Cruise Beverage Packages: Things to Consider
If you’ve booked a cruise and plan on drinking during your trip, you should consider purchasing a beverage package because in most cases paying upfront in bulk turns out to be cheaper than what you would have paid on a per drink basis. You’ll want to take into consideration many factors when deciding, starting with – how much do you plan to drink? Take a close look at the details of the package, but as a general estimate if you plan on drinking 4-5 drinks per day a package is worth the upfront cost.
If you prefer certain types of alcohol, make sure to check that the package includes your favorite brands. For example, some packages only include certain ‘select’ wines which means you will only be restricted to those for the trip and will have to pay out-of-pocket during the cruise for beverages not on that list of select drinks. In addition, also check when you can use your beverage package credit. Sometimes drinks are only available during specific times on your cruise such as formal dinners.
Tip: Coffees, bottled waters, and sodas are usually included in beverage packages and some cruise lines offer non-alcoholic beverage packages!
