I can't comment on the bingo because in my past 12 cruises, I always found better things to do onboard than waste my time sitting in a room trying to win a magic jackpot but to each their own. As for the constant selling tactics, this is on ALL cruise lines, not just Carnival. In the 4 - 6 cruises you have been on, this is the first time you saw this? And again, in the 4-6 cruises you have been on, this is the first time you were charged for anything taken from the mini-fridge? There should have been a note on, in or near the fridge of what the costs were for the individual items costs are. When you bought the drink package, it also should have spelled out what was included in your specific package. Unless you got a top tier package, I can guarantee that bottled water is not included. How often over the five night cruise did you check your account? You would have seen the charges there. I always check my current cabin balance at least every other day to insure there are no radical charges.
