Having lived in Miam from 1954-1971 we saw many changes in the cruise growth with oue first experience on the Nassau to the Bahamas In those days the prices were as you mentioned and even 20% cheaper for the drinks.Have been on the Skyward also and you are right on for the drink prices.As for pricing on the other lines they were very close to today on the cruise portion.Would love to see a marketing study as to what lower prices on drinks and wine would do to the bottom line profit picture rather than sticking it to us with the current pricing.Holland had happy hour at the pool bar on a recent cruise and finally sold some drinks which makes the waiters happy with increased volumn.Also remember a cruise from Miami on the Niew Amsterdam, Holland America which was the finest we have ever had and we have now logged over 30 cruises on all of the main stream lines.
