New Star Wars Cruise Ship Bar Includes a $5,000 Cocktail – IGN
The Hyperspace Lounge aboard the Disney Wish cruise ship is serving the “rarest” and most “valuable” cocktail from the Star Wars galaxy, but it’ll set you back $5,000.
The big-ticket beverage appeared in a video on social media, showing exactly what you’ll be getting for all of those credits. The drink arrives at the table encased inside a camtono (the security container used for storing valuables in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett) and is unveiled with a touch of a button and a twist of the rotary cylindric handle.

Much like the prop used on-screen, the carrier’s side panels fall open granting the recipient access to the contents of the container. Inside, there appear to be three shot-style glasses serving the $5,000 concoction, officially known as the Kaliburr Crystal on the Hyperspace Lounge menu, per MickeyBlog.com, which doesn’t actually list the ingredients.
People have been speculating about what might be in the cocktail for its hefty price tag. FanByte pointed out that one popular hypothesis is Remy Martin’s Louis XIII cognac, which typically costs $3,000-4,000 a bottle, or some other high-quality liquor, though it’s also possible that it’s a more standard top-shelf liquor being presented in a novelty way.
If you’d rather keep hold of your credits, there are plenty of regular-priced drinks on the cocktail menu at Hyperspace Lounge, starting at $15 for a Spire Sunset that contains a refreshing mix of Saigon Bagur, Kamquat, lychee, and coconut. Guests can also take home a Hyperspace Lounge Glass with the purchase of any cocktail for an additional $12.
Up until now, all eyes have been on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, the new immersive hotel that allows fans of the galaxy far, far away to live out their own Star Wars stories. We’ve gathered everything we know about this brand-new experience, including how much it costs, what the food options are, and so much more to assess whether it’s worth the expenditure.
