Tui River Cruises Drinks Package

The All-inclusive Drinks Package costs £126 per person, per week. £18 per person, per day is very good value if you enjoy a drink or two.

This drinks package includes a selection of wines, beers and ciders, cocktails, branded spirits and aperitifs, premium coffees from the Club Lounge and a range of soft drinks.

Like many other cruise drinks packages, you cannot buy the drinks package for one person in your booking, everyone in your cruise booking will need to purchase the drinks package. This prevents passengers sharing a drinks package.

When you are onboard, the Tui River Cruises drinks package can be used for alcoholic drinks from 10.00am to midnight. Soft drinks are available at any time.

How do you add the Tui River Cruise All-inclusive Drinks Package?

You can add the drinks package at the time of booking, later in time before your cruise (by calling 0203 451 2688) or when you get onboard.

What Drinks are Included in a Tui River Cruise?

It’s important to be aware that soft drinks, tea, coffee, beer and wine is included in your cruise fare during mealtimes. This means that you don’t pay extra if you order these drinks with your meals. It doesn’t include cocktails and spirits.

Each cabin on a Tui River Cruise has tea and coffee making facilities and there is a complimentary hot drinks station in the Atrium.

Once on each river cruise, there is a buffet Afternoon Tea in the Observatory Lounge.

Does Tui River Cruises have a Happy Hour?

Yes, Happy Hour is every evening from 6.00pm to 7.00pm in the ship’s Observatory Lounge. During this time you can enjoy discounted drinks.
