Only ever cruised with Celebrity so far.

Looking to book a cruise out of Florida, Carribean.

Seems like RCL have discontinued Beverage (Alcoholic) Packages from US ports.

Apart from Celebrity, is anyone aware of any Lines that offer these from US ports? Thanks all

MSC also has drink packages. They vary by sailing and by where you book.

HAL's beverage packages are not that great.

$50.00 Beverage Card cost $50.00 (no deal here)

$50.00 Non-Alcoholic Beverage Card cost $50.00 (no deal here)

$100.00 Beverage Card cost $95.00 (save only $5)

$250 Beverage Card cost $225 (save $25 here)

$50.00 Soda Card cost $25.00
The soda card costs $25 but has a face value of $50. Each time you buy a soda with it $2.24 ($1.95 + 15%) is deducted from the value. $50/$2.24 = 22 cans, with $0.72 left over. You can use that $0.72 with $1.52 on your room key card (or another soda card) to get another can. (If you drink a lot of coke -- this is a good deal)

Does anyone have a description of what Princess offers in the way of drink packages/cards? I saw on one thread that these can be purchased ahead of the cruise for a discount...how would I do that? Just want to be sure I have the right amount budgeted for drinks!
