Hi everyone, We took a ships tour on Britannia at the weekend, and one thing i always look for before a cruise are bar menus, so i took some photos to share! Most bars seemed to have the same menu, with a different one in the pun (Brodie's) and pool bars. Prices overall seemed pretty reasonable, and with no gratuities added, what you see is what you pay!



Non-alcoholic pool bar menu


Tea menu


Pool bar


Any questions then please ask and I'll see if i can remember!

Just back from Azura and tested one or two of the cocktails and speciality gin drinks and very nice they were, reliving those prices makes me think that I won't be having quite so many on Navigator OTS in October. Someone has posted their drinks prices on our roll call and cocktails seem to be $14 - $17 each with wine by the glass at similar prices and beers at $7.75 per bottle................., ouch.

thanks for taking the time to post these. FYI - the Britannia beer menu is available on the P&O website as a PDF (might be easier to read the tasting notes):

https://carnivaluk.metafaq.com/resou..._Beer_Menu.pdf

Some of the other bar menus also available: https://ask.pocruises.com/help/PO/li...ard/drink_cost

I've not seen the tea pigs menu before (was on Britannia in December 2016). Do you remember where you saw that one?

Were the waiters wearing masks and brandishing pistols? That's daylight robbery!!

Thank you for posting this info, cruisingcouple22. There look to be some new cocktails since our last cruise at the end of 2015 and a price increase, but DD will be overjoyed that her fave is still available.

One of the reasons I like P and O is their drinks prices and no extra taxes and gratuities.

What a wonderful thing to do! Thank you so much for doing this. So many people ask for prices of drinks.

Great to see they seem to have got rid of Lanson (terrible champagne) and replaced it with Tattinger (much much better).

As someone else has mentioned, they are one of the few lines that do not add a service charge to their bar prices - yet........

AND a line on the sign off for "Additional" gratuity.
I got into a debate on Adventure OTS when I had a bottle of beer, and the barman pointed out that I had not given extra.
I told him that he had already got 18% of $7, and how much did he want for twisting a bottle cap half a turn

That's brilliant, much easier to read there, my photos were a bit rushed as the menu was so long and our tour group moved through pretty quick!

The tea pig menu was in most of the bars, that photo was in the crows nest, as well as the cafe areas in the atrium.

This is really helpful, thanks for posting. The wine menu doesn't specify what wine it is ie USA Merlot. we were on Diamond Princess last year and they had two USA Merlot's, one was very good the other one was barely drinkable. Several times I asked for the decent one and the waiter brought the other one, lost count of the number I had to change at the bar.

I notice they have a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, can anyone advise which one it was? On Princess they had Nobilo which was a lovely glass of wine but our group consumed bottles of it and they ran out halfway through the cruise.

That is only the pool bar. The menus for the bars inside are much more comprehensive particularly the glass house.
