Welcome to Cruise Critic. The cost is $49 per person, per day + 15 percent autogratuity so once you pay for the package, the tipping will be included. You can always another tip when you are served as you will have to sign the receipt and there is a line to add a gratuity if you wish.

Think I read somewhere that the packages will not be offered during the "spring break" which I believe this takes in part of March and April. We are cruising in Europe in April, does anyone know if the restriction applies in Europe or just the USA? O'h and no we are not addicted to alcohol just like the idea of paying for our drinks up front as we do withour gratuities.

It is for any drink $10 and under. If a canned beer is $6, it would be included.

What if your husband went to the bar and had both cards and got a drink for each of you?

I've been wondering about this, would love to have DD be able to run down to bar and pick up Mimosas for both of us while we had breakfast in our room.
