Celebrity Cruises drink packages: Cost, inclusions and what to know before you buy

Melinda Crow

Celebrity Cruises drink packages give you the freedom to enjoy both alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages during your cruise without worrying about the tab. Adding a beverage package to your cruise moves your vacation one step closer to an all-inclusive experience that stops the day-to-day nickel and diming for every soda, bottle of water and glass of wine.

But drink packages can get a bit confusing. Do you save money with a package, or should you stick to ordering and paying for drinks one at a time? Which drink package is part of the "All Included" cabin pricing, and is that option your best bet?

These are just a few of the questions new Celebrity cruisers (and even some veterans of the line) often ask when it comes time to consider buying a drink package for their cruise.

In an effort to simplify choices, Celebrity Cruises offers just three beverage packages, including a Zero-Proof package for nonalcoholic drinks. To help you decide which (if any) package suits your needs and those of your travel companions, I've dug through the details and tested some of the options. Here's what you need to know before you buy.

What's included in a Celebrity drink package?

celebrity cruises drink packages 2022

Celebrity Cruises' three drink packages include the Zero Proof, Classic and Premium drink packages. All of the beverage package options include bottled water (usually served in aluminum bottles to reduce single-use plastics on board), specialty coffees and teas, soft drinks and mocktails.

Your drinks may be ordered from any bar, restaurant or bar server in public areas, such as pools or entertainment venues. The packages are also valid for use on private islands like Labadee and Perfect Day at CocoCay .

With a few exceptions, each package builds on the previous (lower-priced) package. Here is what's included in each Celebrity cruise drink package.

Zero Proof (aka nonalcoholic) drink package

Celebrity offers one package for nonalcoholic beverages. It does not offer separate water-only or soda-only packages as some cruise lines do. Those drinks are included in the Zero Proof package. (You might see this package listed as either Zero Proof or Nonalcoholic on the Celebrity website and app.)

As we said before, all Celebrity drink packages include premium coffees and teas like those served at Cafe al Bacio and mocktails. The Zero Proof package also includes drinks such as Red Bull, Vitamin Water, fresh juices and smoothies at The Spa Cafe and premium waters like San Pellegrino or Evian.

This package is ideal for those who drink few, if any, alcoholic drinks, but need their morning latte or down several glasses of sparkling water or soda daily. Plus, you can enjoy vacation splurges like smoothies or frozen mocktails.

Classic drink package

The Classic drink package includes most of the nonalcoholic drinks available in the Zero Proof package, except the specialty brands like Red Bull and premium waters. You'll get all beer, wine by the glass, spirits, cocktails and liqueurs priced at $10 or less. Additionally, you get a 15% discount off all bottles of wine, which you can enjoy anywhere on board, including in your cabin.

Examples of drinks that are part of the Classic drink package are beers like Sam Adams, Corona, Coors and Alaska Brewing beers on Alaska cruises. Wines will vary depending on the location of your cruise.

Most cocktails are included in the package. They will be made from non-premium brand ingredients. Liqueurs included in the package are those with lower price tags. Think Kahlua, but not Bailey's Irish Cream or Grand Marnier.

You can still order drinks that are over the $10 limit imposed by the package. You'll simply pay the difference between the $10 limit and the cost of the drink. Some cruisers on social media have said they found it necessary on some sailings to say the word "classic" when ordering drinks in order to avoid being served a premium drink and having an upcharge apply.

Celebrity Cruises' Classic package works for most drinkers who plan to consume several drinks each day. It will cover bottled water you can take into port with you to stay hydrated during excursions and sodas for lunch while providing for most of your beer, wine and spirits needs. If you decide you want a different beer or a cocktail with a call liquor, just pay the difference.

Premium drink package

celebrity cruises drink packages 2022

Celebrity's Premium drink package moves the price limit per drink to $17, which covers almost anything you'd drink on board other than higher-priced wines or a few of the pricier spirits. Premium brand waters and Red Bull are available in this package. You'll also have a 20% discount on bottled wine available to use, which can absolutely make a difference in your evening wine selections.

Examples of beverages available in this package are beers like Blue Moon, Guinness and Grolsch. Wines by the glass in the package are a step above those found in the Classic package and include Champagnes. Cocktails are made from premium spirits such as Crown Royal, Grey Goose, Bombay Sapphire and Patron Silver. The list of brandies and liqueurs expands considerably.

Many Celebrity cruisers have found it necessary to order their drinks specifically as "premium" beverages or to order by brand to avoid getting drinks made with the cheapest liquors.

The Premium package is perfect for cruisers who don't want to make money decisions when ordering a drink. If I want a shot of Godiva poured over my late-night ice cream, I don't really want to stop and wonder if it's included in my package.

Drink package fine print

Packages do not include beverages ordered from room service, bought in onboard gift shops or consumed from the minibar in your cabin.

There are no daily limits on how many drinks you can have on a Celebrity Cruises drink package, but you can only order one drink at a time. The exception to that is that you can usually request a bottle of water at the same time you order an alcoholic drink.

The drink packages with alcohol come with a caveat — all passengers of legal drinking age in a cabin must buy the same package. So, if your roomie prefers premium spirits, you must also buy the premium package. Non-drinkers can request an exemption from the alcoholic packages but must purchase the Zero Proof package instead.

What do Celebrity drink packages cost?

celebrity cruises drink packages 2022

Now that you know what you can drink with each package, let's break down the costs.

The cruise line has a stated (pre-tip) price for its drink packages that include alcohol: $89 per person, per day for the Classic package and $109 per person, per day for the Premium package. However, that price fluctuates with demand. You can expect to pay more during holiday sailings and spring break. The flip side is that the cruise line frequently offers special pricing that lowers the cost.

Here are the ranges of what a Celebrity drink package costs. The lowest prices are based on previous sales.

  • Zero Proof drink package: $30 per person, per day ($36 with gratuity)
  • Classic drink package: $35 to $89 per person, per day ($42 to $106.80 with gratuity)
  • Premium drink package: $56 to $129 per person, per day ($67.20 to $154.80 with gratuity)

The gratuity is 20% and is added when you purchase the package. That eliminates any additional tip on individual drink orders unless you want to tip extra.

Now, let's complicate the whole decision-making process by factoring in Celebrity's "All Included" fares .

During the booking process, after you've selected your cabin, you'll be offered an opportunity to upgrade your cruise with an All Included package that adds the Classic drink package and basic Wi-Fi for each guest in the room. It pays to compare the non-upgrade price to the upgrade, then divide the difference by the number of nights and the number of people in the cabin.

I recently found All Included upgrade prices as low as $35 per person, per night, which makes the drink package less than half price and Wi-Fi free. Once you have the Classic package in place through the All-In add-on, you can easily upgrade to the Premium drink package if you prefer.

While the listed upgrade price is $20 per person, per night, I've heard from multiple cruisers that the upgrade is sometimes offered as low as $6.99 per person, per night, making that a bargain as well. Don't forget the 20% gratuity per person, per night, that's tacked onto the price.

The best times to buy a Celebrity drink package

celebrity cruises drink packages 2022

You can buy your drink package as soon as you book your cruise, or you can wait until you are on board. Which is the better plan?

If your cruise is leaving within the next few months, it's probably best to go ahead and lock in the price — unless Black Friday happens to fall between purchase and the start of the cruise. Celebrity Black Friday deals on drink packages have historically been the lowest prices available all year.

