P&O drinks prices and packages

Recommended Posts

I agree that standards have and are continuing to drop, although I’ve no idea why.  I imagine it’s right across the cruise industry. Does anyone have any idea which cruise lines are still operating with high standards?

Standards are generally set by the passengers, when cruising was limited to the rich they set the standards, as it has become more affordable to much wider sectors of society, so the median point of "standard " has lowered.  But that does not mean that the enjoyment of being well fed and entertained whilst being transported around the world has diminished;  but higher luxury does come at a much higher price, however your drinks package will probably be included.

We plan to buy the package on our Britannia cruise in April. 

 

£39.95 x 2 = £79.90 x 13 = £1038.70

- obc £270 = £768.70 

£384.35 for 2 = £29.56 pppd

 

For us this would be good value - cocktail round pool/beer with lunch/ 2 drinks before dinner/2 with dinner/1/2after dinner/water/soft drinks/coffee

 

of course you don’t have to use obc but I choose to offset the cost of the package this way. I pay for speciality restaurants/trips in advance so apart from what I buy in the shop it’s mostly on drink

 

Thank you for that its exactly the information I was looking for.

I have not read all the posts on this thread, so the answer may have already been given. do the Drinks' Packages include Bar Operatives and Wine Waiters tips? If so, I wonder how the money is allocated? If not, then some of the calculations may need amending. Can the bottles bought be drunk say, partly with a meal and finished in a more peaceful place?

Tips will shortly be included in the fare so no tipping will be necessary. Once you've bought your drink you can take it where you like.

Does anybody know if the frozen non alcoholic cocktails are included in the non alcoholic drinks package.

We know Mocktails are included.

We are on our first P and O cruise in January, on Britannia.

Thanks for any responses.

Do you no if you can get the drink package on a 2 night cruise.. I am thinking of going on the Ventura next June from Southampton it’s for 2 nights if the drink package isn’t available on the short cruise I’m not sure I would be interested..

thank you

No, drink packages are only available on cruises of 5 nights and over.
