DRINKS PACKAGE TERMS & CONDITIONS:
Minimum age: 18 to consume alcoholic drinks
The all-inclusive Drinks Package is for the sole use of those on the package and the all-inclusive cabin card must be presented each time a drink is required – without exception (it’s the same system if you ‘purchase’ a drink on your account without a package!).
Drinks within package are only available during bar/restaurant opening hours.
Only one drink per card may be ordered and this must be consumed before further drinks are requested (for obvious reasons!)
Draught products are only available in selected bars and not in the restaurants or cafés as not all the facilities have ‘pumps’.
Canned beers and ciders will be served opened for consumption.
Fred.Olsen reserves the right to refuse service to any guest deemed intoxicated and in breach of safety regulations to themselves or others.
Any infringements to the above Terms & Conditions may result in the package being withdrawn.
