Default Bucket of Beer vs Bar Set-Up

Can anyone tell me what NCL is currently charging for a bucket of beer? I know I can also order cases of beer as part of a Bar Set -up, but I wonder if there is really that much difference in price? The only problem is my husband HATES Budweiser and it always seems to be the choice if you want to buy beer in bulk quanity. Thanks for your help.

Go for the bucket of beer onboard. Buy 5 get one free of almost any beer domestic or import. Bar Setup will charge you for every can at the bar price.

Better yet watch for the 2 for 1 after midnight in the casino in the Freestyle Daily. You can't get two buckets and it is restricted to domestic beers but you can buy 6 and get 6 free.

shoreguy,

Can you buy 6 bottles of beer that way telling the bartender not to open them and get 6 free and then take them back to your cabin and keep them until the next day? Thanks.

Sure can. They key is if they offer the half price deal in the casino. They always had in the past but on the Jade last month they did not but they were giving free drinks with a casino card. I understand the free drink experiment is over.

shoreguy,

Thanks. I have bought the 2 for 1 deal many times in the casino, but never tried to buy 6 and get 12 for the next day. Will try it on the Jewel repo cruise this October.
