Oh, to be a fly on the wall - you should have been there to see us: both dressed to the nines in our finest glad rags and so overjoyed with excitement! We were just about to depart on the most luxurious cruise in history that money could buy and there is no doubt this really would be the trip of a lifetime too! And best of all - absolutely everything that you can think of is included in the price! So having swanned effortlessly through the priority check in at Southampton and being made to feel like a film-star, we board our magnificent “200,000 ton cruise ship” that will be more like a second home to us for the next 100-nights or so (who’s counting?) …Tasting the Champagne before even being offered any, we can see ourselves with a glass in hand up on the promenade deck and watching the brass band play on the quayside. … Chinking our glasses of bubbly and smiling joyfully at one another, we realize the world is our oyster and we look forward to visiting many places (including Australia and New Zealand), some of which we have never even heard of! With 8,000 passengers there are bound to be lots of interesting people to meet – and the beauty of it all is there are no kids! (Bliss). So what exactly is included for our £40-grand ahead: • A very nicely appointed mini-suite (stocked complimentary bar) with marble bathroom and a large private furnished terrace with own private dipping pool. • Lazy days at sea with all the pampering anyone could ever ask for included – in the Roman spa or on your own terrace. (Including hairdressing). • The very best in shows and other great entertainment with an all top star line-up. • Cocktail parties every evening with complimentary drinks and sumptuous canopies! • At no extra charge: Dine where ever you choose in any of the 20-restaurants on board with all wine/drinks included. • Complimentary Costa coffee shop with all the cake you can eat. • Order a lunch trolley to your promenade deck lounger with a chilled pint of lager! • Fully escorted shore excursion of your choice – with everything included. • All laundry and pressing • All gratuities included and able to nominate crew to receive big unheard of rewards!
