Drink packages

Recommended Posts

Does every person in the room have to purchase a drink package, even if its non-alcoholic?

What happens if it's one adult, one child in the room?

Every adult in a room has to buy it, for alcohol packages.

 

For the Quench package (soft drinks and non-alcoholic beverages) I believe everyone in the room has to buy it.

Or couldn’t you just buy a beverage card for the amount you want?  I believe if you buy it ahead of time your name is on it.  Then you can use it for anything you want.

 

do you save a lot by buying a package?

Can the soda card be used for cans? Or is it fountain pop only?

 

If I buy a drink card for the adult, can i get the soda package for the child?

 

Thanks!

I bought a soda card (unlimited) and my adult room mate did not.  Did this about a month ago.

Depends on your typical beverage consumption when you are in vacation mode.   (much different than home mode when you have to go to work the next day, or worry about driving home from a restaurant).   The current SBP is $44.95 per day plus 15% SC, or $51.70 per day if you buy it online before your cruise.  That gets you 15 drinks per day prices at $11 or less, MENU PRICE.   Don't worry about the 15% SC with the package, it is already paid.  The 15 drink per day limit is only for alcoholic drinks,  sodas, bottled water and non-alcoholic specialty coffees are unlimited.  The average drink price on HAL ships is $8.95 plus 15%, or $10.30 per drink if you don't have the package.  Divide $51.70 by $10.30 and you get about 5 drinks.   After 5 drinks, you are drinking free.   It all depends on what you think you will consume per day.   Also, a very port intensive cruise will keep you off the ship most of the day, so your drink count will be lower.  On cruise with lots of sea days, the reverse is true.   Some people make out like bandits with the SBP, others say it doesn't work for them because they only have 1 or 2 glasses of wine at dinner.
