Free drinks on certain Cunard cruises!

November 11, 2014

It doesn’t matter if you’re a beer, wine or cocktail fan – this Christmas season, Cunard has got it covered.

If you book a selected pre-Christmas or post-New Year cruise on either the Queen Elizabeth or the Queen Mary 2, you will be entitled to free drinks throughout your time on the ship up to the value of $9 (£5.60).

This means that you can spend your time relaxing in the on-board lounges and bars without having to worry about how much you’re spending.

What’s more, passengers who are booking a Grills Suite can make the most of complimentary tipples up to the value of $12. This includes Delamotte Champagne, meaning it is certainly an offer worth taking seriously.

So, what journeys boast inclusive drinks?

The Queen Mary 2 cruise that leaves on December 15th to New York features complimentary drinks and the chance to do some last-minute Christmas shopping by making the most of the exchange rate. Balcony stateroom fares, which include flights, start from £1,499 per person.

If you can’t face the idea of being out of the country so close to Christmas, then you can pick one of the two cruises that jet off after the big day itself.

For instance, the Queen Mary 2 leaves New York on January 3rd for Southampton and balcony stateroom tickets – again including flights – cost as little as £1,479 per person.

Your third option is to get aboard the Queen Elizabeth on a four-night cruise from Southampton to Hamburg on January 6th. You’ll only need to part with £569 per person for this opportunity.

Is there a better way to whisk away the January blues than some retail therapy in the Big Apple and a relaxing cruise home with martinis, wine or beer at your disposal? We don’t think so.

Cunard’s marketing director Angus Struthers said: “Our bars and lounges are world renowned so what better way to relax and enjoy the run up to and immediately after the festive season than with Cunard, taking full advantage of our inclusive drinks offer?

“Whether it’s a Transatlantic Crossing on board Queen Mary 2 for some last minute Christmas shopping in New York, or a short relaxing break on Queen Elizabeth this January – we hope this offer will allow our customers to have a wonderful time on board.”

All beers and wine will fit into this category, while a number of cocktails and martinis are also on the menu for $9 or less. In addition, the gratuity on the tipples is covered by this exclusive offer that you won’t want to miss out on.
