Quite reasonable, certainly comparable with pub prices in England even including the 15% service charge. Wine in the restaurant is as fairly priced as a restaurant at home, I have always thought corkage was a rip off but it happens wherever you go, but you can if you wish have a couple of glasses from your bottle and have the remainder put by for your next evening meal (Idon't because I like wine and lots of it!) Hope this helps.

There is no service charge applied to drinks on P&O ships. You would only be charged corkage if you wanted to take your own bottle of wine into the restaurant or a bar. We have always thought the wine was reasonably priced on P&O. We often have a carafe of wine for dinner (half a litre) if we have had drinks before dinner. You can take alcohol on board with you if you wish, there are no restrictions as to that.

I stand corrected then as far as service charges in the bar are concerned, I was under the impression that a service charge was included in the price of drinks in the bar but not shown on your chit. However, there is corkage on the wine in the restaurant wether you take your own or buy it from P&O, you only have to look at the wine prices ,£20 + for a bottle of wine you could buy in most wine stores at home for a lot less. Also it is pertinent to note that you are not obliged to tip your wine waiter in the restaurant (although we always do) as his/her wage is "taken care of" I have never said that the prices are not reasonable, merely on a par with what you would pay in a restaurant at home.

Think your right about the charge in the bar Mr/Mrs T.... I thought prices were quite reasonable in the bar except for wine in Restaurant that is... Beer same as my local!

The drinks are no more expensive than a Hotel and the wine when dinning was reasonable too. Thats what we found on the P&O Oceana last November 08. Beryl Clayton. Birmingham.

My year in plans Part One

Anyone who knows me will know I like a good plan. I am super organised, well I like to think so. Often that leaves me so busy I can’t fit in any more plans and that is what has happened this year! So here are my plans for 2017… So far anyway!My year starts next month when I am off to New York with a few friends. We are going for St Patricks weekend so it is all very exciting and I can’t wait. I have my ESTA sorted, passport all ready and my dollars in my purse. I just...

What Is Your Number One Priori...

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So since finding out recently that I am going to become a dad for the first time (which I am probably foolishly ecstatic about), my priorities in life have taken something of a change of late!When I found out a couple of months ago, I started to look at my life. Where I was, what I have achieved, and what kind of future I wanted for my wife and imminent child.This little bit of soul searching has initially made me fixate at cash flow, which I’m sure is not unusual! So I have thrown myse...

Are cruise lines becoming sexist

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

Last week Aqua Expedition launched a new sensation but only for us ladies I’m afraid. They have come up with the idea of offering cruises just for ladies.They state……..‘With these cruises, women will have the chance to learn about new cultures and traditions whilst meeting new people who share the same excitement for adventure, whilst being able to enjoy a little bit of luxury at the same time.’Now forgive me for being a little lost with this fantastic opportunit...
