5 reasons why our new drinks packages hit the spot


P&O Cruises is giving you even more reasons to say cheers for World Cocktail day with our refreshing new drinks packages, which can be used in all the restaurants, bars and cafés on board. So, what’ll it be?

To help you tailor your holiday just the way you like it, P&O Cruises has created three drinks packages that offer unbeatable choice and value. Each is available on any holiday of five nights or more and you can use your package in all the restaurants, bars and cafés on board.

Not sure if a drinks package is right for you? Here are five reasons to think otherwise.

1. They’re good value

You’re spoilt for choice with the sheer variety of drink and refreshment options on board. With the Ultimate drinks package, you can enjoy unlimited non-alcoholic drinks and an incredible array of beers, single-measure spirits, cocktails and wines by the glass up to £6.95 as listed on our menus, for just £39.95pp per day. You can start the day with a Primo Costa coffee, sip a soft drink as you lounge by the pool mid-morning, savour a mocktail with lunch, relax and recharge with a teapigs™ tea in the afternoon, sip a glass or two of wine with dinner and treat yourself to a G&T as the sun goes down. To open up even more possibilities, you also get a 20% discount on drinks over £6.95 – ideal for that special celebratory bottle of Champagne.

2. You can pay for the packages with on-board spending money

Got some on-board spending money to use? Why not put it toward your drinks package? Plus, you can use your loyalty discount when purchasing a package. The discount will be applied at point of purchase on board.

3. They're great for families

When creating our drinks packages, we kept the whole family in mind. With the Children’s drinks package, younger ones can enjoy all the drinks they love for just £7.95pp per day – that’s unlimited draught soft drinks such as lemonade and cola, plus selected juices and small hot chocolates. And if you purchase the Ultimate drinks package and you’re travelling in the same cabin with children 17 and under, their package is included without charge. You can also buy the children’s package without buying a package for yourself.

4. They make life on board even easier

Purchasing a drinks package means you know exactly what you’re spending on drinks every day. Nearly every drink is included, so you can try something new riskfree – say yes to an intriguing new cocktail or simply sip your usual as you drink in the magnificent views. And getting your drinks on board couldn’t be easier: a colourcoded sticker will be placed on your cruise card when you buy a package, which you show to the crew members taking your order.

5. There’s something for everyone

Traditional pubs, cosy cafés, elegant wine bars, atmospheric cocktail lounges, convenient poolside bars… whatever you’re in the mood for, we’ve got it, so why not tailor your refreshment to how you like to spend your time?

  • The Ultimate drinks package (£39.95pp per day) covers all standard serve drinks up to £6.95 per serving, and a Children’s package is included too
  • For £19.95pp per day, the Non-alcoholic drinks package lets you take your pick from a huge range of refreshing soft drinks, from a poolside mocktail to a primo Costa coffee
  • The Children’s drinks package at £7.95pp per day (also included with the Ultimate package) gives children unlimited soft drinks
