Royal Caribbean drink prices 2024: Cost and Menu

Royal Caribbean drink prices 2024: On Royal Caribbean cruise ships, drinks may be somewhat costly. For a cocktail, $8 will get you a beer, and $3.50 will get you a Coke.

The good news is that some drinks are complimentary on Royal Caribbean cruises. Additionally, you can purchase one of Royal Caribbean’s all-inclusive drink packages if you’d like to have unlimited drinks.

Examine the Royal Caribbean drink menus to find out how much drinks will cost on your cruise to determine whether the drink package is worthwhile.

Drink Prices at Royal Caribbean in 2024

Compared to other cruise lines, the cost of drinks on Royal Caribbean cruises is in the mid-to-high range. No matter where in the world you cruise, drink prices are expressed in US dollars.

Regretfully, you may be a little let down to discover that drinks on Royal Caribbean ships are slightly more expensive than you would pay in your neighborhood bar if you’re used to P&O Cruises pub prices.

The cost of alcohol aboard Royal Caribbean ships varies slightly according to the ship, with drinks on the more modern ships costing up to $1 more each.

On Royal Caribbean Cruises, How Much Are Drinks?

 

Drink Price
Beer $7.49 (American); $7.99 (Import)
Glass of wine $9.00 – $25.00
Bottled water $2.25
Cocktail $10.00 – 14.00

The following drinks are provided complimentary on Royal Caribbean cruise ships:

  • Tea and coffee
  • Iced tea
  • Hot chocolate
  • Lemonade
  • Flavoured water
  • Water
  • Milk
  • Fruit juices with breakfast

The flavored waters are excellent; they taste more like squash or cordial than pure water. With the variety of complimentary drinks available, most youngsters will be satisfied without having to spend more for mocktails, freshly squeezed juices, or carbonated beverages.

The locations and times of the free drinks vary, but you can find out where to obtain them and when to get them at this link: Guide To Royal Caribbean’s Free Drinks.

In the majority of places, drinking tap water is OK. However, you should only use the water in your stateroom’s bathroom or from water dispensers when using public handwashing stations.

Drink Menus for Royal Caribbean in 2024

Check out these pictures of Royal Caribbean bar menus that I shot while traveling on Anthem of the Seas from Southampton in May 2022 to see a comprehensive breakdown of drink prices. Keep in mind that the costs do differ slightly based on the ship you select as well.

When you receive your bill, an automatic 18% gratuity is applied to the cost of each drink on the majority of cruises, including those leaving from the US.

The gratuity is included in the cost of each drink as listed on the menu on cruises leaving from the UK, which is why the prices on the menu could seem higher.

Since these images of Royal Caribbean drink menus are from the UK, there won’t be an automatic gratuity added.
