Default cost of alcoholic drinks

We are traveling on the Destiny in a few weeks & am wondering if any of you have an idea what the drinks cost? I am not finding any info on Carnival's website. I overheard someone talking this past weekend & his bar tab for him & his wife was $1400 and that was on the Fascination - 4 day cruise!!! Thanks in advance for your information.

Don't get sticker shock....drinks are no more then in a club or resturant. We were just on a 7 day cruise total sail and sign card was around $1,400.00. But, only about $350.00 was booze.

Yes, the drinks are about the same at clubs but, if the entire $1400.00 was just for alcohol then somebody has a severe problem. Maybe they bought a few "rounds" for others I hope?

Thank you all! I thought $1400 was a bit extreme & I bet he had excursions, etc on there. Must have felt like he had to brag about his bar tab!!

Thank you for the beverage menu -- the prices that I can make out are the figures I was thinking.

Dina -- We are on the same sailing. We are sailing with 23 others, we are having a cruise gathering tonight. Looking forward to it!

Thats a nice size group. It's just me and my hubby. We wanted to do something special on our 20th anniversary.

I'm sure you've been checking out all the things to do on the islands. Have you been on any of them before?

$1400.00 bar tab for a 4-day cruise? They didn't draw a sober breath the whole time they were on the cruise or they bought drinks fo a lot of people.

We did this same itinerary 2 years ago. This time I think we are going to do more lounging around. But, have been looking at the excursions & listening to the others make their plans.

Just got back yesterday from Carnival Legend. Coors Light were $3.50, other beer were a bit more, but also larger (16 oz.). You could buy a "bucket of beer" (four beer on ice) and save a few bucks. Mixed drinks were $4.00+. For a beer and a vodka & orange juice, with the automatic 15% added on, it was under $10. We didn't think it was bad at all. Our bill was huge (around $1700), but that was an 8 day cruise, 3 fairly expensive excursions, $80 each in pre-paid tips, a bit of casino money, the special dining room one night, etc. It was pretty much what we expected to spend.

If you call 1-800 Carnival....they can e mail you the entire list of beverages. I thought this was great. Since I am on vacation I would like to try those silly fu fu drinks with the cute names. They are on the list. I just printed it & took it with me so I could sample something different. Nice folks at the 1-800 number.
