Royal Caribbean’s new two-bottle policy should excite well-behaved, special-occasion-celebrating cruisers looking to wet their whistles, but those planning to party shouldn’t be fooled into thinking they’re out of the woods when it comes to that bulky booze bill at the end of the journey.
Still, we must raise a glass to this news. We love the direction this step steers the ships, and we never pass up a reason to celebrate. After all, two bottles is better than no bottles, for sure.
Royal Caribbean told TravelWeekly it recognized that "vacationers may have a particular bottle of wine or champagne that they would like bring on board to commemorate a special day or event while on their cruise." Mediterranean sailings calling at Italian cities just got a whole lot more appealing.
If you didn’t have a special occasion before, now you do. Cheers.
