My first cruise - absolutely perfect

In response to review, elizabethheisey says ...

My husband and I are going on out 1st cruise in May. Everything has been pre-paid except for our drink package. I know that's expensive, but, we will get that when we get on the ship. My question is...since our gratuities were included in our package...there won't be any "surprises" will there? And as I understand, the food is free unless you go to some of the speciality restaurants. I'm not sure we'll do any excursions at any of the Islands. We'll probably just walk around. Anything else you can tell me as what to expect in the way of "extra charges" ?

There should never be $urprises on RCI. Every thing that is an extra charge will state up front or labeled. Better yet remember the only way they can ever charge you is if they swipe or copy info from your room key card. Don't give it and they can't charge you.
