Down at my local, a pint of bitter is £2.20 and a gin and tonic is £2.80. Drinks are cheaper at Weatherspoons and cheaper still in Tesco supermarket.

People are sometimes not very helpful, are they? Drinks prices vary a lot. It also makes a difference if your tipps are added automatically - 18% I believe on some ships. Some ships have 'happy hours' before dinner when drinks are a bit cheaper. When you have decided where to go ask again and you might get a sensible answer from our 'seasoned cruisers'. Whatever you do, don't be tempted to buy alcohol in Scandinavia (including Iceland), my husband is still recovering from the shock of £9 for two beers and that was 10 years ago.

Mrs Cooke, lighten up, you know as well as the rest of us that this was a ill thought out question and deserved the derision heaped upon it. If you condone this unintelligent type of question you will only encourage more. It is incumbent on a questioner to at least give a little thought to what they are querying. .....Neil.

First thank you to cooke and you are right in that i should have been more specific about the question. I have just been on a Thompson cruise and was a bit surprised by the price of the drinks in that they were on par with my local and i was expecting to pay more. Now i know cruises may vary but i was hoping that experienced cruise goers would either confirm that i should expect to pay the same or more on other cruise lines.

So not only do these ‘Isles of Enchanment’ have amazing history but also some beautiful species of marine and wildlife.Puerto R...
