Question Beverage costs

I can't seem to find out how much beverages cost on the ship. Both alcohol/nonalcoholic. Any input? Thanks.

I don't know for a fact but you can be pretty sure they range from $2.50 - $3.50 for soda, $4.50 - $6.00 beer, $5.00- $10.00 for cocktails (cheap well drinks to foo-foo tropical drinks)

HAL now has a bar beverage card for $100 for which you pay $90. It's like a debit card. You buy your drink and they debit your card. You'd be surprised how soon the card runs out! ! I was sitting at a bar next to another woman and my card ran out. Next thing you know, her card ran out. She says the same thing happens to her in the Casino. Too funny!

Don't know how much the sodas cost. We purchased well drinks at $4.95 or $5.95 for well brands. Bloody Mary's were $6.75. You have to be careful when ordering, because sometimes they "forget" and give you a call or premium pour and then you pay more. Also, happy hour is from 4-5 pm in Crow's Nest and Ocean Bar, sometimes at Seaview Bar. It's no longer 2-4-1 but you pay for the first drink and then the second is $1, i.e., $4.95+$1 for 2 drinks.

UM -- well, not me. If they "forget", that is their problem. If they bring me a bill which is not for what I ordered, I just send them back to correct the bill. Why would anyone put up with an incorrect order, ashore or at sea?

Of course you should have them correct the bill. However, many people just take the bill and card. You don't have to sign them anymore.
