  1. Could you tell me do you buy the drink package when you board the ship, also is the price of 39.95 plus tax

    • I find you usually get a better deal before the cruise Lyn, sometimes port tax is added onboard depending where you are sailing from.

  2. Is southern comfort included in the drinks package,also Prosecco or cava.

    • Prosecco is but not pink, i am sure Southern Comfort will be if they have it as Disarano and Baileys is which is a similar price point.

  3. Hi looking at price for Pinot Grigio £7.00. Would I be charged for that in full. When other wines are £6.95 which are included in drinks package

    • Yes, its rubbish you cant pay the extra, however they did do a Pinot in the drinks package when I was on in July, there was a good choice of wine

  4. Hi, Do you have the 2023 bar prices? we are traveling on Iona in July and are considering the ultimate drinks package. Also if you have a G&T is that counted as two drinks?

  5. Can you buy an alcoholic drink package and a non alcoholic I drink bug my husband dies not

    • I think you can if you have medical reason, but I would contact them to ask the question.

  6. Is this list all drinks that are availability on the drinks package as I’m a brandy drinker and non on this list

    • I have just updated and added on a lot more drinks to the list

  7. Hi
    I know a gin +tonic is classed as 1 drink and who doesn’t like a good gnt. However I also like a Grey Goose and oj. Is that classed as a cocktail ( screwdriver) or two drinks as they seem to be a bit precious about “selected juices “. I’d hate to fork out £40 x 14 and find one of my fav drinks tips over the £6.95.

    • ooh no idea as not a vodka drinker sorry, but totally get you !

  8. Hi there….we too are travelling on the Iona in July 2023. How soon can copy of the new drinks menu be posted showing exactly what is included in the ultimate drinks package ?


    • Sorry Phillip I am not sure, you would probably be best contacting customer service. Have a great cruise
