I would say yes. However it does depend on how much you drink and saying this I do not mean alcoholic drinks only. But also speciality coffees, fountain sodas, mocktails and water. It does also offer a large selection of classic cocktails, many favourite wines

People often associate the drinks packages with alcohol. When in fact if you are ordering a variety of drinks though-out the day “alcoholic and non alcoholic” then a drinks package could well be the most economical way to do this.

The menus onboard are very clear so you are able to understand what you can, and can-not order on the classic drinks package.

The Non Alcoholic Zero Proof Drinks Package is Celebrities’ premium non-alcoholic package costs $30.00 per person, per day plus 20% gratuities/service charge.

This replaces the soda package but offers more choice, and in many cases can be packaged to be included in your cruise fare which takes the stress of thinking about additional costs once you are on your cruise vacation.
