I'm new to cruising and new to this forum. We're doing our first cruise on Radiance in December. There will be 6 of us, including a 9 and a 6 yr old.
My question is about the dining packages, e.g. the 3 or 4 night dining package. I see in the fine print that "for restaurants with a la carte pricing, package includes a $35 credit towards the food portion of your bill". But we're already paying for standard dining in the cruise fare, plus extra for specialty restaurants in a package (if we go for it) but that only covers a $35 and it might cost quite a bit more. How much more is it likely to cost? Is it worth it? Any tips?
