Carnival is giving free drinks to passengers still willing to cruise

One of the easiest ways to rack up huge bills on a cruise is through add-ons like bar drinks, spa treatments, and premium dining, so imagine the offer of hundred-dollar drink buy-backs that Carnival Cruise Line is throwing at passengers still willing to keep reservations. Is it worth catching coronavirus for? Though Princess Cruises (a Carnival-owned company) and Viking Cruises have suspended all bookings for at least 60 days, it still hasn’t stopped some deal hunters from committing to the cruise life. One 45-year-old teacher, who (dubiously) claims her immunity is enhanced from working with children, rationalized her Bermuda cruise plans to The Daily Beast: “Would it be better to be in the middle of the Atlantic with free room service? At least I wouldn’t have to cook.”
