If there’s one thing we Brits love more than a bargain, it’s a bargain cruise with a comprehensive drinks package! This has to be the ultimate cruise holiday deal but, is it a realistic goal: are cheap cruises with drinks packages readily available?
Well, one thing here is for certain: there are plenty of drinks packages available from virtually all cruise operators serving the UK market. Naturally, you’ll need to do a little research; like the cruise companies themselves, some drinks packages will suit you more than others. To help you decide, think about yourself and the people you’re travelling with. If you’re a family, you’ll want to make sure that any drinks package also makes provision for the kids – it makes no sense saving money on the adults’ drinks when you find yourself paying through the nose for every single orange juice and cola.
On the other hand, if you’re travelling as a group of adults and you’re keen to keep the party going but, maybe, less keen on sampling some of the more esoteric choices from the wine cellar, then make sure your drinks package is fit for purpose. Alternatively, if it’s just the two of you and you’re looking for an inexpensive gourmet getaway, then you might want to secure a drinks package that gives you access to the premium end of the drinks menu, so that you can really push the boat out!
