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.

Seasons to Sail.

By Nicola Milligan

Before we cruise it is vital that we match the right destination with the right season or time of year. This will depend on your individual needs and expectations. When I worked on the high Street and couples came in for a Honeymoon in July for example but wanted somewhere Far Away and Exotic because that is what you do for a Honeymoon my advice was to closer to home at that time of the year as we have amazing weather in the Mediterranean so pay for overpriced destinations to just get rained ...

Bliss in Alaska and Joy for China

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

Being a great fan of NCL cruise lines I have welcomed the news that the 2 newest ships to join the fleet in 2017 and 2018 will be based in China and Alaska respectively. Norwegian Joy which will enter service in Summer 2017 will be based in Shanghai and Tianjin. I have recently returned from a cruise on Norwegian Epic around the Mediterranean and there were a lot of Chinese staff on board who were training and getting ready for the new ship.Norwegian Joy is being styled exclusively for the Ch...
