In the past few years, Explore-4 has been bundled with selected cruises starting in July. If HAL continues past practice, they will add it to cruises for late 2017, and 2018. The promotion lasts usually until mid-November, when the promotion ends. At that point, the cruises it was bundled with will usually drop in price. The Explore-4 promotion has one major feature, the inclusion if the signature beverage package. They also give you a dinner in Canaletto and Pinnacle Grill, valued and $15 and $35 respectively. Another benefit is a reduced deposit.

You have to judge if the additional cruise base price, due to the addition of Explore-4, is worth it to you. You can request a cabin price with Explore-4 and without. Purchasing the Signature Beverage Package outright, would cost you about $51 per day for every day of your cruise. The break-even point is about 6 alcoholic beverages per day, based on a $7.95 drink price and a 15% service charge. If you think that you may consume 6 drinks, or an equivalent amount of wine, beer, soda, specialty coffees, and bottled water, then the package is a good deal for you. If not, then ask HAL, your PCC, or your TA for a cabin price without the Explore-4 promotion.
