showing £699 for me, still hot though X)
this is hot
I'm guessing that the outward flight to Miami is not included...?
Without checking, I'm sure this price will be for an inside cabin only.
Not dissing the deal (not voted either way), but simply trying to add some details that may not have been considered.

Unfortunately the single supplement for people on their own is far too high.

I'd agree as I'd be all over this, however flights would be a little costly.

HOT from me.

OK - so I have to eat humble pie
The linked-to page states "flights included" (but can't find any details on this) and the price is for an "oceanview" cabin.
A balcony cabin is only (?) £150 pounds more at £799, so this is actually a very good deal indeed

How much is food? All inclusive options or pay per day etc?
With these kinds of cruise you usually hemerage money, tips can be costly as they add up, drinks cost a fair bit too, these cruises are also very formal, unlike Thomson where most things are included (and can get drinks package) and except captains dinner is smart casual in terms of dining in the main restaurant or casual in other areas.

A good deal though if you like this type of cruise experience.

You're guessing - and you're largely incorrect.
Not guessing, have been on a Thomson cruise and am going on another in June. My friends have been on both royal Caribbean, Thomson and some other cruise companies and provided that feedback as I was initially considering a royal Caribbean cruise before I booked my Thomson cruise. I like to enjoy myself, eat well, drink well so for me it would be far more costly on RC, if you have a sparrows appetite and don't drink much perhaps you can stay within reasonable budget but as I was talking about all inclusive my reference was pointing towards potential clientele with similar requirements as me, that have a good appetite and like a good drink!
This works out at £40.56 per night for each person! We have cruised RC quite a few times and been on Navigator last year. It's a lovely ship and for all the food you can eat and tea/coffee/squash it is a great deal!

My advice would be to pay Gratuities up front and then in theory you don't need to spend anything else on board - unless you want to and RC isn't very formal, its very relaxed and family friendly.

My partner's just booked us on a Thomson's cruise for next year and echoed exactly what you've said about informality and costs etc.
HEAT from me! Great deal for those interested in this..... Well found!

Like I said - you're guessing - and have been incorrectly informed by the sound of it. You can eat all day on RC (if you're so inclined); in fact food is a major draw for any cruise line. Perhaps the difference is Thompson is McDonalds level whereas RC is decent restaurant quality? I considered a Thompson cruise once but then read the reviews and realised why they're so cheap. Maybe you were the drunken yob that fellow passengers were complaining about?

All food (and it's usually very good on cruises) is included in the price, as is tea, coffee and squash drinks.
For alcoholic and other drinks, you can either pay as you go (actually, it will be added to your cabin account which you settle at the end of the cruise) or pay a fixed amount per day (usually quite expensive - $50 to $100 per person depending on cruise line/ship) to upgrade to all-inclusive.
We're going on a Med cruise with Princess cruises in May, and we've decided to see how much we spend on drinks on the first full day and then decide if it's worth paying for the all-inclusive option for the rest of the week.
It is £649.00 per person (minimum of 2).

The food in the formal dining area on Thomson is very good, easily on par with RC. The drinks on Thomson are all inc and all tips are inc so much what you pay for the holiday is all it's going to cost you.
RC isn't the same and that's my point, you may get a little credit for drink but that's soon gone and if you enjoy a day in the sun when at sea enjoying cocktails brought to your deck chair by the bar staff it'll cost nothing on Thomson but it will on RC. Enjoy and keep missing out.
Depending on your taste, have enjoyed P & O, great time, welcoming., Princes, very smart - a touch of class,. RC free for all, a touch of chav. They all represent great value , super entertainment, you make your own choice.
