Costas drink package was great. Did 7 night cruise in Octover 2013 and were able to book the drinks package on the dock before boarding the ship at 19.50 euro per day, fantastic value. Could dring at any bar at any time .

Hi, We love the X1 what a bargin! Needs to be booked at least 14days in advance through your travel agent or Costa if booked direct. (Some agents dont seem to have heard of it but make sure they phone Costa and book it for you. Unlimited (and I mean unlimited) beer wine and soft drinks with all your meals. Only for sale for adults however the staff still bring drinks for the kids. As this is such a bargin approx 11 euros a day please buy one for each adult and dont do what some people do and just buy one.

Went on a caribbean cruise with Costa Fortuna last Jan and was never told about this!!!I have already booked a cruise with Costa again for Oct 09 (Canada and New England) so this seems like a great idea. Can you tell me if the drink package is for meal times only or can you use it in the bars/theatre through out the day/evening? Also is it too early to book it now?

The X 1 package is available during meal times only. In Europe it costs 11 Euro per person. I think that you start thinking to book your package now. We were informed by our Travel Agent that it is not allowed to take only one X 1 package in a twin cabin, perhaps the reason for this is that the package was abused of by previous passengers.

I was recently lucky enough to spend 3 nights on board the beautiful Royal Princess sailing from Southampton to Dublin, and being a over of the recent hit cruise programme ‘The Cruise ‘ I had an idea on what to expect but actually sailing onboard her was a million times better!Once you board the main centre point of the ship is the piazza, which constantly has a buzz surrounding it, from line dancing, speed painting, fruit carving plus more during the day you also have various bar...

No fly cruises have now become so popular. Each year, as the number of people taking cruise holidays increases, so too does the number who want to cruise, but dont want to fly. There are many reasons why people prefer no fly cruises. Here are just 10 of the more popular reasons.(1) We live on an island! No matter where you live, youre probably closer to the sea than you realised. So, its probably just as easy to get to any of the major cruise ports as it would be to get to an airport. Cruise...

Amazed by Symphony Part 1

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...
