Fee for drink package

Recommended Posts

My wife and I were looking to purchase the refreshment beverage package, right now $18.00 per person, for our seven day cruise. The total came to almost $300.00, with a $45.00 service fee. Is this to cover tips or is this another service fee for the cruise line?

There is an 18% gratuity added on beverage packages.

 

If your drinks onboard stay under the package limit, you won't have to pay any more gratuity.

Yes, with the tips that is right.

7 x 18 = 126

 

2 x 126 = 252

 

252 x .18 = 45.36

 

252 + 45 = $297

Thank you to all who responded. We knew how to do the math, we did not know gratuities were added. That is why we asked the question.

The deluxe alcohol drink package usually covers drinks costing $12 or $13. If your drink costs more than that, you will pay the difference plus 18% gratuity.;)

Is there a price limit on drinks for the Refreshment Package? I didn't realise.

No price limit, just restrictions, like no smoothies with protein powder.
