Which Extra Cost Items Are Very Worthwhile For You to Pay For on a Cruise?

Even though wine is extra, my husband & I always order either a glass or a bottle with our dinner on a cruise. Sometimes we bring a glass from happy hour into dinner to save a bit on the cost of a bottle. Luckily for us, wine is included with dinner on river cruises.

A suite

Definitely a coffee card - and since Princess lets you use it on future cruises, I only buy one about every two or three cruises. And if the ship has the Lotus Spa ENCLAVE, I would definitely pay for that.

Bottled water. If Carnival offered a coffee card, we would definitely buy one apiece.

Balcony cabin located with cabins above & below our deck!

Coffee... hummmm, I'll have coffee in the MDR, but that's it. Carving coffee isn't great and I can't pay Starbucks prices.

I will drink the MDR coffee and the room service coffee, but I have never had a decent cup from the Lido station.

I love the specialty coffees at the International Cafe. I do order bottled water too.

Wine, water, coffee, balcony (special occasion suite), and a fun cocktail now and again. I think I like all of these and usually do have them. Plus I spend a little bit in the casino... never enough to get a free drink or discounted cruise, but enough to have fun.,

Good thread!

I always like the balcony with cabins above and below. I did take an upgrade to a suite for $500 and it was worth it. Also the $20 extra for the steakhouse.

We have done the "behind the scenes" ship tour and the "Chef's Table" both are worth it but not every cruise. I highly recommend doing both at least once.
