Drinks can be expensive on any ship. It all depends on what you drink and how much of it do you consume. The only "drink packages" are just for fountain dispensed soda drinks. Sometimes, it's better to take an "all inclusive" cruise line if you feel that you are going to become a fixture at the bars. I have been on many ships and know many bartenders from past cruises. I give them a little tip on top of the mandatory 15% gratuity, and I have found that I never have to ask for a refill and the drinks become a little more potent. By the way, where are my manners...
