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.

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...

Are cruise lines becoming sexist

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

Last week Aqua Expedition launched a new sensation but only for us ladies I’m afraid. They have come up with the idea of offering cruises just for ladies.They state……..‘With these cruises, women will have the chance to learn about new cultures and traditions whilst meeting new people who share the same excitement for adventure, whilst being able to enjoy a little bit of luxury at the same time.’Now forgive me for being a little lost with this fantastic opportunit...
