Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by mcdonnell (25 Nov 08 11:24)

I am not really sure what you are saying, I am assuming that you consider RCI drinks to be expensive. Does this mean that the cruise and cruise line that you finally choose will mainly centre around the price of the drinks? I am at a loss to understand this, if it is so, because to me a cruise has far more than that to offer. .... Neil.

No it doesnt revolve around drinks at all i am answering other peoples reviews and aggreeing with them about the price of drinks especially when you have children, and also on a budget with RCI as with any other cruise line as well, its just that RCI are a little more expensive than P & O not sure about other cruise lines always been with P & O, but i might be changing due to problems with them for 2009 so for 2010 i will be changing cruise lines. I am not tee total we work hard were entitled to a drink now and then and chill out when we are holiday, cos we have to save all year around to pay for our holidays, as i said we have to budget our holidays were not rich. Any way thanks again who answered my previous questions about hols change.

Picking up my Shanghai Blog from last year – you can read the last one hereAfter a great night in Suzhou, we were due to check out of the hotel to move on back to Shanghai. We went for breakfast in the hotel restaurant we found this to be much more traditional and didnt have the selection we were afforded at the hotel in Shanghai. There were pastries and there was what looked like an omelette station but much of the selection was very Asian based – we fueled up ready for our d...
