Default alcohol package on royal caribbean

Hi. Just curious about something...wondering how the all you can drink package works? If someone gets a drink with their drink plan, what stops them from passing it to a friend and then going to get another drink for their self? My husband and I are both getting a package, but the couple we are going with are going to "share" it. Just curious.

Honesty is supposed to work! Don't try to do that in the same bar, they do keep track of what you drink and how much

Watchful eyes of the server and the security cameras that are in all public areas, lounges and pool deck! That is why I wonder so much why things "happen" on cruise ships. Recently on the named Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, I saw the policy enforced (the one you sign for or electronically sign for) when you sign up for the program.

The cute couple, unfortunately had the new groom - "loose" without refund the package and as stated earlier - each drink is itemized and rung up separately, they watch what you order, how you like it (Hard knocks and Rocks or not) and if you have consumed too much. They also watch and crew watches when you have had a little too much and they cut you off BEFORE you go out on the open deck! Supposedly

Updated in 2013 the following is quoted from an email sent by RCI and it's affiliates "*Prices subject to change without notice. Packages include server gratuities, cannot be shared, are not transferable. Your check may reflect an additional tax for certain ports or itineraries. When ordering a beverage selection onboard, you must present your SeaPass card bearing the package sticker to your server. Package does not include room service or in-stateroom purchases, mini bar items, Evian water, canned sodas, bottled juice and souvenir glassware, specialty beers as listed on bar menus, or super premium category beverages. Package is subject to the terms of Royal Caribbean International’s Alcohol Policy. Complete terms and conditions on page 2. 2013 Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Ships registered in the Bahamas. 13032790 • 12/13/13" A link to the flyer is here:

I wouldn't attempt to share one. It's not fair to the cruise line and if the cost goes up due to cheaters, it's not fair to other passengers who follow the rules.
