You won’t be worrying about your bar tab spiralling out of control, and you actually stand to save money compared to if you bought drinks separately as you go.
The range of drinks included in these bottomless packages also means you can indulge your whims guilt-free, shaking things up with the odd soft drink or cocktail.
Anyone on a cruise lasting at least four nights can take advantage of one of our drinks packages and the self-explanatory ‘Premium Package’ will tick the boxes for most guests.
With this option, you’ll be able to enjoy all drinks priced up to €10.
Heading off on a cruise naturally instills a sense of liberation and this package compliments that feeling of total freedom.
When we say this package is wide-ranging, we really mean it. You’ll be able to order a vast selection of cocktails, wines by the glass, draught and bottled beer, and liqueurs and spirits (although the top-shelf premium brands aren’t included).
Soft drinks are also included so you’ll be able to get hold of cordials, energy drinks, canned sodas, fruit juices and mineral water, as well as coffees and hot chocolate. Admittedly, you’d have a job trying to drink an ice cream, but you can get a cone or cup of the frozen creamy stuff to take away.
These drinks can be consumed in all onboard bars, as well as in the restaurants and self-service buffet areas.
This versatile drinks package will suit most guests, from young families and newly-weds to well-seasoned cruisers.
For youngsters, there’s the ‘Non-Alcoholic Package Child’, available to those aged between 3 and 17. This takes the previous package and swaps out the alcoholic options with alcohol-free cocktails, smoothies and milkshakes; seems like a fair deal to us.
That means they can still order canned soft drinks, the uber-refreshing strawberry slush, mineral water, fruit juices, coffee and hot chocolate, and indeed, the takeaway ice cream in a cone or cup.
While the kids will be delighted by having this kind of freedom and choice, it means the parents can enjoy their time at sea knowing they won’t be greeted with a monster bar bill at the end of the cruise.
Maybe you’re celebrating - be it a big birthday, a landmark anniversary or perhaps your honeymoon - well, you can slap on an extra layer of luxury to your cruise by opting for the ‘Premium Plus Package’.
This time, premium brand spirits are included, as are drinks from the theme bar menus and minibar. That sense of luxury is dialed up with the option of having drinks and food delivered to your room.
Nothing says luxury quite like champagne and you’ll be able to pop open the bubbly for less with a 30 per cent discount on all champagnes.
