Deluxe drinks package price reduced?

Recommended Posts

Just gone on my cruise planner and the price for the deluxe drinks package is $49.99. I’m pretty sure it was $55 yesterday. That’s a saving of $130 for hubby and me on our 13 night cruise if I’m right

You might want to mention the ship and sailing date, because these sales don't apply to all sailings, and some of your cruise mates might be able to take advantage of a price drop.

The price has bounced up and down for my cruise also. It is back down to the lower rate that you mentioned. Voom is also down. Adventure, March 3rd.

I (think that I) have never seen a deluxe beverage package price that was NOT a whole number.

Seeing a similar reduction on our cruise for mid-March on the Grandeur. $39/day (pre-gratuity). This is the lowest it has been since booking the cruise a few months ago.

The price changes for no rhyme or reason...Don’t buy it just because RCCL says it on sale! Monitor RCCL’s false advertisement and know the basic price...Don’t pay a dime more.

Cheapest I've seen is $41 per day (pre gratuity) for my Adventure in May. Black Friday sale. It's been $42 a few times, but I haven't seen it at $41 since November.

I have not seen the $39 price that low before. Thanks for sharing. We will be on the Grandeur again later this year. Sure hope it is offered at that price for our cruise.

Thanks, that's the lowest I've seen reported recently. I saw someone report $38 once, but that was many months ago.

Daily rate. That's what we are comparing.

What is your daily rate?

Are you certain that $39 incudes the gratuity? That would be $33 before gratuity, which is the lowest price I've seen.

If you've already booked, go look. The site says it applies to select sailings through September 30, 2018.

Ditto this. Grabbed it at $41 for our November 18 Adventure Cruise during the BOGOHO Black Friday deal. Today it’s at $45.

Just got the price reduction on our Explorer cruise for this summer.

Also got a reduction on our 2 booked excursions.

Glad we check prices,

Safe travels.

7 days with the 18 percent gratuity it's $92 dollars for 2 people per day. Total cost was 644 for the week for 2 people, $37 per person w/out gratuity.

For our upcoming cruise... it is $1776.24 CAD (including the gratuities) for 14 nts for the two of us. That converts to $1414 US... divided by 14 is $101US... which means it is $50.50US per night for each of us, including the gratuities.

So about $41US before gratuities.

I think your math is a little off. $39 a day X 7 days = $273. $273 + 18% = $322.14. So, while your total of $644 for 2 people is correct, your daily price of $37 is wrong. The daily price is $39 per person + the 18% gratuity.

Ok, so I was off a little. Thanks for the correction. Still, a good deal at that cost.

For my Oasis sailing on April 22, I had purchased it for me & my DH when it was $48 each + gratuities. I had applied my $300 OBC towards the purchase. It is now being offered at $45 each + gratuities, so it would be a total of almost $50 less now. I know that it not a lot of money, but I could put that towards an excursion ;-) Question: If I cancel & re-purchase it, will I get my $300 OBC back & re-applied towards the new package? Just want to make sure I'm not making a mistake for a mere $50! Thanks!

I purchased the deluxe beverage package when it was priced at $47 a person. Now that I’ve purchased it I cannot seem to find a way to check the price for a price drop. The website keeps wanting me to login. And since I’ve already purchased it it has disappeared from my options. How was everybody aware of price drops? They fluctuate all the time and I don’t feel like calling and asking every day. But the drop of several dollars can make a difference overall.

No need to call, just check in your cruise planner. And to be honest, you will have to check occasionally to find the best deal.

However, I will say that in 2018, I have seen no reports of anyone paying less than $45pp (plus 18%) for an OASIS class sailing. The smaller ships seem to be cheaper.

It all varies from sailing to sailing. I've paid as high as $55pp (plus 18%) buying in advance through cruise planner.

Since you are on the Brilliance, it may go lower. (if your cruise does not include either Christmas or New Year's Eve)

It should NOT have disappeared from your Cruise Planner. You should still be able to see the current pricing.

Log on and look at your Cruise Planner. Let us know if you can't do that.

You should also join your cruise's Roll Call. If you are really unable to see, someone else could look for you.
