  1. Unlimited Beverages: The most apparent advantage of the Deluxe Drink Package is the freedom it offers. You can indulge in a wide range of drinks throughout your cruise without worrying about the bill piling up.
  2. Variety and Exploration: With this package, you can be adventurous with your drink choices. Try a new cocktail, savor a local beer, or sample a unique wine without hesitation. It’s an excellent way to explore different flavors and expand your palate.
  3. Opportunity to Try Different Drinks: The Deluxe Drink Package presents an exciting opportunity to venture into uncharted drink territory. You can experiment with various concoctions, especially at the intriguing Bionic Bar, where robotic bartenders create custom drinks that’ll leave you amazed. See our ovation of the seas post on the bionic bar Here
  4. No Surprises: One of the best feelings on vacation is the absence of financial surprises. With the Deluxe Drink Package, you’ve pre-paid for your beverages, so there’s no need to monitor your spending or fret about unexpected expenses.
  5. Stress-Free Holiday: Imagine a stress-free holiday where you don’t have to worry about managing your onboard budget. Whether you’re lounging by the pool, dancing at a party, or enjoying a meal, your drinks are already taken care of.
  6. Socializing: If you enjoy socializing and making new friends while cruising


  1. Daily Cost: The daily cost of the Deluxe Drink Package can add up, especially if you don’t plan to have multiple drinks every day. For some, this cost might not be justifiable.
  2. Limited Non-Drinkers: If you’re a non-drinker or prefer only occasional drinks, the package might not be cost-effective for you. Paying for unlimited drinks when you won’t consume them might not make financial sense.
  3. Port Days: On days when you’re exploring ports of call and not spending much time on the ship, the value of the package may decrease because you won’t be taking full advantage of it. (Unless on Royal island Cococay) 
  4. Specialty Beverages Not Included: While the package covers a wide range of drinks, some high-end or specialty beverages may come at an additional cost. Be sure to check the fine print for exclusions.
  5. Sharing Restrictions: Sharing drinks with others is generally discouraged, and Royal Caribbean may enforce policies against it. If you’re thinking of sharing, be aware of the potential risks.
