It depends on the cruise company and how much they add for gratuities. 18% in some cases, I believe.

I went on RCI's Voyager of The Sea's in August and found the price of drinks extremely reasonable. We were able to purchase an umlimited soft drinks package for $6 per day including a free souvenir thermos which with the exchange rate was only about £3 per day which was for Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Sprite Lite, Ginger Ale from the pump etc. This was excellent value as just one soda a day would have cost the same. you only show your room card to the satff and they fill up your flask or give you a glass as many times as you like. this even extended to the sun chairs and shows, so you didnt even have to get up to be bought over a free drink. The Beers were $4 plus an 8% tax and then a 15% tax so if you added it up a pint came to approx $5.70, again with the exchage rate this worked out less than £2.80 a pint. I've paid more than that in local pubs at home. The Cocktails were $6-8 and were great value with fresh fruit garnishes and two or three spirits in each.

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison  Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
