If by 'Queens facility' you mean Queens Grill then you will be supplied with wine, spirits and beer free of charge in your cabin fridge. On your first day just specify your requirments and even brand and they will deliver to your cabin. In the bars and restaurants the drinks and wine are much the same as in England, perhaps a little higher as they include a 15% service charge - by memory wine starts at about 20/30 dollars a bottle (£10-£15) and goes up to what you want to pay just as in the UK. I don't think they have house wine but they do have a good selection and a genuinely wide range of prices. The main thing is that you are going on the best ship afloat and will have a great time - yes you will probably spend more than you thought but you will have wonderful memories, especially in Queens Grills, which is I believe incomparable with any other ship. If in doubt read the Berlitz cruise guide. Have a great time and don't worry about the alcohol prices or anything else for you should be in paradise!!

Travelled on QM2 last year and QE2 in October so think the pricing would be the same on both? Anyway drinks were very reasonably priced, currency is US dollars. We paid $20 -$30 dollars for a bottle of wine (of course you can pay much more if you want to) and cocktails were from $4-$6 dollars. Hope this helps. Janis.

We are Premier League

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

Although my first great love is Cruising………..my second is football, my beloved Cardiff City to be precise! I’m thinking maybe I should have put my wife and children in here somewhere but they will understand! As a season ticket holder i’ve been a little distracted over the last few weeks as we have been fighting for the second automatic promotion spot to the Premier League! It’s been a close fought battle with Fulham and it went down to the very last game...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...
