What does my cruise fare include?
In most cases, your cruise fare will include your room, meals in the buffet restaurants and main dining room, most entertainment, and 24-hour room service. It does not include discretionary items such as specialty restaurants, organized shore excursions, alcoholic beverages, gratuities, spa treatments, medical services, casino expenditures, or other miscellaneous items.
