    Drink plans?

    by CountArioch » Tue Sep 30, 2014 2:22 pm

    Quick question, a friend of mine that does cruises told me a lot of cruises will have "drink cards" that basically let you pre-pay for a certain number of drinks per day for less than it costs on the ship. Does 70k do this?

    Those must have been some pretty expensive bills at the end of the cruise :shock:

    Out of curiosity, about how much are you paying for a drink on the cruise? Is it typical of what you'll see in Canadian bars, 5-7 for highballs and beer, 7-10 for a glass of wine?

    You're right, I was. :smash: I'm sorry, I have to take a selfie or find someone to do take a photo for me... and I hate selfies. Tomorrow I'm going to Amon Amarth/Skeletonwitch/Sabaton, I'll take something there for sure!

    And that's good to know... I can probably expect a similar bar tab. I was worrried, me and a girlfriend were planning on getting a massage onboard so I was trying to see if I could feasibly budget it in between the drinks.

    Not a special price ,just that they will bring them back ( idid notice someone asks them for the price and UMC stated that a "special price would be offered ,maybe 16.66% more than a six pack LOL).I can't remember any drink specials other than the first cheap beer being a "gold level crusier with RC".If this is a newer ship I hope they have a much better system of paying for your drinks,the take your card and sign for you order it a bit of a pian in the ass.The old ship reallly was never set up to handle that much beer and drinks being bought without a simple drink package.

    I'm not particularly a fan of IPAs, but I'm with you on a bigger beer selection being needed on this next cruise. Btw, am I mistaken or were they selling Sam Adams on the last cruise?

    Yes, there was Sam Adams on the boat this year.
    I'd like to see more beer selection too, and am a fan of IPA/APA. But I'm happy as long as there's at least SNPA and Tanqueray gin. :D

    I think Ivo had a seapass bill of a $1,000 + on his first cruise so be
    careful how much you drink as the bill @the end of the cruise is
    never a fun thing to see! haha

    It's been on every cruise. The bottle labels are usually in hebrew.
