Drinks

I know that soft drinks, coffee and tea are complimentary on deck, but does DCL offer any beverage packages? I have seen them offered for other cruise lines. I most likely will have no more than one frozen drink per day, so I am mainly thinking of my husband who will want beer. This will be our first cruise.

Because soft drinks (exept from the bars) are free there are no softdrink packages.

There is a beer mug that means that you buy a mug and then refills on tap beer are cheaper then the normal prices. When you are done drinking your beer you can turn in the glas for a coin that way you don't have to drag you mug with you.

There is a wine package then you get i believe one bottle of wine per day with dinner.

There is also a water package but this just means that you get 24 bottles of water for about 24 bucks instead of 5 at a grocery store...

And then there is Cove Cafe where you can get speciality cofee's there you can get a Cove Cafe card that means that when you buy 5 cofee's your sixt is free.

There are also deals on bottled beer. I think my DH got 6 bottles of beer (along with a bottle opener) in a large bucket of ice. Not sure of the cost, but remember it was better to "buy in bulk" than to just order single bottles.

They do run buckets specials. If you can carry a case or two on the boat. We paid $144 dollars for a case of miller light on the first day. We weren't able to get to a liquor store prior to the cruise. We aren't making that mistake this year. One bucket without a special is $35 this includes gratuity. 6 bottles of beer for $35.00.

Only on the Fantasy. You don't have to order martinis. You can order any drink the bartenders can make.

Really?! Because I hate martinis (I like the girly ones, or the real gin martinis with olives, but I had one on the Fantasy called "Celtic Twilight" OMG, I was gagging...) and I wanted to do the passport... Cool beans.

Did the beer mug plan this past year as described above. It works out to be about 1 1/2 times the size of a normal draft beer at the bars. I think I figured based on the price you'd have to have about 8 to 10 beers or something like that to come out ahead vs. just buying the normal beers. You can use in the MDR (just give them token and they bring in mug), and the normal bars. Given an 8 day cruise, and maybe two beers a day, I'd say it was worth it.

We got one of these in December and enjoyed ourself. Overall you save about the cost of one drink over buying them individually. I've still got one stamp left in my passport so we will get one free when we sail in a couple of weeks.

We (belatedly) found out about this on the next to the last day of PCC 4.0. We have a card with five stamps so our first coffee will be free when we next sail. For us (a couple of older adults) the Cove Cafe is a nice, relaxing place to sit and chat for a while.

We did carry on a bottle of spirits, but for my DH 1 bucket of beer was enough. There's no way I would have bought him case at that price!

However $35 for 6 bottles is not much more expensive than we would pay at home in a bar (don't worry - it is cheaper in supermarkets).
