Happy Cruisers has hit the nail bang on the head. My trip back from Dubai to Southampton was spoiled by the ludicrous price of Cunard drinks. It’s not just the cost but after dinner evenings are spoilt by the lack of cruisers in the jazz and other bars put off by the high prices. We are not poor but I hate being ripped off by cruise lines with a captive audience. We loved the QM2 and would like to do a transatlantic crossing but I will never book Cunard again until they change their ways. Next trip is with Celebrity on their Baltic/ St Petersburg cruise with an all in package at a reasonable price, that way I can drink all I want when I want without the dreaded bill at the end of the trip. Surely Cunard must know that drinks purchased per passenger is well down on others in their various fleets.
