Cruise 101: One Package. One Price. Your Budget.

Kick back and relax with unlimited drinks.
by 421

Beverage packages don’t just offer savings: they offer peace of mind, too—and isn’t that what vacationing is all about? By paying one price up front, instead of shelling out cash (virtually speaking) each time you, your friends, or one of your kids want something to drink, you have the freedom to refill and relax whenever. Now that you’ve got your cruise booked and the flight to go with it, take a look at the drink packages Royal Caribbean offers; you’re sure to find one that perfectly suits your preferences.

Non-alcoholic packages

For non-alcoholic beverages, the Refreshment Package is offered on a per guest, per day basis, and includes coffee, tea, sparkling or still bottled water, fresh-squeezed juices, non-alcoholic cocktails, fountain soda and a complimentary Coca-Cola® souvenir cup. Onboard, bottled water can start at $3.25, and this package is worth it if you plan on enjoying a few of those throughout your cruise—plus a coffee and OJ each morning.

If your kids love soda, they’ll love you when you get them the Classic Soda Package, which also is offered on a per guest, per day basis for unlimited soft drinks, and a complimentary Coca-Cola® souvenir cup, too. Soda onboard typically is $2 per can, which can add up quickly if you have a few throughout the day. Finally, if you’re a fiend for bottled water, the Evian Bottled Water Package will keep you hydrated for the entire cruise.

Alcoholic packages

On the other hand, there are alcohol-inclusive packages, too. The Deluxe Beverage Package includes unlimited cocktails, beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, premium coffee and tea, bottled water—and a 40 percent discount on bottles of wine under $100, and 20 percent off bottles above $100.
