I always thought that the meals were extra, but after reading an older post, someone said you can get the option of meals included, I bet at a price?? I would contact your travel agent and find our exactly how that works.
I booked an Alaskan Cruisetour through Princess for Aug 2009. The tour I booked includes most meals, transportation, lodging, land excursions, and a tour guide.
The Tour # I booked is NB6.
Of course it is a bit more expensive than other tours offered. Check out their website or ask for a brochure to be sent to you. They have a great number of tours to suit many budgets., some with meals, some without.
Thanks, everyone, for your help. I have a call into our TA and we are waiting to hear back. If the option is there, we would prefer paying ahead of time. It makes everything so much easier and enjoyable.
