Your last paragrapgh reinforces the point I have been making that, paid for or included drinks packages, it's those passengers who don't drink much who pay the highest price.

The theory does not bother me at all, but the reality is that once a drinks package is introduced, to encourage it's uptake the cruise line will most likely decide to up their drink prices to make it...

I understand Amazon are sponsoring P&O and we will all have our own cabin steward, called Alexa!!:cool:

I can only recount, as I have done many times before, that when Celebrity introduced drink packages the cost of drinks escalated dramatically. Now it may not happen on P&O, but I would not bet on...
