Beverage Packages

Recommended Posts

New to HAL and sailing first cruise, on the Nieuw Amsterdam, this summer.  I'm curious about the beverage packages (Elite and Signature), and believe I've read somewhere that the wine selections are in the process of being changed.  Is there any way to know, with certainty, what wines will be offered in each package? Also, we have a teenager traveling with us ... any feedback on whether the beverage card, or an unlimited soft drink package is a better value?  Thank you!

I too have read that the wine offerings are in the process of being changed. They were still the old list when we were on NA in February. We had the Elite pkg and loved it. Was well worth the extra almost $ 12 a day.

 

Our 17yo loved the Quench Drink Pkg. Sodas, bottled water, special coffee, mocktails.. he had them all and easily got enough to pay for the package. He was on his own or with the teen group for most of the cruise. We saw him mainly in the am and at dinner. It was nice he could just get whatever whenever and no worries. He loved the variety.

Thanks very much for your feedback! I wasn't aware that mocktails were a part of the Quench package; my daughter will be all over that, lol! I'm also happy to hear your son was so immersed with the teen club, and hope my daughter is equally as happy (although I'm also fine with her being with us, too!).  Thanks again!