The $35 per person, per night upgrade to All Included to get the Classic drink package in my example above was during the Black Friday Kickoff sale, a full two weeks before actual Black Friday.

The Celebrity drink package that fluctuates most in price is the Premium package, so it always pays to buy it pre-cruise. Advance prices are at least 5% lower online or in the cruise line app before embarkation day.

The key to getting the best deal, either through the All Included package or buying the drink package pre-cruise, is to do the math to break down the cost per person, per night. That way, you're always comparing apples to apples, despite BOGO deals or percentages off.

Is a Celebrity drink package worth it?

celebrity cruises drink packages 2022

It's time to get down to whether you are saving money with these packages or whether that even matters to you. Let's look at each package again to see how much you need to consume to break even.

This one is pretty easy to break even on. Specialty coffees average around $6 but can run as much as $10 each. Sodas are $3; water is $3-$5, depending on the brand; mocktails and smoothies are $9. One coffee to start your day, a smoothie or fresh juice with breakfast, two bottles of water for hydration, a soda with lunch, a mocktail by the pool, and another soda during the evening, and you're up to $40 per day.

Daily consumption on this package might start out similar to the sample list on the Zero Proof package: specialty coffee each morning, bottled water and soda throughout the day and maybe a smoothie. But then you'd need to drink six or more cocktails (which start at $9), beers ($6.50 to $10) or glasses of wine ($8-10) to hit the $89 base price of this package.

At the regular price, you'd either need to drink a lot of alcohol every day to break even, or really lean into the nonalcoholic beverages if you can't handle that much liquor daily. Obviously, if you can find a discounted package, you'll break even more easily. For Celebrity's Classic package to make sense, you should either be someone who enjoys a large number of drinks or who cares less about breaking even and more about creating a low-stress, more inclusive cruise experience.

The most expensive package is clearly for those who prefer premium brands in their drinks. If you're a top-shelf drinker, you won't have much difficulty consuming enough to make this package a value proposition.

This package is included with suites in The Retreat and is an easy upgrade for those who choose the All-In fares. In talking to cruisers who prefer this package, I found that many of them choose it simply to enjoy Celebrity's popular Martini Bar, which has a drink menu with almost all drinks over the $10 limit imposed by the Classic package.

As you consider which package works best for your drinking habits, be sure to factor in the ports and the itinerary as a whole. Sea days tend to be higher drink consumption days, so a seven-night cruise with two sea days may bump up your needs a bit. Stops at private islands may mean even higher consumption because you're away from the air-conditioning for much of the day. Cruises in warm weather areas like the Caribbean will increase your thirst overall.

Itineraries that might reduce consumption would be cool climate cruises and port-intensive European cruises, where you might find yourself drinking local beverages more often than not. In those cases, your onboard drinking could drop to levels below the point at which packages are cost-effective unless you get a bargain price.

Other factors to consider before you buy a Celebrity drink package

celebrity cruises drink packages 2022

A couple of other factors could influence your drink needs and decision to buy a drink package or not.

The first is to remember that Celebrity does offer free beverage options. The tap water on board is drinkable; bring your own refillable bottle, and you won't need to purchase bottles of water. The buffet area and all restaurants offer free drip coffee, iced tea, hot tea, hot cocoa, milk, lemonade and punch.

Plus, each cruiser is allowed to bring up to 12 cans of nonalcoholic drinks on board on embarkation day. You can also bring a can or two back from ports with you. Your cabin attendant can keep you stocked with ice and glassware in your cabin.

You can also bring one bottle of wine per person on board on embarkation day. There is a corkage fee for opening it in a restaurant, but none if you open it and keep it in your cabin.

If you're happy with these free options, supplemented by a couple of extra-fee drinks per day, you might save more by purchasing drinks a la carte versus splurging on a drink package.

You should also look at your loyalty status in Celebrity's Captain's Club . Starting with their second cruise, all members get one complimentary specialty coffee per cruise when dining in a specialty restaurant. So don't count that coffee in your decision.

All members also get a discount on bottles of wine. The discount starts at 10% for the newest members, then goes to 15% for Select members and 20% for Elite and up. That pretty much nullifies the benefit included in the packages for everyone with status.

The good news, though, is that all members get a discount on the pre-cruise purchase of any drink package — 10% for the bottom two tiers, 15% for Elite members and 20% for Elite Plus. Zenith members are entitled to complimentary drink packages. Captain's Club members can also access discounts on pre-cruise purchases of drink package upgrades for those who opt for the All Included fares.

Even better news is that Elite members and up drink free at most bars between 5 and 7 p.m., the official Captain's Club cocktail hour. You aren't limited to sitting at one bar, but you are limited to the choices on a special menu. It's possible to grab a glass of wine or a cocktail on your way to dinner and another on your way to a show.

The final factor might be a big one for some people. Celebrity supplies free drinks (alcoholic and non) for anyone actively playing in the casino . The caveats are that you can't get these free drinks from the bar, and catching a server in a busy casino can be challenging.

The advice I got from serious casino players is to tip the server a buck or two with every drink they bring to keep the service and the drinks coming all cruise. If you plan to spend hours in the casino, a drink package might not be necessary.

Bottom line: Is a Celebrity drink package right for you?

celebrity cruises drink packages 2022

Now that you have all the details, you can decide, based on your consumption habits, whether a package is right for you. If you know you'll be drinking four or five drinks per day, plus bottled water, sodas and a smoothie now and then and don't gamble much or have loyalty status, you're likely to at least break even on a package.

Some people prefer to pay as you go. You can see each purchase in the cruise line app. If you go on a bender one night, it's easy to cut back your drink purchases the next night. Not having a package is a good choice for those who are either budgeting their money or dialing back their alcohol or calorie consumption.

The grayest area tends to be for those with Elite or Elite Plus status who also gamble. You might save money by simply bringing some of your own drinks on board and a refillable water bottle.

My own experience on a recent cruise was that the Elite happy hour drinks, along with a drink now and then in the casino, were enough for me. My husband played Blackjack for long hours and had a steady stream of his favorite beverages each night at no charge.

You can also look at drink packages from the point of view that it's simply another part of your vacation enjoyment. The three Celebrity drink packages make it simple for those who want an all-inclusive vibe on their cruise. If skimping and fretting over the cost of every latte or bottle of water isn't how you roll, pick the Zero Proof package if you don't drink alcohol, the Classic package if you aren't picky about your alcohol or the Premium package if you are.

The bottom line is that the packages aren't for everyone. Some like to splurge on other aspects of their cruise by saving on drinks. Others prefer a more complete bill for their vacation paid upfront, including all the drinks they could imagine served at their every whim.

Either way, you'll find a wide range of drink options, both alcoholic and non, from morning to the wee hours of the night. These are part of what makes a cruise vacation fun, no matter how you choose to pay for them.

Worth It? Celebrity Cruises Drink Packages Explained (Prices, What’s Included, and More)

Celebrity Cruises also offers a full lineup of drink packages, giving you the ability to pay one set daily price and then have your choice of beverages without worrying about a bill. Drink as much as you want, and you’ll know exactly what you’ll spend.

celebrity cruises drink packages 2022

But these packages can be pricey and definitely have some fine print attached that you should know about. So is Celebrity’s drink package worth it? We have all the details, including our take on if you should purchase it or not.

What Drink Packages Are Available on Celebrity?

Celebrity offers multiple drink packages that can be tailored to whatever your tastes, from high-end alcoholic beverages to water and soda. So whether you are an adult that wants to let loose, or you are sailing with a kid that wants non-alcoholic drinks, the cruise line has an option.

