The bread is lovely freshly baked all different types. THere is a good mixture of fruit juice cereals and the bacon is done uk style for the uk guests, great sausages.

Oh, think I forgot the most important part of this question.. by available I meant included with the basic full board package (not what is avalable to buy extra) .

Thanks so much for this info .. :-) We arent going till next Nov but there is going to be 8 of us and we are paying all of it so we need to really look into the budget we are going to need asap! (We are taking our 2 teen daughters and both sets of parents as next year one set has their 40th wedding anniversary and the other set are both 60 - it's also our 10th wedding aniversary on day 19 when we get to Rio!!)............ we have cruised with Royal Caribbean before on a similar sized ship to island escape and on a much bigger one and loved those ... to be honest if i could have done/afforded this length and type of cruise with them i would be going again (we are doing the 20 night one to Brazil)but with 8 people island was the only option and i have reservations about them and about the ship, but you have made me feel better about it :-) .......... btw, we now live in Chester but i lived in Dunfermline from 2003 to mid 2005 and in Rosyth for 2 years before that! small world right enough i guess *lol*.
