P&O Cruises Drinks Menus

Each P&O Cruises ship will have many different bars and restaurants onboard, and each venue will have different drinks available. The pub, for example, has lots of different beers but a smaller cocktail menu, whereas the cocktail bars have lots of cocktails and a smaller choice of beers.

The following menu is the standard P&O drinks menu and wine list which you’ll find in several places on board P&O Cruises’ ships, such as the poolside bars and the buffet restaurant. As you can see, P&O bar prices are quite reasonable.

P&O Cruises serve kosher and vegan wines. You can ask onboard for more information.

P&O Cruises Costa Coffee menu

Here’s the menu for the Costa Coffee shop on P&O Cruises’ ships. You can also get Costa speciality coffees in many of the other bars and lounges on your ship.

Brodies Pub Drinks Menu

Each ship in the P&O Cruises fleet has a traditional British pub, whether it’s The Rising Sun on Arcadia, Champions Bar on Aurora, The Yacht & Compass on Oceana, The Exchange on Ventura or Brodies on Azura, Britannia and Iona.

Each pub has its own unique character and charm, but all offer an extensive drinks menu and wine list. Below are photos of the drinks menus from Brodies on board Iona:

P&O Cruises’ Wine List

Here is the P&O Cruises’ wine list. It’s available in each of the restaurants as well as selected bars and lounges on each ship.

Crow’s Next Drinks Menu

The Crow’s Nest is an elegant bar located at the very top of the ship. It has an extensive menu with a large choice of cocktails and spirits. The Crow’s Nest is a popular spot to enjoy a nightcap before bed. It’s also a lovely place to go for a pre-dinner drink, especially if you can admire the views before it goes dark.

Anderson’s Bar Drinks List

Iona has its very own gin distillery on board so you can enjoy Marabelle gin that was crafted onboard the ship. Marabelle gin is available in every bar, but here is the menu for Anderson’s Bar and Library which has the largest selection of gins.

More Bar and Lounge Drinks Menus

The other bars and lounges including The 710 Club, The Glass House, Emerald Bar, The Keel and Cow and The Limelight Club each have their own drinks menus too.

I haven’t added them all here, buy they’re of similar size to the other drinks menus so there are lots of different drinks to choose from.

Room Service Drinks List

If you’d like to enjoy a drink in your room or perhaps on your balcony, then the following menu lists the drinks that are available to order via room service:

If you have a drinks package, you should note that room service drinks aren’t included in your drinks package.

You can order full 70cl bottles of spirits including whisky, vodka, gin and rum on room service. This is a good option for anyone doing a longer cruise such as a world cruise.

Mini Bar Drinks

Each cabin also has a mini bar which is replenished daily. The following drinks menu and price list for the mini bar is from a couple of years ago, so the prices have increased slightly in 2022, but this will give you an idea.

Mini bar drinks are also not included in the P&O Cruises drinks package.

Don’t Overpay For Your P&O Cruise!

Here’s how I get the lowest price when I book a cruise…

1. Compare prices from every travel agent in one place.

2. Choose a trusted travel agent with a best price guarantee.

Please don’t book with any old company just because they have a cheap deal. I recommend that you find the best price and then take it to a trusted travel agent who will beat it, as well as giving you the best service.

Can you bring your own alcohol on board P&O Cruises ships?

P&O Cruises allows each passenger aged 18 and over to bring up to 1 litre of alcohol and unlimited soft drinks on board the ship when they embark. If you purchase any more alcohol, either whilst ashore or in the onboard duty-free shop, it will be held in storage until the end of your cruise.

When we sailed on Britannia I took a bottle of gin and my husband took a bottle of rum and we also took several large bottles of lemonade. We were able to buy more lemonade in port and bring it on to the ship. We called our stateroom attendant each evening to request a bucket of ice. After the first few evenings, the ice was waiting for us without having to ask.

The alcohol that you bring on board can only be consumed in your stateroom, but if you enjoy a drink whilst getting ready to go out in the evening, or perhaps a nightcap, then bringing your own drinks on board can be a great way to save money on your cruise.

We saved over £400 by bringing our own drinks, compared to if we had bought the same spirits and mixers individually at bar prices. Plus, they were there in our fridge, which was so convenient.

Worried about your bottle of wine of spirit getting smashed in your case? You can get inflatable bottle protectors on Amazon to prevent that from happening. Sue, you could just wrap your bottles in clothes, but why take the risk?

Do P&O Cruises offer all-inclusive drinks packages?

In 2019, P&O Cruises introduced a drinks package that can turn your cruise from full-board to all-inclusive. P&O drinks packages are available on cruises of five nights or more and much be purchased for every day of the cruise.

10 thoughts on “P&O Cruises Drinks Menus & Prices (2022)”

  1. is a vodka and coke for example one drink or is the spirit and mixer 2 separate drinks please

    • If you have the drink package that’s one drink.

  2. There is a very poor selection of Cocktails on P&O that available in the Package which is disappointing. The limit on number of alcoholic of 15 is not really a problem for most. However saying you can have any drink up to £6.65 then saying all spirits are served as single measures – a very small 25ml is a bit of a swizz when a double – only 50ml, are mostly under £6.95.

  3. I don’t drink alcohol. Can 1 person purchase the non-alcohol and the other the alcohol package?

    • No you can’t sorry, although if you have a medical or religious reason they may make an exception if you call.

  4. I’m by no means a heavy drinker, but I feel the ultimate drinks package is too limited & is more like a standard alcoholic drinks package.
    How can it be the Ultimate drinks package if it only covers a handful of basic on board cocktails? The majority seem to be over.
    Do they enforce the cost for cocktail that costs £7.95?

    • I agree the name doesn’t quite fit. And yes they do as the orders are all taken on an iPad so it’s automatic.

    • Totally agree cocktail selection is miserable and that is most of the fun when on a cruise!

  5. Are the p&o drinks menus 2022 menus?
    Thanks x

    • Yes, they’re from February 2022 on Iona.
