    by Barrtlebee » Thu Dec 31, 2015 4:22 am

    Does anyone know if there are any kind of drink packages? Have there been any on past cruises?

    What do you mean by water? Isn't water covered in the general payment?

    It is.

    I've been two years in the cruise and for what I know the packages include sparkling drinks and juice - although there's also some bad quality free juice in the buffet. As for water, I don't know, there might be some higher quality bottled water which you have to pay for. I've never really been interested in that :D But yeah, you get water for free, don't worry about that.

    Tap water is free. Bottled water, of any kind, you have to pay for. I do not drink alcohol, so I know that!

    There is also free juice during meals. It is not that bad.

    I thought there was actually a wine package, but I can't remember.

    There will never be a package covering beer and liquor, sadly. We drink too much. If I had a package, oh man, I'd be never without a nice beer or margarita in my hand, I guarantee that.

    Juice and things are quite useless at a party, no? Aside from making good screwdrivers. :givebeer:

    Joking aside, it's good to drink plenty of water, but I know I didn't last year.

    Packages that were offered last year (that I can remember):
    Reference prices - (http://media.royalcaribbean.com/content ... ckages.pdf)

    Royal Replenish ($22 USD per day)

    Includes:
    • Premium coffee
    • Premium tea
    • Bottled water: Sparkling

    As already stated there is has been no alcohol packages offered in the past but.... in the faqs you can see that you are allowed 2 personal bottles of wine or champagne per stateroom (I don't ever recall people checking how much a stateroom has)
    Alcohol
    (http://tinyurl.com/hlj7fk2)

    Q: Can I bring liquor or non-alcoholic beverages (from home or from a port) onboard?
    image: http://www.royalcaribbean.com/s.gif

    A:
    Guests are not allowed to bring beer, hard liquor, fortified wines or non-alcoholic beverages onboard for consumption or any other use on boarding day or while in port. Alcoholic beverages seized on boarding day will not be returned.

    Guests wishing to bring personal wine and champagne onboard may do so only on boarding day, limited to two (2) 750 ml bottles per stateroom. Additional bottles of wine beyond two (2) bottles that are brought onboard or any alcoholic beverages purchased in ports of call or from Shops On Board will be stored by the ship and delivered to your stateroom on the last day of the sailing.

    Security may inspect containers (water bottles, soda bottles, mouthwash, luggage etc.) and will dispose of containers holding alcohol. Guests who violate any alcohol policies, (over consume, provide alcohol to people under age 21, demonstrate irresponsible behavior, or attempt to conceal alcoholic items at security and or luggage check points or any other time), may be disembarked or not allowed to board, at their own expense, in accordance with our Guest Conduct Policy. Guests who are under the permitted drinking age will not have alcohol returned to them

    I know there is an alcohol package because I've seen it on the Royal Caribbean website, it's about $40 per day and includes beers and wine. But everyone is saying there is no alcohol package so whether it's not offered for 70000tons I don't know.

    I'm not a big drinker, in fact I didn't have a single alcoholic drink on the 2015 cruise, so I got the Royal Replenish package which includes virgin cocktails and premium coffee, it was great. I think it was about $80 for the whole cruise. Souvenir cup wasn't offered though unfortunately.

    It's not. Maybe if we are lucky, someday, but I wouldn't count on it being there.

    Sorry man. No Alcohol package. The one offered on the Caribbean site is not valid in our cruise. Otherwise they would go broke!

    Last year I got the water bottle package, but I recommend skipping it. Bring an empty and fill it up at the coffee shop instead.

    Also, unless something has changed, Independence of the Seas does NOT have FreeStyle Coke machines, or any guest-accessible soda fountains, onbroad. Another reason to miss dear old Majesty. :cry:

    Royal appears to differ from Carnival in that they don't let you bring any sodas or bottled water onbroad when boarding. Carnival allows up to 12 cans of soda per person in carry-on luggage, which is pretty cool. They used to allow bottles (soda or water) to be brought onbroad but now they only allow cans.
