I would appreciate the chance even to purchase said package, as you can with Royal Caribbean (not that I have sailed with them but from looking online for a future cruise).

I used the soda package last time which was great value and will do on my upcoming transatlantic but the chance to pay a set amount and not have to keep track would be nice. It isn't just for the alcoholic beverages but for the coffees, mocktails, fresh juices and bottled mixers. They all add up at the end of the day!

We're American and saw the Cunard "Big Balcony Offer" of free drinks and assumed it automatically applied. We booked through a So African travel agent who never mentioned anything either way. Now I have asked and I am dismayed that we are offered nothing. Any suggestions?

The "free drinks" offer is, to my knowledge, only offered to the U.S. market and would have to be booked with a U.S. based agency or on the Cunard U.S. website for passengers with a U.S. address. Additionally, it's been offered as a short term booking incentive and not something that's always out there. Finally, it has only been for those booking Grill accommodation.

Forgot to mention, we are in Queen's Grill and have a US address, billing address, and used a US credit card, but a South African travel agent. Also Cunard online ad only said it had to be booked by July 31st, 2018. Not happy.

I suspect it's owing to being booked outside the U.S. As so often discussed here, Cunard like most lines is very much into market driven pricing and it's where you live and where you book that determines what you pay and what deals you get.
