Hi we are going on the IE in a couple of weeks, we've also booked a suite. What were the suites like, is there a fridge T/C making facilities in the room. Also led to believe that if you have booked one of the higher cost cabins you get priority boarding, did you get this and how did it work. Thanks

The all inclusive includes the drinks you mentioned but for the gin it will not be Gordons but some other brand - Gordons will be AI with a small supplement. Wine by the bottle is not included but by the glass is. However the All Inclusive is actually now called Drinks Package and it can vary - it is not All Inclusive as for example bottled water is not included either.

thanks for that i think the bottled water issue is wronge but i suppose they have to make money somewhere but in the brochure it does state a/l. the reviews for the food and staff have all been great so we are really looking forward to it.
