  1. I always enjoy intelligent sarcasm! I see what you did here! 🤣
  2. For our children, we get OBC and Tips paid; originally, their drinks package offered was only the classic non-alcoholic and they only drink the frozen virgin drinks (which isn't covered). It's cheaper for us to pay for that out-of-pocket. DH and I get the classic (upgrade to Premium) and OBCs. We maximize the use of the drink package in all facets available. (Teas, Sparkling Water, Bottled Drinks, Premium Alcohol) 🤣 Lady_G
  3. So.... Is this going to be applied to new bookings, or should I expect to shell out $252 in November on our 9- night out of Port Everglades, for my husband and me? (Why not factor this new fee into the rate so I don't kick off my cruise already in the hole?) Thanks for the update. I had not expected to use half of my OBC towards fees that I didn't expect.

  4. Friends, A nasty rumor is going around that recently (yesterday) there was a release from Celebrity to TAs that all Perk Drink Packages, will now have a $14/day surcharge charge, added upon embarkation. This amount is not a "tip", or an amount to upgrade the package to Premium, but a daily fee associated to having the perk. Have any of you heard of this? I'm hoping this is simply a rumor, but the rumor spreader seemed fixed in their declaration and concluded with it was "in X's plans to implement" once they introduced the Premium Plus Package (which should be completely independent of this discussion). Thanks to any help you all may be! This may change our future decisions on perks. Lady_G
  5. Thank you for your posting! I will do just as you suggested! I know to some, my posting may seem frivolous; however, I agree my children are entitled to similar/like perks as we are paying full fare for both of them. Lady_G
  6. I'm jumpstarting this thread again: Last year on our Equinox sailing, I tried (very nicely, each time) through Captain's Club (we're Elite) 800#; Front Desk; Captain's Club on-board Rep; and Concierge, and was told they could not upgrade DD nor DS's beverage package. I guess I'll try on our Thanksgiving sailing on the Equinox, this year. Anyone had any success recently in getting their full-fare, minor child's, beverage package upgraded to Premium Non-alcoholic? Thanks! Lady_G
  7. My husband and I always book on-board for future cruises to take advantage of the OBCs offered by X or RCCL. My minor daughter and I are in one stateroom and my minor son and husband are in another. One of the perks we received was the Alcoholic Beverage Package. Last year, we had the same perk but they only gave us the Soda Package for our minor, full-fare children. We ended up upgrading both of their packages to the Premium Non-alcoholic Package so they could have virgin frozen drinks. Should I press for a better non-alco for our minor children? I felt they only receiving the soda package as a perk was not on par for what they "could" have recieved had they been adults; or is the soda package a standard even for non-alco consuming adults? Please, no flaming for bringing my well behaved, full-fared children with me on vacation. Thanks Much! Cherrel.
