Coffee is free from dispensers all over the ship (not great but palatable) you can buy lovely coffee in the coffee bar. Fruit and mango punch are also freely dispensed as is water and ice. Fizzy juice (cokes etc) are available unlimited when you have bought a soda card.

Thanks Mazzoni for your help. This is our first cruise so wasn't sure how it worked. How does this soda card work and what does it cost?

$5.00 plus 15% gratuity per day - has to be bought for the duration of the cruise. So if you drink more than 3 sodas a day it works out to be a deal but if not then it isn't.

If this is your 1st cruise hope you have a lovely time on the Galaxy! We had a great time in Aug and you will find a loads of reviews on this cruise on this website. We found drinks reasonable, similar to a good quality bar/resturant at home. Service second to none. Have a wonderfull time, the itinery is great.

You can get free coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cold/ice water, fruit punch, fruit juices. If you like coke etc. you can buy a unlimited soda card which is good value.

Where were the P&O Fancy Dress police?

By Kerry James

As many of you know, I am getting married at the end of May and after deciding to have my wedding on land rather than at sea, it seemed only right to have my hen party on a cruise.
