P&O Cruises Alcohol Policy, Drinks Prices

Learn about current P&O Cruises alcohol policy and how much cost drinks on P&O Cruises ships (drink prices regularly updated). P&O alcohol policy was changed pretty soon for liquor availability to be consumed in the stateroom. Originally guests could take their own drink but it was also easy to order through interactive TV (room steward delivery) within 24 hours.

In 2011, P and O cruise lines introduced the new Duty Free shops offering good prices and available almost immediately. Very soon though, and not surprisingly, prices went up by 50%, which was still a good deal. This is the reason why it makes sense to take mixers and buy alcohol onboard P&O cruise ships. Our review on the current P and O liquor policy (with the updated list of cruise drink prices) is from the “cruise lines alcohol policies” category in ShipCruise “Alcohol Drinks Packages Menus” section.

P&O Alcohol Policy – drinking age on P and O cruise ships

Passengers must be 18-year old or over to be allowed to purchase or consume alcohol (or to gamble) on board P&O. Guests younger than 18 are not served alcohol. Drinking age is 18 years outside US waters, and in American Waters – 21 years. 16 and 17 years old may be brought cider, wine, or beer to drink with meals in P and O restaurants, only if accompanied by an adult. Alcohol ashore purchased by under 18’s are confiscated at gangway. Government photo identification is sometimes requested – Queensland ‘Adult Proof Age Card’ is accepted, but the older Queensland ‘Card 18+’ version is not.

The list of P and O cruise ships currently in operation includes: (from UK) Adonia, Arcadia, Aurora, Azura, Oceana, Oriana, Ventura, and from Australia – the Pacific Dawn, Jewel and Pearl ships. If you want to read some more about liquor, try the Wikipedia’s alcohol link.

Can I bring alcohol on P&O cruises – alcohol policy 2014-2015

P&O Cruises Alcohol Policy - bringing alcohol onboard P and O cruise shipsHow about bringing liquor at embarkation? According to P and O Cruises, passengers may bring small amounts of alcohol onboard with no amount restriction. However, P&O reserves the right for removing alcohol at gangway should any need arise. The line generally allows reasonable alcohol amounts to be taken for yourself to enjoy in cabin, but taking bottles into lounges or restaurants incurs corkage fees. Note that the charged corkage fees will cost you £11 per item of any size, per occasion.

At embarkation and disembarkation all your luggage, including check-in and hand, will be x-rayed. Passengers have to declare to Customs the amounts of excess alcohol.
Bringing champagne or wine onboard is allowed. If you wish to take champagne or wine onboard for celebrating an event, the bottles’ number will be at port authorities’ discretion. You will be also charged the due corkage fees.

Purchasing liquor from P&O cruise ships’ duty-free shops and while on shore

  • Purchasing liquor in ports of call is allowed. Any purchased ashore alcohol will be collected at gangway, kept safe and returned to you on last day of the voyage.
  • Duty-free liquor products that are sold in P&O ships’ shops will be available only to take home. If you make an order at any time during the voyage via these shops, your orders will be available to collect at the end of cruise.
  • Passengers under 18 will are not permitted to purchase alcohol and may be asked to verify age. It’s prohibited to attempt purchasing alcohol for those who are under 18 in the on board shops.
  • If you want to purchase a bottle of alcohol for consumption in cabin during the voyage, you must make a room service order. The service details are located in the cabin directory.
  • P&O shops offer price guarantee on tobacco and liquor purchases. The line guarantees that her duty-free shop are cheaper than any of the comparable outlets (including shops ashore during your voyage). All you have to do is provide proof of cheaper price from retailers recognised by P&O. Online price comparison is not included. If you have purchased alcohol onboard, the shop will make a refund for the difference back on your onboard account. When you haven’t purchased yet, but have proof of cheaper price ashore, P&O duty-free shops will price match.
  • Free alcoholic beverages are served at P&O ships’ cocktail parties.
  • Duty free shops location by ship: Arcadia (Deck 3); Adonia (Deck 5); Aurora, Azura, Oceana, Ventura (Deck 6); Oriana (Deck 7).

You can share/like/rate our review on P&O Cruises Alcohol Policy and the P&O cruise ships drink prices via the social buttons. The line says, P&O alcohol policy is committed to responsible liquor service. Sometimes the P and O line may consider appropriate to refuse alcohol service to a passenger for any reason. P&O also reserves the right for taking alcohol (when brought on board) at the gangway, and returning to guests at the end of the voyage. The line stated they would implement this alcohol policy only when they consider it likely that comfort, health, and safety of passengers may be compromised. Have a safe and joyful voyage with P&O, and cheers to the cruise fun!
