Review summary

The cruise itself was fantastic, food and staff were pleasant. The $ 100 Alcohol increment package is a rip off they will steal the balance and not refund or provide a credit. It is a shame that corporate policy is so off balance that they will forgo $ 40,000 in additional cruise's for $ 300.

The $100 alcohol option is a rip of, (my bad fine print), If you don't drink up all your money, they will keep it for me it was a theft of $ 300 dollars. I guess the gain of $ 300 for Carnival is a loss of $ 40,000 in future revenue between two couples, is a good deal for them.
