Nieuw Statendam/SBP

Recommended Posts

We are currently on the NS and having a wonderful time.  We have been advised by a couple of beverage staff that the 1L bottles of spring water are not included in the SBP.  The cost is well below the $11 limit.  Prior to revising our reservation to include the SBP our analysis included our spring water consumption.  During our previous cruises the large bottles of Evian were included in the SBP.  Where did I miss this information?  I plan to stop by Guest Services and inquire.

The wording in various places has had the "bottled waters 500ml or under" line in it for a bit but onboard experience sometimes varies. I know on our last cruise for the first couple days they were handing out the big glass bottles of the still water to us beverage package people and then we were told "No, those aren't included" No idea what the mix up was. 

But here is the wording from the HAL site faq. It's under Quench package but the Signature and Elite package are essentially the Quench package plus alcoholic drinks according to the description they are using now. 



Try one of our drink packages which offer great value and a convenient way to enhance your cruise experience.

The bottled water question has been debated a ton here, but it seems the latest (and it applied to our cruise last June) is that the bottled water is not Evian...it is smaller bottles.
