Even with an amicable discussion (amazingly nobody has insulted anyone, as is usually the case) the comments made by some people are very loaded and typify what is wrong with the tipping culture. A reasonable argument is spoiled by comments such as: "If you want to be a Scrooge . . . . ", ". . . if you want to be as mean as that. . ." and so on. What you are doing is telling people they are wrong in a round about way and dismissing their opinion according to your own standards. I have become very aware of a backlash against tipping particularly in poor countries, where a single tip can amount to more than a week's wages. This skews the local economy and puts unfair pressure on those who do not do the type of job where tipping is common, and creates a situation where everyone wants to do this type of job rather than do a real job (i.e. a necessary one). Then there is the problem I hear more and more about customers on all-inclusive holidays being snubbed by bar staff who don't hand them a tip on every drink serving despite the fact that no money should be changing hands. In reality, most countries I have visited never initially had a tipping culture but thanks to our friends from the USA, it has been introduced to them, and it goes through the stage of acceptable-encouraged-compulsory-bullying. Despite the best interests of those who say tipping is a personal thing, it just doesn't work like that, and there are enough greedy and hard faced people around who will make people uncomfortable for those who do not hand over extra cash. I appreciate this is a topic about cruises, and that's where the problem lies, because if I am on land and I don't want to tip, then I can go elsewhere, but on a cruise I don't have a choice. Yes, I can opt of of the 'compulsory' tipping if I want, but then we hear of incidents of the list of opt-outers posted on the staff notice board to give a free for all to give problems to those customers. I'm not saying this is the norm, but I really don't want to take the risk that this may happen on my expensive holiday. If the correct price for the trip was charged in the first place, all these problems would go away. As far as I am concerned I cannot be the guardian for the low paid staff. It is 100% the fault of their employers that they are low paid, but tipping gives employers carte blanche to continue the low pay culture . If they do their job well, they will be appreciated verbally, and that should be sufficient. I've even heard of people being expected to tip ship's officers and the captain in these extra charges. No way are they going to be poor.

Spot on. No way we can change an industry. These workers are virtually always from poor countries and get paid a pittance.75P an hour. If you want to be a Scrooge dont go on Cruises. If you do go, dont treat these unfortunate staff as your skivvies.

This is not true, I have been to over well over 100 ports on cruises and have only taken the ships tours a handful of times. Occasionally I get tours in the port but mainly we just jump on public transport/taxi's and go it alone, sometimes spending only a few pounds each to sample a new country/city. It well worth doing your research before you do this to make things easier however tours are not essential in most ports.

amzzzzyyyy

Comment Haha ok , would u say travel sickness happens if you travel less thats y ? Even in a car

LesD

Unless you want to sit in your cabin all day, you need to budget the same amount again for tours!

More than you would expect even with all the stabilising systems in place...could be psychological....would be for me I think. Probably more sick with the bugs that seem to affect cruise liners.

A good deal but remember Morocco is a Muslim country and as such: The Moroccan authorities have warned of an increased threat linked to the growing number of Moroccans belonging to international terrorist organisations operating in Syria and Iraq. As a result, increased security measures, including additional security personnel may be visible in certain areas. Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places frequented by foreigners. You should take sensible safety precautions and maintain a high level of vigilance at all times. In April 2011, 17 people were killed and 25 injured in a large explosion in Marrakech at the Argana Restaurant in Jema el Fna Square. There is considered to be a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals, from groups or individuals motivated by the conflict in Iraq and Syria. You should be vigilant at this time

Great tips wavecrest, well done on bargaining so hard. Went on this cruise a few days before your post and missed the tips on Muscat, ended up paying more for a taxi. Overall we enjoyed the cruise, stayed a few extra days in Dubai and used the metro to get around everywhere.

wavecrest1

I was on this exact cruise at Christmas. It's a few quid chaper on VivaVoyage. Don't expect the full blown luxury cruise experience. It's cheap and it is what it is. I did a review on CruiseCritic: http://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=270084 In terms of excursions: Muscat: Walk beyond the taxis at the port to the Souk (Market) -takes about 5 minutes. Find a good english speaking taxi driver. 10 Euros per hour. They take you to all the sights in 4-5 hours. Even to the hot springs in the mountains, the big new ShangriLa resort, the diplomatic area, the Opera House, the beaches as well as the usual stuff that you get on the Costa tour like the Royal Palace, Old fort, etc... On the second day in Muscat we went to the beach near the opera house which has great sand, clear waters and is largely diserted but for a few expats. It's has a Starbucks, Subway etc right beside it. There's even a supermarket that sells IrnBru of all things... Bikinis OK. Khasab: Forget about the town - Right beside the dock, you can get a Dhow that'll take you to the Fjords, go dolphin watching and even a bit of snorkling. Takes about 5 hours and they serve fruit, saffron tea, arab coffee, bottled water and soft drinks in the basic price. Haggle down to 10-15 Euros - We paid 50 for 4 of us- all-in. It was surprisingly good. Exactly the same tour sold by Costa is EUR79 each. AbuDhabi: Jump in a taxi and do your own thing. The grand mosque is the must see attraction. Don't believe the Costa hype about dressing appropriate. The mosque will lend you the right clothing. Other things are Ferrari World, the various malls, YazWaterWorld, the MotorCircuit, the Marina etc. Taxis are cheap at £12 to the Mosque from the port. Dubai: Again, Jump in a taxi and do your own thing. If you plan to go to the Burj-Khalifa, book online before you leave. They fleece tourists who just turn up. Sunset and Dawn are the best times. Same book online advice applies to Atlantis WaterWorld. Taxis charge 20AED to pick up at the Port plus the usual metered fare. It's 90AED to the Airport and about the same to Atlantis Palm Waterworld. Dubai Mall is 40AED (10AED is £1.80) One last tip: You sometimes get a better flight deal by flying into AbuDhabi and out of Dubai, especially if you book with AF/KLM. In most cases, the flight will be on Etihad which give a free 1 hour bus trip to Dubai. We only paid £296 over Christmas

