Default Drinks & Stuff

I was clearing out some old gear yesterday (under orders from 'She Who Must Be Obeyed') and came across an old bar list from the 'Himalaya' on the UK - Australia run via Suez (we did a lot of that) Not sure of the date but it must have been around 66/67. Oz had only just gone metric money wise and the list is in both Pounds stirling and AU$ - which at that time were stronger than the US$.
Here is a selection in AU$

Beer (can) 40 cents
Scotch 60 cents
Scotch Malt 70 cents
Brandy 50 cents
Cognac 60 cents
Gin (good stuff) 50 cents
Gin (bad stuff) 40 cents
Mixes 10 cents
Bottle JW black label $3.00
Bottle Moet $4.50
Average bot white wine (non vintage) $2.
Packet (20) of cigarettes 25 cents

Naturally, as today, all meals were free as were small things like snacks sent to cabin, ice creams, certain soft drinks etc.

If you wanted to get really posh you could arrange to have a midnight buffed served to you on deck (only to impress tha ladies) but this would set you back around a whopping great $4 for two - so was only for the rich
