Default Drinks prices On Eclipse

Having cruised for the first time on Celebrity Eclipse in June with my Husband I have to say how impressed with the ship we were. The food was good and the shows were great. My only bone of contention is the cost of drinks onboard, Celebrity badged wine averaging $35 dollars a bottle plus the outrageous 15% compulsory gratuity. Small beers on average about 5 . even the soft drinks were very very expensive. We found that the entertainment venues emptied out very quickly after the shows. Speaking to several other cruisers aboard they stated they retired to thet cabins to have a drink there is this a factor to the venues closing early.. Its a shame really FABULOUS SHIP lovely staff outrageous drinks prices

Yes, I agree - the average cocktail would be about $8.00 or more. A glass of wine would be $7.00 and they are even pretty small pours.

At least CXC allows you to bring bottles of wine onboard. Buy the wine in port and drink it in your stateroom.

Can you buy wine at every port? I thought it was just the initial embarkation that you could bring it on.

I don't just want a drink though, I like bars, especially the Martini bar on Eclipse, couldn't do THAT in your cabin!
