Carnival Cruise Line is now charging $3.99 for a 12 pack of bottled water as part of the new Cheers Program, a 33% increase over the old price. Carnival began selling 12 packs of 500 ML bottles for $2.99 (if purchased before your cruise) when the cruise line banned passengers from bringing bottled water onto their ships in the summer of 2015. The change was made to keep passengers from smuggling alcohol onto their cruise ships.
Norwegian Cruise Line is raising the price on two of their beverage packages. The Ultimate Beverage package will now cost $79 per person per day, a $10 increase. The Corks and Caps Beverage Package will now cost $59 per person per day, up from $54. The soda package will remain at $7.50 per day. All Norwegian ships will see this increase rolled out with the exceptions of Pride of America and Norwegian Sky.
Cruise Fever would love to hear your thoughts on these two price increases from Carnival Cruise Line and Norwegian Cruise Line.
