I think bar prices on board were simillar to pub prices. They have cocktails of the day which are reasonable. In the Dining room they offer wine of the day , May 2007 red/white was £10 a bottle and was very pleasant. If you go to the other Restaurant, NOT the Winjammer Cafe at the poolside, tea and coffe is served in tea/coffee pots with cups and saucers, no charge.

When we were on the Island Star last year you could get tea and coffee free from the dispensing machines in the 24 hour restaurant, The Beachcomber. It's on the same deck as the pools which is quite handy. We found drinks to be reasonably priced. Have a great holiday!!

As previous answer, tea and coffee are available with all meals in the restaurants, only place they charge is in the Pub/Bar area, where they do more speciality coffees. Beachcomber is available 24 hrs a day so no preoblem getting late night/early morning cuppa.

May I add also, you can get select teas for free in Beachcomber also, if you wish to try something different, whilst on holiday, I did notice some people took their own T Bags in with them, just in case I suppose. I found T to be ok, and i'm quite fussy.

Allure of the Seas Charlie Age 6

By Charlene Thackeray

My name is Charlie and I have just been on Allure of the Seas. I have been on 3 other cruises before but this was my favourite.

Miami airport was so boring it took us 2 hours to get out. We stayed in Fort Lauderdale for a night and got on the cruise ship the next day. We checked in but had to wait about 30mins before we co...
