Just got off ship today Bar prices similar to uk pub prices. measures may be a bit bigger.our ship sailed at 1700 we got on about 2.30 but people were already eating on the windjammer. TRAFFIC AT SOUTHAMPTON CAN BE HORRIFIC as they are doing road works along the dock road. so leave early...PS HAVE A COUPLE OF MEALS IN THE CHOPS BAR.ITS WORTH THE EXTRA.
Not sure what time boarding commences because it depends on the specific cruise, usually it's about 1pm. The beer onboard is about 6 dollars a pint.
We sailed the end of May and arrived at the car park just after 11:00 am, embarkation had started by 12:00. so were able to enjoy lunch onboard.
Draught beers such as Stella and Bodds were available at around $5.60, this included the 15% however so represented good value bearing in mind the exchange rate.
Spirits were about the same price including mixers and it is worth noting that they are not measured so sometimes depending on the bar man could be very good value indeed, one actually was poring the Absolute vodka and said say when to us.
We got to Southampton at 1.20 and boarding had commenced.Beer is about the same as in U.
We have just come ofF Navigator of the Seas,a very big ship.Boarding at Southampton was 2pm and by memory beer was $3 (about £1.50)
The second query about menus,they were not repeated on the second week with us. John HaYWOO.
Hi just got off NOS, beer was $4.90 for a bud in a bottle = a pint once poured out. We got on about 1pm & had lunch in the windjammer.
