New to Princess, drink prices

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me the average drink prices aboard Princess?  I am looking for basic drinks such as Rum and Coke and wine by the glass. Also, how much gratuity are added to the drink price?

 

I am trying to weigh the difference between buying the drink package and just buying drinks.

You can bring your own soda on- and can purchase smallish bottles of spirits to be delivered to your cabin. Just a thought if you were trying to save a little...

It takes around 6 to 7 alcoholic drinks per day to break even, assuming you are drinking cocktails or mixed drinks. If you drink straight whiskey may 7 or 8 drinks/day. Beers are around $6.  You would also be able to get most non-alcoholic beverages such as espresso drinks, soda and the like. All beverages, alcoholic and non-alcoholic have an automatic 15% gratuity added to the menu price. The Premium Beverage Package (PBP) price of $69/day includes the gratuity and nothing more is charged on a per drink basis.

The PBP covers all drinks menu priced $12 and under. This is about 95% of all drinks on the ship. Some glasses of wine and some high end single malt whiskeys are priced over $12.

You say it includes espresso drinks. Does it also include espresso and cappuccino.

Coors Light, Bud & Bud Light tall boys are $7.19 incl grats.

Liquor prices will depend on brand used. Make sure that you stipulate the Well or Bar brand if you aren't picky or they will use a more expensive brand and you will be charged accordingly.

Receipts were not provided unless asked for and bar menus were not on most bars......so watch your account.

One thing that I don't see on the wine menu are the small bottles of sparking wine. I don't remember the brand but you could get two glasses out of it. Our last trip on Princess it was about $12, I think.

Korbel is the sparkling wine brand - I don't recall the price but it has always fit within the package in years past
