Only extras are for speciality restaurants, drinks (alcoholic and soft, specialiality ice creams etc) but you can survive without any of those. Everything else, rock climbing, zip line, ice skating. jacuzzies etc. are free plus much/many more. All the RC ships are fantastic and you will have a great time. We booked on the Oasis as soon as the bookings opened. Can't wait to go on it. We are off on the Vision in two weeks time and looking forward to that. The Independence is fantastic as well.

Not built yet so who knows, but based on current RCI pricing - rock climbing, steam room and sauna are all free. And you don't have to go to the speciality restaurants if you don't want to.

Usually the rock climbing ,zip line/flow rider /ice rink etc will be free ,unless you take private lessons. most extra costs are for things like the massages /hairdressing ,but having sailed with rci several times i can say that the majority of things to do are included in the cost , the trips on land are quite expensive and can often be arranged seperately for a lot less .there is no extra charge for room service and food can be ordered at any time to your cabin ,you just tip the bell boy who delivers it a couple of dollars , great if you have hungry teenagers who have been to the night clubs etc or if you want a cup of tea last thing at night .the ship is huge ,we went on liberty of the seas this yr and that was big and great fun .cant wait to save up for oasis.have a great time and maybe view the ship and all its details onthe royalcaribbean web site www.royalcaribbean.com.

The wall cllimbing and flowrider do not charge for using them. Other charges do apply for Jony Rockets burger resturant and the Chps and Portofino charge extra for using thme. Dont kknow about the zip line as this is new. I would read your brochure carefully or go on line for RCL and you will get all the info. Have a great time it looks as it is going to be a great ship .

Drinks are similar prices to london pubs. No need to pay the extra to dine anywhere other than the main restaurant or buffet as the food on rci cruises is fantastic and 24 hours. Only extra charges are for the beauty/hair/spa treatments if you want them. All activities are free. Make the most of the places you visit and spend any extra cash you have on enjoying some of the wonderful excursions they have on offer. How lucky are you to be going on this exciting new ship. We sailed on the maiden voyage of the Independence and it was fantastic. Enjoy!

My Getaway on Getaway

By Anne Eaves

I have just returned from an 8 night Baltic cruise on NCL Getaway. This was a first for me for the Baltic and on this ship. Having previously sailed on NCL Epic 5 times I was looking forward to trying a different ship and I wasnt disappointed. We had 2 days in Copenhagen prior to the cruise and stayed at the Admiral Hotel which is in Nyhavn. The hotel is situated on the river and is a great location close to the Amalienborg Palace. We had a lovely couple of days sightseeing and used the hop ...

Party Animal At My Age?

My holiday on Celebrity Reflection… What was the entertainment like? Well there is of course the bars and lounges but this ship had something special…….Silent Disco – Now ive got to say i haven’t been to a disco since 1985, so I would imagine a lot has changed over the years and to my amazement we had the Silent Disco, actually the ship arranged two of them, one on the top sun deck and one in the Solarium, which was by day a tranquil place to snooze, swim or try ...
