Question Drink package spreadsheet

Does anyone have a link to a spreadsheet for the drink packages? I saw it on here once and didn't bookmark it. It was a daily drink calculator.
Thanks,
Ryan

Default Drinks Package Spreadsheet

I had trouble with the original document so created my own.
It is based on the classic package for 12 nights in $$$ but can easily be changed....items highlighted in orange can be amended as required.
Hope it helps

Great spreadsheet. Figured out that the Premium Package is best for us. We'll save around $195.00 . Thank you for the info....

Except you won't get any service. As soon as the crew sees the premium package sticker or ship card endorsement, they will avoid you like the plague. Cash is king with Celebrity crews... Also, buy the package on the ship after you get your ship card. Many people have had problems when they buy it beforehand and it isn't on your account when you get to the ship and you end up paying twice for it. They won't do anything for you once you get on the ship.

We just got off Reflection Feb 9th. We purchased both classic and premium pkgs once we got on board. Had absolutely NO problem being served at any of the bars. Service was excellent in all respects.

Is this true? I haven't seen any posts about people purchasing prior to boarding and then having to pay again on board due to no record of purchase. This would be most concerning. Where did read this?

Bruinsfan75:

I bought my premium package several months before my cruise, it showed up in all my online docs and my status was printed on my seapass when I got on.

And no waiter or bartender ever tried to avoid me for my drink order. And they were all very happy to serve me no matter where or what I ordered, or if I tipped extra.

I had to turn away the wine guy at MDR because he was coming to me faster than I could finish the drinks.

Just off Summit with two premium packages and had the best bar service of any cruise, ever. Liked having pre-bought the package because then it was printed on our seapass card, as opposed to the sticker you get if you buy on board...we take our cards into the pool/hot tub so would be afraid we'd lose the sticker eventually.

Smile Thanks!!!

Thanks for the info! I found one that I had previously saved to my computer. I tried to attach it. I hope it works...
Has anyone come across a similar resource for Royal Caribbean? It looks like they started a drink package as well and we're looking at Oasis in November.
Thanks,
Ryan

Can you get a new card issued with the package printed on it instead of having a sticker? I have had a new card issued after misplacing one but I didn't have a liquor package.

We had no problem getting drinks using our card. Just ask for the drink, then give them the card. Maybe it helps that we bring some $1 bills to hand over with our card in most instances. We would be doing that with or without the drink package, so it isn't an added expense for us. I was worried about this the first time we got the drink package and my worries were unnecessary.

Has anyone, once on board upgraded their classic to premium drink package??
was it worth it? and do you know the cost?

Thank you in advance for your replies

None of this has happened to us,

I have no idea what you mean by "cash is king" With the package they slide your card; without the package they slide the card, print out the receipt, wait for you to sign it, and file the receipt. If by "more service' you mean they have to work more, you are correct.

Your comment about paying twice is questionable. If you get a receipt to sign, simply explain the situation with guest services.

I believe this person received bad service not because of their premium package sticker, but because of their attitude towards their servers. You reap what you sow.
