What is with the huge price increase?  It was $90 something + gratuity last week.

 

I paid $70+ gratuity for the Premium alcohol package on my December Reflection cruise and my September Solstice Cruise.  

 

Are you guys seeing these prices for your cruises?

You should have booked an "all included" fare. They average out to about $50-60 a day and include drinks, WIFI and tips. No need to complain about the cost of the package when you could have had it plus more for significantly less.

Well... I got a free veranda from the BCC.

 

I am not complaining.   I am just surprised by the huge 50% increase.

I was seeing $50 - 60 before the price increase.  In checking prices for our current bookings the AI has increased to $75 - 85.  Still a better price if ones consider that gratuities and wi-fi are included.

The "All Included" pricing is all over the map right now. Just priced a few cruises out and I saw a price differences of between $387 on Solstice to $597 on Apex for 7 day cruises. This was on X's website...I am going to see what the differences are on a few online TA's I use. Either way, when you subtract automatic gratuities from both, it equates to $37.80- $67.78 a day for drinks and WIFI, a MUCH better deal.

Yes, I always do the math for AI on any cruise line...you gotta be careful sometimes...(actually all the time come to think of it...)

There is no way I can drink $100+ a day in alcohol, juice, soda, coffee and water. When the All In price calculates out to less than $50 a day for drinks and WIFI, I will buy it.

$90 ("It was $90 something + gratuity last week.") to $109---20%.

OK.  But I paid $70 in September Solstice and December Reflection cruises.

 

And you said $3 per day!  Your math was way off.  It was more like a $17 increase in one day and $39 in one month.  I could not even add the beverage package to my February cruise until a week or so ago.  It showed as unavailable for purchase in mid-December.
