Default drink prices

my husband and I are going on the Grand princess for our first cruise ever on Oct 19,
can you give us an idea about how much drinks cost? We heard about the soda card but were wondering about mixed drinks , beer and / or wine. Thanks in advance.

I would say normally 4-5 bucks per alcoholic beverage with beer being about 2.00-2.50 per beer. They do normally have a drink of the day which is about 3.00 which is changed daily. The soda card is about 20 bucks pp and is good for the whole cruise. We normally get the drinks of the day but they are normally fruity type drinks, coconut, bananas, oj, pineapple etc from my experience.

The prices are about the same as in a bar in a nice restaurant. There is always a daily special if you are flexible on mixed drinks. On average a beer is $3-4. wine is about $4 per glass and up. Mixed drinks start at about $3.50 and go up to about $8 for most common mixed spirits. Most well drinks are around $5 or so. Bottled wines usually are priced from about $20 per bottle and up. Often a decent bottle of wine is about $30. Usually the bottled wine is about two to two and a half times the retail price in a wine store.

I think these guidelines are fairly accurate.

Hi Ruthie
We will be cruising with you on the Grand on the 19th. Had the same type questions, so thanks for the post! With those prices, smuggling is sounding like the way to go..


Until Then....
