Cruise Carnival puts 15-drink daily cap on alcohol package By Tom Stieghorst / January 17, 2013 Share 1 -- Carnival Cruise Lines has incorporated a daily limit of 15 drinks into its single-price drinks package. The package, which is now being offered on 13 Carnival ships, lets passengers pay for all beverages on a cruise in a single payment. A Carnival spokesman said the cruise line recently "formalized" the limit on how many alcoholic drinks guests will be served within a 24-hour period running from 6 a.m. to 6 a.m. the following day. He stressed that the program is still in a trial period. It started on one ship last summer and has since been expanded to about half of Carnival's fleet. Sodas and most other non-alcoholic beverages remain unlimited and are not counted toward the 15 drink ceiling, he said. Follow Tom Stieghorst on Twitter @tstravelweekly.
