Here is our ultimate guide to Celebrity Cruises Drink Packages And Bar Menus. All ready for your next Celebrity Cruise in 2023-2024. Readers often message us asking about all-inclusive drinks packages and menus. Hey, we parents are entitled to have a drink too, right?
Of course it’s not only alcoholic drinks packages we need to consider, it’s also which drinks packages? Do you want a wine package, or indeed a soft drink package?
Celebrity Cruises offer lots of choice in their offering of drinks packages, and I have used my experience cruising with Celebrity Cruises, but I also scrolled through and read LOTS and asked many questions to bring you the latest up-to-date information. Occasionally there are Celebrity offers so keep your eyes peeled.
The Ultimate Guide To Celebrity Cruise Drink Packages
Where Can I Get Drinks Packages On Celebrity Cruises?
The best time to purchase your drinks packages is online before your cruise. Additionally, keep an eye out for special offers as Celebrity does send out email offers occasionally. However, you can also purchase a package or upgrade your package at any bar whilst on board.
On our last cruise, I booked the Classic Drinks Package but was unsure if I would prefer the Premium Drinks Package. The classic did not have Pellegrino included, and I was worried I might not like the wine.
Eventually, I made the decision that I would upgrade should I feel the need to once onboard. I am glad I decided, as the Classic Drinks package on Celebrity Cruises was perfectly fine. There was canned soda water which was a great alternative to sparkling water and the wine was lovely.

Commonly Asked Questions About Celebrity Cruises Drinks Packages
Are The Celebrity Cruises Packages Worth The Money?
If you look at the menus below you will be able to work out if the packages are good value for you.
As a rough example
- Wine $9 a glass x 3 with dinner = $27
- Soft drinks $4 a glass x5 = $20
- cocktails $9 x3 = $27
- Coffee ( you can also get in take-out cups) $5 x3 = $15
A grand total of $89.00 and that’s working on the classic drinks package prices. When we have this conversation with people they always rank the drink package value against the amount of alcoholic drinks they drink. However, it makes sense to also factor in speciality coffees, soft drinks and water if you intend to drink those too. Also, scroll to the bottom to see our drinks calculator.
Is Prosecco Included In The Celebrity Cruises Drink Packages?
Yes, certain brands of prosecco are included within the drinks packages.
Can You Use Your Celebrity Drinks Package In The Restaurants?
Yes, you can order drinks from your Celebrity Cruises drink packages in the restaurant. Being a wine drinker we thought we would need an additional wine package. However, we drank wine in all of the restaurants we dined in, and just like a package it was kept in a bucket near our table and refilled regularly.
We were also able to order beer and soft drinks in the restaurant as part of our package.
Does Everyone In Our Stateroom Need To Buy A Drink Package?
All guests wishing to purchase a Drink Package must do so for all guests of legal drinking age in the same cabin. Uk age 18 plus, US, age 21 plus. Additionally if one guest upgrades to the premium package all guests must upgrade.
What Is The Celebrity Cruises Drinks Package Limit?
There is officially no limit, although a member of staff can refuse to serve anyone they deem intoxicated to an unacceptable level.
Can You Take Wine On A Celebrity Cruise Ship?
Yes, you are able to bring 2 bottles of wine onboard per cabin on embarkation day only, however, this will be subject to a corkage fee unless you drink it in your cabin.
Does The Celebrity Drink Package Include Gratuities?
Gratuities are charged at a rate of 20% at the time of ordering your drinks package, so yes, you do pay them, but up front and against the price of the package, rather than the value of the drinks you consume.
What happens if I purchased the Premium Beverage Package and the beverage I would like is more than $17?
If you have the Premium Beverage Package or the Drinks and More Beverage Package and you would like a beverage that was more than $17 then you would simply pay the extra.
Can I Use My Drink Package At Labadee or CocoCay?
