Q – We are about to book a two-week river cruise on AMA, one of your top-rated lines. We will be traveling with good friends for two weeks on the Magnificent Europe Program. In evaluating costs we were wondering how the top three lines vary in terms of what they do and do not include in the way of beverages. If we are paying for every cocktail, things could get expensive.
A – The cost of liquor and beer does vary from line-to-line and destination. This is, as you can see, one reason why Tauck sells for a price premium. It appeals to those who like a more inclusive experience. Here is the latest listing of inclusive beverages on the top three-rated lines. Hope the olives are also sufficient for your needs:
