    Scroll down to RCI bit http://www.cruise.co.uk/tailor-made-...drinks-prices/ Lately most of the RCI and Celebrity ships sailing out of Southampton have dropped the service charge on drinks but get the impression the free pour has been dropped for the use of measurer's, but you still get doubles. No doubt other will add more to these comments.

    We are also planning on going on the IOTS with RCI. Is it really true that the 15% surchage (tip) has been scrapped? If so is it on all RCI ships?

    IOTS is unique as it caters mainly for the UK market. It has a different price structure for drinks than the rest of the fleet but be assured, the bar prices shown on the bar lists and menus are 'total inclusive of any staff gratuity'.

    Does that mean IOS has similar prices to P&O if sailing in Europe? Does the ship revert to American ways in Caribbean? Hubby hates the 15% surcharge idea!

    No prices are not the same as P&O, they are still more expensive and yes IOTS reverts back to RCI's standard bar prices when it returns to the Caribbean. i.e. Normal RCI prices + 15%

    Thanks so much for that. Can you confirm that the IOTS bar prices are exactly that of other ships in it's fleet minus the 15% surcharge when sailing from the UK?/QUOTE]

    No it is not. IOTS has its own unique pricing structure slightly above the rest of the fleet but with no added 15%.

    Be aware this only applies to UK sailings. When the ship returns to the Caribbean, prices revert back to Standard RCI + 15%
