  1. Dear Carnival,

    I have been on a few cruises of y’all already, and I have had a great time each time. Now, I have just turned 21, and I am currently booked for a cruise with my Girl ❤️💜 this September. We plan on doing a lot of drinking and an Alcohol voucher would really help me impress my Lady.

    Thank you.

    Have a Great Day!

    Best Regards,

    Ronald Kabler

    • You are welcome have a great time

  2. I would like to know how Carnival can demand all occupants over 21 in the same cabin buy the Cheers Drink Package if 1 person buys it. Although I enjoy drinking, my husband has not drank alcohol since 1995, at which time he went through an AA program.
    I know Carnival has this policy in place in order to keep passengers from sharing drink packages, which makes no sense, because if you enjoy drinking, sharing 15 drinks a day between 2 people is not going to be enough to satisfy your desire for alcohol.
    Does anyone know a way to get permission for me to buy the Cheers Package without both of us having to purchase it?

    • Hi , I have heard that you can email customer services and they can sometimes help with this if it is a genuine reason .
