Default Cheers Drink package questions

Two questions I have about this all inclusive drink package. First, is the 15% gratuity based on the $42.95 per day rate meaning they will charge you on that daily total or will your sail and sign be billed $42.95 and you get a 15% charge on every drink you order as you order? Seems you ultimately pay more if you drink more.

Secondly, I know you cant buy this on a daily basis but can you purchase on day 2 or 3 and only pay based on the remaining days of your cruise?

The tip is based on the daily rate. You MIGHT be able to wait until the next day after you board, I cant remember, but no you cant just purchase the days you want or fewer days.

you will be charged all at once when you sign up, so how much you drink would not affect the total amount charged.

From what I remember it's the first 3 days of a long cruise, but if your on a 3 or 4 day they might require on day 1. Just ask a bartender they'll know for sure on that cruise.
