Hi there. All P & O ships have a roughly similar price structure for alcohol. These equate roughly to prices at home and are, on the whole, not expensive. As for coffee, yes they will charge at the specialist coffee outlets (Tiffany's) but there is always coffee available at no charge from the 24hour buffet. Have you read through all Oceana's reviews? Have a nice time, Richard.
Hi you get a free coffee /tea and biscuits in your cabin,there is free tea/coffee/iced water and some not to tasty juice in the self service you can have water and tea/coffee with your meals in the main dining Room. A Soda Ginger beer was £1-20 beer about £2-50 upwards wine from £2-70 a glass i would think in terms of pub prices but there is no tip added the menu price is the price you pay? they doallowyou to take on drinks for consumption in your cabin and you pay for special coffees in the bars hope it helps and have a nice cruise .
Thank you your comments have been a big help and im sure i will have a great cruise.
P & O have sent me an email through with the price of every drink on the ship its very cheap i wish i could email it to you but not sure how i would do this its for the oriana, but i would imagine its the same on all there ships, i wish i could let everyone no how much the drinks prices are, as we do like our tipple everynight, we sailed indipendance with royal caribean in september and i was shocked at the bar prices, i was nearly tee total for a fortnight, but it was a lovely ship. I think they have stopped you taking drinks on board now but not sure and they may take it of you when you board.
There is a very useful guide I received re P & O's prices for onboard drinks and this is it -
Bottle/can of beer 330ml £2.35, Soft drinks 150ml £0.75p, Latte £1.50, Glass of white wine £3.35, Spirit plus mixer £2.60. The prices are good at the time of printing, but the small print says that prices may change?! I guess everybody is feeling the credit squeeze and I wouldnt think that the cruise lines would dare to raise their onboard drinks. I dont think P & O offer a drinks package - cant say for sure. Harper, Tunbridge Wells. As we are about to cruise the Med in June 2009 on Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas, would someone please confirm that passengers are not allowed to take alcohol for personal consumption on board ship. Harper. Tunbridge Wells.
Alcohol is NOT allowed to be brought on board for consumption. You can buy whatever you want at ports but all bags are x-rayed when boarding and any alcohol is taken away to be returned on your last nite. We were on Independence in September and had a great time although alcohol was a wee bit pricey even though most spirits are freepour so drinks tend to be larger than at home.
We did our first (and so far only!) cruise on Oceana this autumn. P&O don't take the p1ss when it comes to drinks, they're pretty much what you'd expect to find in a pub or cafe. Tea and coffee are both available pretty much all the time in the Plaza, along with iced water, and all free and gratis. Additionally, fruit juices are available at breakfast time. If you're v. sneaky you can grab a Ribena from the kiddies tea as well at 6pm!! (I had an excuse, as we had a baby with us..honest!)
You can do tea and coffee in your room as well, plus the water in the bathroom is drinkable (its a bit warm but otherwise tastes just fine). Finally, if you want to bring cheap booze on board from ashore, I believe P&O don't have any problems with that.
We too were worried about being trapped and having to pay for every drop we drank, but in the event it was not a problem at all. Oceana is a lovely ship, you'll have a great time and be looked after very well.
Thank you for your comments it as helped that some body has taken a cruise on the same cruise ship,we are not big drinkers me hardly ever but its good to know we could take a bottle of some think on board if we wanted .
All non-alcoholic drinks including teas and coffees ar free on Royal Caribbean lines.
