It depends on the cruise company and how much they add for gratuities. 18% in some cases, I believe.
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.
In the same vein as your reply if you cant provide an answer then don't bother with a comment?
