One thing I must admit. I tend to drink more while cruising. Maybe it’s because on a ship, my movements are limited or because there are bars everywhere or because I don’t have to drive anywhere or just because cruises are vacations and a place to let go. Whatever the reason, you can drop some serious cash on alcohol, if you’re not careful.
We were lucky enough to get the Ultimate Beverage Package for free as part of a booking promotion. YAY! I think that also played a role in my drinking outlook…
What is the NCL Ultimate Beverage Package?
The NCL Ultimate Beverage Package provides a “enjoy a wide selection of soft drinks, beers, spirits, cocktails, wines by the glass and bottled or draft beer up to and including $15 USD during your entire cruise.”. If you purchase a beverage over
$11 $15, you will receive an $11 $15 discount and be charged the difference to your account.
The package is available to guests 21 and older and must be purchased by each adult in the stateroom or on staterooms with the same credit card on file. Additionally, they are now requiring “individuals under the age of 21 will be required to purchase the Soda Program.”
– Online pre-cruise purchase price:
– On board purchase price:
18% 20% gratuity and beverage service charge will be added at checkout.
*UPDATE – the prices have increased. I’ll update the new on board purchase price once we sail in April 2018.
The package excludes items ordered through room service.
