I found a review that said soft drinks package was US$7.50 per day, but I believe they also do a package for alcoholic drinks. Any idea how much this costs versus cost of buying G&T?

The All Inclusive Drinks Package (AIBP) is USD $57.40 per person per day.

I reckon it is about 6 or so alcoholic drinks per day to make the AIBP package justifiable, and that doesn't include drinks
for your cabin.
I guess you can see why Princess are keen not to allow you to bring much alcohol on board.

The AIBP includes ALL drinks up to AUD14. Some will infer it is an alcohol package. It's not. You do not need to drink just alcohol but can mix it up with soda (canned), specialty coffee, bottles of water etc.

Thanks for clarifying that - it makes it a bit better. I think the ships all make most of the profit from the add-ons they can sell.

The AIBP includes gratuities and is good for any drink up USD $10. A single gin & tonic costs from $5.00 (House gin) to $8.00 (Hendrick's), plus a mandatory 15% gratuity.

Use the attached AIBP Evaluator to figure out if it's worth it to you.

Remember also twice per day - afternoon and night, the exact times vary on different ships - there is a 'Happy Hour' with Buy One Get One For A Dollar (BOGO). This is especially good for beer drinkers because they will give you unopened bottles in a 'take-away' case you can stock your fridge with.
