Island Cruises have announced that the Island Escape will offer all-inclusive cruises from 2013. The cruise line previously offered all-inclusive upgrades to its passengers, but will become all-inclusive as standard.
The all-inclusive upgrade essentially covers the drinks onboard, as gratuities were already included in the price, though the ship's a la carte restaurant will still include a cover charge,the 24 hour buffet dining remains included in the price.
Fraser Ellacott, Managing Director of Island Cruises said: "All-inclusive is a very popular option with our customers already, so it makes perfect sense to offer it as standard."
2012 cruises will continue to offer the all-in upgrade for passengers wishing to not worry about their bar bill, but the all-inclusive cruises 2013 are sure to appeal to those looking to keep tabs of their holiday spending in the difficult economic climate.
