I don't recall the exact prices. We saved a little by buying bucket's of beer and liquor by the bottle. When we bought a bottle of Stoli's for $130 (the same price you'd pay by the shot) they would keep you supplied with sodas or juice for free. You save quite a bit if you tend to tip over the added 15% gratuity. We still tipped a little over on the bottle, but not as much as if we were paying per drink. As far as in comparison to say Carnival, they were about the same on per drink prices. On bottle service, Carnival has them beat. We prepaid for a bottle of Stoli's and it was only $65. I'm not sure if you can prepay for a lower rate on NCL.
