I did see the standard language in the brochure, but it is the "and up" part I was wondering about. Does anyone have any first hand knowledge of the drink prices. (wine, martini, cosmopolitans) ?

Most ship alcholic beverages are more on scale with fine land resturants and bars: Cosmo = $6.75, Wine by the Glass = $5.50+, plus gratuity, Manhattan = $6, etc. Two drinks at a time for a couple = apx. $15. inc. tip. It adds up fast. Hint: order your bottled wine on line to be delivered at your table or in your cabin. The price includes the gratuity and you may have a better selection. Try the drinks of the day @ apx. $2.95. They are much cheaper. I don't remember if Celebrity does this, but there were different sizes for the DOD on some ships and you could have your "Specialty" glass refilled.
Bon Voyage

the martinis on the summit were $8.75 but you did get enough for 2 drinks what was left in the shaker.

Don't know where you live but even our finest restaurants do not charge $8.75 for a martini, extra in shaker or not! Dallas is a bit higher than ABQ and their prices are not that high either. Normally I would say $4.50 and up for wine as well as $5.00 and up for scotch, martinis etc depending on whether you call your brands or not.

We will be on the ship in Dec. and have never cruised before!! some one said they have daily drink specials? Can you give me an example. And is it true that if you buy the specialty glass you get free refill? that doesn't sound right. . . Just want some clarification. We are goijng with a large group and want to give them a heads up on prices.
Thanks

Does anyone know if Celebrity has a wine package? We paid around $100 for 5 or 6 bottles of wine from a standard selection aboard the Radience of the Seas. Basically we could order the bottle at our table each night and get our card punched. If we did not finish it we took it back to our room. You could also order a bottle for your room.

Wine package is a great idea. We are planning on boarding in SJuan (Connie) then get off ship, buy wine in the duty free shop and bring it to dinner each night. I think, if I am not mistaken the corkage fee is about $12.00. Someone did say $15 the other day. If it's $15.00 we may make other arrangements.

BryanJay: Nita won't say it , but I will, take some of your own refreshment. If you want some ideas I will be happy to e-mail them to you as to how get the liquid stuff on board. I have found that the drinks on board are so expensive on all cruise lines. I remember on one translantic NCL cruise I paid $13.50 for a good size vodka martini. Just remember it all adds up untill the last day of the cruise when the cruise line slips your final bill under the cabin door. On your way to breakfast that morning you can hear as you pass by each cabin, " NO way I could have drunk that much!!" but you did..There are many ways to cut the cost of a cruise and still have a blast. Let me know if you want some hints. Michael M.
