Drink Codes

Recommended Posts

Hi again,

 

Can someone please tell what the following codes mean? We have booked 2 soft drinks packages and 1 water package..cause we do not drink alcohol and we are only interested in water and soft drinks. We are not interested in any other beverage packages. Are these their codes please? Thanks in advance.

 

 8951-BKALCH-THIRST

 8951-BKALCH-THIRST

 8951-BKEUWP-THIRST

Not sure but the code will be on your cruise card. 

 

The abbreviation you show does look like the non alcoholic package. 

 

The 8951 is obviously your cabin number

Thanks... But we did not order the Non Alcoholic package :( 

 

8951 is not our cabin number... it is 10027

Ah okay in your paperwork under beverage package there should be a code which begins with a number then 2 letters then 3 numbers 

 

so for ours on the Seaside in the states it is 534NS179 yours should show something like that with the 534 part changed to what your package is and that number will be on your cruise cards

This is only a guess, but I wonder if it is confirming that you get water with your meals.....not every type of booking does.

I really cannot find this code anywhere on the ticket, I only have the following:

I really dont think so, we are Europeans who will be sailing in the Mediterranean and I dont think we have that privilege 😞

CH is for CHILD  They obviously have a soft drinks package as they are not allowed alcohol 

WP is for WATER PACKAGE, which is not available to all guests, eg UK, and is aimed at giving USA guests water at meal times.

I'm sorry if this sounds foolish -- but is water not normally served onboard at meals? Or is this some special kind of water? (I'm looking at booking our first European cruise for 2020 and this is new info I had not considered. I like a little wine or tea or coffee, but mostly water with meals.) TIA.

Thanks..that clarifies things... I had thought the "ALCH" in  BKALCH stood for something alcoholic 😛

water is served with meals in Europe but is usually bottled, and at a cost,

in order to fit the US market , where guests expect Tap water at no cost, MSC used to give US guests vouchers for 1 bottle of bottled water per meal,. Various incarnations of this policy have ensued and it is sill an area of much debate and differing  policies dependent on which region you have your booking with.
