Review summary

I bought the drink package after being falsely assured that Truly spiked seltzer would be available. It was not. I had to go to 5 different bars to find just 1! Then if I wanted another I would have to pay a waiter $5 or a bartender $10 to find me one on the ship. Absolutely unacceptable. The MDR WAS AMAZING and somehow had one for me 2 nights at dinner. Certainly nowhere even close to what I spent on the drink package and gratuity. I’m giving RC a chance to make this right with me or I will go on Social Media and rant.
