Carnival Fun Shops liquor prices - more intoxicating than ever

Jump to last reply

Carnival Bon Voyage department is now called "Fun Shops" - they pre-cruise sell various items, like gifts, logoed (bags, hats, apparel), stateroom decorations, non-alcoholic drinks, beer and water, drink packages, Cruise Cash (credits) and other stuff. But the Fun Shops best deals are the bottled water, soft beverages and the alcohol (by the bottle, of course).

I give you here a link to an article about the Carnival Fun Shops, which is interesting for comparing the latest "alcohol prices" upgrade in 2014

http://www.shipcruise.org/carnival-bon-voyage-liquor-list-prices-fun-shops/

It appears, that the fun shop liquor cost is getting raised by Carnival Cruise Lines each year by 5 to 10 dollars per bottle - regularly. It could be a matter of inflation compensation, it could be part of the latest trend to lower the cruise alcohol consumption (along with the greenhouse gases LOL),

It could be also just stock market (shareholders need money, you know). All cruise lines make huge money out of liquor sales, so no huge surprise here. This is the official Carnival link to their shops where all items are listed by category (no price history there, though :)
