Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
All food served onboard deserves an excellent rating. Drink package was disappointing it did not include cocktails it only included shot of liquor of choice. If you ordered a cocktail you had to pay full price there was no credit allowance made for the cost of the purchased beverage package. Example: Should not have been charged the FULL cost of the specialty cocktails. cost of the shot of liquor included in beverage package should have been deducted. I have never been on any other cruise line that did not included all bar drinks in their drink packages, only exception would be requests for top shelf brands. should have been deducted from the cost of the cocktail.
