Reservation on Elation - new to NCL - question about drink packages

Recommended Posts

Hi we are just back from Carnival Breeze and eager to book another cruise. Thinking Norwegian Elation. Looks amazing. I was doing my due diligence and it appears that if my husband and I get the drink package, my sons must get the soda package. Is that correct? 

 

We have a 24 hour hold on a family mini-suite on Elation. It comes with the free beverage package which we will upgrade to include water and specialty coffees. What I noticed is that it appears my sons (ages 5 and eight) must get the soda package. 

 

My sons are not allowed to drink soda. Is this true and I read it correctly? And it doesn't include bottled water, correct? So I am buying them a soda package for drinks that they will absolutely never, ever drink? 

 

I just want to make sure I understand and I KNOW you all know. 

 

TIA!

Firstly there is no Norwegian Elation. Did you mean Encore?

 

Anyway, if you get the beverage package included as an offer then there is no requirement to get packages for others. You don’t need to buy the soda packages.

Norwegian doesn’t have a ship called Elation, but on the ships they do have if passengers 1 and 2 receive the bev package as a perk the others in the cabin don’t have to purchase a package, only if it is purchased outright

edit apparently Keith types faster than I

Yes, Escape. Sorry. Can I claim post-vacation fog?  That is good news.

Well on the Escape be sure to use your beverage package at the District Brewhouse (if you like craft beer)

Will do. And are the specialty restaurants amazing to match their descriptions online? First NCL so we are getting pumped.

Yes, it’s a great ship. Probably my favourite of the NCL larger ships.
