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... Welcome to Cruise-Chat!!

Hi again. many thanks for your welcome and reply. My husband and I do not drink a lot but was just wondering if they do a package.Beer for my husband. brandy/rum or wine for me. and maybe a few cocktails.It is just nice to know it is all paid for up front.Would you know if there is anything else that has to be paid for that is not included. i.e ice cream .? many thanks again.

You may also want to inquire about RCCL's "wine and dine" packages. You purchase the package and enjoy a different bottle each evening with dinner. I am not sure of the price but several couples at tables around us took advantage of the deal.
