Drinks Package?

Recommended Posts

I think it depends on how much you drink (or think you might drink). Two drinks a day on VV looks like it will be cheaper than the package price per day on other lines (and close to being cheaper than the gratuity on NCL's fake "free" drink package). If you drink more than two drinks per day  then it will probably cost you more on VV.


Two drinks per day? Some people like to have two drinks....at dinner alone! 😬

To make a drink package work on most any cruise line, you have to figure on at least 10 to 13 drinks per day.  Cheap drink packages are around $89/day with the more expensive pushing $130/day.  At $9 - $14/drink you need to be having quite a few drinks to make that work out.

 

I can make the package come close to working if the coffee is included in the package. 4 or 5 coffees per day plus 5 drinks per day and it's sort of worth it.

They do not plan to offer drink packages.  They will offer prepaid drink bonuses - but not a traditional all you can drink package.

If cruise fare became more reasonable, meaning a sale to attract people back, might those savings be enough to attract people to a la carte drinks pricing?