Hey I would like to enquire about me and a friend who finish exams on may the 28th and from 29th may to 20th June would like to go on a holiday with a warm beach or a cruise one for upto £400 each. Possibly 7 to 10 nights. If you know any good offers for us two do let me know.. Thank you :)

siadwel

Stacey, you do some awesome work on here, it's only because of you that I am now looking at putting a holiday together based around one of your flight recommendations and for that I thank you, but if you don't add luggage and connections and service charges that are required to fulfill this holiday then you will be pulled up on it, it is only fair to everyone. There are some of us pointing out the fact that it will actually cost more than it says in the title, because we think we are helping the people who shall we say cannot grasp the full facts, and get slated for it. Anyway, have a great weekend and don't take things so personal <3 BTW, what IS sad is that I posted a deal OVER 2 WEEKS AGO to HELP people on here that has gone down since yesterday merely because I chose to comment on this post. THEY are the people who shouldn't be on this board, it doesn't bother me if it's hot or cold but some people may now miss out on saving £100 on a Canon camera because of them. It is very sad how bitter and twisted some people are.

Askrulous

Hi can't actually remember as we did all inclusive last time think we paid for our first drink on the ship which was about 5 euros for a beer and then service was added on too

sbeard1

Teachers and parents are limited to school holidays and we do appreciate any HUKDer pointing out a school holiday deal so thank you OP. If I were to find and post a similar deal then I would probably point out that I'm a parent. That's not me boasting about being a parent it's simply me explaining why the deal was of interest to me and might be of interest to other parents. To those who feel the need to be so obnoxious against the OP because they believe that teachers have an easy ride then either take advantage of it yourself by training to be a teacher or stop your pathetic jealous rantings. Surely if it's the ever so easy, well paid career that you claim and you were good enough to become a teacher then you would have become one? If not, why not?

Can you remember the bar prices? How much for a pint, and soft drinks? I haven't actually paid for the inclusive drinks deal yet.

Really weird - prices seem to be going up again - cheapest in June now is £399.

jomppa

Well I booked this for mine and my wife's birthday. Took our 6 year old son and it was a fantastic deal to say the least ! £470 with sea side balcony (£199 instead of the £99) and we took a £360 flight (LHR via Geneva to Barca using Swiss Air). We did our own tours at each port and saved some money as they were quite expensive (circa £30 per person per trip or a little more or less). Best place was Rome and the Colosseum although the train journey from the port was over an hour and sweaty and full. We took a Malta open top Bus Tour which was great and walked up a mountain to a castle (which was closed!) in Palermo (Sicily). As James said though what a great deal. It did say the original price per person was over £1000 each so probably my best ever purchase from HUKD :-) I would definitely take one again as it was very clean, food excellent, service excellent and overall value for money brilliant ! Thanks OP !!

james_19742000

Well we booked the cruise with Costa after seeing it on here, 2 adults, 2 children, including flights and transfers etc, went with an outside cabin as that was all they had left 4 berth cabin wise, including the flights etc it was just over a grand, OK we had to pay the service charge whilst on board but that is normal with cruising in some way shape or form, and can anyone tell me where they can have a week long family holiday full board with some excellent 6 course evening meals, in cabin breakfast, unlimited buffet food all day long, tea, coffee, water and juice at breakfast etc for the price we paid and visit some great destinations every day, overall this was excellent value for money. The only downside was the international flavour of the guests (yes we know its an italian line so there would be a lot of italians on board) the italians are very rude etc but nothing that really bothered us too much. As this was a last minute unexpected holiday we didnt take much spending money and aside of the hotel service charge we spent £80, and had a great week!!!! If this cruise cam ealong again at this price and it suited with home commitments etc we would have no hesitation in bo0oking again:-) Thanks OP for costing me just over a grand, but I got a great tan now!!! :-)

All true, Rome not a cheap place to fly to either and Costa doesn't have the best reputation. Royal Carribean out of somewhere easy and cheap to get to (eg Malaga) can be a much better bet.

KittyKate

Not a bad price if you're wanting to try out a cruise holiday, I love them :) Word of warning though... Civitavecchia is miles from Rome, a good 1hr 20 on the train or 2hrs by coach, I was surprised when we went that it was so far. So it won't be cheap - and if you are late, the captain won't let you board (this happened to a few of our unfortunate holidaymakers!)
