Secondly how do you pay the supplement for the fri/sat. Is it through booking or check in when you arrive.

Many thanks

hi there, on the main page when you go onto this deal is says you get breakfast and dinner one way, but when you click buy now the options are worded "upgraded seaview cabin, dinner, breakfast one way" which implies you actually get dinner in both directions but you only get breakfast one way (outbound I assume). Can you clarify? Never been on a ship like this but I assume even if dinner isn't included both ways there is plenty of option to buy food on-board anyway?
