Drinks Package price increase

Recommended Posts

On the Grandeur last week, I ordered the drink of the day when I got on. It was $12.50 with gratuity. It used to be that the DOD was inexpensive. Decided then and there to purchase the beverage package! I guess that's their plan. [emoji4]. But I enjoyed it!


I am going to purchase for the last 5 days of cruise coming up, the Ultimate package, and I am therefore going to use some onboard cruise credits. I am told by RCCI that the price includes the 18% gratuity. Is that not correct?

Also I am usually ordering wine by glass and things like tangueray martinis or margaritas. From the gist of this thread I am now wondering if these common drinks are too expensive? Anyone know?

Cost to purchase the ultimate drink package for my Explorer cruise from Sydney to Seattle is over $1,600 per person. Cruise is 24 nights long.




I wish there were other options available on these long cruises.





24 nights! That should be a blast, and those port stops look awesome as well! :-)
