Never been on Costa Cruise but the ones we have been on the drinks were hotel prices.

Sailed on the Costa Victoria in July, the cost of the drinks are average european prices with cocktails of the day at a special price - watch the 15% service charge which is added to everything you charge so can bump up the price, also if you want water make it clear to them that you want a glass of water which is free but they will serve you a costly bottle (especially in the restaurant). Costa drinks are better value than on other ships.

My wife, daughter and I were on the Costa Victoria in July. We purchased a drinks package called X1 for just under £50.00 each. Which included unlimited wine, beer, soft drinks and water by the glass? During lunch and evening meals, not many people know about this. It is worth noting lunch lasts between 12 and 4PM. Hic'Hic.

Went in April on Costa Concordia, our first ever cruise.Visited Athens, Cairo, Rome. Superb time.Re your drinks question. Yes, a bit pricy, 4.50 euros for a beer and Mateus Rose was 18 euros a bottle at dinner.Tea and coffee free allday, but not in the evenings.Arn,t all drinks expensive when you are part of a "captive audience"? ie:- Test match cricket, top golf, theatres etc.David & Gill Liggin.

We have been with Costa twice and both times where wonderful. The drinks prices seemed very fair to us, we purchased a drinks package on board which covered our wine and bottled water. They have a cocktail of the day for a reduced price and the others are about 6 euros.We have spoken to other cruisers and they agree that Costa drinks are very fairly priced. Enjoy your cruise.

I went on a Costa Cruise on the Costa Europa this summer. The drinks were what you would probably expect to pay in a bar - for example a glass of wine is 4 euros, and the cocktail of the day is 4.75 euros. However, on top of this you always have to pay a 15% surcharge which is considered your tip for the drinks waiter. Hope this helps.

The Amazing Royal Princess ...

Emma Davis's blog

I was recently lucky enough to spend 3 nights on board the beautiful Royal Princess sailing from Southampton to Dublin, and being a over of the recent hit cruise programme ‘The Cruise ‘ I had an idea on what to expect but actually sailing onboard her was a million times better!Once you board the main centre point of the ship is the piazza, which constantly has a buzz surrounding it, from line dancing, speed painting, fruit carving plus more during the day you also have various bar...

How great was Independence of the Seas?

Adrian Partridge's blog

You must read this if you are thinking of booking to go on Independence of the Seas. The Million Dollar refit has meant the ship now has more to do than ever before. For families it makes Royal Caribbeans already favourite ship in the UK, an even more attractive proposition.I know fun when I see it and Splashaway bay looked like fun with a capital Splash the children that were enjoying the water in the hot sunshine all had smiles on their faces. The lifeguards, although they have a serious si...
