Hi MicCanberra My wife and I are RCL loyalists but did enjoy the pacific Jewel and my wife usually gets nails done on the ships and she stated that prices for nails and facials were cheaper than other lines and very friendly staff as well, not that RCL staff are not friendly they are as well. The things you have to pay extra for are the activities where as it's included on other lines then there is the ice cream as it is New Zealand ice cream but you can get sorbet free in the MDR just ask and your friendly waiter will bring you heaps then there is the burgers and pizza which you pay extra for I don't know how much as I was happy with the all inclusive food. What ship are you going on and when?I am on the Eden in November and the Explorer in December. I tend to eat in the MDR whenever possible so do not pay for the ice cream or burgers. I do go to specialty restaurants and will pay for wine tastings or cocktail making and such but you do that on most lines any way. We tend to select our P&O cruises by cheap deals lately.
