What shows up on your invoice with drink package?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

Quick question!  We are going on the Harmony in a couple weeks and we did the drink package.

 

My father insists on having everything linked to his account so he can pay, because he's a great guy.

 

Question: we did the deluxe drink package.  Does a sale show up on the invoice at the end of the cruise for every time we buy a drink, even if it's "free"?  Or does nothing show up unless we decide to add additional gratuity?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Because it is prepaid, it will not show up on your stateroom folio.  You will, however, likely receive a receipt with each purchase to sign.  If you do decide to add a tip when you sign a receipt, that will show up on the stateroom account.

I'm pretty sure on Anthem each drink shower up as a $0 charge on the folio showing where it was charged.

On there printed folio or when reviewing on the stateroom TV? I suppose it's possible different ships do it differently.

Definitely on the stateroom TV and I sure it was on the printed copy as well. Can't check at the moment as I'm working offshore and not home for another 4 weeks.

It would be nice if all drinks prepaid showed up so you could compare at the end if the drink package saved you money or not, but for that reason, I'm guessing the prepaid ones don't show up on the screen. Our tips added did, but I don't recall seeing all the prepaid drinks listed on our Oasis screen.

I think they want to promote the thinking that you've saved money. In reality, I think people do save money or come close enough to not matter if they've gone through the process to consider the purchase.

 

I did a 6 ports in 7 days cruise and I was able to see value with the Replenish package even though I was only onboard for breakfast and dinner.

I agree. And we buy our drink package when it goes on sale. It's close enough in savings for us to just go with it and not worry the whole trip about what bill we may be accumulating. Love the feeling of getting on board and not worrying about what we are eating or drinking because we've already taken care of it before we get on board.

I think the point of this question is, "Will my father be able to see that I had 14 lava flows before lunch?"  just give him a heads up and soften the blow a little...

Ahhh  :-D to my poor memory on the Oasis, I don't remember seeing those pesky martinis listed on my bill. :-P

Or if you purchase a drink in a souvenir cup --- the cost of the cup will show up on the invoice....

If the drinks do not show up on your fathers invoice tab and you want to keep the number of drinks on the QT just tip with cash instead of on your room card.  I always bring a large amount of 1s and 5s for tips.

Yes, I forgot to mention that.  A whole bunch of tips showed up on our account. So for privacy you will want to do cash if you wish to tip.
