Default All inclusive cruises

Are there any all inclusive cruises where everything on the ship in the way of dining and beverages, including liquor, is included in the price?

We went on Princess last year and thought their Soda Cards were a bit ridiculous because Sodas should be included in the price of the cruise.

What do you all think?

To get an almost true "all inclusive" you'd have to take one of the luxury cruise lines.... Regent Seven Seas, Silverseas, Seabourn.....

None of the mass market lines include drinks

I have sailed 10+ times on Regent Seven Seas Cruises. They are all inclusive. All drinks (except very premium), a full stocked and restocked refrigerator, four restaurants with no surcharge, open dining where you can sit with whom you want when you want (two restaurants require reservations) and nothing on my last bill except ship's store and shore excursions. Yes, it is expensive but the accomodations, food, and service make it worth it.

They are out there on the premium lines, but the difference in price will make that sods card look like a bargain.

If you normally book a suite on a premium line, the step up to the luxury lines is smaller than you might think.
