Two months ago, Celebrity Cruises began charging a fee for passengers who chose the beverage package as one of their free perks on cruises.
The cruise line began charging the $14 per day fee on October 10, 2019 due to an increase in the cost of beverages.
After listening to comments from their guests, Celebrity Cruises has reversed course and decided to eliminate the fee on December 17, 2019.
Guests who have already been charged the fee will be upgraded to the Premium Beverage package. They can also reprice to exclude the beverage charge at prevailing cruise rates.
Guests who paid to upgrade from 2 – 4 perks who already had the Premium Beverage Package during the periods of 10/10 – 11/26/19 will receive an onboard credit of $14 per day. Guests who qualify for this onboard credit must have booked under promo names 4PERKS or 4PERKS NRD during the offer period of October 10 to November 25, 2019.
