It's Official, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line Intros All-Inclusive Beverage Packages
(12:55 p.m. EST) -- Royal Caribbean is rolling out two all-inclusive beverage packages to its fleet. The packages are available on seven-night or longer sailings on 13 ships and will be available on all ships by early 2013.

Passengers must purchase packages on the first day of their cruises, and they must purchase for the entire length of the cruise. If one person in a cabin buys a package, all passengers older than 21 in that cabin must also purchase the package.

The two choices are:

The Classic package ($45 per person, per day) features beer (priced $6.25 or less), house wines by the glass, as well as all nonalcoholic cocktails, sodas and juices. Bottled water and minibar items are not included.

The Premium package ($55 per person, per day) includes beer (no price limit), house wines by the glass, frozen drinks, cocktails including premium brands, as well as all nonalcoholic cocktails, sodas and juices. Bottled water and mini-bar items are not included.

Prices for both packages are inclusive of service charges. Package users may only order one item at a time for individual consumption. There is no daily limit on how many items a person may order.

According to Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, executive vice president of operations for Royal Caribbean, the beverage packages are part of the line's revitalization program, which also includes adding Oasis-class services and amenities on older ships.

The 13 ships currently offering the packages are: Legend of the Seas, Grandeur of the Seas, Splendour of the Seas, Independence of the Seas, Vision of the Seas, Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas, Freedom of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, Brilliance of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas and Explorer of the Seas.

Cruise Critic first revealed the line was trialing these packages at the end of November.
