Just FYI and I hope I'm not duplicating any other post -

Starting June 20th through August 31st, the Sip n' Sail Promo will be running for cruises from "Summer 2018 through Spring, 2019". I don't have anything more specific than that at this moment. If you book a mini-suite or full suite, you also get one free specialty dinner.

I am hoping they will allow me to replace AIBP with an OBC as they have at times in the past.

I'm wondering if it will apply to longer cruises. I have it for my 28 day this coming October but I would dearly love to have it for the 49 day we booked for February 2019.

That's a good question, Thrak. I would definitely compare prices before and after the Sip n' Sail. In the past, the fares have gone up on some cruises, thus making the 'free' drinks not such a great deal.

We are booked on the 49 day South Amercia cruise in 2019. When be booked Princess gave us $1,000.00 OBC
for booking. If they offer the drink package for this cruise would we lose the OBC?

Thanks,
Betty

Most likely yes. Was the OBC for anything in particular?

I totally agree, as I would prefer a lower fare as well. I don't really drink, so sip and sale does nothing for me.

Last year the sip and sail came around the same time and I believe the 3 for free came shortly after that.

We don't drink either, however we did get OBC instead of the drink package.

The weird thing about our 28 day in October is that it was listed at the same price as last year but this year included the Sip and Sail. We jumped on it. Of course now it is currently about $200 pp less than our booking price but that price doesn't include the Sip and Sail. On a 28 day cruise the Sip and Sail package for two people comes to a whopping $3,218.20 so I'm not really interested in losing that perk in order to re-fare at the lower rate. (I would never pay that much for drinks but love having it as a perk. )
