Does that include a drinks package?

Over the last few years one of the most commonly asked questions is “are drinks included in that”? or “how much is a drinks package”? In the day there was no such thing as a drinks package but as each cruise line introduces it other cruise lines feel the need to also include. Some cruise lines, such as NCL have tried to add drinks as standard but this was soon retracted after a negative response, not everyone wants a drinks package, and where it says free or already included you know the price of the drinks package is somewhere in the costing.

P&O are the latest to introduce a drinks package after a short and successful trial.

Now Princess cruises have just announced their decision to includes their beverage package on nearly 250 Caribbean cruises. Cruisers will get up to $1500 onboard spending money per stateroom and drinks when booking a Caribbean cruise. The deal is available from 2nd July to the 31st, on six of the line’s ships departing from 1st December 2019 to 22nd May 2021.


Guests one and two in the cabin, can take advantage of an all-inclusive drinks package which includes cocktails, speciality coffee, tea, wine, beer and premium spirits. Any additional cabin guests will receive a package comprising mocktails, smoothies, fruit juices, hot chocolate, coffee and tea and soft drinks. The Premium Beverage package is normally priced at $59.99 per person, so quite the saving.