Classic Drink Package: The basic drink package that offers everything from cocktails to coffee, beers, wine, bottled water, soda, and more. This package limits you to drinks that are $10 per glass or less.

Premium Drink Package: Have higher-end tastes? Or maybe you just want the freedom of more options? In that case, the Premium Drink Package might be for you. It includes drinks up to $17 per glass, giving you everything in the Classic Package, plus much more.

Zero Proof Package: If you want some of the tasty drinks on the ship but aren’t an alcohol drinker, then there is the Zero Proof Package. This deal offers premium bottled waters (Evian, San Pellegrino, etc.) specialty coffees and teas, plus zero-proof cocktails, soda, Vitamin Water and bottled teas.

How Much Do Drink Packages Cost?

Following a price increase and some tweaks to the packages in late 2022, Celebrity lists the following prices for each drink package:

  • Classic Drink Package: $89 per person, per day
  • Premium Drink Package: $109 per person, per day
  • Classic Non-Alcoholic Package: $30 per person, per day

Note that these prices are lower than what you will see on the ship. Celebrity offers a discount for booking early, so if you want a drink package, book before you sail.

Is Gratuity Included in the Price?

The prices shown above are before gratuity. There is an automatic 20% “service charge” that is added onto the daily cost.

So the Classic Drink Package at $89 per day actually costs a total of $106.80 per day after this charge . The Premium Drink Package comes out to $130.80 per person, per day .

Does Everyone in the Cabin Have to Purchase the Package if One Person Does?

celebrity cruises drink packages 2022

What do you do if one person wants a drink package but another person doesn’t? In that case, Celebrity requires that if one person buys an alcoholic package, then all people in that cabin must buy one as well. This includes non-alcoholic packages for teens traveling with parents.

However, there are some exceptions for kids or those with medical/health reasons for not drinking:

  • Kids 12 and under: Not required to buy any package
  • Kids 13-20 (U.S.) or 13-17 (Rest of World): Must purchase Zero Proof Package
  • Pregnant: Must purchase Zero Proof Package
  • Medical issue or in recovery: Must purchase Zero Proof Package

What’s the Difference Between the Classic and Premium Packages?

As mentioned above, Celebrity offers two different alcoholic packages. The biggest difference between the two is that the Classic package offers drinks up to $10 per glass while the Premium plan offers drinks up to $17 per glass. The Premium package also offers a 20% discount on wine by the bottle compared to 15% for the Classic offer.

In short, you simply have more options with the higher-end Premium package.

Still, that’s not to say you’ll go thirsty with either package. Here’s just a sample of what Celebrity says is included with the lower-priced Classic package :

  • Vodkas: Tito’s, Absolut, New Amsterdam, Smirnoff
  • Whiskeys: Dewar’s White Label, Famous Grouse, Jim Beam, Johnnie Walker Red, Monkey Shoulder, Seagram’s VO
  • Rums: Bacardi, Captain Morgan’s, Kraken, Malibu, Myer’s, Wray & Nephew
  • Tequilas: Don Julio Blanco, Teremana Blanco
  • Beers: Bud, Bud Light, Coors Light, Corona, Franziskaner, Heineken, Kirin, Miller Lite, Michelob Ultra, Morette, Newcastle Brown Ale, Stongbow Cider

In addition, the cruise line says it offers “a large selection of classic cocktails made with Classic Beverage Package spirits.”

So if you’re just looking for a drink, then the Classic should have you covered. If you have finer tastes or enjoy fancy cocktails, the Premium package is likely a better choice.

What If I Buy a Drink Above the $10/$17 Price Limit?

Say you have the Classic Beverage Package — which only has a $10 per glass limit — but want a drink that costs more.

In that case, Celebrity’s policy is that you have to pay for the overage. So if you order a $14 cocktail, then you’ll be charged only $4, plus the 20% gratuity on that overage amount.

It’s the same situation if you have the higher-priced package and go over the $17 per glass limit.

Can I Share Drinks With the Package?

It is universal across cruise lines — including Celebrity — that sharing is not allowed. This is a reason that cruise lines require all adults to buy the drink package if one person in the cabin does so. That way, there isn’t a big worry about sharing.

That said, unless you are blatantly obvious it’s not likely that anyone will know if you do share a drink.

How Many Drinks Can I Buy at Once With the Package?

celebrity cruises drink packages 2022

While most people simply order one drink at a time, there are times where you might want to order more. Unfortunately, Celebrity’s drink package rules state that you can only order one drink at a time. Extras are charged at the regular menu price. So if you’re wanting to get a drink for you and your spouse, you’ll both need to order something instead of just one person heading to the bar.

Is There a Limit on How Many Drinks I Can Order in a Day?

No. While some cruise lines have daily limits on the number of drinks you can buy in a 24-hour period with their drink packages, Celebrity specifically says that there is no daily limit on the cruise line.

That said, if you are obviously overserved, then don’t be surprised if the crew declines to give you another drink.

Do I Have to Buy the Package For The Entire Cruise?

If you decide that you want to buy a drink package, then you should know that it must be bought for the entire length of the cruise. So on a 7-day cruise, you’ll pay the daily charge each day for the entire week.

You can’t just pick and choose days to purchase the package.

How Can I Save Money on the Drink Package?

There’s no doubt that the drink package can cost a lot of money over the course of your cruise. But there are a few ways that you can save some cash.

First, if you know that you’ll want one of the drink packages, then buy it ahead of time. Celebrity prominently displays a notice on its website that “Pre-Cruise Pricing Always Lower Than On Board.”

Second, you can potentially save with Celebrity’s “All Included” offer. The cruise lines offers two different fares — cruise only and All Included. With the offer, you pay more than the base cruise fare, but gratuities, wi-fi, and a drink package is included. (For most cabins, the Classic Drink Package is included; those cabins in The Retreat receive the Premium Drink Package.)

While you’ll want to do the math, this can be a less expensive way to get the drink package. For instance, we priced an 8-night cruise with the All Included package for about $440 more per person over the base cruise fare. The Classic package would cost more than $700 alone for that length of trip (before gratuity).

Is the Celebrity Drink Package Worth It?

There’s no argument that the cost of a drink package can be pricey. Over a 7-day trip, the cost of the Classic Drink Package would run $747 with gratuity included. The Premium Drink Package would cost 916.

So is it worth it?

Obviously, the answer is going to depend on the specific person. Are you the sort of person that isn’t on vacation unless there is a drink in your hand? Then yes, the drink package is likely going to be worth it.

Or are you the sort of person that may like to let loose for a night or two but then take it easy? In that case, it’s likely not. But it’s helpful to do the math.

On a cruise ship beers are typically around $7-8 each. Cocktails run around $12-14 each (though Celebrity offers many under the $10 price point for the Classic Drink Package).

For the $89 Classic Drink Package, you have to drink nine $10 cocktails each day to get your money’s worth. For the higher-end Premium Drink Package, you’d have to drink eight cocktails priced at $15 each before you come out ahead.

That is a lot, but that figure doesn’t include things like bottled waters, coffees, or sodas, which can also add up quickly.

As well, there is something to be said about not having to worry about having to keep tabs on your bar bill during the cruise. Want to try a new drink? There’s no risk of not liking it. If that’s the case, you can just order something else.

If you are on the fence of being unsure whether the package would be worth it for you or not, remember that the All Included offer may make the choice much easier. With a potentially lower price for the package, it could put the math in your favor.

