That is very interesting. I wonder what motivated NCL to market this? We have never been on NCL but know folk that have whom do say good things about the line. Heard a lot of negative as well but not from those who I am familiar with. The Norwegian Sky reviews seem to be rather mediocre and the ship is about 16 years old. The age shouldn't be a factor as long as they keep the ship up. However, I wonder if they are not trying this gimmick to bolster sagging bookings. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the major Caribbean cruise lines take this development.
I note from time to time where cruisers complain about the degree of inebriation aboard vessels, however we have never experienced a cruise where we witnessed drunks or anyone close to it except one time on Princess years ago. We have even been on many Regent cruises where alcohol is included and have never seen anyone come close to overdoing it, probably because we all average a little longer in the tooth on that line. The Princess episode involved a middle age couple who started sucking on the juice at the pool bar before noon and by midnight they were staggering from wall to wall. Wonder they didn't fall overboard, and that lasted the entire voyage.
We haven't ever been on a booze cruise though. This NCL package seems to meet the hallmarks of exactly that, a booze cruise, I would be very wary of booking this one unless you love to party. Maybe if I was 55 years younger, haw.
