The drinks on RC are quite expensive if you ae a drinker, the soft drinks you have to pay for but on boarding the ship you can buy a pre-pay sticker which they will stick on your room card, it is about $30 depending on the length of your cruise and what ship you are on and this entitles you to free unlimited drinks throughout the duration of your cruise, I think it is well worth it as when the weather is very hot your drink can get very warm so you can have another one and so on and so on.

They're not as expensive as you'd think actually. Copy and paste this link into your browser and you'll see a price list of drinks on board the Serenade of the Seas from 2005. Things have probably gone up a bit since then, but not too much. http://www.elite.net/~thehalls/barmenu.htm.

Next time I think I will get off and explore, weather permitting. Here is what I missed and what you could do when visiting this lovely French Town.A Taste Of Normandy Unlike the rest of France Normandy is blanketed in apple orchards instead of vineyards. For centuries these apples have been used to make a bubbly fermented cider and distilling that cid...

There is a wealth of affordable voyages available if you know where to look. Over-capacity in cruising hot-s...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
