[Resolved] Carnival Cruise Lines / beverage package

North Port, FL, United States

My wife and I purchased the beverage package for our cruise on Carnival Splendor sailing on Sept 30th., However when we were on there private island, we found out that it couldn't be used on the island. We were charged $34 dollars for beer. when I asked the server why he said it was to make more money. I donot understand why, as it was entered into their system for charges. I feel I paid for the package approx $1000 and still got charged. I think I should get a refund for the beer.
