According to consumer expert Alice Beer, P&O Cruises has revealed how customers on cruise holidays can save up to over £1,600 on daily expenses during their holiday. The usual holiday additions such as meals, travel and entertainment, outdoor activities and movie tickets can run to over £1,000 for two adults. Amounts up to £1,600 for an entire family.
Contrary to this, a typical P&O Cruises vacation includes accommodation, full meals, afternoon tea, multi-destination visits, entertainment, and a kids’ club included in the price.
Alice Beer, editor-in-chief of This Morning, said:
“When planning next year’s vacation, reckoning is more important than ever. Oftentimes, a trip that seems cheap can end up costing much more than expected when you factor in food, activities, and entertainment. A cruise, where almost everything is included, offers incredible value for money and also gives you the unique opportunity to visit several destinations in one stay.
The company says a seven-night flight/cruise to the Canary Islands costs £499 per person and the price includes return flights to Tenerife as well as stops in Madeira, Gran Canaria and Arrecife from Lanzarote.
P&O Cruises President Paul Ludlow said:
“With many of us giving up luxury and wanting more vacations for our money, there has never been a better time to try a cruise vacation. So much is included in a P&O Cruises stay, which means guests can still enjoy all the extras that make the stay memorable without worrying about rising costs. .
Ludlow added: “Many of our holidays start in Southampton to avoid expensive airport parking and costs that can save hundreds of pounds over the cost of a typical family holiday.
