We're also on Sea Princess in Oct. have cruised with Princess before and take our own favourite instant coffee and instant mix for soft drinks. Tea,(some flavoured varieties, iced tea, coffee, orange juice (only at Breakfast)milk are free during the day in the self service cafes. You have to pay if you want hot chocolate. All these have to be paid for if you use the bars. Take a shower cap and a few pegs.
No, tea and coffee and the like are free along with lemonade, orange juice etc. but all drinks including cokes etc. from the bar a not free nor is ice cream, I find that iniquitous that they charge for ices. If you get up the ladder far enough with the Captain's Circle they will stock your cabin fridge free once. Neil Down.
