Are Your Meals Included on a Cruise?

If you're thinking of booking a cruise, you'll probably wonder how many expenses you'll have beyond the initial price of the cruise. For instance, are meals included?

The good news is that your meals are included on a cruise.

However (isn't there always a "however"?), not all beverages are included (everything from sodas to alcoholic drinks are considered "extras" and you'll be charged).

Also, the big resort ships all have "alternative" dining restaurants these days that serve a wider variety of meals than the dining rooms. These restaurants take reservations and can cost anywhere from $10 to $30 a head for meals.

So, yes, your basic meals are included on a cruise, but if you think you'll want to try some exotic extras (like a diet coke), then take some extra money along for food and drink expenditures.
