Carnival Cruise Line today announced the introduction of its beverage program, Cheers! on cruises from Australia. Previously there was no drink package including alcohol available on Australia cruises. Only a non-alcoholic package was sold on the line’s two local ships.

Cheers! is now available for guests 18 years and older on cruises of seven days or longer departing from Australia through to the end of January 2020, as a trial for the Australian market.

The package includes sparkling wine, domestic and imported wine, beer and hand-crafted cocktails featuring top-shelf brands such as Grey Goose, Hennessy and Patrón. Soft drinks, frozen cocktails and mocktails, non-alcoholic drinks and small bottled water are also included. In addition, it includes discounts for other beverage offerings available onboard, including 25 percent off wines by the glass and spirits outside of the program, beverage seminars and classes and bottles of wine in Nouveau restaurant.

Cheers! retails for AU$119 per person per day on Carnival Cruise Lines' Australia-based ships. The package is available on cruises of seven days or longer and must be purchased for the entire duration of the cruise. It allows for up to 15 alcoholic drinks at a value of up to AU$20 per drink, per person, per 24-hour period during normal operating hours.

All adults in the cabin must purchase the Cheers! program. Carnival reserves the right to refuse service for any reason, and Responsible Service of Alcohol rules apply.

“We had overwhelming demand from our guests looking for the ease and convenience of paying one price for all of their drinks. Offering top-shelf spirits like Grey Goose, Hennessy and Patrón as well as a beautiful selection of domestic and international wines including Prosecco, Cheers! is great value for our guests who appreciate quality beverages,” said Jennifer Vandekreeke, VP and General Manager Carnival Cruise Line Australia.

Cheers! can be booked for existing Carnival cruises and can also be pre-purchased from 1 October 2019 by visiting www.carnival.com.au/cheers or by calling 13 31 94. Travel agents can add the package to a client’s booking by calling 13 31 94 today. It can also be purchased once onboard.
