What is the price for individual drinks on board?
Sample of beverage prices -
prices and product availability are subject to change without notice. 

  • Beer: starting at $6.50 (mostly 16-ounces)
  • Wine by the glass: starting at $9.50

I understand there is a maximum of 15 drinks a day for the CHEERS! program. With the enhanced program, do non-alcoholic drinks count toward this total?
Sodas and other applicable non-alcoholic beverages remain unlimited and will not be counted toward the 15 alcoholic beverages limit, and all other policies and procedures remain the same. Guests are expected to enjoy alcohol responsibly and staff members are trained not to serve guests who appear to be intoxicated.

Do you have procedures in place that keep guests from drinking too much?  
Carnival has a number of procedures in place to monitor guests’ alcohol consumption and bartenders are trained to look for signs of intoxication and will discontinue serving guests who appear to be intoxicated. Certain flags have been built into the system that are designed to monitor guests’ alcohol consumption and encourage responsible use of the program.

Does the package have to be purchased for the entire week or can it be purchased on a daily/a la carte basis?
The beverage package can only be purchased for the entire voyage at a rate of $59.95 USD per person, per day plus 18% service charge, via Carnival’s website and $64.95 USD per person, per day plus18% service charge, if purchased once on board. 

Why aren’t full bottles of wine and champagne included in the enhanced program?
The program allows guests to purchase drinks on an individual basis at a convenient flat rate and not purchase multiple drinks at one time or bottles of wine and champagne. The program does include a feature that allows guests to purchase full bottles of wine and champagne at a 25 percent discount.

I don’t drink alcohol. Am I still able to purchase the Bottomless Bubbles all-inclusive soda program?
While guests who purchase the enhanced CHEERS! program receive all of the benefits of the Bottomless Bubbles program, CHEERS! does not replace the Bottomless Bubbles soda program which continues to be available to children at a cost of $6.95 USD per person, per day and adults at a cost of $9.50 USD per person, per day plus 18% service charge, Please note: If one guest (21 or older) in a stateroom purchases CHEERS!, then each adult assigned to the same stateroom must also purchase the program.
