Cruising Basics

What can I expect to be included in the cruise fare?

Get a lot for your money when you take a cruise vacation

If you are thinking about taking a cruise, you're probably wondering what is included in the cost. The good news is that you get a lot for your money!

Ocean Cruising:

Entertainment and Activities

The great thing about cruising is that in addition to your stateroom accommodations, you can enjoy a five-course meal and watch a Las Vegas-style show every night if you want to without spending an extra dime! Sodas and alcoholic beverages are usually at an additional cost but it's not like going to the movies or the ballpark; Prices are what you'd expect to see at just about any restaurant or bar back home. Your room, entertainment and even various fun-filled activities like rock climbing, swimming, mini golfing and other fitness options are built into the price you pay to cruise.

Enjoy mouth-watering cuisine

Breakfast, lunch, dinner and all day snacking is included! You don't ever have to pull out your wallet to eat. In the evening enjoy Five-course dinners in the main dining room or go to the casual buffet. Ask for seconds or order light, the dining options are catered to what you want, when you want it!

Specialty restaurants, soda, wine or other alcoholic beverages are not covered in the cost of your fare. If you want to pay extra for these amenities it is completely up to you. However, you will not be disappointed if you choose to take advantage of eating at restaurants that are covered in the overall cost.

River Cruising:

River Cruising includes everything that's included in Ocean Cruising except the entertainment is not as elaborate or extensive. In addition shore excursions are included in your cruise fare. Since you're in port every day on a river cruise those shore excursions could really add to the cost if they weren't included. The professionally led tours and shore excursions don't take up the entire day. You'll still have plenty of time to look around, explore and shop on your own. Unlike ocean cruises local regional beers and wine are served at lunch and dinner at no additional charge.
