The problem is the choice within the packages is limited & unless you buy the high end packages the saving is not that great IMO. Just to clarify 'anytime' as Hill says anytime in the various dining rooms but not through the day on decks etc.

There are different wine packages available with RCCL, they show them all on there site, wine deals start from 5 bottles upwards and they have different selections, the more you pay the better quality wines you get. I would say it is cheaper if you drink wine everyday to buy a package, you can have your wine anytime in any dining room. Remember on anything drinks wise you buy there will be a 15% surcharge.

You will find the wine packages on the Royal Caribbean web site and I would have thought that with six of you it would be quite a lot cheaper to buy the packages. You might even find that you get a voucher for a better deal once you are onboard. Wine that is not consumed will be held over for you until you need it again, it is not necessary to consume each bottle at one sitting so if one person has a particular wine that they like and the others don't it is not a problem, although that can be pleasant to finish it in one sitting. .....

Wine packages - comes at 3 diff levels (gold Platinum and Diamond) - I think the selection is pretty limited and far better choice from the main wine list. It is called the Wine and Dine package and just to clarify you do NOT only have to have it in the dining room - you can order at lunch, in your cabin and by the pool. Here is the link to the full wine list: http://community.webshots.com/album/562747533yjShXM.

Hi! When we wanted our wine package for the cabin one evening, they were very reluctant but after a bit of mony mony they gave in begrudgingly, so we never dare ask when we at the pool. But yes we did indulge at lunch in the main DR. Regards.

Goodness - never had any probs getting it anywhere. My problem is it usually runs out half way through the cruise and we have to get another one!

Boudicca gets a refit.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

My first experience of Boudicca was in December 2016 and must admit she was looking very tired and a wee bit old fashioned. This had no impact on our little mini cruise but for some passengers doing longer itineraries I must say may be a bit disappointed. Fred Olsen’s reputation is highly held within the cruise market however with so many glam glitzy new comers it is time to up your game. Prices are very good although certainly not cheap and having sailed with them the service, food an...

Oh its such a perfect day ..

By Betsy Davies

Betsy Davies's blog

It seems Royal Caribbean are not just building new ships and refurbishing existing ships but also investing in a $200 million overhaul of their private island Coco Cay. I think this is the best thing that the cruise lines have done in a while and for multi generational family holidays gets a massive thumbs up from me .The 125-acre beach hideaway will be renamed ‘Perfect Day at CocoCay ‘ It will be rolled out in phases, beginning September 2018 and the completion by November 20...