Is the 20% gratuities on the drinks that get charged to your account covered by the gratuities package?

Yes, you are charged the 20% on the value of the package. Then you’re covered when you actually get a beverage at the bar.

Is the non-alcoholic package worth buying? I was thinking that we could buy that and only pay out of pocket for a few drinks for me since my husband no longer drinks alcohol. Thanks for your time!

If you got the classic drink package as part of the all inclusive, where do the 20% gratuity come in? Is is part of the cruise price or is it added later? Tx

I can’t seem to find a price list for none alcoholic drinks like juice and specialty coffee, do you know how much they generally cost? I have a feeling during a day I might like a special coffee a juice and perhaps one non alcoholic cocktail so just 3 drinks would it be better to just pay for them individually?

You can estimate about $3-5 for these items ($5-7 for a non-alc cocktail). At just three drinks, you’d want to skip the drink package. However, Celebrity offers the all-inclusive package with fares. In that case, you’ll want to see how much more the included fare (which has drinks, tips, and wi-fi included) costs versus the bare bones cost.

But at three non-alcoholic drinks, you’ll be spending around $15-20.

Sorry I meant, Drinks without the drink package.

Is there anything included in the standard cruise without packages.

Not alcoholic drinks. Basic drinks like tea, water, and coffee are included.

Standard “bar brand” type cocktails are around 10 bucks. Some are more. Look at the list of included booze for the different packages. If you don’t see what you like in the classic checkout premium. Moat everything you can order at any of the bars is included in the premium. Only some very high end top shelf stuff like Louis xiii or Macallan 18 or 20 yr old scotch are over the 17 buck limit. If you juat like basic booze the classic is fine. I check with the bartender when ordering to make sure. You may end up signing for an overage if you don’t check.

20% is added on to the total. They add gratuities to drinks if you buy them one at a time as well. No different

Hello, I have been searching to find the answer to the Classic Drink package as to whether or not it includes soda and regular bottle water? I have reached out to celebrity several times but the wait times have been over 2 hours. If you happen to know the answer to this, I would greatly appreciate your input.

Yes. From Celebrity’s website of what’s included:

“Non-Alcoholic: Juices, Sodas, Non-Premium bottle water, Premium coffees, Premium teas”

So what is the cost of a Jim Beam and water or Canadian Club and water?

Or a frozen drink like a mud slide or strawberry daiquiri?

I’m confused on the difference of the drink packages when you don’t know what is charged per drink

If there are 2 adults in the room with the classic drink package, can only one of them upgrade to the premium package? Since the other doesn’t drink.

Yes. Use your card for premium drinks for you. If the other doesn’t drink just get the zero proof package for them. No need to waste money on a classic. The package is listed on your room key/ID card.

Thanks for great info. I was wondering if I book a celebrity veranda room for 3 guests ( 2 adults and 10 year old kid ) with all inclusive ( drink, wifi and gratuity), do we get any discount for kids or is it same price for kid as adults. Thanks

So the 10 year old will obviously get the zero-proof package, but not sure if it’s priced less.

Thanks for the info, does the ship offer events like cocktails making glasses or Martin testing g do glasses, that the package will cover?

Tastings are all ala carte charges, not included in drink package.

So wait…the 20% gratuity is added per day instead of per drink?! Is there a way to opt out of the daily gratuity if you don’t intend to use the package that often…like say you don’t get any drinks for a few days or something like that?

With drink packages you pay one set daily fee — no matter what. Drink 10 drinks and you pay the same as if you had 0 drinks. Then the 20% is added on to the daily cost of the package. That’s why you want to do the math before you buy to see if it’s worth it.

When you sail with Celebrity Cruises, you no longer need to consider purchasing a drinks package. Every Celebrity cruise includes a drink package, gratuities, and basic Wi-Fi with the “Always Included” cruise fare.

Including the Celebrity Cruises drink package with the standard fare provides a more all-inclusive approach to cruising.

If the Classic package isn’t enough, you can always upgrade to the Premium drinks package, which includes higher-priced beverages, large martinis, and Champagne.

But is the drink package worth it on Celebrity Cruises?

We’ve got all the details and a simple calculator to help you decide if Celebrity Cruises drink packages are right for you.

Celebrity Cruises Drink Package

Celebrity Cruises offers four drink packages:

  • Classic Package: Starting at $89 per day
  • Premium Package: Starting at $109 per day
  • Zero Proof Drink Package: Starting at $30 per day

Classic Package

Celebrity Cruises’ Classic Beverage Package is popular among Celebrity guests.

The Classic package starts at $89 per person per day and includes the following up to $10 per drink:

  • Frozen drinks
  • Non-premium bottled water
  • Specialty coffees and teas
  • Vitamin Water

You receive a complimentary Classic drink package when you purchase the Celebrity Cruises “Always Included” cruise fare . The “all-inclusive” cruise fare includes the beverage package bundled with your cruise fare, among other extras.

The selection of beverages covered by the drinks package covers most of the beers and wines on the ship.

You also receive a 15% discount on bottles of wine.

What if you want to purchase a drink over $10?

It’s simple. If you want to purchase a drink that costs more than $10, you will only be charged the difference plus a 20% gratuity on the difference.

Premium Package

The Premium Package is a good option if you want higher-priced drinks.

Premium Package starts at $109 per person per day and includes the following up to $15 per drink:

The premium package covers most drinks offered at the onboard bars and restaurants.

With the premium package, you also get a 20% discount on bottles of wine.

The normal price for the package is $109 per person per day. But, when you receive the Classic package as part of the Always Included fare, you can upgrade to the premium package for only $12 per person per day.

The premium drinks package is your best option for a truly all-inclusive experience on your Celebrity cruise.

Zero Proof Drink Package

The Zero Proof Drink Package is Celebrity Cruises’ non-alcoholic drink package.

The Zero Proof Drink Package starts at $30 per person per day and includes the following:

  • Zero-proof cocktails (Frozen & Non-Frozen)
  • Fresh squeezed juices
  • Premium coffees and teas
  • Bottled water

Is it Worth Upgrading to the Premium Beverage Package?

If you have the Classic drink package in your Always Included fare, you might wonder if it’s worth upgrading to the Premium beverage package.

Remember, if you have the Classic package, you can upgrade to the Premium drink package for $12 per person per day.

For most beer and wine drinkers, the upgrade to the premium package isn’t worth it because many of the included drinks are already included in the Classic Beverage Package.

There’s no benefit to upgrading unless you want to purchase higher-priced cocktails, beers, and fine wine.

I would only suggest upgrading if you want a particular brand or prefer to drink higher-priced beverages such as cocktails or gluten-free beer.

How to Upgrade to the Premium Beverage Packages

So, you’ve received the Classic drink package with your Always Included fare but want to upgrade to the premium package. Now, how do you upgrade?

Celebrity Cruises allows guests to upgrade their drink package costs $12 per person per day.

The first way to upgrade your beverage packages is to upgrade only your drink packages from the Classic Beverage Package to the Premium Package.

After you upgrade, you will receive all of the benefits of the premium package.

But there is another way to upgrade that may save you more money in the long run.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to upgrade to the premium drinks package.

Guests can upgrade from the Classic Beverage Packages to the Premium Beverage Packages for an additional $12 per person per day .

What is the Drinking Age on Celebrity Cruises?

The minimum drinking age on Celebrity Cruises that sail in North America is 21. The minimum drinking age for Celebrity cruises in South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand is 18.

