I cant list all my drinks in a day.....it would clog up this thread...its a long  long list..........🤣   But it averages around 20-25 per day, more on the first few days, less on the last few

To always have one in my hand. LOL

Bloody Mary for 1st breakfast Irish Coffee for 2nd breakfast VRB (vodka redbull) for the lull  Long island iced tea for 1st lunch pina colada for 2nd lunch (water...

Great topic for times like these!  I'm a proud German/Irish catholic, I've always gotten DBP and hey, I'm not driving the ship.

Day 1-3ish are a lot boozier than days after but here we go-

8-9AM -order a few orange juices with the bagels/danishes and coffee room service.  Mix the champagne I brought onboard (as my two bottles of wine) with the OJ and enjoy on the balcony

10-11am- Bloody mary from pool bar or the new bar by the windjammer (great addition)

Noon-3p Sea day couple beers by the pool, maybe a fun cocktail like mai tai or mojito, if on diving/snorkeling excursion most of them provide a local beer like Carib or good old cheap and easy rum punch

Then either back to the room and nap or in a good shady deck chair spot, then get ready for dinner.  

5-6pm - After cleaning up for dinner grab a bourbon old fashioned or some other classy cocktail at Schooner or somewhere else on the lower decks/around promenade type area

Red wine with dinner, Regular coffee with dessert, after dinner Jameson/ginger or another mojito somewhere with live music.  

Later in the cruise....it's just the beers around the pool in the afternoon and maybe the wine with dinner or the cleaned up cocktail.  The speed and quantity of consumption definitely taper off as the week goes on.  Man I miss cruising.

Kraken and I had a brief but interesting experience together a few years ago.  I may try it again one day, just to see if things have changed since then.  What is life without a little risk and adventure...?

For me, on cruise days bloodies by the pool before lunch; depending on what and where we are having lunch beer or water; afternoon by the pool drink of the day and/or beer; wine at dinner; bourbon (Buffalo Trace or Basil Hayden) straight or with one ice cube after dinner. On port days I always take four bottles of water in my small backpack (not my idea, but this is something she who must be obeyed demands.....and you know how that goes, a happy wife a happy life. Especially on a cruise). 😎

Well..I haven't cruised yet but have a drink question!!

My planner says that both adults adults sharing a stateroom must purchase the DBP...but my husband doesn't drink and I cannot drink enough for both of us to justify the DBP. I like the idea of not having to count my drinks to stay on budget without the DBP but also don't want to spend the money for him to not use it at all. It is a catch 22 - and is there a work around??

Haven't tried it myself, but they say you can call in and request the refreshment package for DH if he doesn't drink.

Yes.  If there are medical or personal reasons why one of the pax does not drink alcohol, they have been allowing the non-alcohol drinker to purchase the refreshments package in lieu of the DBP.

This is correct. I've done this multiple times when purchasing the DBP for myself, as my wife doesn't drink. Just call the number listed at the bottom of any Cruise Planner page, tell them the situation, and they'll let you buy the DBP at the current rate while your husband buys the Refreshment Package.

Do note this is the only option they will offer in this case. If your husband doesn't even want that and he's content with whatever is free on board, then you'll have to just buy your drinks a la carte. But in this case, you can buy a Refreshment Package just for yourself, so that it's only the alcoholic beverages that will be bought a la carte and not everything you drink on board. At $2 a pop, bottled water adds up fast.

Yes, we do this every time.  I get the Deluxe and Hubby gets the Refreshment.  But you have to call them.  You cannot do this online.  Or if you have kids with you, then you can separate you and your husband and book connecting cabins like @ericfromripp suggested.  One with each kid, and then he doesn't have to purchase any package at all if he doesn't want to.

Early morning - speciality coffee, bottle of water

Morning - Maybe a mimosa or bloody mary, bottle of water

Lunch - Vodka soda or gin on the rocks with lime

Afternoon - more clear liquor and bottles of water

Later afternoon - espresso

Dinner - Red wine and/or a martini

After dinner - whiskey on the rocks or a bourbon manhattan and more water

When I type that all out, it sounds like a lot! 🤣
