Tag Results: Alcoholic Beverages
Real talk: traveling costs money. (Shock of all shocks!) No matter how many deals you wrangle together, a great trip requires dropping serious coin. Discounts and smart shopping help lower the price tag, of course, but even the thriftiest of globetrotters will cut corners to save a buck. Cruises, with many amenities included in the ticket price, are a safe bet. But travelers who wish to end their day with a chilled glass of wine will need to shell out more for the luxury, as alcohol is a separate cost on most cruises. While some ships offer unlimited alcohol packages for cruisers looking to save, the obvious solution is to cut out alcohol entirely. A new initiative from Royal Caribbean is great news for frugal passengers who would still like to wet their whistle.
Royal Caribbean International will allow guests to bring their own libations onboard, pivoting away from their long-standing policy. Previously, passengers were not permitted to embark with their own alcoholic beverages; those who attempted to do so would have their bottles seized and not returned at the cruise’s conclusion.
Since all we seem to hear about in air travel news these days is added fees and hidden charges, we were happy to track down some refreshing refreshment news over at AA. Starting in October, American Airlines will begin offering free alcoholic beverages to members in its domestic Admirals Club lounges (a perk already offered in its international lounges). In addition to already complimentary coffee, tea, sodas, and juices, members and guests of the Admirals Club can now enjoy beer, wines, and well drinks free of charge (though there will still be a charge for some premium liquors, wines, and food), as well as peaceful lounges, free Wi-Fi, and computer access. But all these perks aren’t for free: First year membership to the Admirals Club is $500, or $50 for a one-day pass.
