Drink Package Price Drop

  Why make us have to monitor these prices, than book-cancel-rebook, when they can be straightforward with their prices.  

I'm with you. It's like buying a car. Add-ons, taxes, dealer prep. I don't care about any of this. Add it up any way you want. I just care about the price out the door!

Where is that intern from July when we need him?

I hate what little intelligence I have being insulted.

"Lets see.....if we increace our prices, then drop them to the old price, they will feel like theyre getting a deal!"

i was going to start another thread, but not worth it for what should be a fairly quick question/answer related to the deluxe drink package: this will be our first cruise with a playmakers on board the ship on which we are sailing. can i use the package if i just walk up to the bar at playmakers? i don't really want to pay to eat there, but i'm guessing they will have some draft beer options that are not available at other bars on the ship, so i'd like to be able to get those without having to eat there.

sorry to go slightly off topic.

I am playing the pricing game as I  had purchase pretty low for our cruise that Dorian cancelled.  Now having to price for our rescheduled Dec. cruise.  Right now it is BOGO 50%---61.00 pp.  I know that there is no certainty, but it looks like the Black Friday sales in the past that Matt posted would be better.  What is everyone's thoughts on the BOGO or just the straight 30% off?  right now it is about 120.00 more than what I paid before.  I am with those that just want the rate out the door....hate that we have to jump through hoops, but I am sure that they make lots of money of those who "don't shop around".

Bought mine a few months before the standard prices went up.

The BOGO 50% off priced out at $47 PP/PD

With the new pricing, this 30% off deal prices out at $48 PP/PD

This is what happened today with my October 19 Anthem sailing. Finally got a "30% off onboard pricing" promo -- and the price is $52/night, same as what I have seen for months as BOGO50 (25% off) pricing. It just confirms that the onboard price is now $75/night, in line with the new BOGO50 price of $56 that I saw last week.

Even so, I almost decided to say the heck with it and snap it up. But that would have cost me over $200 after the refund of my Refreshment Package. I did the math of how much I'd likely pay to just buy my drinks a la carte while bringing on 2 bottles of wine (that I've already bought), and the math won over the desire to impulse purchase, saving me $40 - $80 depending on how much drinking I do on board. There's the money I need to get loungers and an umbrella at Horseshoe Bay! 😁

Nope.  But I've found fantastic prices during other sales, and even weird price drops between advertised sales.  I'm not worried about it.

I'm thinking between this message board and the FB group for the Inaugural, we will be getting a lot of tips and heads up for these Cruise Planner sales.  I'm hoping nobody hides this information from us... ha ha

Not a chance we won't know about a price drop.  I always post when I find something, and I'm confident others will as well.

Symphony of the Seas for Jan, 2020 sailing went down to $57 pppd from $65-67 pppd!!!

Let me know if anyone else on Symphony OTS around that sailing frame.

I've canceled and booked at that price, fingers crossed some miracle will drop it even lower for Black Friday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years. (Even Halloween if they roll like that haha)

Mine is still $65 on Symphony 

I know exactly how you feel Jill!

I have the same price for symphony OTS sailing in Jan,2020. It has not dropped lower than $65 in the past 2 1/2 months i've been watchingit.

Hoping for Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale if not we have thanksgiving/christmas/new years to fall back on for a sale.
