It depends on the cruise company and how much they add for gratuities. 18% in some cases, I believe.

Samtamo - Answered a Question by Wood (27 Oct 08 15:17)

I went on RCI's Voyager of The Sea's in August and found the price of drinks extremely reasonable. We were able to purchase an umlimited soft drinks package for $6 per day including a free souvenir thermos which with the exchange rate was only about £3 per day which was for Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Sprite Lite, Ginger Ale from the pump etc. This was excellent value as just one soda a day would have cost the same. you only show your room card to the satff and they fill up your flask or give you a glass as many times as you like. this even extended to the sun chairs and shows, so you didnt even have to get up to be bought over a free drink. The Beers were $4 plus an 8% tax and then a 15% tax so if you added it up a pint came to approx $5.70, again with the exchage rate this worked out less than £2.80 a pint. I've paid more than that in local pubs at home. The Cocktails were $6-8 and were great value with fresh fruit garnishes and two or three spirits in each.
