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 .

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...

Happy Monday to everyone! You’ve all heard the saying from Carslberg, “If Carslberg Did………………” Well what if Carlsberg did cruises? Or if you could invent or design your ultimate cruise what would it be like?If I was given control or designing a cruise, my first priority would have to be a rugby pitch! Most cruises if not all have some form of sports court, such as Basketball, football, but what if they had a rugby pitch! Now rugby is...

Well I have just returned from my 5th visit to Eurodisney with my family . Yet again it didn’t disappoint.There was 11 of us in total and we stayed in the Dream Castle just outside the gates and it was great !! We were up at 6.30 every morning and in the parks by 9 am impressingly first in the queue to get in on some days. Even though it was February it was still busy so we needed to fast pass some of the ride which always comes in handy. We were very lucky as we had a few days of glori...