Do Guests Under the Drinking Age Get the Classic Beverage Package?

Guests under the legal drinking age at the time of sailing will get the full benefits of the drinks package when purchasing the Always Included fare, except non-alcoholic beverages.

Can You Use Your Celebrity Drinks Package In The Restaurants?

Yes. You can use your Celebrity Cruises drink packages at the onboard restaurants, bars, and lounges.

Do Celebrity Cruises Drink Packages Limit the Number of Drinks You Can Order?

Unlike some cruise lines, Celebrity Cruises does not limit the number of drinks you can order daily . However, a bartender or staff member can refuse to serve anyone they deem intoxicated. Additionally, you can only purchase one drink at a time.

Can You Take Wine On A Celebrity Cruise Ship?

Yes. Celebrity Cruises allows passengers to bring up to two bottles of wine onboard the cruise ship per cabin on embarkation day . These bottles will be subject to a corkage fee. However, the corkage fee is cheaper than purchasing a bottle of wine on the ship.

This is only applicable to embarkation day. The cruise line will hold any alcohol brought on the ship during port days until the end of the voyage, when it is returned to you.

Many cruisers are surprised that you can bring alcohol on a cruise ship .

Does The Celebrity Drink Package Include Gratuities?

When you purchase the drink package, you need to pay gratuities. But, the gratuities are already included if you buy the Always Included cruise fare.

Does Every Person in the Stateroom Have to Purchase the Package?

If one person purchases a drink package, every guest of the legal drinking age must buy the same package.

If an adult purchases an alcoholic drink plan, guests between the ages of 13 and 20 must buy the Zero Proof Drink Package, while guests under 12 are not required to purchase any package.

Of course, purchasing a drink package is optional, but it is required that all adults sharing a cabin purchase the same beverage package.

Celebrity no longer offers the Elevate or Indulge Packages. These packages ended July 14, 2022. While they were a spectacular deal, it seems the cruise line would rather you spend your money piecemeal instead of on packages…

Good catch! I’ve removed mentions of the Elevate and Indulge package. It will be missed.

I have just booked through Cruise Nation to sail with Celebrity. They say that the drinks package is not included. I telephoned Celebrity and was told it was and to call back cruise nation. We did this and were told after contacting Celebrity the drinks package isn’t included. Most websites say it is, so how do I get this sorted? Thanks in advance.

The cruise fare you are referring to is Celebrity’s Always included fare. This price package includes the drink package, wifi, and gratuities in the base cost of the cruise. It appears that you might have booked the regular cruise fare that doesn’t include these extras.

Your best course of action is to contact Cruise Nation to get it sorted.

Where Can I Get Drinks Packages On Celebrity Cruises?

The best time to purchase your drinks packages is online before your cruise. Additionally, keep an eye out for special offers as Celebrity does send out email offers occasionally. However, you can also purchase a package or upgrade your package at any bar whilst on board.

On our last cruise, I booked the Classic Drinks Package but was unsure if I would prefer the Premium Drinks Package. The classic did not have Pellegrino included, and I was worried I might not like the wine.

Eventually, I made the decision that I would upgrade should I feel the need to once onboard. I am glad I decided, as the Classic Drinks package on Celebrity Cruises was perfectly fine. There was canned soda water which was a great alternative to sparkling water and the wine was lovely.

Commonly Asked Questions About Celebrity Cruises Drinks Packages

Are the celebrity cruises packages worth the money.

If you look at the menus below you will be able to work out if the packages are good value for you.

As a rough example

  • Wine $9 a glass x 3 with dinner = $27
  • Soft drinks $4 a glass x5 = $20
  • cocktails $9 x3 = $27
  • Coffee ( you can also get in take-out cups) $5 x3 = $15

A grand total of $89.00 and that’s working on the classic drinks package prices. When we have this conversation with people they always rank the drink package value against the amount of alcoholic drinks they drink. However, it makes sense to also factor in speciality coffees, soft drinks and water if you intend to drink those too. Also, scroll to the bottom to see our drinks calculator.

Is Prosecco Included In The Celebrity Cruises Drink Packages?

Yes, certain brands of prosecco are included within the drinks packages.

Can You Use Your Celebrity Drinks Package In The Restaurants?

Yes, you can order drinks from your Celebrity Cruises drink packages in the restaurant. Being a wine drinker we thought we would need an additional wine package. However, we drank wine in all of the restaurants we dined in, and just like a package it was kept in a bucket near our table and refilled regularly.

We were also able to order beer and soft drinks in the restaurant as part of our package.

Does Everyone In Our Stateroom Need To Buy A Drink Package?

All guests wishing to purchase a Drink Package must do so for all guests of legal drinking age in the same cabin. Uk age 18 plus, US, age 21 plus. Additionally if one guest upgrades to the premium package all guests must upgrade.

What Is The Celebrity Cruises Drinks Package Limit?

There is officially no limit, although a member of staff can refuse to serve anyone they deem intoxicated to an unacceptable level.

Can You Take Wine On A Celebrity Cruise Ship?

Yes, you are able to bring 2 bottles of wine onboard per cabin on embarkation day only, however, this will be subject to a corkage fee unless you drink it in your cabin.

Does The Celebrity Drink Package Include Gratuities?

Gratuities are charged at a rate of 20% at the time of ordering your drinks package, so yes, you do pay them, but up front and against the price of the package, rather than the value of the drinks you consume.

What happens if I purchased the Premium Beverage Package and the beverage I would like is more than $17?

If you have the Premium Beverage Package or the Drinks and More Beverage Package and you would like a beverage that was more than $17 then you would simply pay the extra.

Can I Use My Drink Package At Labadee or CocoCay?

Yes, you can use Drink Packages purchased onboard or on before on your Cruise Planner at Labadee and CocoCay.

Can I get a full look of the wine list please?

I would like to see the complete wine list for the 21-22 cruise year. We are excited to cruise again and plan much wine on our sunset veranda. Cheers!

I will have a look and see if I can find it !

Title says “and Bar Menus” – Where’s all the menus? I can’t see any. Maybe change it to ‘and constant adverts’

Just don’t read, I really do wonder why some people are so nasty, there is a lot of useful info on this post the menus were removed as out of date and we like to provide updated info. The adverts are not excessive and nothing in life is free, the ads are a small way of us being paid for the hours we spend researching and money travelling in good faith to provide information to readers, mostly kind and nice people.  I will take you rudeness as you have had a bad day, because clearly being rude to others makes you feel good about yourself. The fact that you actually took time to comment a mean comment astounds me!

Bravo! I did have a question. The calculator, does it take in account the basic drink package so only the difference is being charged?

Thanks and thank you for the excellent report! We are taking the Panama Christmas cruise. Cant wait!

You are so welcome, and no it’s just the cost of the drinks to work out if you will spend the cost of the package; however, I do wish we had the software to do so. It would be awesome. Have a wonderful cruise. Sarah

I don’t drink alcohol wud I have to purchase package

it is generally for both in one cabin but if you you ring them and tell them you can normally change this

it is generally for both in one cabin but if you you ring them and tell them you can normally will change it for you

Can you please tell me the cost of a range of Sauvignon Blancs on Celebrity Edge, and also Jim Beam, and other bourbons ? Thank you.

The Sauvignon blanc on beyond is $9 so i would expect it to be similar and more than one type. Yes they have a selections of bourbons , Dewar’s White Label, Famous Grouse, Jim Beam, Johnnie Walker Red, Monkey Shoulder, Seagram’s VO.

