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 .

It was announced recently that the biggest ship in the world will have some brand new features which sets her apart from her sisters.I for one am a big fan of Oasis Class after sailing on Allure of the Seas 2 years ago but the 6500 passenger vessel isn’t to everyone’s taste. For me Symphony will not only have the X factor but a huge emphasis on t...

Well what a week it’s been with the collapse of Monarch, it has sent shock waves through the travel industry and here at our team have been working hard to ensure that our cruise customers have been looked after and that it has had a minimal effect on their cruise booking.I have been so sad and upset for all those employees waking up last week to find their job had gone…just like that! I have been in that situation before, a good few years ago now but I remember how h...
