There are a couple of ways to get slightly cheaper drinks on board: drink of the day, beer buckets, Viva Vino wine packages, buying full bottles of liquor.

Additionally, specific bars will often run specials at slow times to drum up business, so keep an eye out for those.
Another way to score free alcohol is to sit through the art auctions/presentations, they usually give out at least flutes of the house sparkling wine.

Also - once in a while there are NCL sponsored get-togethers that have free drinks available! Watch the daily's...
...both don't drink a lot just want to maybe have a drink a dayEven if you were given the UBP promo right now, it would be cheaper to pay for "a drink a day" without the UBP. If taking the UBP promo, you are paying $16.02 per day. If drinking a drink a day, the a la carte price is less than that for most drinks.
If you plan to drink much soda while on board, then buy a soda package once you are on the ship.

I got the GTY rate and is going to bid for a balcony upgrade. I also bought specialty dining package. This is the most rewarding formula at the lowest cost for me.
Put it this way: if your final on-board bar tab for the two of you comes below $224 (assuming this is a 7-day cruise), you'll have saved money from buying the "free" UBP.

1.) Call NCL to upgrade cabin to get the beverage perk
2. ) Pay drinks as a la carte price
3.) Look out for free drinks on the cruise - from the casino besides the one that they give out to only their players, at the art auction, etc.
4.) Drink own wine - there would be a cork fee.
2. Every day there is a drink of the day that is $8.
3. Look out for the 'tastings', think they run $20; but give you 4 decent sized tasting drinks. Good value for the money.
4. If you want wine with dinner you are better off bringing your own on at $15 per bottle corkage fee.
