Default Who offers Beverage Packages.?

Only ever cruised with Celebrity so far.

Looking to book a cruise out of Florida, Carribean.

Seems like RCL have discontinued Beverage (Alcoholic) Packages from US ports.

Apart from Celebrity, is anyone aware of any Lines that offer these from US ports? Thanks all

Celebrity Equinox, Ancient Empires cruise, Sept 2009

Carnival Spirit , South Pacific, 12 nights, June 16th, 2013

SS Australis, Southampton to Perth via Cape Town, July 1971

NCL offers several different wine packages that you can purchase at the beginning of the cruise as well as the standard soda packages, but there is nothing for beer or hard alcohol.

HAL's beverage packages are not that great.

$50.00 Beverage Card cost $50.00 (no deal here)

$50.00 Non-Alcoholic Beverage Card cost $50.00 (no deal here)

$100.00 Beverage Card cost $95.00 (save only $5)

$250 Beverage Card cost $225 (save $25 here)

$50.00 Soda Card cost $25.00
The soda card costs $25 but has a face value of $50. Each time you buy a soda with it $2.24 ($1.95 + 15%) is deducted from the value. $50/$2.24 = 22 cans, with $0.72 left over. You can use that $0.72 with $1.52 on your room key card (or another soda card) to get another can. (If you drink a lot of coke -- this is a good deal)
Cruising is a wonderful way to enjoy retirement!
Stopped counting a few years ago -- have done over 140 cruises.

Default Princess Drink Packages/Cards?

Does anyone have a description of what Princess offers in the way of drink packages/cards? I saw on one thread that these can be purchased ahead of the cruise for a discount...how would I do that? Just want to be sure I have the right amount budgeted for drinks!

While we'd all like to help you, it is probable you have the best chance of a prompt and accurate answer at the Princess Forum.

Here's a link.

I don't think RCI has ever had alcoholic beverage packages for the USA......
