    Who are you cruising with?
    Different companies have different policies

    OP has said Azura. P&O drinks prices are very reasonable, about the price of a moderate pub in the UK. Yes you can bring alcohol on board to drink in your room, but its not worth bringing spirits, as a litre bottle of gin (Bombay Sapphire) delivered to the room was about 11, so cheaper than Tesco. Cheapest bottle of wine in the restaurant is about 12.50 (house carafe slightly cheaper), and obviously there is a wide range upwards. You can bring your own wine to the restaurant but you are charged corkage of 10.
    Some other lines charge a great deal more than these prices.

    Very cheap P&O, one of their good points. No alcohol police on this line.... I take a couple of bottles, but no need really, I find the prices reasonable. Try the scarlet pimpernel martini. I didn't try it until the last night because of the ingredient list, but believe me, it's one of the nicest martinis I've had (and I've tried a lot!!). He, He .... Go to the Planet Bar, it's beautiful, great for sailaways too ...Jo x

    Yes you correct with your comments P&0 are the best cruise line for cheap bar prices. Cheers Teddytwopaws

    P&O probably the best for drinks

    And they don't add a 15% service charge plus a space for an additional gratuity!

    I'll drink to that. P&O sound like they are generous with their drink prices and byo policy, compared to other Lines, no alcohol police at the Gangway, that is a first.

    Excellent value on P&O and a good selection across different bars. Last week a 440ml tin of Caffreys was £2.45 and no service charge. Pint of Boddingtons £3.00 and pint of Stella £3.30. As others have said good range of wines at good prices. Hope you enjoy Azura - we did!
