Default beach towel

Hi,

I'm gonna be on my first cruise to Southern Caribbean on 12/15 on Radiance (Royal Caribbean). I would really appreciate your help on these questions:

1. When I order room service, is that included in the cruise price, or do I have to pay extra?

2. Does the cruise line provide beach towels that we can take with us to shore?

3. Is bottled water expensive on the ship?

I'm a little nervous but also excited about my first cruise. I'm so glad I found this web site; I've been reading and learning a lots about cruising from this site.

Thanks a lot

Room service is included in the cost except for sodas, or alcoholic drinks. A small tip ($1-2) is appropriate to the person who delivers.

2. Does the cruise line provide beach towels that we can take with us to shore?
Yes, they'll supply beach towels for u to take along.

3. Is bottled water expensive on the ship?
Not cheap! U can always pick some up in ports of call, if u like.

Sure u'll love cruising!

Regards,
Kuki

Hi, Hanna ...

A little late checking in here. Donna's and Kuki's answers are right on.

What we do is bring ONE bottle of water each onboard and fill it up from the tap in the bathroom. Ships' water is probably cleaner than what comes out of our taps at home.

Do NOT lose the beach towel the ship provides. There is a hefty charge for lost towels. You can also take more than one per person.

Of course you're nervous and excited. A whole new adventure before you. ENJOY !!! And if we can answer any more questions, just holler!
