Should I buy a drinks package?

Many people ask if its worth purchasing a drinks package to make your cruise all inclusive, I personally can whole heartedly say yes, even if you aren’t a big alcohol drinker, many include an array of soft drinks too and one of the best value at sea is with MSC cruise lines

The advantage of adding an all inclusive package before you travel, is you can have a cheeky glass of sparkling wine once boarded to celebrate your holiday. That may be just me but to me the main thing is that it does work out better value overall, if you were to buy on a drink by drink basis any cruise line will automatically charge a 15-18% gratuity onto the cost of any drink, so for example if your wine is 4.50 euros, this is more like 5 euros, if your cocktail is 7 euros this is actually 8 euros. Once you have bought a couple of soft drinks and water during the day, a glass or 2 of wine with dinner and maybe a night cap this is all it takes to make your drinks package work for you

The prices do vary on the length of your cruise but offer fantastic value and means you don’t have to worry about a surprise bill at the end of your cruise, plus if you’ve always fancied trying a new drink or cocktail that you have always wanted but maybe a bit wary, you can without worrying about the cost, you never know you may discover something really special

These drinks packages can be added on to your cruise before travel and just paid for with your final bill, so if you already have a cruise booked with us or are thinking about making a booking, consider these options before you board.

Hi I’m Marcia and I’m here to share all things on cruise and travel. Holidays are my life and I love to share my experiences and hear of others. I’ve worked in travel for almost 10 years now, and still love helping people find their dream holiday. As you may know if you’ve reads my previous blogs I have a little passion for Norway and the hunt for the Aurora Borealis, I blame it all on my mother, what started out as her dream has now become a passion for us both and once was never enough. Italy is another of my favourite countries, I’ve never had a bad trip there, in fact I don’t think there’s anywhere I’ve been to that I haven’t enjoyed, and I’ve been travelling since I was a baby, living in India for the first year of my life, not that I can remember that of course. My motto is enjoy yourself your on holiday and make the best of every opportunity, and once it’s over look forward to your next one, which is where we come in
