I’m sure it will be optional, as it is on other lines (except when included as a perk in the cruise fare, which it is anything but a perk, as the fare has been increased accordingly) and so for everyone saying they don’t want it because perhaps they don’t drink enough, it’s not compulsory.Thanks for the reassurance and explanation.
So many get worked up about it, but it’s not mandatory.
The only time it’s mandatory is when 1 in a cabin buys it, then the other has to. That’s to try and stop people sharing.
The reason this rule is in place is because people are basically dishonest and share packages. RCI used to let just one person in a cabin purchase a package, but reversed the decision because too many were abusing it.
So the minority spoilt it for the majority.

We have been cruising only with P&O for several years now and have been on all of their ships, some more than once, so we are very familiar with how things currently work with them.
We feel very comfortable cruising with them at the moment and hope to continue but we get a little concerned with the various potential future changes and how they will effect us in the future.
