Brindiamo Drinks Package

Recommended Posts

Personally unless you drink at least two cocktail that are not included in your package or are not offered as 'Cocktail of the Day' each day  I do not think it is worth upgrading. Just pay the extra for any you do have, there are roughly 14 on Brindiamo & just over twenty on Piu gusto.

Certainly all the packages are okay but the whole thing just rests on how much you drink, I only have two glasses of wine with meals and lots of coffee, we get the Intenditore yet I worked out last trip the we just about broke even if I had to pay for it.

I was wondering the same, first Costa cruise this September. 

I've been browsing the list posted by greg2014 looking at the differences between brindiamo & piu gusto. As an example I can get the components of a negroni on the brindiamo package but will they serve me one?

With Costa, the bar staff are fairly flexible but the trick is ordering drinks where possible as sperate items if over the 9 euros limit.

I like shandy but they only add a little lemonade so I buy a beer and a sprite and mix my own to taste, same if a spirit and mixer is over 9 just buy the first then order the mixers after.

As tenpin says  order each component of the drink separately and mix it yourself 🙂 - I have to do this on MSC because I can't get a black russian with coke - I get a glass full of vodka and kahlua - but I can't have the coke to go with it lol 😉

Thank for all the info guys, really looking forward to our upcoming Costa trip. 

We're well used to the foibles of other lines, inc MSC, this board has been invaluable in answering our Costa specific questions.
