P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “We have introduced these drinks packages following direct feedback from our guests. They add even more value for guests on our cruises and can help with the all important holiday budgeting too. With a vast range of drinks included, our guests will be spoilt for choice and can try new wines, artisan gins or cocktails, for example, which they would not normally have at home.”
Drinks packages should be purchased during the first two days of the cruise. Loyalty discounts will be applied when purchasing a drinks package. Full terms and conditions of the offers will be available on board and online. Guests who purchase the ‘Ultimate Drinks Package’ are also entitled to a 20% discount on a variety of other soft drinks, mixers, bottles of wine or other drinks which are not included in the package.
