The majority of reviews I've read recommended Black Barrel and XO over the Eclipse.
If only I could give this comment more likes! (highfive)
This will taste watered down compared to the same if bought in Barbados,40% vs 43%. Try the XO for a better taste or don’t put ice in this one.
Na, just way to busy overcompensating on Ann Summers deals.
Huh, all sensible comments thus far! HUKD is growing up!
Yum yum yum more rum for my tum 😁
Awesome rum 👌🏼
Decent price usually about 27-28! Love this brand especially the XO
Good price, but this will come down again - it does every year.. At that time of year the ship will be mainly elderly. Not a great ship though - Nicknamed Chavtura. If you don’t like flying it’s ideal, otherwise fly to Miami / Fort Lauderdale and cruise from there. No bad weather and cheaper
That's amazing. We've booked for Tenerife next week and Lanzarote in November. But we'll certainly be keeping a close eye on pricing for next year as it's our 30th anniversary.
Haha, I don't mind at all, it was Direct with Royal Caribbean. The free drinks package offer ended on 2nd July but keep your eye out, they bring it back regularly. Celebrity have a free drinks and wifi offer on at the moment, they're great cruises as well.It shows £1693 total but there was also $300 (£230) on board spends included which we can use to buy cigarettes and Grey Goose :D which we would buy anyway, so that makes it approx £1463 for the 2 of us.
Maybe. But not with P&O
Some cruises gratuities are compulsory I've been told by friends, family who've been on cruises
Yes but when it does rain... My word it's ferocious ! Doesn't last long and within 20 mins it's bone dry again. Quite surreal.
Been on sale for a couple of weeks now so most of 2018 sold out now. So those who say prices haven't gone down probably aren't getting the 2 for 1 offer.
There’s always a lot of talk about hurricanes, I’ve done the ca I’ve done the Caribbean in March, April, May & September & been lucky enough to not experience a hurricane. I have also learnt to totally ignore weather apps, my iPhone has said either windy or rain every day in Barbados yet it has been scorching hot for over a week, a little wind & cloud, but that’s good when it’s as hot as it is.
Breakfast buffet is incredible. So much to choose from. They will produce a wine menu at most of the restaurants, but they also have a selection of house wines which are really nice which are inclusive. If cocktails are your thing, they do excellent cocktails. If you book into the red lane spa, be prepared for upselling of expensive (and way overpriced) products. They obviously work off of commission based pay, but that aside it's a fantastic place. Get out and about and if there is a street parade, get involved !! Lovely people. Enjoy
This is true, but with sandals you get a "hurricane guarantee" so if there is a hurricane whilst you're there, you get a freebie holiday to compensate (unless they've changed their terms - I haven't looked into them for a while)
Average price IMHO.
Same at Tesco, which I know is much less convenient than waiting for delivery, or being Prime only like this.
I more into straight rum.
And the flights were 460 each so it was 700pp for 10 nights
That's not showing the price though bud. And how much was the flights?
There’s loads on there there’s betters ones but they are all booked up. this is what I’ve booked for April.
There is a lovely beach bar almost next to Lonestar called Ju Ju's . Food is lovely and reasonable and you can swim out to the turtles from the same beach.
You can eat out as cheaply or as expensive as you want - there are cheaper places to eat, you just have to look for them and perhaps go a bit off the beaten track ... If you choose to eat at Lonestar every day then yes, you would need a small mortgage :-D
Bathsheba is one I haven't come across so I'll look that up- thank you :)
Bargain price, wowsers. Having been a few times, this is worth booking, and NOT turning up with the 2 kids, and NOT staying in that hotel either. Happy to pay this price, and just use it as the flight cost. Beltin price.
Oistins is amazing and you can eat there ever day not just friday! We went most nights. Theres also a wicked food van a walm up from Paynes Bay (best beach ever!!) .. if you walk past ‘Rihannas House’ you will come to the food van. So reasonable and so good! If you can get to St Lawrence Gap any evening (not too much in a taxi) then there is a bit more entertainment and food places than Holetown. If you get chance hire a car and go to Animal Flower Cave and Bathsheba (excited)
But I have done 2 weeks all inc in Jamaica for 1400 a few times and 900 quid for 2 weeks in Barbados all inc
If I wasn't moving house I'd of booked this (fierce)
This was directly from the MSC website. It looks like ocean view is now fully booked but inside rooms are still available Link: https://m.msccruises.co.uk/en-gb/mscb2c/Booking/Funnel/FA20180327BGIBGI?PriceCode=FAGB8EKFMS#/type-experience/0
Has anyone seen that film Titanic? It would really put me off going on a boat like this. EDIT: Mind you.. ice.. in the Caribbean? Not bloody likely.
Thanks for the screen shot, however I am after the to the MSC website which lets you book direct for £299 as far as I can see MSC do not have it for this price.
