Drink package question

Sorry if this has previously been answered, but if so I can't find it.  We have purchased the deluxe drink package to have all of our drinks prepaid.  Does this include gratuities?  

It does include gratuities but many times you will be handed a receipt to sign.  There is a line on the receipt for a tip.  I may be overly generous but I suppose it just depends on how often they bring you a drink.

When you made the purchase in the cruise planner you prepaid your gratuities for the drink package.  When you get a drink they may hand you a receipt and you can choose to add an additional tip, but you are not obligated to do so.  While we get the refreshment package, we do not tip on each drink, but since we tend to frequent the same locations you get to know the bartenders and at the end of the trip we may tip extra for great service.  For me, it’s mostly the cafe promenade since I drink far too much coffee.

 

also, note that gratuities for the cruise (~$14 a day per person?) are different than the tips on the drink package.

Either have we.  On on our last cruise, the bartenders at Schooner didn't need to see our Sea Pass card after the 2nd day.  Not sure that is a good thing! 

Think nothing of it. They are extensively trained to have great memories as a part of their employment. 😂

I’ve never been given a receipt to sign with the drink package 🤷‍♀️

I remember when they did, but I haven't had a receipt to sign when I've had the UDP (DX) post restart
