From London: October 2017 46 Night No- Fly Cruise £1899pp @ Iglu

Found 28th Sep
I guess the price drop is due to the recent Hurricane, so I strongly suspect some of the stops may change, for example St Maarten which was hit particularly bad, but for less than £42pp a night this is exceptionally good value for money with all food included I know for a lot of people they probably couldn't get time off but for people who have the time, it's cheaper than a night in a Travelodge and eating all your meals at Weatherspoons!

It's also a no-fly cruise so ideal for those who don't like to fly.

All food, tea and coffee. Alcohol will be extra cost but you can upgrade to all inclusive if you think you will get your money worth but also get some free drinks on captains formal evenings which may be once or twice per week. Drinks weren't badly priced, I'll try and find the price list.

Around £3.25 for a glass of wine and £3.95 for spirit and mixer. All inclusive is £17pp per day.

Love it. Wish I had the time.

I hate to be a dampener, but I really cannot think of many things worse than spending 46 days in an inside cabin, on a ship in the middle of the ocean, with no fresh air or window. Each to their own, and you would probably only end up sleeping in the cabin, but I'd dread going to bed every night.

I've stayed in an inside room at the Britannia Hotel in Manchester for one night and that was more than enough

An inside cabin on this ship is luxurious compared to any room at the Britannia in Manchester!!

Agreed. And if, woe betide, everyone on board contracts a sickness bug, that's one place you really don't want to be!

Mmm. Bit short notice. But hot

46 nights!!!! no way for me.

HUKD Should do a giveaway for this to a member

the inside cabin is merely to sleep in. They dont chain you to your bed, you get as much fresh air as you want when you leave your cabin. I had an inside cabin for two weeks, with two kids and a husband- best decision ever. After enjoying all the entertainment at night, we were not woken by 6am sunshine streaming through our windows. And it was quiet. Everyone perfectly rested to enjoy all the entertainment, all day, away from your cabin.

It looks like most of the stops are the areas that have just been demolished by hurricane Irma and co.

Relevant sketch -

Tempted but having never done a cruise the 24 full days at sea worries me

St. Maarten is due to reopen to cruise ships on 11th November. Tortola, on the other hand, has no confirmed reopening date and is likely to be out of action for some time.

Looking at the itinerary, there aren't that many ports directly affected by the recent hurricanes.

Interesting ports of call and a great price. Shame I don't have 46 nights going spare.

Done a few cruises, never had an inside cabin but certainly wouldn't be against the idea. I like it dark when I sleep so it would suit.

Like to do it once! Think it would be a great adventure at sea

You aren't being a dampener, you are expressing your personal opinion. Obviously, inside cabins are less desirable than outside otherwise they wouldn't be the cheapest cabins on a ship. Usually though the price offered is such that enough people are prepared to purchase one.

In my opinion I think that a cruise with this many sea days does lend itself to an inside cabin. After all, there isn't much to look at in the middle of the Atlantic especially at this time of year.

Of course, if you would dread going to bed at night then an inside cabin is definitely not for you. But, logically, what would you be missing? An outside cabin at midnight doesn't have much of a view to look forward to either.
