CM&V Premium Beverage Package...

No problems at Beejay4016. Another point that may be of interest...

The Laundry was operating on AUD$1 coins... (3 for the washer and 1 for the dryer) this was a leftover from the P&O days...

This wasn't immediately obvious and there were many days with limited coins being used. Eventually CMV had some tokens made up (not enough) to replicate the AUD$1 coins and CMV were then charging the onboard accounts with €1 for the tokens... this in turn gave the many whingers, another thing to whine about...

But they were fortunate to have access to a self service laundry as there are very few ships offering this service these days...

Laundry detergent was supplied by pressing a button when starting the machine.

So if I were you, I woud take a roll of Australia $1 coins with me... even if they do manage to change the machines over to Euros when the VDG goes into dry dock in September, you can a spend them on your return home.

That's handy to know, so thanks for the tip. I don't expect we'll need it on our Christmas cruise as it's only a 10 nighter, but I'll make sure I have a few dollar coins with me.

Thanks for the info on the drinks (I have been away for a few weeks with limited internet access). I was wondering if the there was a deal for beer such as 15 beers for €xx?

Hi Nang,

No there were no beer deals available on our cruise... except for the 50% off Bitburger towards the end... 

Some lunchtimes, they had buckets of 5 beers for the price of 4... but you couldn't mix the brands... even when they were all priced the same... so we didn't buy them as I was drinking Grolsh & my husband Coronas... best of a bad bunch I'm afraid... 

But...

I think you might be luckier as you may have the German brands leftover... fingers crossed...

When I get home in July... I am still in the UK... I will scan the drink menu that also has the prices we were charged... in Euros...

Cheers Gaybo

Hi Nang,

As promised here is the scanned Bar List & Prices (Euros) that we were charged on the VDG Maiden Voyage - Singapore to Tilbury...

Hope this assists you making a decision...

Hey, thanks for that Gaybo. CMV have announced that Vasco da Gama will have the Aussie dollar as its on board currency so these prices will change. If they do a straight conversion on today's rate the beer will be cheap for a cruise line and cheaper than I can get in any bar in Australia.

Hi Nang,

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you but we were also originally told Aust Dollars, then British pounds and it ended up  being Euros...

Hopefully they will have got this straightened out by the time you board... the prices really were pretty good compared to other ships we have been on...

I hope you have a great time as we sure did... despite a few on board that said they didn't... you can't please everyone I guess is true...

Enjoy!...

Cheers Gaybo

Hi Nang,  On the CMV  Oz web site, If you go to Our ships  -  Vasco - Lesiure facilities You will find both the internet prices, and bar prices in AUD.  Bar Prices you need to click on a button in Lounges.  Hope this helps.  K
