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

Idle 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.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

Not for departures from the US (1)

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.

Can you say "intervention" (1)

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.

The ammount you drink, the frequncy you drink and the time of day you drink have NOTHING to do with being an Alcholic. It is why you drink not where, when or how much.

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 LETTERS, FOR THE HARD-OF-READING ; if you don't want to smoke, fuck right off to the NON-smoking bar!).
  • - It's the sort of health-Nazi attitude that means that if I want to suck on a nice relaxing spliff after a hard month at work (24x7 cover and sleep when you can ; try it, you'll want me to roll up that spliff for you!), then I'm going to have to carry a bag of diabetic-horse urine strapped to my thigh for the next three trips to work.
  • - Fucking health-Nazis, take the Dundonian advice and awa' an bile yer heids the lorra yez!

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

What - on your boat you're going to get out of the bar, get into your car and go and drive over a granny? You're going to beat shit out of one of the waitresses and then ... run away into the night never to be seen again?

If I choose to take my own path to my own destination, as long as that doesn't clash with someone else's path, that's my choice.

I thought that America was the land of the free ; how on earth did you let the health-Nazis get the upper hand like this?

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.

I'd say it's not worth it
