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.

What was she (or he..) thinking? Seriously!Imagine the outcry if a cruise line announced a Men Only cruise? Women, including myself would have plenty to say about it. So why is a Women Only cruise marketed as a good idea?I cant imagine it will take off, and what kind of women would it attract? Hen parties...

Ships Collide !

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

Watch this video on YouTube.I was shocked earlier this week to read a story of the new Seabourn Encore ship colliding with another ship.It turns out that the collision was minor and thankfully no-one was hurt but what left me wondering was how something like this could happen in the first place.The new ship was docked in Timaru, New Zealand at the time and was actually delayed in departure due to the strong winds there. The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...

Balconies in the Arctic Wou...

Ben Allsopp's blog

Quite recently with the launch of some very exciting itineraries, I have had a lot of bookings for the Northern Lights and Arctic voyages of late and every customer has asked me for a Balcony. I feel this is because these cruises are for the destination and the clientele tends to be very well travelled.As people cruise more and more, by the third of fourth time- They tend to go for a balcony cabin and it is very hard to go back down to an ocean view or an inside from there.But the point I am ...
