Cruise Line Rolls Out 'All-You-Can-Drink' Packages 7

Have you ever thought of going on a cruise, but decided your booze bill would be too high after being trapped on a boat with a group of seasick senior citizens for a week? If so, Royal Caribbean has just the packages for you. $49 extra a day will now buy you: unlimited beer and wine that normally sell for up to $10, cocktails, premium liquor brands and a 25% discount on all bottles of wine, glasses of wine over $10 and specialty liquors.

Cruise Line Rolls Out 'All-You-Can-Drink' Packages

  • Not available for US based cruises, ATTFA. However, Disney lets you bring booze on, as does Carnival (within limits). However, Carnival lets you buy booze "for the room" in advance. My wife and I will probably order >2 bottles on our next cruise, instead of one, but still a very affordable choice.
  • If you're drinking $50 worth of booze a day, I'd say you have a problem...

    I'd also say that offering "unlimited alcohol" is unlawful in most states, for obvious reasons.

      And if I have a problem, and you are not me, not married to me, and not financially dependent on me ...

      You can see where this is leading, can't you?

      • ... just what gives you the right to dictate what I do with my life.
      • - That's exactly the sort of health-Nazi attitude that dictates that I'm not allowed to smoke in the smoking bar of my local pub any more (hint : the door to the bar has "Smoking Bar" written on it in BIG FUCKING LETTE

      On a cruise, $50 breaks down to 4-5 drinks. Over the course of an entire day, that's not much.

      The obvious reason is drunk driving. On a cruise, the only person driving is the captain.
