Guide To Princess Cruises Drinks Packages

A LOT has changed with Princess Cruise Drinks packages lately as Princess Cruises have introduced the new Premier Package. The Premier Package is higher tier drink package that will sit above the Princess Plus drinks package. I will be honest I am on the fence about this one. However we do use speciality dining but that doesn’t make the numbers work, it’s all the other extras that will make the big difference, and of course we are yet to see how Princess Prizes is going to work, intrigued? Grab a cuppa and scroll on down to check out the in’s and out’s of the new Princess Cruises Drinks Packages and the 2022 changes are?

Also see our Princess Cruises Drinks Bar Menus post, which menus and drinks prices from many of the bars on Regal Princess, these are 2021 prices but will give you a guide.

However, this in my opinion is still great value, especially when you work out cocktails, wine with diner, coffee and water or soft drinks you will drink in a day.
