What's Included in Celebrity Cruises Drink Packages?
This is always the question! So, is it worth it to purchase a drink package on Celebrity Cruises? I will break it all down to help you decide. The first thing to look at is how much you drink. Are you the type of person who has one glass of wine at dinner? Or do you begin the day with a mimosa, then a piña colada by the pool, a cocktail before dinner, and wine with your meal?
As a guide, I typically recommend if you think you will purchase 4 drinks or more a day (this includes bottled water, fresh squeezed orange juice, specialty coffee, cocktails, wines by the glass (bottles are not included), a dessert drink or more), then a beverage package would probably be the best for you. For me, I love the convenience of having a beverage package. It's SO convenient not to sign a receipt each time you order a cocktail, or when purchasing a bottle of water before exiting the ship for an excursion. I also enjoy being able to stop by different bars and trying their specialties. Use your beverage package anywhere on the ship...from the dining rooms, to the lounges, poolside bars, Cafe al Bacio, even in the theater and casino.
Next question: Are you brand conscious? When you order a piña colada by the pool, are you happy with whatever rum the bartender uses, or do you request a top shelf brand? See below for a listing of the brands included in each type of beverage package. This information is directly from Celebrity Cruises website. If you are ready to purchase, click on Celebrity Cruises Beverages Packages.
Virtual Tip: If purchasing a drink package, it's per person, not per cabin. Additionally, when having a drink, you are only allowed one at a time. For example, you can't go up to a bar and ask for 3 bottles of water.
See below for what brand is included in which package. There are three main groups of beverage packages:
- Standard Beverage Package
- Classic Beverage Package (Non-Alcoholic and Alcoholic versions)
- Premium Beverage Package (Non-Alcoholic and Alcoholic versions)
Are you just a bottled water drinker or a soda drinker? There is even a package for that! Scroll all the way to end of page for selections and pricing.
