Cruise vs All Inclusive


Recommended Posts

I have a upcoming Cruise in February 2023. I have cruised with Royal Caribbean February of this year. My issues are that it fells alittle descrimative that Smokers only have 2 places to Smoke. Somkers like to attend the shows and entertainment just like everyone else. The non Smokers Always fill the smoking section seats. The drinking packages are getting outrageously  to High. There's some many more un for seen charges after the Cruise is booked. Travelers do not like other expences when the prices are so high anyways. The food needs to be fresh all the time. Do not serve dried out food. The salad bars need to be cooler temperatures. Better Quility in looks of the food. Thats the waist. Better food Less waiste. And others things to make Cruising like years ago.   Now All Inclusive is what it says. No extra Cost for drinkers to drink Alcohol. No extra cost for Room services. No discrimination against Somkers. Excellent locations just for Smokers and you feel included with the schedule of events. Shows are Amazing and interesting for all Guest. Again there is no hidden fees.

@Lesa Murray  I hear you.  I was a smoker the last time I cruises in Royal, I think that was 5-6 years ago.  There are fewer and less spaces for smokers.  We cannot do it indoors , in shows.  You can smoke however in casinos. The cigarette price I think was 3 times more expensive.  Cruises are all-inclusive, but for extra service, there will be an additional fee.  Like for example if you request room service from 11pm to 5am they will charge you a room service fee.  Specialty drinks and specialty restaurants do have extra charges and gratuities.

I stopped smoking eventually, I have to since I got pregnant.  After that, I did not feel like I have to smoke again.  No I am a non-smoker, I am more sensitive to secondhand smoke and I feel suffocated.  I think it is just right that Royal limits the areas where people can smoke.

@Lesa Murray You have some valid points! I personally try to avoid the smokers section because I don't smoke, but I think it's important the larger ships attract a more diverse crowd. Maybe cruising with another smaller cruise line could more accurately meet some of these expectations! Have you considered cruising with another cruise line in the past?

@PaulB Usually that is correct! The all inclusive prices are higher but they encompass much more than the average cruise fare. Some of the all inclusive prices even include airfare and hotels! 

Princess Cruises offers more conservative cruise packages and some newer all inclusive options. It's new Princess Premier option even includes top-shelf drinks!
