Considering a beverage or drink package on your next NCL cruise? We’ve compiled all of the various options and packages to help you understand if buying a beverage package is worth it or not!
How to calculate your beverage costs on Norwegian Cruise Line
First, if you’re trying to figure out whether or not to upgrade to the Premium Plus beverage package after receiving the Free At Sea promotion, this calculator takes into account your free included open bar/beverage package.
If you’ve not received the open bar Free at Sea package, and are considering paying full price for this package, this calculator will also work. You might wonder why we are putting this particular beverage calculator on the page, it’s because, for several years, NCL has made the open bar or “premium beverage package” part of their included promotions. Most people select this option and are more interested in whether upgrading to the Premium Plus beverage package is worth it, but this promotion may not be in place forever, hence this option on the calculator.
- Choose your package. The daily charge will appear in the daily charge space, but you can change that if you are getting a discount.
- Select your length of cruise. You’ll notice how the cost increases according to the cruise length. If you’ve selected the Free at Sea promotion, you’ll find only the gratuities are included in the calculator.
- Choose the number of drinks you consume, or expect to consume each day. We’ve put the average drink price in the cost fields, but you can modify those if you like more expensive drinks (it’s worth looking at the drink menus)
- The calculator will do the math and tell you if it is worth purchasing a package (or upgrading) based on your consumption!
