Thinking of dipping your toe into cruising? You’ve probably heard a few things about cruise holidays floating around, such as "there’s too many kids" or "you can’t drink the tap water." For the real deal on cruises, our Cruise Experts have busted these common cruise myths to reveal why your next holiday should be cruisey.
1. Cruises are boozy
Nothing wrong with a tropical cocktail as you set sail, but you’ve probably heard that cruises are full of partygoers who are out to make good use of their drinks package. Some cruise lines still offer a drinks package, however they’re now better governed, which means guests can still enjoy a drinks package as a value-for-money add-on without going overboard. As an example, P&O Cruises has no daily limit on non-alcoholic beverages but stipulates that adults can have up to 15 alcoholic beverages per 24-hour period when The Premium Beverage Package and The Lot! Beverage Package is purchased.