Try Booking.com Stayed at Coral Sands Beach Hotel..... fantastic if self catering. Fab beach almost felt like our own private beach. At that price, go for it 8) :)
You got that impression from the photo :/ ...........................I've got a free eye test voucher you can have. (y)
aaah, we're doomed! "Ding Dang Diddly Doomed" ;)
I started mine last monday! **sobs**
Not true! Only £24 here https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/save-40-on-tesco-munich-8-wheel-hard-shell-suitcases-free-cc-eg-cabin-now-24-medium-now-30-large-now-36-2902297 thanks to wishihadadonkey. :D :D :D
I'm asking hukd lot as the Reviews online are good-great and above. Hukd group will give a better review. Anyway For £1100 1 week all inclusive for Norwegian fjords from Southampton Im not waiting for answers as it was a flash sale. Just passing by saw this deal and nothing to lose by asking
Already booked this cruise with another travel agent at a cheaper price and got a great deal on a suite. Love MSC, but have cruises 30+ with several different lines and have never had a bad cruise but some are better than others!
Might’ve been a good idea to have asked this before you booked :/
Well all I can tell you is I have sailed with them twice...never again. Customer service is none existent. 2nd rate cruise company, that's why they are cheaper. I go on many cruises, just saying my experience has not been good at all.
I've also rented a car a couple of times in Barbados. I agree it's a good way to tour the island, but my point was that you really don't need to hire for a whole two weeks. You can see the main sights on the island over two or three days. The rest of the time, we found walking and buses better in order to enjoy plenty of Banks beers and rums. Each to their own, of course.
Thank you!!!! the amount of people who travel abroad, do not leave the resort thinking all inclusive resorts is the only way to a holiday is baffling to me!?
I rented a vehicle and unless your the time of person to leave hotel, walk to the beach and back to the hotel the car was invaluable and we managed to tour the island for relatively cheap petrol. Beautiful island.
Yes Christmas in Barbados can get very expensive very quickly. Most restaurants are overpriced at the best of times, not bad but overpriced.
Price gone upto. 575
Flown last two years to Barbados on Thomas cook from Manchester First year it it was brilliant a newly refurbed plane and food soft drinks and ice cream handed out regularly, entertainment very good lots of choice, last year was on an older plane and it appeared service had been cut back note from Manchester they only do one direct flight to Barbados weekly the other 3or 4 flights go to st lucia, Antigua or Tobago unload passengers (and pickup passengers) and then another hour to Barbados, all flights home are direct from Barbados . with this in mind you can easily do two holidays in one getting a liat airlines flight onto Barbados (add 55-120 US dollars per person) I'd recommend Antigua (over St Lucia) price wise i de I was looking a few weeks ago for January18 prices where £380-420 so with £50 off I'm tempted just need a babysitter ps. Thomson appeared to pull the Manchester flights last year. Pps only TCook offer low prices on singles, I noticed virgin charge pretty much a return price for one way single ticket, hence choosing TC
My mum used TC to fly longhaul from Gatwick to Cape Town (12 hours flight). It was quite no-frills, so the films were old, you have to pay for headphones and pay for drinks but those were pretty much the only downsides. Oh, and the seats didn't have those head rest wing thingys so if you're in the middle seat you've got nowhere to put your head, so avoid a middle seat if possible. The plane was fairly new, the legroom was good, the food was fine, the seats comfortable enough, staff friendly and generally good. Not as luxurious as BA or Virgin but the price difference was huge (£400 with TC and £900 with BA!). Having said that, BA & Virgin aren't what they used to be and are becoming increasingly no-frills so the difference is becoming slimmer.
Go with Thomson nicer aircraft and staff. Their planes always breaking down.
Depends where you're flying from. A few years ago, Thomas Cook had a habit of flying the Newcastle flight back to Manchester and bussing everyone back to Newcastle - as long as you were back in the Toon within 4 hours of expected Newcastle arrival they could get away with it. For that reason I would never fly with them. Thomson (especially Dreamliner) are much better in my opinion.
ThugBasher - Used them for Florida last year and California this year - absolutely fine. You pay for alcohol, but that's fair enough given the price. Good staff. Good planes, plenty of leg room (I'm 6'2) and no hassle at all.
On the way out there is a stop off, but on the way back there is no stop off.
Aye, but that's from London oO my deal is from Manchester....
BA don't fly from Manchester, £400 return is pretty standard for these flights in December and January, I've been the last two years, Note not all barbados flights are direct they fly through either Antigua / St Lucia or Trinidad stop for an hour to drop of passengers and then onto barbados 45-60 mins, With cheap liat fares you can do two holidays in one for £350-420 return
Ok check out 2 May 2018 . Ba.com Butterfly Beach hotel 2 people from London £1349 for 7 nights and Netflights same dates £1395. So I'm saying is better to compare before booking. No harm.
