be less than smooth across the Atlantic because it is not deigned for such cruises really.

From the original post "Tips are 10 euros per day per person although these can be removed if you ask at the front desk."

Shes a big enough ship, which would help with stability. 6 days at sea is a long time though.

Timings dont suit us but if it did i'd be interested in the price of the alcoholic drinks package.

Ah yes, thanks for pointing that out.

I spent 38 days on the identically sized Queen Elizabeth, Singapore/Southampton and we had a couple of choppy days even though that route is pretty calm and it wasn't in winter either. I have done the Atlantic route in Spring in a large ship and it was very rough, I would imagine a small ship in Winter is a little risky on the stomach!

She holds 2800 which is a reasonable size, but yes i take your point, out in the middle of the atlantic in the middle of winter it could be rough at times.

But then thats why its cheap - most likely a repositioning cruise, not a great time of year to be doing it and not ideal its so long at sea.

You pays your money....

Is there a direct link for the cruise I'm not seeing it on the easyJet page?
Surprisingly the ship doesn’t get great reviews...
Please
I would avoid Costa @ all costs. Had a recent bad experience on Med cruise with them. Their approach to food is to offer little variety thus avoiding food waste.
Their drinks packages are ridiculous. Don’t offer soft drinks packages by duration of cruise but by no of drinks you have.

The cruise can be accessed here: Logitravel

The website is in French so probably best to use the Google Translate plugin
This has to be a hot deal. I guess most potential passengers will be retired like me. Well done to Reindeer for researching the flights around the cruise dates. Wouldn't worry about the potential rough seas and if we hadn't already booked to go to Naples across that time period would have booked.. Very similar to the MSC deal we went on a couple of years ago that was 23 days at sea with return fares for 729pounds - that included 7 Caribbean Islands.

I know this is hotukdeals but don't remove the tips even if you can as that is a massive chunk for the crews wages.

Going from the straits of Gibralter to the Caribbean generally will be a very calm crossing. Why do so many people think that this will be rough? I have done it 3 times and it has been pancake flat each time. The only rough bit was crossing the Bay of Biscay which this cruise doesn't even do.

The majority of the cruise days are in the tropics 7-16 at least so I wouldn't particularly call that winter particularly. Day 4 and onwards will be warm.

Knowing the French, it will probably be €250pp

I always wonder if France or rest of Europe is such a great place why people are willing to pay thousands of pounds for UK entry.

Because they do not have a clue what is in here. They think is good, as The UK portrays itself great in the world, so when you keep telling people you are the best, you've got everything, the NHS is the best in the world, others want to punish you because they are jealous and so on, people will start to believe you. They come in here and start telling stories at home how they make lots of money, live in a mansion, drive an expensive car and so on, when in fact they work in a car wash. But they feel embarassed to tell the true, if everyone who comes in The UK succeeds, how can you not? So, others are following!

In france and germany it is difficult to get by without french/german. They feel at home here, ask any visiting Asian cricket team. In places like brick lane or southall, hardly anyone speaks English.
With so many days at sea the ship has to be excellent with lots to do onboard. This isn’t the ship or cruise line for this. The reviews generally agree.

It's normal to speak the language of the country you live in. I wonder who's fault is this not being imposed in here, but certainly this has nothing with The EU. I personally had to pass the 'Life in The UK' test, which you can't pass it if you do not speak English at a well above average level. Quite a tough test, most of the questions are related to politics, history, geography, general knowledge, etc, even my English wife was not able to meet the benchmark, while the test supervisor suggested it took him about 5 tries to meet the benchmark. I think the test is imposed if you apply for citizenship, so to me, these who can't speak English are either born in this country living in a closed community, either illegal residents or permanent residents who never applied for citizenship. I think the test should be imposed to everyone who wants to live in this country and wants legal status here.

Other Nationalities
If you are not a Canadian or American citizen, nor a member of the European Union, the visa rules are particular for each country. You can find visa information corresponding to your situation and country of origin on French consular website.

Basically unless your country has an agreement with France to waive it then you need a visa. If we leave with no deal we have no agreement, so until one is made then yes a visa is likely.

That means French will need visa to come to UK too?

Of course, unless an agreement is made. That's kind of the point of taking back our borders wasn't it? Well, apart from the Irish one we'll leave open for anyone to walk across
