Cruise holidays are a perfect opportunity to kick back and relax. Part of this opulent offering is famously the food, with cruise liners home to multiple restaurants and bars for guests to indulge in.
However, while the food offering is usually included in the ticket price, many lines still make passengers pay for alcohol separately.
This can result in an unexpectedly high fee at the end, particularly for those who like a tipple.
Luckily, ex-cruise worker Brian David Bruns revealed that there is a way passengers can ensure they have a glass of wine with their evening meal without breaking the bank.
Speaking to Inside Edition, he explained: “At the beginning of a cruise if you want to buy a bottle of wine, you don’t have to worry about downing the whole wine that meal.

“They will return the wine to you night after night.”
Passengers who know they enjoy a poolside cocktail or a glass of bubbly at the end of the day could also benefit from paying for drinks included ticket, though it should be noted they are often at a heightened price.
Simon Hoe, Global Head of Marketing at Cruise1st told Express.co.uk: “When it comes to drinks, consider buying an inclusive drinks package online before you board.
“You tend to save a bit more, and you’ll skip the queues to boot.”
