Cunard Drinks Prices and Packages - How much do they cost? (Updated September 2023)

We cruised on the Cunard Queen Elizabeth Cruise Ship twice in 2021 on Queen Victoria in 2022 and on Queen Mary 2 in 2022 and 2023 and often get asked ‘How much do the drinks cost on Cunard?’ and ‘Do Cunard have Drinks Packages?’.

With those questions in mind we have put together this post showing how much drinks cost on board the Cunard fleet and cost of Drinks Packages on board. We also have drinks prices and packages posts for P&ORoyal Caribbean, Virgin Voyages and Marella which may be of interest to you too.

Read on and find out how much your drinks will cost on Cunard and then you will be able to see if purchasing a drinks package would be a good option for you.
