Default drink prices

Hi there! What are the drink prices on the ship? I keep reading about people sneaking alcohol on the ship but my husband and I mainly drink beer. Kind of hard to sneak a keg on!! Just wondering how much to budget for.

Thanks for any info!!!

We got home yesterday from a 5 night cruise on the Sensation (awsome time).
On deck, we had double sized Corona's served in a bucket of ice. The equivilent of 4 bottles of Corona and it cost about $13 with the 15% gratuity included.
At the nightclub, my wife would order a glass of wine and I had a bottle of beer, that came to about $10.30 with the gratuity included.
We purchased 2 bottles of wine that covered almost all of our dinners
(she drank it not me).
The Fetzer Eagle Peak Merlot was $22 or $25.30 with gratuity. What was great, was that after dinner our waiter marked the bottle and held it for us until the next night. One bottle averaged 2 dinners for my wife.

A bottle or can of domestic beer is $3.75 plus the 15% gratuity. Specialty beers are more.

WOW! that is excellent information ! Thank you! When I cruised with RCCL the bartenders didn't know how to make a Sex on the Beach! My drink of choice... Never did get it right. I may print this list out and take it to a bar Sat night and "taste test" some of them so I can have some alternatives...wink-wink! Just one dense question... what was the price for the fountain cards? Thanks!

Isn't Iced Tea and coffee free on deck and by the pool? And don't soft drinks come with your meals? First time cruiser here and we are BIG ice tea drinkers.

Are you sure that the drinks with the meal aren't free? When I went on RCCL, we were never charged for any drink with our meal - even wine, it was part of the meal. They did charge for the specialty drinks after the meal, but you knew that and they rqsted you sail and sign card each time you ordered one.

I am a beer drinker also, but shoot for the specials they are inexpensive $2.95 and doubles I think are $5.99 or $6.00. Make sure you tell them to make it really strong.

so the free coffee, water, juice (lemonaide, fruit punch I assume) are only on the lido deck and in the dining room? If you get them somewhere else you will be charged... is that right?

They have raised the price of the fountain cards. I believe we just paid 34.95 each . I urge you to try the drink Ocean Wave...it was excellent. I don't see it on the list! The free drinks available on the Lido deck are coffee, tea, iced tea, hot chocolate, milk and lemonade. In the morning you can also get orange juice and apple juice. You can carry them into the Dining room or to the show if you want.
