When you’re ready to choose your cruise drink packages, that might mean you’re at the tail end of your vacation planning. Your itinerary might already be chosen. You might know which friends and family are joining you on sun-soaked Caribbean islands or in stunning European capital cities.
You may know when you’re setting sail for your upcoming cruise vacation, but you may find there are a few more things to think about to make your vacation the best it can be. With cruise drink packages, you’ll pay one set price and not have to think about your drink orders twice during your cruise, providing a worry-free experience at sea.
Before you choose cruise alcohol packages or non-alcoholic drink packages, you’ll want to have plenty of information. Consult this helpful guide as your one-stop shop for the different drink packages available on Celebrity Cruises.
How much are drinks on a cruise?
The great news about drink packages on a cruise is that they vary in cost, with non-alcoholic soda packages starting as low as $9 per day, while an unlimited water package starts at $16 per day.
The important thing to remember is this: cruise drink packages are meant to make your vacation even better. You can choose the package that best suits your tastes and budget.
For example, a cappuccino or specialty coffee from Cafe al Bacio starts at $5. Various beers start at $6 or $7 at most onboard bars, with special deals for buckets. A glass of wine can range between $7 and $15, with items up to $9 included in the Classic Beverage Package.
Since the Classic Package starts at $59 per day, if you order a morning coffee, an orange juice, two beers at the pool, and a glass of wine with dinner for yourself, you’re already paying almost half of the daily fee when you could easily take advantage of an unlimited selection per day of beers, spirits, cocktails, liqueurs, frozen drinks, and wines by the glass, and get 15% off all wines by the bottle with a beverage package.
What types of beverages are available on a cruise?
From sustainable wines by the bottle to sparkling water, morning coffee to iced tea, Celebrity beverage packages hydrate, delight, and surprise our guests day after day. Fresh-squeezed orange juice, chilled fountain sodas, and charming, classic cocktails are all readily available at nearly every onboard restaurant, bar, or venue.
Unique specialty cocktails, martinis, and more are available at each venue on board, like Martini Bar, Craft Social, World Class Bar, and the glamorous Eden Lounge. Try your first banana split martini or a Don Julio Paloma. There are beverages for every taste during your vacation.
Are cruise drink packages worth it?
Ultimately, the guests who find cruise drink packages the most worthwhile are those who don’t want to worry about getting an unexpected bill at the end of the cruise. The convenience of knowing that your drinks are already paid for can help you relax into your well-deserved vacation.
There are special offers, including savings on bottles of wine, with certain packages. Many beverage packages include wine, beer, cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverages, which, if you calculate how much specific drinks cost, may save you money in the long run, especially if you’re interested in sampling exotic liquors or enjoying specialty coffee each morning.
If you are trying to keep an eye on how much you drink, starting with a lower tier drink package is always an option. Keep in mind that you can book your beverage package before your cruise and on embarkation day as well. There may also be savings when you purchase packages in advance.

Just like your neighborhood bar, you’ll discover spots to return to again and again during your cruise vacation. Or, you can take the spontaneous approach and try a new venue each day of your sailing.
During the day, stick by the pool and sip on frozen cocktails at Slush, or try Pool and Mast Bar, which specializes in bar bites and classic drinks. Watch the sunset at the aptly named Sunset Bar, with a relaxing country-club atmosphere, before you head to dinner.
Enjoy live music and entertainment at Ensemble Lounge or the Sky Observation Lounge, designed with spectacular views, quirky astrological cocktails, or the perfect digestif to keep the night going after a delicious dinner at one of our specialty restaurants.
