So I'm going on this cruise September 25th with a group of about 30 people. My travel agent down in Florida has a special deal with Carnival where they can offer an all inclusive open bar cruise. If you've cruised before you know how expensive your bar tab can be at the end of the week. Here's a break down just to show how bad it really is usually.

For some of you who have not cruised before and even for you who have, you may think an extra $385.00 for a bar package is alot of money. Well that is $55.00 more per day for the cruise.
The prices for Drinks on Carnival as of March 2011 as follows:
Bud Lite $6.61 Miller Lite $6.61 Can of Soda/Bottle of Water $2.24
Can of Red Bull $5.45 Long Islands $10.06 Martni $11.44
Mojito $10.06 Vegas Bomb Shots $9.92 Jager Bomb Shots $10.21
Shot of Patron $12.59 Korbel Champagne $7.76 Icy Cocktails $8.34
All the drinks have an 15% gratuity added. This package INCLUDES that!!
So i got an email from the travel agent today, and they are having a last minute special that is about $100 less than what i paid a month ago.

ALL INCLUSIVE LAST MINUTE DEAL 9/25/11

Limited Space for new bookings only!

Thought i would share this if anyone was even considering going on a cruise this year. I don't benefit at all from this at all if anyone does decide to go, but i just thought i would share this crazy deal.

Nice deal. Alcohol was rediculous on the cruise I took in May. Dos Equis buckets (5 beers) were $18. Mixed drinks were $14. They had some CRAZY special one night and they were only $12!! Between my GF and I we spent ALOT on booze, thankfully I owned their casino's blackjack tables and made my money back :rofl:

Damn that is a sick deal. Too bad the timing is off.

Do cruise lines typically offer deals like these or is this a once in a blue moon type special?

Damn straight. You can't go wrong with Long Islands. I need to start drinking those when I go out.
Houlihans (sp) in Algonquin on Tuesdays are half price and I think that's for the pint. Really good. That's for sure.
