Years ago, when you went on a cruise, you could expect to find the same standard drinks at every venue. A daiquiri, pina colada, maybe a mojito if they were being adventurous with their menus. Today, you’ll find a much more vast collection. Craft beers, premium spirits, carefully crafted cocktails, it’s a whole new game. Carnival cruise, in particular, diversified their drink offering and has a custom drink menu for almost every bar on their ships. That’s pretty impressive, considering that a ship can have 10 – 15 bars.
If you want to see if the Carnival unlimited drink package (called Cheers) might be good for you. You can also learn more about the Cheers package here.

You’ll find this menu on the Carnival Panorama where the Heroes Tribute Bar replaces the SkyBox Sports Bar.
