The Ultimate Guide To Celebrity Cruises Drink Packages
Where Can I Get Drinks Packages On Celebrity Cruises?
The best time to purchase your drinks packages is online before you cruise. Additionally, keep an eye out for special offers as Celebrity do 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 may not like the wine.
Eventually I made the decision that I woulds upgrade should I feel the need to once onboard. I am glad I made this decision, as the Classic package was perfectly fine. There was canned soda water which was a great alternative 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 $3 a glass x3 = $9
- Bottle of water $3 x 4 = $12
- cocktails x2 = $18
- Speciality coffee ( you can also get in take out cups) $6 x3 = $18
A grand total of $84.00 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.
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 drinkers 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 drink in the restaurant as part of our package.
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.
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.
How Much Are Alcoholic Drinks On Celebrity?
Drinks on Celebrity Cruises vary in price, check out the bar menus below for a list of alcoholic and soft drink prices.
Celebrity Cruises Drinks Menus
Celebrity Edge Drinks Menus
These bar menus from the Celebrity Edge offer great examples of what is available in each drinks package in terms of price point.
Celebrity Edge Eden Cocktail Menus
And here is a selection of cocktails available in the Eden Bar onboard Celebrity Edge.
Celebrity Silhouette Drinks Menus
These is the menu from the martini bar onboard Celebrity Silhouette. As you can see the prices are outside of the classic drinks package. On occasion I ordered a martini and charged the extra over $9.
You can also order wines, beers and spirits from the martini bar.
I hope that helps, in my opinion the drinks packages are great value and not just for the alcohol but also to keep you hydrated throughout your cruise. They are not for everyone, but for us, and for the boys they work out great value and also easy.
