All-inclusive will be introduced on four Braemar cruises in 2013

Nathan Philpott, Olsen’s sales and marketing director, said at the launch of the 2013-14 worldwide programme last night: “No-one likes receiving unpleasant bills at the end of their cruise and so we are trying all-inclusive for the first time on four cruises to see how it goes. We are the first of the mainstream cruise lines to do this.”

Guests are still responsible for gratuities and any additional spending while on board the ship, such as treatments and purchases from the shops.

Philpott added: “We know many of our guests are on a tight budget in these difficult times, and we are delighted that we csan offer this very generous inclusive prices for four of our exciting new fly-cruise itineraries.

“With this added drinks package, these cruises offer exceptional value for money and it will be easier for them to budget and allow more leeway for spending on other holiday extras, such as shore excursions.”

The Braemar cruises offering this special extra are:

  • M1305FC - seven night Canary Islands Dispvery departing February 20-13
  • M1306FC - 11-night African Beeches and Tropical Islands cruise departing 24 February
