Thanks for posting these. Disappointed that they are still so limited with the drink menus. I miss the old ones that had many pages especially of tropical frozen drinks to have more variety of what you can get like blue Hawaiians and lava flows. Maybe one day they would return to this 🙂

Yes!  I've been looking for those myself and thought it was just me not having any luck finding them.

Most of the bars have specialty drink menus now and if they have a blender they can make your tropical frozen drink.  Not all bars have the blenders, so I guess they didn't make it into the standard menu.

Is the drink package cap still $12/drink, or did they bump it up to $13 like the Oasises & Quantums?

I'm going on Freedom and my cap is listed at $12. for a Nov. sail date.

That's a great question that I should have asked more about on board Navigator.  In the Bamboo Room $14 drinks cost me an extra $1 with the DX package.  However I didn't try going over at other bars.  

Anthem was $13 in practice even thought the terms and conditions stated $12.

Mariner did this too...all the T&C on all the drink package promo material all over the ship stated $12 but the limit was $13.

Will confirm, at least on Mariner, it is $13 getting covered. This was verified with one of the bartenders at the Pub.

Same deal as @twangster in the Bamboo Room. The $14 drinks rang up as $1.18. Another FYI sales tax was charged on overages the first day while still in Miami.

Another credit to the Bamboo Room folks, they were informing drink package holders about the overage on those drinks.

So then these premium drinks listed under each liquor, should be covered in the drink package? Will a bartender mind that question, before I down 4 of them? 😏

Never hurts to ask, but you can't order 4 drinks at once with the drink package. 

If there is an overage you'll get a paper bill to sign with each of your four drinks as you sit there and drink them.   

Most bartenders will tell you "That isn't covered by the package, it will be $x".  Like if you order a $17 glass of wine.

... that's it? Not much of a selection! LOL!

Thank you for posting this @twangster... answers my earlier questions regarding what is included other than the brands/types of alcohol listed in the Cruise Planner under the deluxe package. So many options just on that menu!

Excited for my first RCCL cruise - Symphony of the Seas this summer!  We purchased the Deluxe Beverage Package when they were having a BOGO 50% off promotion.  My question...   I understand the package covers drinks up to $13.  If I order a glass of Prosecco that's $15, will they charge me $2?  Or will I be charged the full price for beverages over the $13 limit??

Fresh off Navigator in March 2019 here is the latest version of the drink menu found on many ships. 

It's largely unchanged from 2017 but prices have been updated.

Thank you for posting! Taking a cruise in Sept, not worth getting the deluxe drink package. Nice to know how much a glass of wine will be.

Thanks for posting current prices.  We're heading out on Oasis in April on a Transatlantic; we've done the Deluxe package before, but the prospect of shelling out over $700 each has me considering trying to take advantage of Happy Hours, Drink of the Day, and C&A coupons . . .

And watch for (or ask, I have had them do it for me even if it's not advertised) the punch card offers once you're onboard. They make my call drink of choice (Patron and Grand Marnier rocks margarita) only ~$9 instead of $14! 

IMHO, the drink packages can be worth it if 1) you have a lot of sea days or 2) you can catch a big sale on the price. Otherwise, I can drink a lot of tasty things for less money overall. And trust me, the DH and I have done extensive testing and cost comparisons! Haha!

I haven't cruised in almost 10 years, but I remember every night at dinner our group had the shot of the day or something in those metal shot glasses - is that still a thing and is it included in the drink package w/o the souvenir glass? I think they were called Loving Cups or something corny like that.

Shots at dinner is not like it used to be.  Infrequently a shot may be offered at dinner but I see this less and less.  The drink package never covers specialty drinks that come in a souvenir glass or cup.  The drinks in a Pineapple for example, or Coco Locco's / Labradoozies in souvenir cups at CocoCay / Labadee.  You can ask for the same drink in a regular cup and those are included in the package, but never in any souvenir cup.  In some cases the souvenir drinks are available as a discounted price for drink packages.  Best to ask if you want a souvenir drink and you have a drink package.

Do they offer beer on tap or is it all in a can or bottle? Does anyone know if a list of the beers on tap exist? I would imagine the tap run would vary based on which bar you were in. 

Beer on tap varies by ship and bar but generally speaking it's very limited.  Most ships offer something like Heineken, Heineken Light and Strongbow cider on tap.  Some ships have a brown ale on tap.  Most craft beers are served from cans or bottles.  Generally speaking the draught beer offerings are very limited.

They do have draft beer..and yes, it is dependent on the venue and the ship and availability.  I don't know of a comprehensive list and even when I've seen a bar menu on board with draft selections they often weren't correct or a tap was out.  I didn't pay attention on Mariner this past weekend but the Pub had different beers on draft than Playmakers..I think the Pub had Strongbow and Heineken while Playmakers had Blue Moon, Sam Adams, Heineken, Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin.
