I paid $46 per person per day and think that is a good deal. Considering it includes bottled water, specialty coffee and the average drink is $10+ I think it's a no brainier if you like to drink. I drink a lot of water, a few espressos a day and enjoy a few cocktails..... it would add up.
When you submit the bid they state, “. We'll notify you via email at least 48 hours before sailing if your offer is accepted.” I would assume they try to fill all the rooms up to the last minute.
