Default Costs on ship....

The last time we cruised was approximately 8 years ago. Well, we will now be taking our oldest on a cruise to the Southern Carrib next June on AOS. Here's my question, what is free and what is charged on AOS...ie, drinks/sodas, food at Johnny Rockets/Portofino, activities, web access, etc...also, please let me know if there is a web site that has a breakdown of the above prices. Finally, we booked an owners's suite and would like to know other people's experiences with the consierge lounge and other benefits that comes along with the suite.........any help would be greatly appreciated......

Thanks,
Carl

All "sports" activities except for the golf simulator are included in your cruise fare. I think you need long pants to ice skate and climb the wall.

Drinks cost about the same as most landbased bars, while a can of soda will come to $2.01 including gratuity. If you choose to purchase the soda package, it is $6 per day for adults and $4 per day for children plus 15% gratuity - this entitles you to fountain sodas ONLY.

Portofino is $20 per person and is for guests 13 years of age and older.

Johnny Rockets is $3.95 for all you can eat plus the cost of beverages.

Not sure about web access as we don't use it, even with the free coupon we get.

Included beverages are coffee (plain - fancy cappuccino/lattes are extra), hot tea, iced tea, lemonade and juices (only at breakfast).

The conscierge lounge will get you complimentary "fancy" coffee anytime as well as alcoholic beverages and soft drinks from 5-8:30 (only those over 18 are permitted in the lounge at that time). They also will have a continental breakfast set out as well as "snacks" during cocktail hour. You can also borrow DVD's for your suite.

Great, thank you all so much for responding so quickly. We are now counting down the days and trying to lose the pounds we'll probably put back on once on the ship.

Thanks again.

Carl