Unless you are going to show your workings, then I do not see the point in this post at all oO
Er, No. Due to its location in the Caribbean Sea, Barbados is fortunate to not experience hurricanes in the last who knows how many decades,which have devastated other Caribbean islands and parts of the US. Instead they experience tropical storms (quite scary heavy winds, rough seas) which clips the island as it travels further up the Caribbean then turns into a hurricane (for their Caribbean neighbours & US). I would love to go at this price however prepping the minion for upcoming GCSEs. Should be a criminal offence the prices the travel industry is allowed to charge during school holidays!! oO 8)
Just checked 6 and 7 September is priced at £643.
If was early September I'd bite but I'm pretty sure they've had massive hurricanes most October's for the last few years years haven't they?
I went to Cancun in Late Sept / Early Oct once and the weather was still absolutely roasting, sure the odd tropical downpour for half hour and then clear skies again. Won't be the same everywhere but could well be a cheeky bargain
This is not a good time of year to experience a great resort. Don't do it.
Another case of what you see isn't what you get.
Link not working for me?
Arghh terrible egg related puns, that might mean a cold vote :D
Yep, no Baggage costs (add £70 I guess), so not really a great saving
Quite cheesed off with Thomson - the reason the Mexico flights are so cheap is that no hold luggage is included and you have to pay £50 departure "tax" when departing Mexico in order to leave. Every other airline includes this tax with the price of your ticket, but not Thomson - as I found out last week when returning from Cancun.
That was accommodation only, will struggle for a 1 week hol over the easter period, as not much flight availability
What including flights and accommodation?
If this was for 1 week it would be brill for me, but no flights for 1 week only and hotels prices are expensive
cheers weather is really good still in April and May high 20's all year round, only thing that changes is the rainfall in wet season June-October.
What's weather like April, anyone been who could give an idea
Just posted a Canada August school holiday deal.
Yes Pls... Would be gratefully appreciated
Wow, good price! Have fun 8)
No problems at all. I had a chat with the Lifeguards at each of the beaches and they were fine with it. As far as a general country rule thing, I don't think they have restrictions on the smaller ones like the Phantoms
Cracking price for flights but a week or so all inclusive will cost a small fortune
I think i mis-quoted somewhere sorry. I meant to quote the post about adding drinks costs to the bill.
I've been on a Cruise and Maritime cruise from Liverpool to Norway on a bargain sub £299 deal. The company itself is really geared up for the older passenger. On the plus this meant we were first off the ship as we didn't need assistance and we weren't stuck in the wheelchair/walking stick queue for meals so it did have it's advantages. The entertainment was knitting, card making and the Hairspray movie shown on DVD. Tom Jones seemed to filter through the the cabins and public areas on a loop. It was a funny experience and a very cheap way of exploring Norway compared with flight/hotel prices but you may need to lower your expectations. It's good value to see somewhere on a non-fly cruise and tipping is added to your bill but you can remove it 48 hrs before your cruise finishes if you wish and tip staff individually. We also took alcohol on board at Liverpool but it was a few days after the new cruise terminal area opened so don't think they were bothered on checking.
Unfortunately you wouldn't be allowed to take any Alcohol on board, and the soft drinks are usually included anyway.. :(
Holiday Pirates isn't the cruise company name, it is merely a website showing where bargains can be had, including cruises, package holidays etc. They are usually last minute or far off bookings but they do show some cracking deals from time to time..
That's correct... meaning that the passengers pay MORE as there isn't 800 staff ! Whenever I cruise I always tip the staff that serve me personally, this unfortunately is a little biased, as the mechanics, kitchen staff, cleaners etc have all done their bit too but this is where the greedy cruise line owners have their duty to attach the relevant wage.
Cruise nation have been amazing. Upfront with whats included and a stupid price..however i would not do an MSC cruise again..loud and rough Pontins on the sea at best...smoking by pools, food was ok. Entertainment was tedious as so many languages and not our taste at all. We had a fab time tho as found a place to enjoy our evenings on deck with a bottle of wine watching the surf..and lovely days in wonderful ports. The ship was clean and staff were polite and kind. If you are on a budget do it. If its a special special occasion Cunard :) to die for lol
Thank you for your open and honest experience... Does not sound like my bag at all... one to miss, me thinks!
Thank u WillieGophar!
I was on the Fantasia back in August , the first time I had ever been with MSC and I wouldn't go back. I completed the feedback form and told them even if i won 1 of the free cruises I wouldn't take it. I was so disappointed in them. The food was always cold and bland. They didn't ensure the dress standards were followed in the buffet, which meant the passengers didn't use the hand sanitiser and they would come in with bare feet in swim suits oh and 1 girl decided to dry her hair at the table while we were eating. The passengers were rude and would have knocked you down to get to the front of the queue. The staff were very pleasant but were surprised if you said "please" or "thank you" to them as they weren't used to it from the passengers. I would not recommend MSC to anybody.
