Difference between the 2 beverage packages ??

Recommended Posts

Hello we are new to the beverage packages on Royal I see they offer 2 packages can someone please explain the differences? Would anyone have the menu showing what comes with each package? What is the cost of each?

Thank you for your help :)

There are three packages:

The soda package includes sodas


The refreshment package includes sodas and other non-alcoholic drinks (mocktails/virgin cocktails, bottled water, specialty coffee, etc)

The deluxe package includes all of the above and alcohol up to $12/$13 per serving (most glasses of wine, cocktails, beers, and shots, more expensive wine and top shelf liquors you have to pay the difference) If one person in a cabin gets the deluxe, all adults in the cabin must get it. You can also call in to Royal and get special permission to substitute a refreshment package for people who don't drink alcohol.


Pricing varies by sailing but is typically around $9 per night per person for the soda, $20-$30 per night per person for the refreshment, and $42-$65 per night per person for the deluxe. Add an 18% gratuity for the final price.

Note that none of the packages include soda in a can - all are fountain soda unless the gun isn't working.  Canned soda is extra.  You will get a plastic soda cup with any package that must be used for the Coke Freesyle machines.  At a bar/dining room you can get soda in a glass.  Freestyle machines are on most RCI ships these days.
