  7. Extra purchases on board the ship such as alcoholic beverages, fancy teas / coffees, bottled water, bottled juice or soda pop.  
  8. Specialty dining.  Each cruise ship has the main dining room and buffet where meals are all included, along with specialty restaurants which have a “cover charge” to dine there (reservations are advised).  
  9. Shopping – there are some shops on board the ship (gifts, clothing, art gallery, etc.) plus you may have an opportunity to shop while in Port also.

  11. Royal Caribbean reserves the right to impose a fuel supplement of up to $10 USD per person per day on all passengers if the West Texas Intermediate fuel price exceeds $65 per barrel, even if the fare has already been paid in full.  Air add-ons are available. See the applicable Royal Caribbean brochure or rccl.com for terms, conditions and definitions that apply to all bookings. Other restrictions may apply.  NOTE - since I’ve been in the travel business, I have not encountered this fuel surcharge, however since it is a possibility it is something to budget for, just in case.
