P&O Cruises Bar Prices and Drinks Packages - All you need to know! (2021)

For those of you that know us we do like a drink and often choose the drinks package or all inclusive option. A lot of cruise lines have gone all inclusive but P&O as yet have not.

To help you budget and plan what you are going to spend, in this post we cover what drinks actually cost on board and what is included in the four different drinks packages.

It is also important to know that with P&O you can take alcohol on board, only on embarkation. Each passenger can take a 1 litre bottle maximum of wine, bubbly or spirits. Soft drinks can also be taken on board with which there is no limit.

All prices in this post were correct at March 2020 when we cruised on the Oceana Cruise Ship. We are cruising on the brand new P&O cruise ship Iona in August and are very excited about that!

The Ultimate Drinks Package

For £39.95 pp per day you can have any drinks up to the value of £6.95 and 20% off drinks over this. This package also includes small bottles of water (500mls) but not large bottles of water. You can only order singles and not double measures, wine is only by the glass, not by the bottle, only one drink per person can be ordered at one time and there is a maximum of 15 drinks per day.

Another bonus is that if you are travelling with Children under 17 the Children’s Package will be included. The Children’s Package includes unlimited draught soft drinks, small hot chocolates and selected juices.

Stipulations are that each adult in the same cabin must purchase the drinks package, and the package is only available for cruises of five nights or over. Drinks in the mini bar are not included.

Mixers are all draught, or if cans and bottles are used then they are opened when you receive the drinks.

Non Alcoholic Package

For £19.95 you can have unlimited draught soft drinks, selected mocktails and juices, Costa coffees, teas and hot chocolate. 20% discount is applied to large bottles of water and premium soft drinks.

In addition to alcoholic drinks the same exclusions apply as above.

The Children’s Drink Package
