You can't argue about personal preference.
Bruce is only saying what most cruisers want. I understand what he is saying and it makes sense to me.
Now - for some reason cruise lines like Seabourn can charge everyone a much higher cruise fare just because they include wine and drinks.
But by far most people on luxury lines say "I know I am paying more than what I consume, but I just prefer the all inclusive approach."
That is their preference. So, Queen, you also have that option. I personally fall into the camp that says "charge me for what I consume."
But to me it doesn't matter whether it is in the cruise fare or after the fact - it is money out of my pocket either way. I don't feel nickel and dimed for anything where I made the choice to consume it.
But that is just me.... and everyone has the right to feel how they feel
