All About The Celebrity Cruises Classic Drink’s Package?
Is the Celebrity Cruises Classic Drink’s Package Worth The Money?
I would say yes. However it does depend on how much you drink and saying this I do not mean alcoholic drinks only. But also speciality coffees, soft drinks, mocktails and water.
People often associate the drinks packages with alcohol. When in fact if you are ordering a variety of drinks though-out the day “alcoholic and non alcoholic” then a drinks package could well be the most economical way to do this.
The menus onboard are very clear so you are able to understand what you can, and can-not order on the classic drinks package, see the menu below for a guide.

Can You Upgrade Individual Drinks Over The Value Of The Classic Package?
Yes, if you order a drink over the $9 price ceiling you’re able to pay the extra over the $9. I did this several times in the martini bar and was only charged the extra.
Is The Classic Drinks Package The Right Package For Me?
If you are happy with the above selection of drinks labels a then the Classic Drinks Package on Celebrity is great. I found the wine very enjoyable, although I mainly drink my wine with soda, the wines we were served at dinner all tasted great.
However if there are any of your favourites missing and you feel you would spend the extra upgrading drink I would go for the Premium Package.
