Norwegian Sky will offer on their 3 & 4 day Caribbean cruises from Miami, unlimited beer, wine & premium spirits. There will be free soda for the kids. How do you feel about this new development? I do think that prices are higher. The cruises are aimed at young adult and families. Would you go on this cruise?
Norwegian Sky - Unlimited Beer, Wine & Premium Spirits
Sounds good to me
I have done a lot of the Carnival 3 and 4 night cruises, they are party cruises with people drinking to drunk (cheap get away from my local port). With the NCL Sky doing the 3 and 4 night cruises for about what carnival charges I can see this turning to a from cruise ship to drunk tank. Lots of college student and 20 stupids..... ops 20 somethings going for the 3 nights of pure party.
Thompson Cruises runs Island Escape in Europe with low shelf drinks included, Extra charge for better quality liquor. ( they also only do Buffet style dining unless you pay an extra E15.00 per meal for a dining room with service) In it's reviews most are ok to good with few remarks of lots of drunks. I think the Europeans handle liquor better then Americans, since Europeans are socialized with wine with meals.
The NCL Sky will be on my avoid list
I probably would avoid these NCL cruises even without the free liquor. I have been on Carnival's short cruises and prefer the longer cruises - not only because of the party atmosphere but also because the cruises are just too short.
I am going on two back-to-back river cruises next week. There have unlimited wine & beer. I have been on these cruises before & no one gets rowdy. As stated above, it is an age variable.
It is not just age, River cruises get a different class of clients then a local 3 night cruise.
