MSC Cruises Drink Package Bible

Sharing is caring!

A few years ago, I wrote this post about the MSC Easy Drink Package because it was hard to find the information. MSC has since updated its drink plans. However, I didn’t want to leave you in the dark, so let’s see what’s new in an MSC Cruises drink package.

MSC has five packages:

IMPORTANT: The Easy Drink Package is no longer included in the Aurea Package unless you booked on or before November 13, 2021. 😥

MSC Cruises no longer publishes the cost of its beverage packages on its website. Instead, you need to log in to your booking to see the prices for your cruise. Budgeting for your cruise can be a challenge if you want to see the pricing before booking.

Here is the estimated pricing for MSC Cruises drink packages. Pricing is subject to change at any time, so log into your booking to view the most up-to-date pricing for your vacation.

ONE THING TO NOTE:

I booked this cruise in March 2021. During this time, MSC changed my cabin a few times. However, they somehow deleted the Easy drink package that is supposed to come with Aurea (remember, you still get the drink and spa package if you booked Aurea before November 13, 2021). So, I had to call to get it added back. So, if you booked Aurea before the November deadline, be sure to check your reservation. Just call, and they will add it back for you.

See you when we get back!
