I have not seen it on a thread here yet but I am interested in what everyone thinks about the test being run on VICTORY now on the all-inclusive drink plan. From what I read it is $49.95 per person per day PLUS 15% gratuity. The gratuity would add $6.50 to the total per day. As anyone who cruises know that 15% adds a ton of the end of cruise bill. Most everyone says they don't drink that much a day but think about it. Bloody Mary's in the morning, drinks by the pool, wine at dinner, and of course the piano bar or disco at night. At $7 0r $8 a drink plus the gratuity that adds up. Of course you could just buy the drink tickets on-line and the gratuity is included. That way you can tip your favourite bartender hand to hand.
What do you think?
