I just cancelled and rebooked several drink and internet packages.  This is the first time i've been able to take advantage of a sale like this.  How long does it usually take to see the refunds for the cancelled packages to show up?

Under normal circumstances, you would see your refund within 48-72 hours but I really have no idea how long it's liable to take now.  Since I suspect that this sale is designed to generate cash for Royal, it would seem logical that they would hold onto your original purchase as long as they possibly can.  I just don't know how long that could be.  I wouldn't look for your refund quickly, like it used to be.  I hope I'm wrong !!  I also made numerous cancellations and repurchases last night.  It would be nice to get the money quickly but I'm not going to count on it.

Many are also noting the ability for just one person in the stateroom to be able to purchase the DBP at this time (this was an option for me on both Odyssey sailings). 

Wow! It auto selected both adults when I cancelled and repurchased. We both wanted it, so I didn't even think of trying to unselect one of us. I know a lot of people will be happy if that option sticks around!

This was my thought as well..this sale will generate some short-term immediate cash.  I think the return policy always stated it could take up to 30 days to see the refund of a cruise planner purchase, even before the current situation.  However it never took that long for me in the past.

Same here.  We were both going to get it anyway but I never even thought about deselecting one of us.  Interesting.

We are both getting it, but for fun I tried and it will not let me unselect one of the guests (for both sailings booked - September & December). Maybe a glitch with a particular sailing or group of sailings?

So I just purchased and I have a minor in my cabin.  I was able to just select myself.   I believe in the past if you had a child in the room it would force the child to get a refreshment or soda package, but not this time.

No, the alcohol package does not require a refreshment package for a minor. We've bought our alcohol packages on one sale and waited for the next sale to buy the kids drink packages. However, if one person gets the alcohol package, all adults in the cabin must purchase it. If you call you may be able to get an exemption to that, but they make the second adult buy the refreshment package instead.

That's what I was thinking! I haven't received my credit for the 125% in OBC but the price is sooo low. They're banking on me buying it anyway and using my future OBC for more things! Pretty good move, I'd say.

Wow, never thought to ask!  Is anyone booked on Rhapsody 7 day out of Tampa late February?  We are strongly considering this for hubby, me & 2 adult children (can you be an adult child???). Would love to know what the UDP would cost.

Has anyone else had a problem repurchasing the Deluxe Beverage Package?  I have a September and a November cruise booked and had already purchased the DBP for both.  I was able to cancel the DBP for both of us on both cruises, but the cruise planner won't let me repurchase the DBP for either cruise.  The DBP no longer shows in the history of either cruise, but when I attempt to purchase  them again, it won't let me click on our names to put them in my cart.

Sorry, of course after I post this, now it decides to work.

No.  Last night I cancelled and repurchased a number of DBP, internet packages and 1 UDP.  No problem repurchasing.
