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

Five night late availability cruise to Rouen and Honfleur on CMV's Marco Polo. Bargain price of £199 pp sharing inside cabin, £299 outside. No, you probably won't be sitting out on deck taking in the sunshine, but both Rouen and Honfleur are interesting places, and if you are keen to visit a continental Christmas market, this seems a good and very cheap way to do it.

Have had a look at the site and cannot find the basic information as to what is included?

Is the cruise all-inclusive, full-board or is it PAYGO?

Are there any excursions included or is everything extra?

If they cannot be bothered to offer that information on the booking page, it does make me wonder what the actual rather than the headline cost is?

The Marco Polo is a lovely ship.
It used to be an Icebreaker then a ferry now a liner must be 40 year old but a lot of people like it. Not usually all inclusive like the Tui ships.
@rugman - thank you for the link. Did I miss it on the cruise page because I still cannot find it?

Add £75 per person to cover the basics (including compulsory tips) plus soft drinks.

It seems that excursion prices can only be seen after booking.

So, unless I have this completely wrong (would not be the first time) to get a basic upgrade plus soft drinks plus car parking the minimum cost will be will be £301.50 per person plus excursion costs rather than the headline bargain price of £199.

Not saying it is bad value (I did vote hot), just more than a little misleading in terms of the headline price.
On P&O you can have the tips removed from the bill at customer services. Then you can pay who you like if you like.
You don't need to pay for the very expensive ship's excursions. Honfleur is easy walking distance from the berth. Rouen is slightly further to get to the cathedral square, but still walkable, or you can take a taxi or local bus for a very few Euros. And yes, the Marco Polo is a beautiful ship, over fifty years old, built in Russia. I saw this when doing a search for family who specifically want to travel on her. There was a television programme filmed about her a few years ago, Channel 5 I think. CMV is about as cheap and cheerful as cruises come, but I believe you'll struggle to find any land full board holiday at a comparable price.
About £683 per couple to include the basic alcoholic drinks package, tips and of course on board dining, and car parking
So 5 nights dining with all drinks, a couple of on board lunches and breakfast every day, that's a big chunk of money you save not dining out
I think it's great value
Honfleur is a nice place.
I've booked - anyone else?
Hoping to book tonight
