Galveston Cheers package?

Recommended Posts

I have heard mixed responses. Want to clarify. When will our Cheers package take effect on  cruise originating in Galveston. In international waters or the next day? Thanks again. Trying to be budget minded.

The answers above are correct.  Texas law prevents Cheers from taking place until they are out at sea, so it kicks in on day 2

Royal’s package starts day 1 so it’s not that TABC doesn’t allow it.  They do say that liquor needs to be purchased from Texas distributors and pay liquor taxes on it.  That makes the drinks a lot more expensive on day 1.  Carnival chooses not to eat the extra expense while Royal does.
