Drinks packages, speciality dining and shore experiences


Drinks packages

Our drinks are competitively priced and we offer a variety of drinks packages including alcoholic beverages, mocktails, Costa Coffee and teapigs™ tea. Each package is available on any holiday of five nights or more and can be used in all the restaurants, bars and cafés on board. And if you opt for our Ultimate drinks package, we’ll include the Children’s package at no extra cost. So, what’ll it be?

Speciality restaurants

Each ship offers a variety of restaurants, from chic and special to fresh and informal, contemporary flavours and some served with entertainment. So much is included in the price of your holiday and for those that charge a little extra, you’ll find exquisite dining at a fraction of the price you’d pay on a land-based holiday. For example, mains in The Glass House start from £4.50.

Shore experiences

Why not try one of our hand-picked shore experiences? We can help you maximise your time ashore and make the most of each destination whether that’s seeing the highlights or getting off the beaten track.

You could pick a cookery class in Italy, a helicopter ride over Barbados or a tuk-tuk ride through Croatia... we’ve something for everyone.





Pamper yourself in Oasis Spa, a quiet escape where you can enjoy some well-deserved me time. Facilities vary by ship but you could sink into hydrotherapy pools and thermal suites or perhaps relax alfresco at The Retreat, our exclusive outdoor spa terrace. Maybe you’ll treat yourself to a soothing massage or refreshing facial? You’re on holiday after all.

Fitness classes

Fitness classes are a fun way to exercise and meet people, and our experienced instructors will make sure you go the extra mile! Enjoy Pilates and yoga classes or pick up the pace with a spin class or boot camp session. If you’re just starting out, our personal trainers can create a bespoke fitness plan for you to follow during your cruise.

Hair and beauty

Whether you fancy a full makeover or a one-off treatment, our skilled salon staff will create the look you’re after. We also offer massages and waxing, a luxurious wet shave at the barbers, manicures, pedicures and blow dries. You could even treat yourself to a trim or brand-new hairstyle for your holiday.
