Default drinks with dinner

Question: On the Glory, what are the choices for drinks with your dinner? I thought I remembered ordering wine on the Disney Wonder (complementary with dinner), but I could just be having a 'senior moment'.

Water, tea, and coffee. Booze will cost you. Soda will cost you unless you have the soda card.

Not even milk? Juice with breakfast? Wow, I just thought one would get more than water, tea or coffee with one's meal.

Juice and milk. You asked about diner not the other meals.

You're right. Okay, what about bringing a bottle of wine to enjoy with dinner? What's the 'opening fee'?

I was told a $10 corking fee on my cruise. If you are "taking care" of your wait staff you might be suprized. No one I knew that brought wine were charged a fee for it to be opened.

I had bought a bottle and had them open it at dinner and we consumed the entire thing at that seating.

We had a group at a whole table so we brought two bottles of wine with us to dinner. We were never charged the corkage fee.

I am not a wine drinker but my parents are. When we were on our last cruise they brought wine to drink and were never charged a cork fee. On a side note my drink waiter has brought me sodas for no charge at dinner if you ask nicely. I did not do this every night but once or twice it was ok, ymmv. I also get to know my drink waiter and let them know I will be having a beer with dinner every night and it is always there right after we sit down.

Ack! I love tea, but as a Southern girl, you can imagine I have a sophisticated tea palate. I can't imagine the cruise ship having good tea. Do they?

I think we will just bring our own wine.

Just wondering where everyone is getting the wine bottles to bring to the dining room. Are you bringing them on the ship? What are our changes of putting liquor in our luggage and not getting caught? I'm really trying to cut down on the liquor bill. We actually enjoy the wine that comes in a box. That might be easier to bring on the ship.

Carnival allows you to bring a small amout of wine with you. We usually order a bottle to be ready in the cabin when we arrive and then bring 3 or 4 additional bottles with us. We have even purchased one of the packages and exchanged the wine for another type at a comparable fee. We bought the wine and fruit basket on our last cruise. It was warm so we took it to dinner and they exchanged it for a cold one they served us at dinner.

I have seen people bring box wine. I'm not such a wine snob to question that. However, I'm not sure I'd want to carry the box to dinner.

bringing your own wine is LEGAL. So you don't have to hide it. Just carry it on board out in the open.

I just read on an other post that Carnival has changed their policy regarding bringing wine on board this year. The new police states 1 bottle per passenger 21 and over.

Kind of a lame question but does anyone know if there is a liquor store on the way from the airport in Fort Lauderdale to Port Everglades?I was thinking of having the taxi driver stop so we can get our wine in Florida before boarding the ship. I can't see bringing it all the way from where we live in Rhode Island. Glad to hear about the one bottle of wine per person over 21. Does any rules apply to hard liquor? We are not big drinkers but it is nice to have a cocktail after dinner.

Going on my first cruise with wife in September(Conquest). Are you allowed to take on board those small pina colada bottles? A max ? Can you put it in luggage ? Also, how much are drinks ? Pina coladas?
