I can see the liquor factor, but the go** sake, soda and bottle water?? That's just highway robbery. We have a cruise booked for next summer, probably our last vacation as a family as our kids are young adults and we may have to look for another cruise line. We booked months ago and then you could bring on bottled water and soda, so I dont't see how they can get away with changing the rules with or without notification, and I'm sure there will be no notification. As much as we're forking over for this cruise, the soda and water should be free!
