The Pre-Paid gratuities is to offset the normal AUTOPAY fixed rate gratuity charge to your ship account for each passenger per cabin per day. This does not cover your normal purchase of drinks which have an automatic 15 % added.
So, unless the 15% was buried inside the drink package which I think not , you have been charged correctly. When you order a drink on the ship with your package card, you will not pay 15% as you already did.
