The X1 drinks package covers wine (red, white and rose), beer, bottled water and soft drinks, and is only available during the opening times of the buffet and dining restaurants during lunch and dinner. Cost is Euro 11 per person per day. Some report it cannot be bought via internet but by contacting Coata direct or via your travel agent. Not sure if this is what you are seeking, not aware you can't bring on board 2 bottles of wine to drink in your cabin anytime during the cruise but others will perhaps comment further.

Thanks Blythe Since we like the red wine and occasional beer, having a couple bottles on hand in our cabin is great. I'm presuming that it should be easily accessable to buy at the ports, or nearby. The X1 sounds like a fair deal, but probabally not needed as long as we can stay stocked. Thanks for your comment, and am open to any others as well as experience on this Easterm Med cruise.

With regard to buying drink at the ports, it is strictly forbidden to store it in your cabin. There is a facility whereby it can be stored by the crew and handed to you when you disembark. They use the excuse that is the curse of modern times. HEALTH and SAFETY !!!!!!!

How can the X1 not be worh it? Just one drink at lunch and dinner and the cost is covered.

Brits and Tips.

By Sam Smith

We Brits as a nation have always been somewhat uncomfortable with the whole tipping scenario. Ok, in a restaurant environment maybe, but when was the last time you found yourself handing over extra cash to the nice lady on the checkout in Sainsburys or the very nice man who changed your car tyres in Kiwk Fit? Were they not all just doing their jobs, albeit well?This poses the question as to why we have to either pre-pay what can amount to noticeable sums of money when booking a cruise, or hav...

Symphony of the Seasmy trip...

By Abbi Varela

Abbi Varela's blog

So as I said last time I loved Royal Caribbean’s latest ship Symphony of the Seas.. I wasn’t too sure beforehand if she was going to be just too big, but I can safely say although without doubt a huge ship Symphony doesn’t feel too big once you’re on board. In fact all the different neighbourhood’s and places on board are fantastic, so much choice. I often talk to my customers who are new to cruising and they worry that they will feel enclosed and trapped, with ...

Cruise lines start returning t...

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

Many cruise lines stopped visiting Turkey itineraries after the military coup attempt in July of 2016 due to security concerns and Turkish calls on cruise itineraries are certainly a lot less common than they used to be.It seems that some cruise companies are now starting to re-introduce some Turkish ports of call with the majority now calling at Ephesus (Kusadasi) after security experts have given the all-clear.There still seems to be a massive drop in Turkish cruise destinations compared to...
