Default Drinks on the ship

I realize that some things are not included in the price of the cruise -- chief among these being alcoholic drinks.

Are the drink prices reflective of the monopoly that the ship holds (e.g. will I be paying $8.00 for a dacquari?).

No, they're $4.95, about a typical bar price. I think they're on the weak side, though. At least the Miami Vices, which are 50:50 daiquiri/pina colada were my last trip.

The "drink-of-the-day" on deck, poolside is $6.95 (plus the 15%). This is usually rum punch. All refills are $4.95.

Most beers range from $3.50-$4.50
Glass of wine $4.95-$7.95 ($30 average bottle)

Is it more expensive than your local watering hole? Maybe. But then again most restaurants don't make their money on the food. It comes from the alcohol. And in this case the cruise lines have a monopoly.

Depending on where your ports are, do sample the local stuff. Local beer in St. Lucia and Antigua was $2.00 / bottle. Banana daquire was $4.00.

Best advice is: Get hammered on land and the next day while at sea, you won't want to drink anyway.

Check Carnival's FAQ site (the link is small at the bottom of the page) for a complete list of drink prices. They really arent too bad. And remember - drink beer, they cant water it down!

No, they won't throw you off the ship. There are a lot of people who smuggle their liquor on board in their checked luggage. If you do that, be sure and pack it very good. In ziplock bags and wrapped with clothes or bubble wrap.
