Drinks prices broadly in line with UK pub prices - to make good use of a full-price package (£170pppw) you'd need to go some. Not worth it for most people, tho sometimes they offer at 1/2 price as an incentive to book a cruise. ............Chris.

Just to add to Chris' answer, you can get it included in the price if you book early. Or at a discounted rate of about £50 when the "free" A.I. is gone before they put it up to full price. Last time aboard we would have only spent about £100 on drinks between 2 of us if we'd paid for them. Berwyn.

Hi, For the 2nd half of the question, the outside standard cabins are all the same inside. We had a balcony on deck 9 last time and inside it was identical to the ones we saw on lower decks. So really not unless you want to be higher up nearer the food and entertainment. Some cabins on Deck 8 are on the small promenade deck and though you will have a window you will have people walking outside it. And the lifeboats hang off deck 9 obstructing views in some cabins. Most people really only want the outsides so they can see daylight and you're not in it that much apart from sleeping and washing Berwyn.

Just an idea. If you do get an offer with the A.I. included don't ask for a bottle of wine or you will pay for it. (Unless you want a particular wine). Get the house wine by the glass, red, white and rose. Berwyn.

Weve just returned from colourful coasts canary cruise, and overall had a great holiday; we had previously upgraded to an outside cabin no. 6024 on deck 6 diamond deck; the cabins are small and dated, but clean. However we could only see through a small panel of glass in the centre of our window due to salt from the sea. When we enquired about the poor visibility, we were told it was due to the sea, time of year and the part of the world that we were sailing in.... What rubbish! must have been a mirage when we looked at other cruise ships in ports, with immaculate clear windows. Our advice, book an inside cabin. Also we took a look inside the deluxe and suite cabins. Don't bother!they are definately not worth it. On a positive note, the food, entertainment and excursions were good .

What No Kisses On My Pillow?!!

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

10 years ago a tradition of the nightly turn down service on ships was a Chocolate Kiss on your pillow but this now seems to be a thing of the past according to a recently returned cruise passengerI hear all the time from passengers that ‘standards are not what they used to be’ with less and less being included and more and more being an added payable extra – Are cruise lines cutting corners just too much?Even the Berlitz Guide author commented that standards are slipping in...
