I hope so. I have 2 10 days booked and with the cost of the Beverage package for 10 days for 2, it'll probably be worth it to rebook!

I booked two cruises under the Sip and Sail last year. The promo started on 6/19/17. I'm not sure when it ended, but it is limited on each cruise.

We re-fared our existing S+S booking to 3 for Free on 9/5/17. That was the first day it was available and S+S ended a few days before 3 for Free.

Searched online and found: The "Sip & Sail" cruise deal runs from 12:00 a.m. PDT on June 20, 2017 through 11:59 p.m. PDT on August 31, 2017 and is available to residents of the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Bermuda. Early booking bonus offer of a free specialty dining for mini-suite and suite bookings made before July 5, 2017“

With 3 for Free you get OBC, tips & cabin category & would need to pay for the PBP.

We are likely screwed on this. We have a 12 day booked in a balcony but can't use the Landmark sale as our cabin has gone up by $500 per person since we booked and that would not only negate the OBC from the sale but the higher price would end up costing more in taxes so we would actually lose. I'm thinking the same will be the case with the Sip and Sail. While I would dearly love to acquire that package (yeah, I drink...) the fact that the cabin is now $1,000 more than we paid will end up negating the benefit of the beverage package. Yes, the "value" of the beverage package would be over $1,600 but the reality is that my wife, on a heavy drinking day, may get up to 5 drinks. This definitely cuts the "value" down a lot. I'm more in the range of 10 drinks and have don't mind more. No, I don't get blotto. I just don't process alcohol well. While it's a bit embarrassing, I have actually filled out my limit twice. Once was when my wife was ill and, even though she had the package (we both did as the Sip and Sail perk) I purchased a drink on my bill and took it to her in the cabin where she was "hiding". The other time I just did it "because". At no time was I blotto nor did the staff even consider cutting me off. They just informed me I had hit the limit and the next drink would be charged. (Although on the cruise where they knew I had "cheated" and taken my wife one of my drinks they did offer to charge the 16th drink to her account. I declined, asked for a San Pellegrino instead, and headed off to bed. After all, it was about 1:00 AM.)

I would dearly love to add some kind or perk to this cruise but as, like I said, the cabin has gone up by $1,000, I don't see much chance of getting a "perk" that is worth the cost. I understand that I "should" just be grateful that we paid less but, like most folks, I want it all. POOP!

OMG! What terrible first world problems I have here. It's actually somewhat embarrassing to even think that this "is" a problem. We are so fortunate to live where we do and, even then, to be able to cruise. I'm guessing that there is about a zero percent chance of sympathy and that percentage is well deserved. (I still want it all though!!! )

Actually, I agree with you. Just celebrated our 46th anniversary and, as far as I am concerned, I am doing well.
Note: I did catch the Gone with the Wind reference there.

Thrak,
I am not sure how you are getting screwed because you are paying a lower price?

I am sure Princess would be happy to raise your fares to the point where you could get a benefit by adding PBP.
