New Drinks Package - Premium +

Recommended Posts

If they actually give you that many bottles of booze, I'd be taking a lot of it home with me!

That would match our planner.  I upgraded 1 of our perk classics during the last sale.  When looking at the planner today i was only given the option to upgrade to premium, but not premium plus.

 

   ..this is the only thing showing in my cruise planner for our November cruise...

Yep, I just found that as well but it's not listed/shown with the other packages.  I found it in a drop down menu under Specialty Dining/Drinks packages.  No picture or description.

Am wondering...if the premium + is cheaper than the premium (which I already have), will they pay me to upgrade? 😁😀

For my upcoming Eclipse cruise we have the premium package also because we have 4 perks. But for our Jan 2021 Edge cruise we only have classic (2 perks) and the premium plus doesn't show up at all as an option.  The mystery continues..........

On those 2 bottles of wine....remember the policy is that you can't share drinks you get on a package 🙂  I just know that someone on some ship will try to enforce that policy.....

i can see it at £54.68 on my planner, the normal premium is £55.89 and classic £47.49. I don;t have a drinks package (as booked a very cheap inside room). Be interesting to see whats in it, as if its bottles of wine, my partner can order it. I assume though they don't expect any one adult to drink 2 bottles a day PLUS the other drinks? as that would seem a bit excessive.

 

I would doubt that one person can order the package and not the other, Usually, both people in one stateroom must order an alcoholic package.

We have bought the Premium package for an upcoming cruise in Sept on Edge, and can also see this Premium plus without description in my planner. I have tried to add the Premium plus, and it shows my basket value to be £1458, so guess it is an addition to the Premium package.

Celebrity does not require that all adults in a cabin to order a beverage package.  If you are purchasing a beverage package or up grade your traveling companion does not have to purchase also.  However is tge beverage package is a perk when booking then both must have the same perk.

So we are booked on a B2B on the Edge in January 2020. We have the classic as a perk and were going to upgrade for the second leg. I can’t find the mysterious “premium +” in my cruise planner. So I called celebrity... they had no idea what I was talking about?!?  

 

Wondering if if better luck if I call captains club? Does anyone have the number? Where in cruise planner should this show up... I checked the specialty dining drop down...but using an iPad so not sure if it makes a difference

definatly you can buy the package for 1 person and not the other. Or buy different levels of package (one with drinks and one say soft drink). You just can't share the drinks.

Lol, ok, I saw this new package also !

So, the Premium Package is priced at $69.00 and the Premium Plus is priced at $67.50.

Does anyone know what the difference is ?

I as well as others might want too know also, lol.

Thanx

I'm glad I was able to finish 3rd. grade, I hope I am correct the price difference is $1.50.

🍻 (Beer is not from the Premium Plus package but local beer garden.)

I don't think this will be available to upgrade if you chose a drink pkg. as a perk with your booking. Read the part in bold letters in additional term & conditions.

I have been told by both the CaptainsClub and the on-line Customer Service that if you received a beverage package as a perk you can not upgrade to the Premium + you can only upgrade to the Premium  

This explains why those who have the Classic as a perk and it shows in their CP do not see the Premium+as a option.  Our Classic package wasn’t showing in our CP so the Premium + showed but once the rep applied the Classic perk the Premium + option disappeared.

 

Premium+ is only available for purchase at the $67.50+ gratuity.

I did a chat with a Celebrity rep last evening.  This is the information he sent me.

great BuddyR.  so it's $75 Per Person Per Day+20%= $90 per day. you get 2 bottles of (who knows what) wine once during the cruise as well as $50 in casino free play (whatever that is) once per cruise and some (undefined) wine tasting once per cruise.

 

No clue what 1 mini bar included means......can you drink the whole bar content or is that one item from the mini bar or ????

 

I'd also comment that their marketing department, once again, shines......this offer started on August 9th, there's no description or even highlight headlines on the web site as of the 11th, the folks you call have conflicting information, if they have any at all....sounds like some are just guessing....the others probably have just this one sheet.  

 

Fortunately, the ships are run independently of HQ...the only time they get fouled up is when HQ issues an edict of some sort like play the music loud.

Still showing at $67.50 + gratuity in the cruise planner so it must be like the internet - 10% off if you purchase pre-sailing.

I was told by the Captain’s Club representative I spoke to that I could not upgrade my classic beverage package to the premium plus since it was an included perk on my reservation.

 The terms & conditions exclude upgrading from a promotional beverage package.

Now I'm curious enough to end up calling Captain's Club.  We have the classic package but it doesn't show up in our cruise planner, and the Premium Plus package appears as an option.  We want to upgrade to Premium anyway.

Once there is more information this might work for us. There are 3 of us in the cabin and only 2 will get the classic drink package as a perk. Might be worth it for the other one is get this.

Well, I wouldn't consider my OBC and Classic Bev package a perk...I did pay for it...the cruise would have been lower if I didn't...

@CanuckCruizer I called Captains Club today to doublecheck that I had actually received the premium plus package. Nope. It was just an upgrade to premium. She reiterated that this package will not be available for upgrades from promotional offers, only as a standalone purchase...
