Beverage Package - please help me do the math!

Recommended Posts

We will be on the Celebrity Summit in a CS in December.  It will be me, my husband and 11-year old son.  My husband and I have the premium beverage package included as perks, but my son has no beverage package as of yet and I'm trying to decide if it's worth adding one.  At most, he will have one soda, one hot chocolate and one non-alcoholic frozen drink a day.  When we dined in Luminae and the specialty restaurants last year, they never charged us for his water (we would all share bottles) or any sodas he would order, but I don't know if this is typical or if the staff was just being generous?  I'm assuming if he sticks with one soda, one hot chocolate and one frozen drink per day, adding the package isn't worth it, but maybe I'm missing something?  Thank you for your help!

Bervage packages when evaluted in real time/quantity of drinks per day rarely ever break even for the guest....your math is probably telling you that already.

Watch for sales. We got a BOGO on our last two cruises, currently it’s running at 25% off last time I checked

I am working similar math for my two kids in July right now.  I looked very briefly at the current sale- seemed like it didn’t apply to non-alcoholic packages.

 

Only real advantage I am seeing is not having the kids need to worry about money if they are involved in a very rare transaction without us.  That just seems improbable or so infrequent as to not be worth it.

Thank you all so much!  I'll take a look to see if any discounts might apply.  If I think one would put us at the break even point, I may just do it so we don't have to think about it.  Thanks!

I think that you will have the same experience in Luminae of not being charged for the water, hot chocolate or a soda. 

 

I wouldnt buy the package & when you are the ship if you are being charged do the math then and if it would save money buy the package then.
