First time cruisers

Help...mum and I are going on our first cruise in November. 20 nights on the Crown Princess. We are trying to decide whether to buy the top beverages package as we normally go all inclusive on holidays. Can anyone please give me an idea of the average price for things like ...a latte coffee, a cocktail, a glass of wine, a spirit and mixer, an iced coffee and a soda. Many thanks in advance for any replies. We aren't heavy drinkers but I don't think a scotch before dinner, a glass of wine with dinner followed by a couple of cocktails is too outrageous lol plus a few coffees and sodas during the day.

I think it depends on the cruise line. I get the non-alcoholic beverage package, which runs about $50, but the drinks are unlimited.

Well I’m going to tax my memory here. Princess sells a coffee card for around $30. It gives your unlimited brewed coffee at the international Cafe and 15 specialty coffees. I think the specialty coffees run around 3.95. Wine is 8 to 10 dollars a glass. Spirits are 9 to 11 dollars. Depending on the cocktail they run 9 to 13. These are rough estimates hope it helps.

Welcome to our the site and I must give you a warning. Cruising can be extremely addictive. Enjoy your cruise!

Thank you both very much for the advice. So excited lol Big Smile

Welcome. Enjoy your drinks and food.

Thank you both....sure I will have more questions Wink

Wish that I could help you out with prices but I never take the beverage packages. We just drink a glass or two with dinner. I have been on the Crown Princess and she is a lovely ship. Enjoy your cruise and welcome to the site.
