We cruised with Royal Caribbeans Navigator in October to the med and found the drinks very expensive but the pound is weak against the dollar so that makes a big difference. Yes it is a good idea to take the wine package as it does work out better.

Hi You can take water and soft drinks on board, we did this so we could take drinks ashore. We bought a 5 bottle wine package for our 7 night cruise which was just perfect we made saving as we peferred the most expensive bottles offered in the package . We only needed to buy one extra bottle. I bought a soda package for myself and my husband drank water or the free lemonade during the day we usually had a lager/cocktail about 4pm then a pre dinner drink followed by the wine at dinner. The drinks were very reasonably priced than they are now due to the exchange rate. Some kind person has put all the drinks menu/list on the internet. This might help you budget for drinks. .

The wine package 'table' will be set up in the entrance to the Windjammer, your first food stop on boarding. You can purchase there or grab a leaflet to peruse & tell the wine waiter at your table at evening meal time. If you don't finish a bottle you can have it stored till the next time or take it with you around the ship or to your cabin......wilba .

Some have either split up from, or have lost their partner and have no choice but to travel on their own. Some go with friends, but want to have the privacy of their own cabin to sleep in.Cruise holidays are a perfect option for people who travel alone. You can have plenty of ‘me-time’, but you ...

My Visit to see the MS Emily Bronte

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I was luck enough to be invited to see the new MS Emily Bronte. This was only a day trip but worth it all the same. An early start to the day travelling to Birmingham to be met by Riviera representatives and then a short flight to Dusseldorf followed by an hours transfer to where the ship was. I can see why River Cruises are very popular. Compared to an ocean Liner that are huge in size, River cruises give you a more intimate feel and are able to get into the heart of Cities. Some with excurs...
