7 Ways to Upgrade Your Budget Cruiseby Fran Golden | July 26, 2016
1. Buy a wine package.
Enhance your dining experience and save at the same time by booking a multi-bottle package. On Carnival Cruise Line, for instance, three-bottle packages are priced from $77, or you can upgrade to a deluxe package ($97) or a premium package ($114), where you start getting into some French and Tuscan wine options. Tip: If you don’t finish a bottle, you can have it corked and enjoy it the next night.
