There is now only 1 drinks package on Royal Caribbean. The Deluxe at $55 Dollars and 18% tax on top per person per day. It could cost you with the abysmal exchange rate at the moment, £1000.00 per person for 14 days. A right Royal rip off.

Never been on RCI but have been on sister line "celebrity " and if they are anything to go by I would definitely say no to the drinks package. It's roughly for two per day £100 for the cheap package and about £1000 for the branded drinks package for a seven day cruise. As both are the same company would say RCI would be the same. Why not phone or look on their web site.

Standard coffees and tea are complimentary at meal times in the restaurants - and 24/7 from drinks stations in the self-service restaurant. Fruit juices are complimentary with breakfast in all restaurants and until mid-morning in the self-service restaurant. Chilled, still lemonade and ice tea are available free of charge 24/7 from the self-service restaurant. Expect to pay for specialty teas and coffees, and for all other non-alcoholic drinks (such as Coca Cola, Fanta, sprite, mocktails, etc.).

I've just checked my cruise planner and it say £612 per person? There's no mention of 18% tax?

If any business pushes a product or service relentlessly I have suspicions as to its value. Funeral plans are currently top of my 'avoid' list. Drinks packages are another 'must avoid'. The ridiculous prices some cruise lines charge for alcohol are intended to help encourage us to buy a package but for me it has the reverse effect: I don't drink alcohol on cruises, only at ports of call where I use the free internet in a cafe or bar - two savings in one!

We have just returned from a lovely week away in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote. I went there with my partner Darryl and our 3 children as well as other family members.
