You can buy a drink/nightcap in any bar and take it back to your cabin. Or you can get bar drinks from Room Service, I believe ............ people recommend asking for them without ice and then adding your own, so they're not "watered down" by the time they get to you!

Royal Caribbean is very strict with its policy of not allowing alcohol to be brought onto the ship. You can purchase wine for your cabin and your fridge is well stocked with drinks which are replaced by your steward every day. Unfortunately there is a charge for these drinks and I don't think there is any truth in the saying "Abstinence makes the heart grow fonder". .... Neil.

We meet again, and once again thanks for dealing with my question, I am all for "a little bit of what you fancy does you good", and as my husband is not so good on his pins at the moment, I guess you get what you pay for! Cheers! Debbie.

I would appreciate if you could post how expensive alcohol is when you return, i recently read its $8 for one beer and am getting a little worried that my bar bill is going to bankrupt me!!

I will certainly do this, I too am concerned about this, however I think that I will keep my whole account in dollars and pay with a mixture of cash and a small amount on the credit card at the end. I have read many different prices on cruise answers, obviously bottled beers are at a premium, and if they are imported beers i.e. not american, then maybe they could be pretty expensive. I will keep you informed.

Hi French of Blackpool! I'm back and sorry to tell you that the drinks are very expensive, and there is no alcohol in the "mini bar", only sweets nuts and soft drinks, we used this fridge for our milk! As for free pouring the alcohol, well they certainly know when to stop! A pint of beer is $7.75 as is a vodka and diet coke. If you want a named brandy like Martell then it is $11.25. The cheapest red wine on the dinner menu was $26 dollars! they have bottles of beer which I think are about $6.25 and soft drinks like coke or sprite are $2.25. If you have children I suggest that you take the soda package they have at $50 for as much as you like. They have Stella on draught but not on display, wierd, they have heinekin and murphy's and some bitters, I don't know how much the bitters are as we don't drink it. Cocktails of the day are also between $7.75 and $9.25. You can get a massive one and a quarter pint can of Fosters for about $9. But tea, coffee, water (and some juices in Windjammers) are all free all the time. This is an expensive ship I think and coupled with their drinks policy of not allowing you to bring any on board you are kind of captive, but it is a good ship on the whole and the staff are great, so enjoy, at least hangovers won't spoil your hols!

He travelled to the other side of the world with his school friends on a G.C.S.E Geography trip of a lifetime! The week flew by for him, although not so much for my wife who became his twitter stalker!He visited San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, Death Valley (as shown in the pic), Las Vegas, The Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Los Angeles….yes ...
