Carnival Jubilee launched last week, marking another major milestone for one of the world’s biggest cruise lines, but with her launch came the news that drinks prices were increasing across many of the most popular bars on the ship.

While there are a handful of brand-new bars on Carnival Jubilee, several venues are returning favourites, making it easy to compare drinks prices with the rest of the fleet.

The Alchemy Bar is one of the more popular spots, serving a wide range of cocktails such as The Remedy, the French Kiss and The Perfect Storm. On Carnival Jubilee, these cocktails are priced at $14, which is $1 higher than at the Alchemy Bar on other ships.

The Java Blue Cafe is another venue with price increases – milkshakes now cost $6.75, which is a price increase of 25%, while bottled water has increased prices by 50% and now costs $2.25.

Broadly across other venues on the ship, including the RedFrog Tiki Bar and any other bars serving beers or wines, price increases are typically between 3-4% – not a huge increase, but still significant if you plan on enjoying plenty of drinks on your cruise.

As it stands, the Cheers drinks package prices remain the same. They were already increased in October 2023, so it’s unlikely they would rise again so quickly.

While these drink price increases are currently exclusive to Carnival Jubilee, guests can expect them to roll out across the fleet in the next couple of months. Typically, when Carnival increases drink prices, it’s phased across the fleet between January and March.