Hi is it coke cola or Pepsi

Hi we think its coke as of the celebrity beyond’s menu

Thank you so much for this wonderful write-up. Very helpful!

Thanks so much Laura

Do they sell buckets of beer at a discount price?

They do sometimes do offer on the buckets yes but I couldn’t tell you what they were as didn’t buy one

If I just pay as I drink, is it just added to my room tab?

WHen i cruised on 23 March 2023 on the FLower Power Cruise, there were NO menus on paper and I was told to look online. That is a bit difficult when one is aleady on the ship, about to sail. THerewas considerable confusion among some of the Martini Bar bartenders day to day as to what was on my Classic Package list. They denied me Don Julio Tequila which was on my list, but they often poured Grey Goose in martinis when i know the cut off for vodka quality was at TIto’s vodka. ALso i ordered a lemon drop one martini one evening, and they said it was extra. Why would they not make it with the given vodka or gin on my package? It’s impossible to deal with these issues when ship is underway, 7 people are lined up behind you, and two other lines wait around the bar for the 2 other bartenders to serve thirsty patrons. I’d suggest those who plan to purchase an alcohol package print any and all menus and take those when you board the ship. I certainly will.

Thats so annoying we were on in July and the menus were available, I defo dont want to be looking on my phone for menus

A very useful web page, thanks. As a new cruiser, do you have to pay for coffee and tea at breakfast sittings on Celebrity?

Thanks so much, Jonathon; no you don’t tea and coffee is included at mealtime. You can upgrade to speciality ie cappuccino, but regular is included and in my opinion, tasted great.

Hi my wife doesnt drink but I do, can you purchase just one classic drinks package for a room with 2 adults and 2 children please?

Yes if you contact customer services you can explain and request.

Just home from the Edge,med cruise,. Everything was amazing,the food was to die for,the drinks amazing,u could order which brand u liked. Staff unreal,and so friendly, second cruise with Celebraty, almost surreal how good it was, cant wait to go back.

Fantastic information well put together. Thank you very much

Hi Sarah, The amount of work you put in preparing this page is amazing. Thank you. Very useful info. It makes me wonder if I shouldn’t take the Classic package instead of the Premium, and just pay the difference if I go over the Classic price limit for my wine and occasional mixed drinks. We’ve usually had the package, but that was when X offered the Have it all program. Those were the days! Thanks again for your work.

Sylvain thanks so much, yes i usually am fine on the Classic Package as I mainly drink wine so just pay the few dollars extra when needed. Have a great cruise, Sarah

Hi do you know if the $ prices listed in the menus are the same as the Euro prices on Med Cruises? as I will be travelling this August on the Ascent or will drinks be slightly cheaper in Euros?

Hi we sailed out of Europe and this was the menu in dollars.

Hello is there a drinks menu in £ or euros

What Is the Celebrity Cruises All Included Package?

The Celebrity Cruises All Included Package is a comprehensive offering that takes your cruise experience to the next level. It bundles together several valuable components into a single, hassle-free package , so you can concentrate on relishing your vacation without stressing about extra costs. With the All Included Package, Celebrity Cruises aims to provide guests with an elevated and seamless cruise experience.

The All Included Package typically covers:

  • Drinks : It includes the Classic Beverage Package, which offers a wide selection of unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages such as beers, spirits, cocktails, sodas, and specialty coffees. You can indulge in a diverse range of drinks without having to pay for each one individually.
  • Wi-Fi : Stay connected with friends and family or share your cruise memories on social media with unlimited Wi-Fi access. The All Included Package offers a robust internet package, so you can browse, stream, and stay in touch with ease.
  • Gratuities : One of the standout features of the All Included Package is that it covers gratuities. You don’t have to worry about tipping staff during your cruise, as the package takes care of it.
  • Shore Excursions : The All Included Package also offers credits for shore excursions, which allow you to explore the incredible destinations on your itinerary. Whether it’s a guided tour or an adventurous activity, you can immerse yourself in the local culture and attractions.
  • Onboard Credits : Enjoy additional onboard credits to spend as you please. Whether you want to indulge in spa treatments, shop for souvenirs, or try specialty dining options, the credits give you the flexibility to enhance your cruise experience.

The price difference between standard and “All Included” rates can depend on the cruise length. For instance, on a 3-night Bahamas cruise from Fort Lauderdale, the lowest fare begins at $162 per person in an interior cabin for double occupancy, while the “All Included” rate is $457 per person.

The discrepancy becomes more evident for longer cruises, like a 7-night Pacific Coastal cruise, where the cheapest rate is $409 per person compared to $966 for the “All Included” option. If you want to upgrade from the Classic Beverage Package to Premium , it’s an extra $24 daily, but you can save 5% by booking pre-cruise.

The All-Inclusive Package is a great way to enhance your Celebrity Cruises experience by combining essential amenities and services into one convenient bundle. It allows you to enjoy a worry-free vacation, knowing that most of your expenses are already covered. So, sit back, relax, and make the most of your cruise with the All-Inclusive Package.

Having a drink package also means you can fully enjoy the onboard entertainment, socialize with fellow passengers, and participate in activities without worrying about the costs of each drink. Whether you’re toasting with friends at a live show, savoring a glass of champagne at a formal night, or enjoying a cold beer while watching a sports game, a drink package ensures you can make the most of every moment onboard.

How to Purchase Celebrity Drink Packages

Purchasing a drink package for your Celebrity Cruise can be done at various stages before and during your cruise. Here’s how:

  • Online Pre-Cruise : You can purchase a drink package before your cruise through the ‘Cruise Planner’ section on Celebrity Cruises’ website. Here, you can also find links to other cruise add-ons, such as shore excursions and specialty dining venues, to enhance your vacation. You can buy any add-ons up to 48 hours before your sailing.
  • During Online Check-in : During the online check-in process, you will also have the option to buy a drink package.
  • Onboard the Cruise Ship : If you decide to get a drink package once you’re onboard, you can do so at the Guest Services desk, any bar or lounge, or at promotional stands typically set up on the first day of the cruise.
  • Phone Booking : You can call Celebrity Cruises’ customer service and purchase a drink package over the phone.
  • Travel Agents : If you’re booking your cruise through a travel agent, you can ask them to include a drink package in your reservation.

It’s important to note that purchasing a drink package is completely optional. However, if one person in a stateroom chooses to get a package, all other guests of legal drinking age in the same stateroom are required to do so as well.

Purchasing a celebrity drink package

If you purchase an alcoholic package and are sailing with guests aged 13 to 20, they must get the Zero Proof Drink Package. Guests 12 and under don’t need to get any package. If you’re sailing with a pregnant guest, a recovering alcoholic, or someone with a medical issue that prohibits alcohol consumption, they can get the Zero Proof Drink Package instead of an alcoholic one.

There’s no daily beverage limit on Celebrity drink packages. However, you can only order one drink at a time. If multiple people want to order a drink, each will need to present their SeaPass card to the bartender or waiter.

Celebrity Cruises Drink Policies

Celebrity Cruises has established specific drink policies to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all passengers. Below, we’ll explain these policies, the consequences of not following them, and provide tips for complying with the rules.

Consequences of Breaking the Rules

If you were found violating Celebrity Cruises’ drink policies, the consequences can vary depending on the situation. For example, any unauthorized alcohol found at embarkation will be confiscated and not returned.

