The price of the Deluxe Beverage Package just got another notch

Recommended Posts

On my May 2019 10 day sailing it has been $60 per day since May 2018.

 

Today it's $62. I hope it's because they want to do a 'Sale' in a couple of days.

Prices are definitely going up at some point for at least some ships/sailings in early 2019. You see it in the soda and refreshment package costs as well.

My March 2019 sailing on Symphony had the DBP at $60 for months. Now it is up to $63, but of course it’s still listed as the same 10% discount. So they are definitely raising their planned onboard prices for some ships.

Ship?

 

Explorer OTS, out of Southampton, 14th May 2019, 10 night Canary Islands.

 

If the price doesn't go down, I'll just pay as I go. I'm not a heavy drinker.

The Deluxe Drink Package on my cruise on Independence next September went up in price today. It had been £47.40 and is now £48.98. I also hope that they have increased it to bring it down in a "sale".

Going on Anthem April 20, 2019. We bought the deluxe beverage package last week for $44 per adult per day. It indicated this was a 20% savings. Just checked and it’s up to $52 per adult per day, and it still says that price is a 20% savings. I’m so glad we bought it when we did!

For my Allure Nov. 2019 cruise, the DBP went from $50 to $52 a day. I get the sense that no matter ship or time of year, prices went up $2-$3 USD per day across the board.

Same thing on my Brilliance 12 day Baltic next August. Now at $65.50 CAN. :eek::loudcry::mad:

$1,854.96 Total CAN

 

If we don't get a really descent sale on the DBP before then, I'm going to have to learn to like Tap water.

7 days on Adventure in Feb 2019. When i booked in June, $45 pp. Shortly after went to $48. Early Sept $45. Purchased! Today it's $50 with a banner stating 20% off ONBOARD prices. What a sale!!! :confused: I will keep watching it but $45 is probably the best price I'll see!

My Symphony 4/13/19 cruise went up from 53 to 56$...refreshment and soda stayed the same (26/9.95)..

 

BUT - VOOM Surf/Stream went down to $11.99 and the coffee card showed up ($36 after taxes)...so overall I think that was a win for me!

The two I have booked that I had not bought a package for went up today as well :( Booo! $59 (supposedly 10%off) on Empress to Cuba $50. What I did notice if that the combo internet package made up for the difference? Liberty next month is on sale for $45 20%0ff, was $42 last week but we got it a while ago on a sale for $41 :)

Yikes! That is a lot! Ours is pricing at $82.53 a day pp (insanity!) but only a 7 day cruise. But not port intensive and it’s March break. So probably won’t be much in the way if discounts.

Same for our Allure 04/14/19 cruise. Was $53 for beverage package and now jumped up to $56. However surf/stream went down and saved $100 for the week for the 4 device package.

Our Canadian Anthem cruise next week has fluctuated between $39 and $45 plus tips. Wonder if it depends on how many they have sold and their historic data for sales on this itinerary?

Son of a gun. Saw this post and quickly checked for my next cruise. A 12 night in april 2019. And dang it. It went up $2, and they had the nerve to put a 20%banner across that. It went up from $48 to $50.

 

I think i will do what another poster is gonna try. Put some money aside each week and wing it. Hubby can easily drink the $50 a day, but not me. So it might work out not to buy package

I’m fairly sure that I am going to wing it too and not buy a beverage package .. $56 a day is more than I can drink for 7 days...I might hit it on a day or two, but never all 7...our last cruise it went down to $39 which was totally worth it for the bottled water alone, but that’s it.

 

The coffee card will help me out..and we are driving to port so I can pick up 2 bottles of wine to bring with me as well (with the package we don’t bother). If the 10 drink punch card shows up at a good value towards the end of the week - even better!

 

The trick will be giving myself permission to spend money on board without the package...I tend to be somewhat frugal in those moments and I will need to remember that this IS vacation and I do have funds allocated for this - so if I want a latte or a smoothie or a pina colada or mambo taxi I can just buy it!

Yes, have to give myself permission to buy drink. But have $500 in onboard credit from ta. So even if we spend another $500. Still cheaper that way. And i will try to bring a case of water.
