I was not going to jump in here but Mr O, Cruisin, TNCruisemand and Mr. Mattox have me chuckling and I needed to say thanks for the laugh.

I'm sure Mz Hollywood will never be back to the formun, but that may be a small price to pay to get people to realize that the kids in their charge are their responsiblity. Hollywood never did say how old the kid really was.. only that he looked 12. So, we won't know if he should have been out late or not. My guess is NOT. My 13 year old doesn't get run of the ship. If not with us or with the youth group (They do have sleep parties, movie night and such late at night) then she better be in cabin because we do check in randomly. And they are never out past 11PM without being with us unless at one of the activities mentioned above.

I'll bet that some group of teens the boy was hanging out with talked him into trying to get booze and he found out that the S&S card claimed he was of age. Once they had that, I bet that not all those drinks purchased were for him. OR he was using an "of age" S&S card from MZ Hollywood.

When I first read the complaint my thought was that Hollywood was claiming they were serving a minor to get them to credit the drink charges... and my first thought was "WHY DIDN"T I THINK OF THAT!!??!" Its a brilliant scheme... order a drink, have the kid sign the slip and then at the end of the cruise hit the pursure's desk with holy hell... maybe that's how all the budlight was used up on your cruise Mr O?

You are right Jim! I should have let the daughter sign for the bucket of beer before intercepting it! The Holiday ran out of BudLight last week also - wonder if that is a sign or something? LMAO

Bud Light, Coors Light? Where's the Guinness? Where's the Moose Drool, Where's the Red Stripe?
This reminds me of when I was 20, going to the old California Golden Seals hockey games, and buying a bucket of Burgie for my consumption at the game! Yeeecccchhhh!

Don't forget Brew 102 and Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Actually the only reason I cruise on Princess is because they have Grolch in 20 oz. bottles.

Really? All those nice things you have said about Princess...?

Now you are speaking my language. Don't forget New Castle!

Light beer! Punch a steak full of holes and you make it "light steak."

Jim, I thought about the scam angle too. Although I am sure this does happen, there was something not making sense about this story.

f-mattox, you were right on with this imho. One question, when will they make Pabst Light? I sneaked a Pabst out of parent's fridge when I was 16, first beer I ever had.

tncruise, they did not sell the buckets mixed at the lower price because the Coors is 12oz cans and the Bud is in 16oz aluminum bottles. We could get them in a bucket but was a different price than when was 2/2 both 12oz.

chef ken, punch a steak full of holes and it is ready to marinate Any reccomendations?

That explains it..we were mixing BudLite and regular Bud in same size containers. About Lite beer, they call it that because you drink one and pee two!
