This is a 4* cruise line not a caravan site - of course they supply towels!! Just don't lose it when you go ashore otherwise you will be charged $25. Yes you can take soft drinks on board (I don't know why you would want to) but just slap a luggage label on the pack and it will be delivered to your room.
I thought the reason for this site was to ask questions and to get helpful answers, not surly ones like yours. New cruisers like me look on sites like this for re-views,tips and general info to help them decide what to do/pack/take etc. I hope there are more helpful people out there that will help, with a little more thought.
NOW, now A of N bit harsh with that one. However, he's right as usual, Yes, there are towels aplenty, in your cabins, on the pool deck and near the check out for the beach when you go ashore. You can if you wish bring soft drinks onboard with you and indeed should you so wish you can top up your supply at the ports en route but I wouldn't take too many on to start off with. Orange juice, fruit punch and lemonade are available from the self-service areas most of the time along with copious amounts of iced water, tea and coffee, and ice cream as well, all free. You enjoy your Silver Wedding celebration which ever way you want too. .... Ida.
Hava a great silver anniversary onboard.be sure to take proof.ie marriage cert and you may get a cake or something from the crew...........they do however only recognise certain wed anniversary yrs...if you check on the RCI website and go to celebrations etc you may find out there......we had our 33rd wed anniv last oct on the freedom in miami.but they didnt think that was one of the important ones.however as it was my brthday too .hubs got them to decorate our room....(room attendant) and also got a cake sorted........was lovely.
As allready said no leave your towels at home......they have thousands.......as for juices..........i wouldnt bother either......plenty onboard for free........Do what we did.breakfast time theres loads of different drinks in the windjammer.....grab a couple and take them with you...........or the cafes on the promenade have never ending fill ups.......buy a soda package if its offered....worth it if you top up at least 2-3 times........bon voyage.......Sue.
Thank you for your helpful replies, I am very grateful. In answer to my two questions then ,we will not bother wih either things.
Hi could not agree more with your reply i am also a first time cruiser in sept and have had many questions answered on this site by helpful friendly people,without the sarcasm and smugness of a,n.i hope you have a truly fabulous time and be grateful a,n is not on your ship.
