One of the reasons that cruises have grown so much in popularity is partially due to their inclusive nature and the value that represents. Meals, entertainment, and other goodies are often seen as great reasons for taking a cruise vacation—especially in the light of how meal, hotel and theatre prices have escalated over the past decade or so.
But, apart from cruise ships, many land-based resorts are also going the route of the all-inclusive. Many great new resorts in places like Mexico and the Caribbean have captured a lot of vacation business with the emphasis on one price pays for everything. Some places in Mexico even offer free land excursions to local attractions and privileges at sister resorts in the area.
One cruise line that has embraced the all-inclusive proposition is Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Because they operate in the luxury end of the business they have recently added free shore excursions and onboard beverages to their complimentary list. There’s little doubt that the attraction of inclusivity has a strong appeal for many value seeking vacationers, and why not?
