I'm happy to see that the moderators don't jump into this battle. This topic gets very volatile on CruisCritic and the threads get shut down fast cause they get insulted with the whole situation.
It's too bad we have to resort to the term "sneaking". Most of us like to enjoy a drink back in the room between showering and dinner...and trying to arrange a bottle, or carrying back drinks from the bar (hoping they stay frozen or cold) is at the least a real hassle...not to mention ultra expensive.
I love cruises as much as anyone...but do find that they pinch you at every opportunity with break-opens...raffles...bingo...draws for free stuff...and $7.00 beers.
