The regular dining rooms are included along with coffee, tea, milk, juice, etc. Any soda's you want are extra and any alcholic drinks are also extra. If you should go to one of the alternative restaurants and J. Rockets, those you'll pay for.

As far as activities, you will pay extra for bingo, some gym classes, golf simulator (but not miniature golf which is included), arcade games and, of course, the casino. All other activities, shows, etc., are included.

All food is included except for Portofino and Johnny Rockets. Nonalcoholic drinks are included except for soda, juice (except at breakfast when juice is included) and specialty coffee drinks (lattes, cappuchino, etc.)

Wouldn't it be nice if they made the genesis ships completely all inclusive?? ..... Including alcohol! One could wish..

drinks included are: tap water, iced tea, lemon aid, orange juice, apple juice, tea, coffee, passion fruit juice and cranberry juice (at dinner only)

All alcoholic, and even non alcoholic fruity froo froo drinks- not included.

And of course, all the food you can possibly cram in your stomach!

Is there a cost to make use of the solarium on board?

The solarium is the adult pool, right? If correct, then no- pool use is free. You just must be 18 and over... or I hear even 15, 16 is allowed as long as they are quiet, reading a book or simply sun bathing... just no route kids/teens allowed.

They sell soda cards for $6 per day... but the tax/fees is a lot.. My last cruise was a 12 day, I thought about it, but $66 + $20 something in fees etc, I dont think so! Orange juice please! besides orange juice mixed real well with the vodka I brought lol
They also sell wine packes, 5 bottles for $120, 8 for ...$$ .. 10 for $$$ and so forth.. im making up prices, but you get the idea. if you are a wine drinker, maybe that would interest you.
We didnt buy the package, but we did buy two bottles on a couple nights.

The only dissapointment concerning drinks is why do they charge for drinks in the casino? On land this is not done. At least not in Vegas or Atlantic City. You are already spending a minimum of $5 a hand at the tables. The waitstaff should just confirm the guest is actively gambling before taking an order.

I agree.. I practically live in Trump Plaza!!! besides, I always give 2 chips to the waitress, so atleast I pay somewhat.. And yes I drop a few hundred playing roulette each time.. They should at least give "free" drinks, if you can even call it that!

Absolutely. I always give a tip per drink too.

P.S. Trump Marina has been my "go to" casino for the last year or so.
