Default Corkage Fee

Can anyone tell me how much the wine corkage fee is in the dining room?

We took an open bottle to the dining room five nights out of seven on the Grand Princess in March and were never charged anything.

So they charged you $10 each for the other two nights you arrived with an uncorked bottle?

No, the first night we purchased one off the menu. Another day we had purchased one at the wine tasting and had it with dinner. My husband asked our waiter if he minded us bringing open bottles to the dining room - he said no - about one in three do it now.
It was never a big issue. Neither was bringing wine on board. Have fun!

also a lot depends upon your waiter. If you are going to have a bottle of wine every night with dinner, chances are your waiter will not charge you every night . No problem bringing wine aboard Princess

Thanks for the replies.

Lisa: Wer're going to do PC dining, so we won't have the same waiter each time. How do you know they've applied the corkage fee for any particular night? Do they ask you for your sailing card and have you sign the transaction? I figured I would cut my losses slip the waiter $5 and hopefully cut out the middleman (Princess). A win-win situation as I see it since I've done all the work bringing the wine and the waiter does the rest. Has anyone had any success with that type of arrangement?

Good luck with the side deal - it may or may not work - depending on the waiter I suppose.

If you are going to be charged the corkage, the waiter will ask for your cruise card.

We were on the Grand in October and had dinner the first two nights in Traditional and were charged both nights. Then switched to personal choice and there was no mention of it. Go figure!

Enjoy your cruise
