Will room service deliver drinks when you have the beverage package? TIA.

Yes, but charge you for them. Ie you can still order them, but your package doesn’t cover them.

This one reason do not like the beverage package.... we often get a bottle of wine and enjoy a port day lunch an the balcony... very relaxing.... also buy wine by the bottle at dinner.....

 

By doing wine by the glass ( ie with beverage package )  it can mean waiting a long time between drinks  ....lol

 

It is each to his own on this..... but remember the beverage package is there for Princess to make money...... not for you to get a good deal......

 

Cheers and to one day go on a cruise... Don

Is there a limit of how many alcohol drinks you can have in a day?

no - but the "package" only covers 15 per "Princess Day" which starts and ends at 6 am ( unless that changed )

 

Still the same. 15 alcoholic drinks per day -- 6 AM to 6 AM.  Most folks will never get anywhere near that number so it's mostly a moot point.

I can't even drink 15 glasses of water a day! I can't imagine drinking 15 alcohol drinks in a day. And it's a good thing because after 2 it's time for me to stop. lol. 

remember, it's "cruise ship pours" - not at home pours 🥃

 

sea daze ... morning eye opener(s), beer(s) by the pool, wine time at Vines, nightcaps at Crooners

You are still able to bring a bottle each onboard without corkage to enjoy in your cabin.  Now, I don't know if this is standard throughout the ships in the fleet but, our neighbor was able to go to Vines and get a bottle delivered to the dining room for 4 or 5 drinks against her package.  I won't say what ship because I don't want to get anybody in trouble in case that was a no no.

I would say a no no..... But good on them....... a bit of common sense ...

Having said that thing are different from ship to ship... on our last cruise 26 nights    we brought a bottle of two at quite a few ports.... there was no table and nobody stopped us once..... but we didn't take it to the MDR... save us a bit as well...

 

Cheers Don

But doesn’t really matter as you only need to drink 6-8 to break even and can’t imagine many could go 15+ a day.

But if you wouldn’t have 6-8 a day if paying individually you aren’t benefiting.

The 6 to 8 alcoholic drinks/day to break even is based on the full price of the package. When you receive the package as part of the plus promo package or some other promo the number of drinks/day is lower, maybe as low as two or three alcoholic drinks/day.

I'd never pay "full price" for the package as it's just not worth the cost to us. However, I'll pay for it with Princess Plus. The reduced price makes it worthwhile to us. Normally we would have at least one coffee card and maybe one each. No need with the package and I can get a shot of Jameson (sometimes) in my morning Vanilla Latte or add an extra shot of espresso if I'm feeling like it. I can have my evening San Pellegrino and we can enjoy a nice glass of wine in Vines before dinner. The ease and freedom of the package is great. Given that I tend to drink the more expensive drinks ($11.25 or so with the gratuity) it doesn't take much to come out "even" with the reduced price package and there is no need to "hold down" expenses.

You can buy bottles of wine on the plan and get a 25% discount off the menu price. This does not count against the 15 drink limit. This should have quoted the message about ordering from Vines. Not Thrak’s quote

We did buy one at dinner because they had the wine we like which is no longer available in Vines. Normally we take a couple of bottles of wine with us for in the cabin or whatever but it was good finding the wine we wanted in MDR. It's annoying that we could get it there and that it was also voted the most liked at the freebie wine tasting but it's no longer in Vines. Must be to plebeian for the sommelier or whomever chooses the wines for the fleet.
