Princess Cruises free beverages, with a catch

Princess Cruises free beverages and dining package for 2016 has been announced. It’s called Sip & Sail, but watch out! There’s a catch.

Guests booking a balcony, mini-suite or suite stateroom will receive what the line calls ‘a free all-inclusive beverage package’ for two people. In addition to this, guests booking a mini-suite or suite stateroom will also receive free specialty dining for two people.

The Princess Cruises free beverages package includes soda, juices, shakes and floats, bottled water, cocktails, spirits, wines, beers, and specialty coffees and tea. However, the free beverage list does not apply to all drinks available on board, only those with a retail value of $10 or less. Beverages over $10 aren’t included in the package. Also, room service beverages are excluded. Only beverages purchased at bars, public lounges and dining venues qualify.

Additionally, full bottles of wine below $100 retail can be purchased in the bars, dining room or in stateroom at 40% discount from the menu price.

The Sip & Sail package applies to more than 350 cruise vacations throughout 2016. CruiseOyster think the Princess Cruises free beverages package is a good offer, just be sure you’re not caught out paying for top-shelf beverages that aren’t included.

      Hi Nicola,
      Princess Cruises tell us the new Sip & Sail packages are available on over 350 cruises next year. We’re assuming that means it does apply to most, if not all, their sailings. Hope this helps.
      Team CruiseOyster.

      • We have been told that this is not available for Australian cruisers but we are Australians traveling on an American cruise ship.

          Hi Katherine, we understand it’s available to residents of the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Bermuda. If you are not resident in these countries then we always recommend getting in touch with the cruise line directly to see in you can come to another arrangement.
