We also took a look at the drink card and decided it was better to purchase a bottle of wine at dinner and have the steward bring the unused portion back for the second evening. Some travelers may think that is a hassel and would prefer a card. I think this is just a personal decision. By the way--drink cards are available the day you board. Just ask any staff person. You will usually find them close to the elevator being used for passengers who are embarking.

It is easier to purchase any cards from your server at your first dinner in the dining room (or in the Lido).
