What are the drinks prices like on the Crown Princess sailing from Southampton this year?


On all cruises from Southampton and at all bars throughout the ship, the currency is in US dollars. Prices vary depending on which type of wine, beer or spirit you buy, but you can expect to pay an average of around $5.00 for a beer, $7.50 for a glass of wine and $7.00 for a cocktail. A soft drinks package for around $6.00 a day is a good way to purchase beverages for mixers and it’s important to remember that there’s a 15 per cent service charge added for each drink that you buy. You are permitted, however, to bring one bottle of wine aboard per passenger, of no larger than 750ml, for consumption in your stateroom. If you do want to drink your own wine in one of the public dining areas or bars, you’ll incur a corkage fee of $15.
