A world of drinks.

On board a Cunard Queen you will find an enticing selection of international premium brands and vintages from around the globe. Whether you are starting the day with an illy coffee, making the most of the sunshine on deck with a classic cocktail or getting ready for a night out on board, Cunard offers a wide variety of bars and lounges to suit your tastes.


  • Q:
    How much are the drinks on board?

    The prices of drinks on board are similar to London hotels, restaurants and bars. Our spirits are available in a choice of 1oz (29.6ml) or 2oz (59.1ml) measures and there is an enhanced premium mixer offering.

    Alternatively, purchase one of our drinks packages or wine collections before you sail, so you don't have to worry about paying the bill once on board.

    In staterooms there is a minibar and room service menu available 24 hours.

    A 15% service charge is automatically added to your purchases, shared amongst the beverage staff. Naturally, you are free to tip any member of the crew over and above these amounts, at your discretion.

  • Q:
    Do you offer vegan/vegetarian wine on board your ships?

    Yes, we do offer vegan/vegetarian wines on board Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth.

    All wines are subject to change and availability.

  • Q:
    What is the Cunard Wine Academy?

    The Cunard Wine Academy is an all-sensory experience of food and wine pairings, tastings and producer master classes. The unparalleled expertise of the sommeliers combined with an approachable style make the wine tasting courses both highly enjoyable and informative for those with no previous experience to the serious wine aficionado.

    The Academy runs a variety of courses and each programme is bespoke to each cruise. Examples are:

    • Lunch and Learn: Expert sommeliers from the Queens Grill guide guests through a chosen topic as they tuck in to a delicious four course lunch at the fine dining restaurant, The Verandah.
    • Tutored Tastings: The Chief Sommelier and his team, guide guests through a range of wines while educating them on a chosen topic, from the world's major wine regions, grape types and styles.
    • Fine Wine Seminars: Experts from the Queens Grill use state-of-the art-visual equipment and Riedel Glassware to showcase a minimum of 8 wines from the wine list and around the world accompanied by small dishes to complement the wines. Spaces are limited to 10 guests.
    • Wine Masterclasses: Leading wine experts and producers host tutored tastings and dinners on everything from wine to Sake. This year masterclasses will be held with George Sandeman - Sandeman Port, Beatriz Cabral de Almeida - Chief Wine Maker of Quinta dos Carvalhais, Zoe Warrington - Magill Estate Ambassador of Penfolds, Miho Komatsu - Global Brand Manager of Akashi-Tai Sake and Alvi Van De Merwe - Partner and Winemakder of Alvi's Drift.
