We've cruised Royal, Carnival and Princess....mainly Princess. Our last Royal cruise was November 2015 aboard the Navigator and we've sailed the Oasis too. My impression is that Royal has raised liquor prices way higher than other lines, I feel to steer us towards buying the beverage package. We don't purchase beverage packages, but if they're thrown in to the deal at booking we're up for it. Just off the Crown Princess and drink prices were $8 bucks to $10 usually, I've heard Royal is much higher. I also heard they're selling "drink cards".....? Is this true....what are the details....? Our next cruise will be aboard the Explorer of the Seas in September and I'm trying to get a feel for it now......thanks for any info you can provide us.
