The honeymoon cruise on Azamara includes a booze package but I am going to upgrade to the premium package, its only $21 a day, I get a $200 on board credit so it will pretty much be free.

It's a very low class pheasant thing to do, and something I'd expect 20 year olds on a carnival cruise to attempt. Drinking liquor from a suitcase on a megayacht cruising the European hot spots screams poor and trashy lol.

I honestly agree 100%, but to each their own.

Azamara actually lets you bring a bottle on board to gaff in your stateroom.

It works for some people, but after looking at the packages, they really are not bad if you can limit them to just one person and "share." The unlimited just set me back $255, but that breaks down to $36 per day, which is less than a basic bar tab.

Considering we normally have a couple of beers over dinner and at least 1 at lunch, we are halfway there already.

Cruise is in a couple weeks, I am allowed to have two bottles in my room at any given time so I'll be bringing some scotch and maybe some wine. Probably won't get a booze package, we will most likely get a wine package instead, trip needs to get here.

I'd verify you can bring scotch. RC was 2 750 ml bottles of wine only.

We ended up not doing the booze package and were happier for it.

I bought a bottle of wine on the first night at dinner for a "discount" and my wife had a glass each night. It was about $35, but combined with the 2 bottles we brought on board with us, I abstained onboard and she was able to have a buzz in the evenings. That was our only alcohol charge.

All our ports were all-day stops in Europe, so we were able to drink plenty off the ship for 1-2 Euro per glass.

Yup, I confirmed I could bring scotch, and we are thinking most drinking will be done off the ship as well so no need to get any type of additional booze package (we get free booze already, just nothing high end, Smirnoff vodka etc).

We may get a 5 bottle wine package, we figured we will probably eat at least a few nights on ship and we would go through a bottle each meal.

Well, the answer depends on a lot of factors, but for the most part, if you're going to go all out and have a shipyard build a ship that will earn the title of the biggest ever built, you're going to need a billion dollars plus. The current title holders, Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, cost Royal Caribbean $1.3 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively.

I just recently got back from an RC cruise, and sadly, it was not the most pleasant experience, mostly from misinformation from their booking reps. After some choice words on twitter and numerous exchanges with the big wigs in Miami, I was able to make some wrongs right, but it was generally an unpleasant experience. I am sure you will have a good time on the Oasis especially with good islands, but we are done with cruising. The race to the bottom made it not very pleasant for us. Of course, everything is subjective, and our ideas of fun and quality may differ.

I am going on an Azamara cruise, been on two RC with no issues, but my mother in law is a travel agent and retired lawyer who doesn't **** ariund, I think the cruise lines are afraid of her, she gets to the red carpet rolled out for her clients.

I could see how a cruise experience could go south real quick though.

First and only cruise was a RC. It wasn't "bad" but it wasn't our style at all. We departed in November from Venice, Italy, and were the only Americans on board. Somehow it was still full of trailer trash people who seemed more interested in finding the ice cream dispenser than taking advantage of the ports of call. That and openly racist British people.

For general cruises I'll still push the 1000 passenger or so boats over these new mega-ships. Haven't taken one in awhile though but I'm a cruise guy...chill, eat drink do an excursion or two at each stop, don't want to deal with the party hard lines or ones with lots of kids. My favorite lines are Holland America and Crystal.

But the crowd size is relative. The 1000 passenger ship is going to be 4x smaller than a 4000 passenger ship, so the feeling of it being crowded would be the same. The cruise lines you mentioned though would certainly have a more classy crowd and less undesirables.

Staff ratio is better, less mass of humanity is a big part too.
