The one where Oceania offered beverages ‘Your Way’…

Two new beverage packages will be available on Oceania Cruises’ voyages from January 2012 with passengers given the option to pre-book or purchase onboard.

The house wine and beer package will be priced at USD$29.95 per passenger, per day, and includes house wine by the glass and beer with lunch and dinner either at a dining venue or via room service.

Oceania’s second beverage package option has been dubbed, ‘Open Bar’ and is priced at USD$49.95 per guest, per day. This includes beer and premium house wine by the glass, along with most beverages on the bar menu available at bars, dining venues and room service.

Both beverage packages incorporate a selection of red and white wines that change daily and are inclusive of gratuities.

“Our new beverage packages are designed to provide guests with enhanced value,” Oceania Cruises president Kunal S. Kamlani said.

“By paying one set price, guests can enjoy a wide variety of drink choices throughout their vacation by just showing their room key card.”

Passengers will continue to receive unlimited soft drinks, bottled water, specialty coffees and teas on every sailing.

Whilst I’m yet to sail on a vessel that offers an alcoholic beverage package, I truly believe that these offer great value.

The option to purchase later in the cruise and pro rata the amount based on the amount of days left sailing, offers a way for you to truly measure your spend before committing to the packages on offer.

Is a beverage package something that you have or would consider when cruising?
