  1. No beer, only one bottle of wine per person 750 ml. You can buy hard liquor and beer buckets for your room. Quite reasonable if you bring on your own mixers.
  2. We've never paid any extra amount for room service. And yes we did order off of the main dinning room menu. I think there was a certain time frame for dinner. Anyways, this is what the "know before you go" says ... "SHIPBOARD MEALS In addition to breakfast, lunch and a multi-course dinner, you can enjoy afternoon tea, a stir-fry or pasta buffet, an ice cream bar, hot hors d’oeuvres during the cocktail hours, and the traditional late-night snack. Try the Dive In, located on the Lido Deck, featuring hamburgers and hot dogs. Complimentary In-Room Dining is available 24 hours a day. Casual dining is available in the Lido Restaurant every night. Adjacent the Lido Restaurant area, Canaletto restaurant serves classic Italian cuisine with tableside service for dinners. Luxury dining options in the Pinnacle Grill, featuring the highest quality meat and fish, is available on all ships. Reservations may be made on board by contacting the restaurant manager. There is a nominal restaurant charge for the Pinnacle Grill, Canaletto and Tamarind (available on Eurodam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Koningsdam, Nieuw Statendam, and the upcoming Ryndam)."
  3. We recently went on a 10 cruise where we did not take the drink package, but we did pre-buy a bottle of rum for our state room. I'm not a big drinker, but I enjoy a glass of wine. We brought two bottles of wine on board as per the rules. We ordered a glass of wine and bottle or two of beer at dinner. (Averaged about $8-$9 each). When we went to lunch in port we'd often enjoy an adult beverage. A beverage package wouldn't have been beneficial to us. Two other couples in our group had the beverage package and they said that they felt pressured to drink more to make sure that they got their money's worth. Think about how many drinks you plan on having daily and do the math. There is a limit on how much each drink can cost, so I think if you're planning to drink less than 8-9 drinks a day, the package isn't an advantage, except to say I didn't have to worry about it.
  4. Long pants only for the dining room. Saw several occasions where guys were wearing very tasteful shorts and were turned away. Most guys throw on a pair for dinner, then change back after.
  5. I too had a credit on my card at the end of the cruise. Since I'd paid $25 for $50, the credit was half of what was left on the card.
  6. I bring leggings for warmth. I have black ones that I often wear under a dress because the A/C is too cold for me. I would think that if the tunic is long enough to technically be a dress (for some people), then I'd say definitely!
  7. On another post this was listed, these cabins are near yours, so .... not sure if same problem exists. I always check for reviews to see if I can live with the complaints. "Cabins 7129, 7125 : a loud mechanical banging noise near the rear wall ceiling, starts randomly at about 4:00am and continues until the late morning. HAL could not identify the cause and we were moved after 5 sleepless nights." 7113 said "weird humming noise" ??? Hope it helps
  8. no beer or hard liquor can be brought on. You can bring soda, and buy a bottle on board for your stateroom.
