Default 2012 MSC Drink Costs - Euros

Hello

I am trying to find out drink costs on MSC Ships while they are in Europe. We will be on Musica in May.

I have seen old threads with menus, drink prices and package prizes but the costs are not current. Does anyone have 2012 prices from a recent cruise?

Thank you

Chris

Based on my January 2012 cruise on MSC Magnifica in the Med, I can add that the alcoholic drinks of the day were typically 5.70 euro (plus 15% service charge) and non-alcoholic drinks of the day were typically 3.50 euro (plus 15% service charge) as advertised in the daily programme. Based on my bill, many regular priced alcoholic drinks were typically 7.19 euro (including the service charge).

Unhappy Cheers Package

For anyone purchasing the adult cheers package MSC UK state the following:

Please note that wine is served by the bottle in the main restaurants. If unfinished the bottle will be stored away for you to enjoy the next evening.

Also:

Cocktail packages are published on board only.

I may cancel my packages if not allowed to take opened bottles back to cabin.

Anyone with very recent experience of this? (Splendida)

I am sailing on the new ship Divina in October and had booked the Cheers package but have just received a reply from MSC confirming an AI 24 hour package for £20.70 per day. Had to book via my TA.

That's an excellent and much reduced price for the AI. You'll definitely get your money's worth with that.

Yes, I thought it was a good deal, as it was only about 7 euros a day more than the cheers package. I am waiting on the paperwork confirming it. I have to pay for it when paying the balance as it was booked through my TA.

Hope you can get it. It does sound a good deal. I was quite happy with the cheers package, but when I saw this All Inclusive I felt it was better. Not that we are going to be using it 24 hours.

Wink msc allegrissimo drinks package

Hi,
I had previously booked cheers package for 2 adults at 230 euros but found out that as this was an onboard reservation I would still have to pay 15% service charge as confirmed in an email from MSC.
The only way to avoid the charge was to take out one of their pre booked packages but at £38 per person per day AI I did not bother. This and the alcohol free package were the only packages offered at the time which was only 2 weeks ago.
MSC have definitely kept a bit quiet about the MSC allegrissimo drinks package which is also a really good all inclusive package (google it to find out more), it includes ice cream, coffees, teas and bar drinks. (But not premium drinks)
You can book it through your TA code 431, total is £289.80 for 2 adults
or the non alcoholic version which includes virgin cocktails, smoothies and milkshakes code 432, total is £151.20.
Just make sure you get an email from MSC confirming it includes 15% service tax. I only found out about this through another website.

Smile msc packages

Glad to have helped. I am now wondering whether they do a special prebookable spa and excursion package that once again is not advertised on their website!

Hi,

As far as I can tell pastries are not included. However, last time I was on the fantasia my Mother in Law had the regular AI and pastries were not included in that either.

This is what MSC say about the Allegrissimo package

Allegrissimo – Excluded Items
Cigars and cigarettes; champagne by bottle and by glass, bottles of wine and spumante; souvenir glasses and drinks served in Souvenir glasses, all food consumptions in restaurants on payment (Sushi bar, Chinese restaurant, Tex-Mex, L'Etoile, L'Olivo, Obelisco, Il Giardino, 4 Stagioni), pizza delivery, food from Sports bar menu, Room service, selection of ice-cream cups from Gelateria, chocolate bar specialties, pastry from Piazzeta on board Fantasia and Splendida.

Shilu, This link is the only info I was able to source on spa packages (see link below). Would love to find a full price list on all individual treatments however I dont think it exist. Searched the net for about an hour for it to no avail!!

There are loads of spa packages available. You can see them under the Booked then Onboard packages section. They are also listed towards the back of the online 2012 brochure. They represent a huge saving, if you like going to the spa. The one I've booked for my 19 night trip on the Opera next month is costing £430 compared to the onboard price for buying all individually of €1,069. I'm slithering between 2 on the Musica (7 nights) at £340 compared to onboard price of €734. they have smaller ones starting from £80 (30 min massage, 30 min facial, 1 thermal suite) the onboard cost of which is €138. they vary depending on the class of ship you are going on.

Mairead thanks for the link re the Allegrissimo. I'll need to ask MSSSSC about it as it's not showing up for either of my cruises this year. I don't drink enough to justify the cost of the full AI but that one would cover nearly all the stuff I do have and probably save up to €10 per day.
