I have not thought of it that way but you make sense. I wonder if Princess realized that is now more like a coffee card except you cannot share the punches.

Clearly Princess knows what it is doing and sets these plans up to maximize revenue, but I wonder how many take the PBP versus how many would take X drinks per day and pay individually when you go over X - no sharing. Clearly what X is, how much X plan costs would factor in to this but I have to think it could work.

With PBP, you are not buying 15 drinks per day. You are buying up to 15 drinks. If each purchaser were getting 15 drinks per day, the price would probably be considerably higher.

Bottom Line: Both in the same cabin do not have to get the Beverage Package ... but you may not share.

Fountain for the soda package.

Don't forget the Gold and Silver wine packages which offer 7, 10 or 12 bottles of wine at a discount. These work like the coffee card in that they are punched and, of course, the bottles of wine can be shared. They aren't available on all voyages though. Ask your dining room waiter.

Since they now impose a limit of 15 drinks per day many people are interpreting in just that way.

No, you should not be allowed to share.


The beverage package used to include unlimited including alcohol drinks for the person who bought the package. There was too much cheating (sharing). Princess imposed the 15 alcohol drink limit to cut down on sharing (cheating), not to encourage it.

But you are purchasing more than just alcohol drinks. Unlimited soda and coffees. I know some people who get 4 specialty coffees a day. That would be around $25 a day.

Not going to happen.
