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.
Hi there mr hastings i think you are getting confused weith other ship .island star dont have winjammer cafe at poolside its mirage bar at pool and you do pay for tea and coffes they do bring them in pots with cup and saucers at a charge but you can get hot drinks at beachcomber in plastic cup s free of charge and fresh orange juice if still doing it before they take breakfast off then put lunches on you get free water to drink in beachcomber but you can buy bottle water as well .
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.
