No, this tour is an official trip to help celebrate The Queen's Diamond Jubilee. You can vacation at these places but that's not what the Cambridges are doing, they are working on the Queen's behalf and flying the flag for the UK/Commonwealth.

They get to stay a nice place but the trip is far from a holiday in their case.

These tours seem to me to be the furthest thing away from a holiday. Yes, sometimes they go to beautiful places and stay in nice hotels, but the whole essence of a holiday is being able to lounge around, do whatever you please and not having to answer to anyone else like when at work. That's not what this trip entails.

You think politicians and other officials stay in cheap run down hotels when they visited foreign countries?

Obviously you and I go on different holidays. While I do stay in rather nice hotels I do not arrive with a schedule telling where I am supposed to be every hour of the day, who I will be meeting, what activities I will be taking part in or even having planned out what I will have to wear each day. My vacations allow me to get up when I want, do what I want, eat and drink what I want, ignore who I want, talk to who I want, and go to bed when I want. Otherwise it would just be another work day and not terribly relaxing no matter how nice the surroundings.
