Back by popular demand, Groove Cruise is offering an all inclusive beverage package on this upcoming sailing. The Groove Cruise Miami 2019 drink package price starts at $67 per person/per day + 18% gratuities and taxes.
There are some terms and conditions you’ll want to consider before making this purchase, which I’ll go over below. Also, just because this package is offered doesn’t mean it’s automatically the best value for your money. I’ll also cover how to determine if this package is worth it for you.
Drink Package Terms and Conditions
The complete terms and conditions will be outlined in the reservation system when you book your cabin, but here’s what you need to know:
- Every person in the stateroom must purchase the package.
- Prices for the drink package might increase as the event gets closer.
- The max price per drink for the package is $13.
- The exact brands included in the package are subject to change.
Nothing here is really out of the ordinary. They don’t want you sharing drinks with non-beverage package purchasers, so everyone in your cabin has to purchase the package. That’s probably the only major consideration for those considering the package. Make sure to discuss the value with everyone in your cabin so you’re all on the same page when it comes to purchasing the package.
What’s included in the Groove Cruise Miami 2019 Drink Package price?
All standard and classic package items plus:
- Specialty coffee & teas
- Craft & artisan beers
- Frozen drinks
- Coca-Cola products
- Premium bottled water
- Wines by the glass (up to $13/serving)
Is the drink package worth it?
The answer, similar to last year’s package, is “it depends”. I suggest you review that post if you want to see some scenarios for non-drinkers, light drinkers, and heavy drinkers. It’s really comprehensive.
Basically, all you have to consider is how much you’d drink normally (and what types of drinks you consume) and compare the cost to the cost of the package.
My math works the Groove Cruise Miami 2019 drink package price out to $79.06 per person/per day including taxes/gratuities (review the actual cost in the reservation system for the latest price and most accurate information). Based on my last calculations, I believe that most people would have to consume 9-12 alcoholic beverages per day (depending on the type) to make out ahead with the package.
I strongly recommend you do your own match based on your habits and consumption patterns to determine if this is worth it for you. Additionally, you’ll have to make this consideration for everyone in your cabin.
Do I have to buy the package?
You do not. Most beverages (like water, juices, and coffee) are included in your cabin price, but alcohol and soda are not.
How do I buy the package?
You can add the package to your cabin booking in the reservation system. If you already booked your cabin, you should be able to login and add it to your reservation. Or, you could reach out to CaptainSupport@WhetTravel.com and they’ll get you taken care of.
Book a premium cabin, Get the beverage package included
You can get the beverage package included in your cabin price if you choose to book a premium cabin type. View the Groove Cruise Miami 2019 prices to see which cabins include the drink package. I calculate this as a value of $316.24 per person, so if you’re considering a less expensive cabin and purchasing the drink package, you might as well see if adding $316.24/person to your budget will get you a spot in one of the premium cabins that include the package.
The Groove Cruise Miami 2019 drink package price should definitely be a consideration in what kind of cabin you book if you were thinking of buying the package anyways.
