Answers 2 and 4 are a bit "Smart Alec" to me. We're on this cruise in June 2008 and I am a confirmed Cyderholic. I live in Bournemouth where I can buy Vodka - I'm not Russian - I can buy Budweiser I'm not a Yank This is supposed to be a 4 star Yankee ship isn't it.Perhaps they should live a little. like "Life beyond Baseball" To be honest I've cruised a few times before (watching my budget - unashamedly) and I am fed up with being taken to the cleaners over having a drink whilst on board. The same applies to poor value so called Organised Trips ashore. Barry (grumpy old git - British.
