Alcoholic beverages requested above this limit are charged at regular menu prices and are subject to RSA.  Drinks can only be purchased one at a time by the guest who has received the package. If multiple drinks are purchased at one time, the most expensive drink(s) (that is $16 or under) will count towards the drink package and the other drink(s) will be charged to the guest’s onboard account. Service is subject to P&O Cruises’ RSA Policy, which includes an ability to restrict service. No refunds will be provided where alcohol service is restricted.
