Disney Cruise Line is known for offering an unforgettable and magical vacation experience for families and individuals alike. One of the highlights of the Disney cruise experience is the variety of food and drinks available on board.
Most of the other major cruise lines have drink packages front and center, but searching the Disney Cruise Line’s website, it’s a hard go to find information about drink packages.
That may be because Disney is a family-oriented cruise where the kiddos’ interests are paramount.
And while they don’t push their alcoholic drinks, they do have plenty of them, and here is what we did find out about drink packages on DCL:
Beverages Included And Not Included In A Cruise On DCL
Beverages included at no extra charge:
- Soft drinks, coffee and tea served during meals.
- Non-alcoholic drinks from the Beverage Station.
- Soft drinks served at Vibe teens-only lounge.
Beverages that incur an additional charge:
- Alcoholic beverages, smoothies, specialty coffees and bottled water served during meals.
- Beer, wine, cocktails, bottled water and non-alcoholic beverages served in lounge areas.
There are no “unlimited alcohol” or “all you can drink” packages onboard Disney Cruise ships. They do have what they consider “packages” that you can purchase both in advance and onboard.
The packages listed below can be found listed on the Disney Cruise Onboard Gifts page.
The wine onboard Disney comes in many varieties, and there are classic, or standard, wines and premium wines.
Wine options will vary by departure port and by the ship’s itinerary.
You can purchase Classic wine or Premium Wine packages in one, three, four, five or seven bottle packages.
As of this writing, Feb 2023, the prices ranged from a low of $38 for one bottle of Classic wine to $316 for a seven-bottle package of Premium wine.
Disney has a variety of beer that includes:
- Corona Blue Moon
- Miller Lite
- Coors Light
- Bud LIght
- Bud Light Lime
The beer comes in a six-pack, and all types of beer brands are at this writing, $33.75.
Beer Mug Package
DCL has a branded beer mug that can be purchased onboard. This decorative mug holds 21 ounces and each time you fill it at any onboard bar, you get a 21-ounce refill of beer at the cost of a 16-ounce size.
Lugging this large mug would get tiring quickly, so if you want, you can just use the beer mug token. The token gets you the same benefits of the mug without having to tote it wherever you go.
Although brands of beers vary depending on the port of call, these beers that you can get in your decorative beer mug may be:
- Bud Light
- Miller Lite
- Stella Artois
- Angry Orchard
- Michelob Ultra
- Samuel Adams
- Blue Moon
- Kona Longboard
- Newcastle Brown Ale
Truly Pineapple and Truly Wild Berry are the two hard seltzer flavors that can be purchased in a six-pack at a cost of $25, at the time of this writing, in the DCL beverage package.
Dasani bottle water packages usually come in 16-ounce aluminum bottles. They will be delivered to your stateroom before your arrival.
You can order water in packages of six, twelve or twenty-four bottles.
Room service will also offer bottled water options when you purchase through them. They may offer a “buy five and get one free” type of offer. If you are interested, make sure to check the room service menu.
OnBoard Tasting Seminars
If tasting various alcoholic beverages appeals to you, DCL gives you that option with a slew of tasting seminars.
Exclusively for adults, these seminars range from Amari, Beer, Bourbon, Champagne, Cognac, Martini and a Chocolate & Liquor Tasting seminar.
There is also a Mixology Class, Mojito & Caipirinha, Rum, Tequila & Margarita Tasting, and last but not least, Whiskey.
