Top 5 All-Inclusive Luxury Cruisescruise up a notch by tossing cost to the wind and booking with an ultra-luxury cruise line, where standards like airfare, meals and drinks are not only included, but come in the form of business-class flights, haute French cuisine from award-winning chefs and premium liquors and wines. For the well-heeled traveler, a standard all-inclusive cruise barely meets basic needs, but on a luxury liner -- where the guest-to-staff ratio is nearly 1-to-1 -- all-inclusive might feature exotic on-shore excursions, like elephant treks in a Thai jungle, or high-end fitness classes such as tai chi, and special Champagne and caviar beach parties. Here, we've selected the world's finest all-inclusive cruises.
The packages also include a number of specialty perks, such as fitness classes, golf lessons with PGA pros and shuttles into port towns. Avid learners can also take advantage of onboard enrichment classes and entertainment (like the Crystal Visions lecture series featuring authors and celebrities), computer science classes, art classes and a film series. Guests staying in the ultra-luxe penthouse suites are also privy to a personal butler, as well as packing and unpacking services -- all tips included!
