Is it common to have to pay gratuities for the drink package if i have already prepaid my gratuities?

Yes, beverage and specialty dining purchases are excluded from the standard gratuities. This gratuity also extends to beverage and in some cases specialty dining package purchases.

Your prepaid gratuities have nothing to do with the drink package.  Those do not go to the bar staff.  When you purchase the drink package, you will be charged 18% on the price.  If you pay as you go for drinks, 18% will be added to each drink.

It depends on the sail voyage. Drink packages from the USA exclude grat. and added when ordering drinks. From Europe packages incl grat. This often accounts for the difference in the package price between sailings

Drink packages in North America have 18% gratuity (service fee) added during the check-out process.  There is no per drink gratuity charged when ordering a drink when you have a drink package.

If you order drinks on a pay as you go basis without a drink package, then you pay 18% gratuity per drink.

That is incorrect. An 18% gratuity is added to the cost of the Drink Package at checkout. There is no additional charge for gratuity when ordering drinks.

i.e. The drink package listed at $57.99 PP/PD is $68.43 PP/PD  at checkout after the gratuity is added.
