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.

We are people that enjoy a cup of tea in the morning and do not like having to call (or pay) for room service to bring it. I am frequently being asked if there is a kettle in the cabin and it is only really the British C...

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

My NON cruise holiday this Easter.

By Haydn Jones

I’ve just come back from a family Easter holiday to Spain, surprisingly not on a cruise this time. My children are of the age where we have to go away during school holidays.

The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine. Benalmdena is a town on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its beaches and the modern Pue...
