We have been on both OV and OV2 and they keep any drinks purchases until the end of the cruise. You can have wine in your cabin but you pay extra for this. There is a cheap duty free shop at the port in Palma and my husband went back off the ship twice before we sailed and each time managed to bring alcohol back on. Normally you are required to hand over any alcohol bought in port and it if given back at the end of the cruise. If you look on the internet you will find some truly amazing ways that people bring alcohol on board.

Most cruise lines allow you to bring on two bottles of when when returning to the ship, but for drinking in your cabin otherwise like in any other restuarant corkage will need to be paid to drink your own wine in their restuarant!

There is wine for sale in the ship's shop for consumption in your cabin, but it's pricey. Although I shouldn't admit to it, if you hide a few bottles in your main luggage it gets taken to your cabin on boarding and you can then enjoy it at your leisure. I always get my bottle of medicinal brandy on board this way and it gives me satisfaction to knwo that I've beaten their petty rules.

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...

Brilliant News For Solo Travellers!

By Michelle Fennelly

Michelle Fennelly's blog

As a single traveller the majority of cruise liners will charge at least 100% supplement on a twin berth cabin for sole occupancy; this is actually double the price which in my view it is just ridiculous. It isnt fair and its not acceptable and its about time most cruise liners understood that a lot of their guests do travel alone.Well my good news is that Fred Olsen are doing special offers for solo travellers, eventually a cruise liner that has listened to their guests.The deal Fred Olsen a...
