We drink moderately on cruises and enjoy it. Prices seem to be
better than a good restaurant in our neck of the woods. We use to
bring a bottle of wine or two for the room while getting ready for
dinner, but no longer do so.....there is no doubt that that clause
that they could deny you passage because of alcohol just me worried
enough to stop.
Where the CL is still operating, we do enjoy that.
I agree the drinks are about the same as going to a restaurant but after nine nights that could really add up. If the cruise lines decide to raise the prices, they just might lose me to the all inclusive resorts.
