Default Re: Re: WHY NO FREE DRINKS ?

Don't know if this is a legitimate explanation or not, but... the casino is operated by an independent company and NOT part of the cruise line (same with the spa). They keep all their revenues separate, and I doubt the cruise line is going to ply gamblers with free drinks when they stand to gain nothing by it. I suppose the casino could run up a tab, but why bother when things seem to be working out just fine this way? I would probably drink more if they were free, but I don't gamble any less because they're not!
Cheers, MaryC
