We were on Island Star this July and went to the Oasis restaurant on two occasions. It cost £12.50 per person but on most evenings they do a promotion at £29.90 for 2 including a bottle of wine which we found to be very worthwhile. Both the food and service were excellent and well worth the supplement. We also heard very good reports on the Steakhouse restaurant ((£14.95 per person or £34.90 for 2 inc wine) but we didn't try it simply because we preferred the starters in the Oasis restaurant and there was less emphasis on chips with the steaks. From what I recall the wines in the promotion were normally priced at £12.50 per bottle and were very good. The whole evening was very relaxed and you were not rushed in any way. Enjoy your cruise.

I have not been on Island Cruises so cannot comment about the quality or value. Nowadays most cruise lines have "Speciality Restaurants" and they are there nor for the passenger but to boost the profit so, with the exception of a few lines like Azamara, Swan Hellenic and the like there is a charge made which, in this case, seems high so worth asking about value for money. The wine need not necessarily be that plonkish as it is probably an incentive to get more people to use the restaurants when they are underbooked. I am sorry that nobody has answered your main point, why not try and ask it again? Regards... Neil.

I thought a cruise would be perfect as it would give me a good insight to each place visited with the chance to see what they have to offer with a possible return visit in the future.I pre-b...

Celebrity Edge Looks Incredible!

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So yesterday afternoon I was lucky to attend an online preview of some of the accommodation and facilities aboard Celebrity Cruises most ambitious ship ever built; Celebrity Edge….I’ll be honest when I first heard the name of the ship, I thought it was an awful choice. However it’s since grown on me, and after watching the presentation, I now see the logic in the name Edge.You see this ship is first and foremost all about design and technology, so phrases like ‘Cutting...

I have recently returned off the Celebrity Reflection round the Caribbean. I must say I do like going away this time of the year to get a bit of sun breaks up our long winter!!I flew into Miami on the 24th February taking a direct flight with BA from Heathrow, after a 9-hour flight and then a 2 wait to get through passport control I finally arrived at my hotel for the evening. I stayed at the Marriot Courtyard Miami Beach South Beach which was in an ideal location for an overnight stay. ...
