P&O Cruises Bar Prices and New Drinks Packages - All you need to know for 2023

UPDATED MAY 2023

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. We also have drinks prices and packages posts for Virgin VoyagesRoyal Caribbean, Azamara, Cunard and Marella which may be of interest to you too.

Here we break down the drinks prices and you will find whats included in the new Drinks Packages upgraded in May 2023 towards the end of this post. Please note there are no service charges on any of the drinks on P&O.

We also have a full review of our time on P&O Iona here too.

Drinks Packages

P&O announced their new drinks packages on May 18th 2023 – here are the updated packages –

Drinks Packages are available on cruises of 5 nights or longer and cannot be purchased on  a ‘per day’ basis. Packages may be purchased in advance of a cruise or during the first two  days onboard. Packages purchased on board are non-refundable. All adults in the same cabin  must purchase the same Package. All Packages are limited to 15 drinks in any 24-hour period. 

The Refresh Package

£9.85 pppd pre-bought or £10.95 pppd if bought onboard.

Packed with fizz, punch and zing, fantastic all-day refreshment is at your fingertips, whenever you fancy. Includes R.Whites Lemonade, Pepsi and juices. If you’re travelling with children 16 years and under and you choose either a Classic or Deluxe drinks package, the Refresh drinks package is included at no extra cost which is good to see.

The Alcohol Free Package

£22.45 pppd pre-bought or £24.95 pppd onboard.

Our Alcohol-free package includes everything from the Refresh package, plus selected Costa Coffee, teapigs™ and a wide range of superb soft drinks. Includes big bottles of water 330mls too.

The Classic Drinks Package

£40.45 pppd pre-bought or £44.95 pppd onboard.

The Classic drinks package includes everything from the Refresh and Alcohol free drinks packages, plus an array of refreshing spirits, wines and classic cocktails, exclusive Marabelle Gin and Golden Tide Rum with your mixer of choice. Includes large bottles of water 33omls, selected Costa Coffee & Teabags, Prosecco 125mls, and selected wines 175mls and 25mls spirits.

If you’re travelling with children 16 years and under and you choose either a Classic or Deluxe drinks  package, the Refresh drinks package is included at no extra cost.

The Deluxe Drinks Package

£49.45 pppd pre-booked or £54.95 pppd onboard.

The Deluxe drinks package includes the same selection as all our other packages and the following – Full range of Costa Coffee and Tea Pigs, extended range of cocktails, craft beers, range of 250ml wines and some 50ml spirits.

As mentioned above we look forward to finding out exactly what cocktails and limitations there are with the Deluxe Drinks Package and will include this information as it becomes clear on the sailings this starts on soon.

On the previous drinks packages cocktails costing under £6.95 were included but this is no longer the case,(P&O no longer list any cocktails costing less than £6.95) bar menu’s will be marked with a (C) for the classic package and (D) for the deluxe package, as we gather more information we will update this post accordingly.

With the information we currently have it seems that all double measures of spirits (50ml) and all large glasses of wine (250ml) will only be available on the Deluxe package or on a pay as you go basis.


Everyone is different, and only you will know if the drinks package is good value for you or not.  Now you have the individual prices and costs of the packages you will be able to make an informed choice.

We hope we have found this post useful, and now know whether a drinks package would be for you.
