In Port-Drink Package

Recommended Posts

I wanted to confirm that if we purchase the drink package and we decide not to leave the ship while in Port that we can still get drinks through the drink package.  Also if I bring my own cup like a Yeti can I get my drinks put into that rather than using the ships cups?  For example if I want a rum and coke.

Yes, you can drink on the ship with cheers while in port.  For health and sanitation reasons I suspect drinks are all made in and served with their glassware, but you can then pour into your own.  Cheers!

But you can pour it from the glass into yours. 🙂

So if I were to say get a drink in the bar and pour it into my own glass, can I then walk out of the bar and take it to my room?

You could also just take the drink in their cup to your room.

we never had to do this. the bartender always made the drinks and HE poured them in our cooler cup.

What health and sanitary reasons are you referring to?

Hi

 

...and on the way to your cabin, you could stop at another bar, and get another drink...just in case you finish the first one on the way.🥂

 

have a great cruise

They typically won’t make a drink in your own cup.  Just like they request you pour coffee into their mugs and then pour it into your own, and ask you get a new glass or mug each time you get a new drink and a new plate each time you go to the buffet.

Just so it’s not a surprise, when you get drinks in port you will pay taxes on those drinks. It isn’t much but good to know up front.

Not foreign ports...and to be honest I haven't seen this done on any of my Carnival cruises when docked stateside (embarkation day)....I recall back about 20 years ago I believe this occurred on a NCL cruise.... But ever since we've used Cheers on Carnival or a drink package on another line.... no taxes have been charged to our account

You are not paying attention, you are charged state tax when docked in the U.S.. The Texas and N.Y. law is not about taxes. Those states don't allow Cheers type purchases in their state, so Cheers starts on day 2. When in Miami or any other port, the drinks are free with Cheers, but you will see .80 tax on $10. I throw away my receipts, but I do look at them first.

Nope.... Just looked at my last 2 bills from my Vista cruise in 2017 and Breeze in 2015...zip/nada. Both departed out of Miami

You may also take it to your room in the glass they serve they serve.
