Not sure about island star prices but RCI prices in $, pint of beer and cider $11.50 about £6 inc tips. Best boat RCI. Have you concidered NCL GEM good holiday prices to book, great service on boat.

Your talking two ends of a long piece of string here. Independence is the very latest, biggest, all happening cruise liner. Island are a budget cruise line, dare I say it, converted car ferries. You pays your money, you takes your choice.

Hiya dont know how many times answered this island escape was but not star read your berlitz and it will tell you star used to be celebrity cruises and was called horizan escape used to be the ferry at end of day maybe cheap budget cruise line but they are great bunch of staff and get good reports better than some of better class of ships so dont be put off try island they are smaller but better .and as saying goes only get what you pay for ive done 6 cruises with them and cant wait till next year .as for prices its 1.40 for canned drinks beer is about 2.40 prices much as same back home ithink smaller ships can cope better with what you read on this site give island cruises ago you wont be disapointed .
