Cruise Line Drinks Prices Compared


If you're partial to a few drinks on board, then you'll know how expensive they can be. But it's surprising how much they differ in price from cruiseline to cruiseline. Some charge a surcharge on top too, which automatically bumps the bill up.

Whatever your favourite tipple, we hope our updated drinks price comparison chart will give you an indication on what to expect before you cruise...
