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, fountain sodas, mocktails and water. The Celebrity Cruises Class Drinks Package also offer a large selection of classic cocktails and many favourite wines.

People often associate the drink packages with alcohol. When, in fact, if you are ordering a variety of drinks throughout the day, “alcoholic and non-alcoholic”, then a drinks package could well be the most economical way to do this.

Can You Upgrade Individual Drinks Over The Value Of The Classic Beverage Package?

Yes, if you order a drink over the $10 price ceiling of the classic package ($12 for sailings from UK and AUS ports). You can pay the extra and get a $10 discount on premium drinks. I did this several times in the martini bar and was only charged the extra. Also, wine by the bottle is discounted by 15%. This allows you to upgrade to artisan beers, large martinis, and craft cocktails should you wish.

You Can Also Upgrade To The Premium Drinks Package

Can I Use My Drink’s Package At Labadee or CocoCay?

Yes, you can use the Celebrity Cruise drinks package purchased onboard or before on your Cruise Planner at Labadee and CocoCay.

Is The Classic Drinks Package The Right Package For Me?

If you are happy with the above selection of drinks labels, then the Celebrity Classic beverage package 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 any of your favourites are missing and you feel you would spend the extra to upgrade a drink, I would look at the Premium Beverage Packages, which include a wider choice of premium drinks and craft cocktails.
