Therein, as they say, lies the rub.
You are expecting all passengers to abide by the rules.
If you had ever worked on a mass market ship, you would know that is impossible.
Even with the rules in place, we still see a growing number of passengers who leave all their clothes at home so they can fill their suitcases with beer and tequila. Then they have wild parties in their cabins, trash the cabins, disturb all their neighbors, start a fight, break a few bones, and then sue the cruise line for getting them drunk.
It is the behaviour of this growing demographic that forced us to put these alcohol rules in place. With the ridiculously low cruise fares we are continue to offer, the number of this type of passenger continues to increase.