If you’re found attempting to bring additional alcohol onboard during the cruise, it will be stored until the end of your cruise. In more serious cases, such as supplying alcohol to minors or excessive drinking that leads to disruptive behavior, you may face further penalties , including being removed from the ship or banned from future Celebrity Cruises sailings.

Tips for Complying with Drink Policies

💡 Know the rules : Before embarking, familiarize yourself with Celebrity Cruises’ drink policies. This includes knowing what you can and can’t bring on board, and the rules for purchasing and consuming alcohol.

💡 Pack smart : If you want to bring wine or Champagne onboard, make sure to pack it in your carry-on bag. Remember that each stateroom is allowed up to two 750ml bottles.

💡 Drink responsibly : While onboard, it’s essential to drink responsibly. This not only helps you avoid breaking the rules but also ensures a pleasant experience for both you and your fellow passengers.

💡 Keep receipts : If you buy alcohol in a port of call or from the onboard duty-free shops, keep your receipts. This will make it easier to collect your items at the end of the cruise.

The cost to upgrade is typically $12 per person, per day , plus an 18% service charge .

Please note that the price may vary based on the current promotions. It’s recommended to check the Cruise Planner or speak to the Guest Services team onboard for the most up-to-date pricing. Remember, upgrading your package gives you access to a wider selection of premium beverages, enhancing your overall cruise experience.

Can You Share Your Drink Package?

Celebrity Cruises drink packages are designed for individual use and cannot be shared with others. Each drink package is assigned to a specific guest and linked to their SeaPass card .

Are Drink Packages Worth It?

Deciding whether a drink package is worth it depends on your drinking habits and preferences. If you enjoy indulging in a variety of premium beverages and plan on having several drinks each day, a drink package can offer significant savings compared to purchasing drinks individually.

It also provides the convenience of not having to worry about the cost of each drink and can enhance your onboard experience. However, if you’re not a frequent drinker or prefer to stick to the complimentary beverages provided, purchasing a drink package may not be the best value for you.

Consider your drinking preferences, the duration of your cruise, and the inclusions of each package to determine if it’s a worthwhile investment for your trip.

Tips for Making the Most of Your Drink Packages on Celebrity Cruise

It’s essential to pace yourself and drink responsibly, but having a rough plan can help you get the most value from your package.

Drink packages on Celebrity Cruises

celebrity cruises drink packages 2022

Celebrity Cruises’ drink packages offer good value on drinks as guests pay just one price to enjoy a wide variety of beverage choices. These include premium coffees, bottled water, wines by the glass, beers, and cocktails. Drink packages can be used in the main restaurant, specialty restaurants, casual dining restaurants, and all bars and lounges.

The drink packages are also valid at Labadee and CocoCay . Room service and minibar drinks however are not included.

Furthermore all drink packages are for single-guest use and cannot be shared by multiple people, but this is standard for all cruise lines. This means that when one guest in a stateroom purchases a drink package, all other guests of legal drinking age in the same stateroom have to buy the same drink package.

There are some exceptions to this policy. Guests are not required to purchase a drink package for children 12 years old and under. For teens, a Zero Proof (non-alcoholic) Drink Package will be added. For pregnant guests and those not allowed to consume alcohol, for medical reasons for example, a Zero Proof Package will be added.

While there is no daily limit for drinks with Celebrity Cruises drink packages, guests may only order one drink at a time . Additional drinks ordered will be charged at current bar prices.

It’s also good to note that the price of a drink package does not include gratuities. 20% gratuity is added to all drink package prices when you buy them, either pre-cruise or on board. Package prices may also reflect an additional tax for certain ports or itineraries.

You can purchase the Celebrity Cruise drink packages online, up to 72 hours before you sail, or on board during the first day of the cruise. Buying the drink package before you sail will save you money. For our March 2024 cruise aboard Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Cruises offered a 40% pre-cruise discount on the Classic Drinks Package (€48.72 per guest per day instead of €81.20) and the Premium Drinks Package (€58.74 per guest per day instead of €97.89).

But what if you bought a drink package pre-cruise but decide you want to cancel it? Drink packages can be canceled through the Cruise Planner up to two days before the sail date and you will receive a full refund. Once on board, refunds will be credited to your account and any partially consumed portion of the package will be charged at full price.

Are cruise drink packages worth the price?

When it comes to the all important question whether or not a drink package is worth the price, it all depends on your personal preference and situation. For those seeking an indulgent cruise experience without the concern of accumulating additional expenses, a cruise drink package is the ideal solution. Upon boarding, you gain immediate access to a variety of premium coffees, beers, cocktails, frozen beverages, and wines by the glass, all included in your cruise fare. However, keeping in mind that all guests in the same stateroom need to purchase the same drink package, if you do not plan to consume many drinks, it may not be worth the additional cost. Also, if you are an Elite member in the Captain’s Club you get free drinks from 5 to 7 PM during Captain’s Club daily Elite Cocktail Hour.

Furthermore Celebrity Cruises provides coffee, tea, iced tea, lemonade, hot tea, milk, non-bottled water, hot chocolate, orange juice and other assorted juices onboard complimentary.

Additionally guests of legal drinking age are allowed to bring one 750 ml bottle of wine or champagne on board on embarkation day. Just remember to consume it in your cabin if you want to avoid a $25 corkage fee, unless you have a Classic or Premium Beverage Package.

Celebrity Cruises Drink Calculator

Calculate your likely consumption on your next celebrity cruise and see if one of their drink packages are worth it.

We’ve created this handy  drink package calculator  to help you decide whether or not purchasing a drink package on your next Celebrity Cruise is right for you.

How to calculate your beverage costs on Celebrity Cruise Line

  • Choose your package. The daily charge will appear in the daily charge space, but you can change that if you are getting a discount.
  • Select your length of cruise. You’ll notice how the cost increases according to the cruise length. If you’ve selected the All Included promotion, you’ll see the price is just the difference you will pay to upgrade. 
  • Choose the number of drinks you consume, or expect to consume each day. We’ve put the average drink price in the cost fields, but you can modify those if you like more expensive drinks (it’s worth looking at the drink menus)
  • The calculator will do the math and tell you if it is worth purchasing a package (or upgrading) based on your consumption! 

Start by choosing a package

Classic package / all inclusive cruise fare includes:.

  • Select, cocktails & spirits under $10 USD ($12 for AUS & UK Cruises)
  • A variety of beer and wine by the glass $10 USD or under
  • 15% off all bottles of champagne and wine
  • Unlimited soft drinks and juices
  • Specialty coffee
  • Bottled water

Premium Package includes:

  • Top-shelf cocktails & spirits up to $17 USD (or $20 for AUS & UK Sailings)
  • 20% off bottles of wine
  • Unlimited soft drinks, smoothies, and juices
  • Unlimited “Premium” still & sparkling bottled water i.e. Evian, Pellegrino
  • All Specialty coffee & specialty drinks
  • Energy Drinks

Zero Proof Package includes:

  • Virgin Cocktails
  • Fresh Juices
  • Premium Coffee & Tea

Estimate Your Daily Consumption:

Each field contains the average price found on most Celebrity ships. Remember any drink not within the price of your package, you’ll only pay the price difference plus the service charge per drink! If you tend to drink nicer wines or cocktails, you can adjust the average price of each beverage in the corresponding boxes. This helps give you a more accurate idea of your possible spending.

