My husband and I were quite happy to enjoy our beer in the disney cruise beer mugs we purchased on the ship. This is a family cruise, not a children only cruise. Adults enjoy adult beverages if they so choose to, and our kids were quite content at the children's only activities, so we were happy with our adult only activities. We never got drunk nor did we ever see anyone else get drunk while on the ship. You also have to remember, there are many adults on these cruises without children as well, and those of us who have them are not putting our children at risk by drinking alcohol in moderation. Please don't lump all alcohol drinkers in one group, especially those of us with children. They wouldn't sell it on the ship if there wasn't some kind of "need" for it.