Each field contains the average price found on most Celebrity ships. For the Premium beverage package, nearly all drinks are included with the added bonus of discounts on bottles of wine. If you tend to drink nicer wines or cocktails, this is your best option!

When you upgrade to a premium pkg from classic and pay the diff, are gratuities separate now per drink and you pay that at the end of the cruise? Or is it included and you just don’t see it? Not quite understanding.

Hi Bobbie – It depends on where you’re located. If you’re in America, you’ll see the price to upgrade, then at checkout, there will be the gratuities added at checkout. There will be no additional gratuities unless you go over the drink price ($17USD for Premium) – So you’ll never see a bill or any additional costs unless you go over the per drink price, in which you will see the difference + 20% of that difference as a gratuity. So if your drink is $18, you’ll get a bill for $1.20 ($1.00 + .20 in gratuity for the overage amount only). The overages are settled nightly against your shipboard account. I hope this makes sense! If not, let me know.

No it makes me wonder if I should book my beverage package for my March cruise today?

dreamer321

I upgraded last night from classic to premium.  I would expect the upgrade price would increase $1 to $2 per day but since I was going to upgrade anyway I went ahead and did it before the price increase.

I'm also expecting drink prices across the board will increase $1 to $3. Will see tomorrow.

As far as I know nothing has been released that  says in the package price will increase.   What is known is :

the the policy that allowed 1 passenger in the cabin to have a beverage package while the 2nd + did not have to have a package is changing.  Now everyone( legal age)  has to have a package or no one has a package with some exceptions.

Also there will be Zero Proof packages.  

The price limit on the Classic and Premium is being raised.

It clearly says in the FAQ's  The new pricing for the Classic, Premium, & Zero Proof (Premium Non-Alcoholic) Drink Packages takes effect on   December 19, 2022   for pre-cruise purchases. New pricing onboard takes place on the dates below. This price increase will not be added to those guests/groups that purchased Classic, Premium, & Zero Proof (Premium Non-Alcoholic) Drink Packages before   December 19, 2022 . 

If there was no intention to "increase prices" why would it say this? 

So I just added  in my premium beverage package on to my cruise only through Blue chip club. The price from premium package has gone from $84 to $109  tomorrow!! I spent 25 minutes on the phone on hold to save 20% with my elite plus ! well worth the time 😁

Thanks

Thank you for posting I would not realize the $$

well you don't have very long to wait, very soon you'll have your pick of new posts advising

Increase the price and decrease what is available.     

Great way to increase or make up for lost revenue.   

On our last cruise in Oct many of the  spirits that were listed  in the premium weren’t available because of a supply issue.   Strange that the everything included in the Classic were.   

Happy cruising 🌊 🚢 🇺🇸 🌅

Didn’t realize this was happening and Blue Chip Club is closed so I had to book on line. Didn’t get my 20% discount, but still cheaper than what it will be once the price goes up. 😩

I tried calling as soon as I saw your post, but the office was closed. Didn’t really have any other option. Not sure if I call in the morning if they will give me the discount, but either way it’s cheaper now. It did have a 9% discount so was $75/day

$84 to $109?  That is almost a 30% increase.  And almost… abusive.

Haha

Does anyone know the old AND new upgrade prices?  From classic to premium?  I see numbers thrown around here but they seem to be package prices.  I’m on classic from All Included.  I want to upgrade to premium.

CruiseCrew123

On my cruise planner the premium is $109 and the classic $69 so that would make the upgrade $40 plus gratuities 😱

On my September October Equinox cruise I overheard a sommelier telling a guest that many with the Premium package were drinking wines from Basic. What a money grabber.

If it were for something essential to life I'd agree. But it's a non-necessity. If anything they're doing you a favor for your health if it makes you reconsider upgrading.

They must just be rolling out the prices on the app as classic now says $89 so only a $20 up charge now - still the 2nd large increase in a year 

stellarose

glad I got the classic package via AI for next summer. I don't mind paying the upcharge for a drink or two.

Cruise Drink Packages: Your Options by Cruise Line

C ruise drink packages can provide incredible value for people who plan to regularly imbibe on their voyage and want the convenience of an unlimited open bar package – whereas they may not be a good deal for light drinkers. Other options include alcohol-free drink packages, which let cruisers indulge in soft drinks, hot chocolate, specialty coffees and a range of other nonalcoholic beverages.

Whether or not to get the drink package is a question all cruisers face, and there's no perfect answer for everyone. Read on to learn about the drink packages offered by the major cruise lines and what each beverage package includes.

Expert tip: The price of each beverage package will vary from sailing to sailing and may change at any time. Also note that cruise drink packages are almost always nontransferable and nonrefundable, and that everyone in your cabin needs to buy a package. If kids are cruising with adults who purchase an alcoholic drink package, a nonalcoholic package must be purchased for them.

About This Ship

 alt=

The third ship in our revolutionary Edge ® Series, Celebrity Beyond℠ takes our innovative outward-facing design further than ever, creating an even closer connection between you, the sea, and every exciting place on the horizon. Soak up the sun, salt breezes, and stunning scenery in newly expanded open-air spaces. Savor fine dining that rivals anything you’d find on land. And discover even more ways to relax and renew.

Onboard Features

The Grand Plaza

The Grand Plaza is a transformational place that offers a different experience every time you visit. From day to night, the lighting changes from warm and inviting to bright and dramatic.

Rooftop Garden

What better place could there be to gaze at the sea than float pools that are cantilevered over the open ocean? This feat is one of the highlights of our redesigned Rooftop Garden, which now extends right over the water’s edge.

Resort Deck

Find endless ways to connect with the sea, including the Rooftop Garden, the adults-only Solarium pool, and the Main Pool—an asymmetrical space surrounded by an outward-facing, terraced pool deck.

The Solarium

On the Resort Deck, you’ll find the adults-only Solarium. Celebrity Beyond continues the tradition of offering this glass dome-covered pool area where adults can unwind in luxurious style. The Solarium features a pool and hot tubs for liquid relaxation. Grab a light bite for breakfast or lunch at The Spa Café and Juice Bar or order your favorite beverage or cocktail.

The sheer size of Eden will amaze you. In fact, Eden has more outward-facing glass than any other venue at sea, so here you’ll feel more connected to the sea—and the stunning destinations beyond. With Eden Café, Eden restaurant, and Eden Bar, three levels of cozy nooks, lounge seating, and lively entertainment, no matter what time of day or night you visit Eden, it will leave you intrigued and wanting more.

The Magic Carpet

The Magic Carpet® is a cantilevered, floating platform that reaches heights of 13 stories above sea level. Majestically situated on the starboard side of the ship, it makes Celebrity Beyond’s sleek profile recognizable from miles away. Enjoy comfortable seating, a full bar, and space for live music performances.

The Theatre on Beyond

The entertainment aboard Beyond raises the bar on vacations to even greater heights with experiences that are just as revolutionary, just as technologically mind-blowing, and just as carefully crafted as Celebrity Beyond itself.

This Vegas-style casino rivals the biggest and best land-based casinos. With a variety of games in a smoke-free environment.

Whether you’re joining the excitement of the daily activities that take place here or popping in at night for the cutting-edge entertainment experiences, The Club offers hours of entertainment—with a completely new look.

The Destination Gateway

A multi-purpose area that brings our destinations to life. When not in use as a luxury embarkation station, the space is transformed into an intimate setting for programming centered on shore excursions and more.

The Celebrity Shops

A carefully curated collection of upscale and sustainable products from world-famous brands that represent the ultimate in luxury.
