Default Sharing Wine at Meals?

I have a question I haven't seen yet. If we are at a table for 10 or 12 people, and we receive a complimentary bottle of wine from a friend as a gift, what is the etiquette about either sharing that bottle with table mates or perhaps ordering a second bottle to supply the table? Is it polite to share the bottle between the two couples traveling together?

Hi Nancy,
Either way you want to do it, is fine. Personally if I have a bottle of wine I like to offer a glass to everyone at the table, one cruise we took turns each evening ording a bottle, but its fine if you want to just share it with the couple you are cruising with too.

Last year we were at a table with two couples who were celebrating anniversaries. One couple had a bottle of champagne given to them by their TA and they shared it with our table. Another night the other couple ordered a bottle of wine from the steward and shared it. We were feeling flush from a good night at the slots and bought a farewell bottle of wine to share with everyone on the last night. There were only the 6 of us--the other couple never showed. (Their loss.)
I wonder if one bottle would be enough for a table of 12. You may need another. I doubt if anyone would mind if you just shared it with your friends.

We were at a table of 10 last October on the Enchantment...each night (we did a 5 night cruise) a different couple would buy a round of those dessert drinks for the table. We had fun collecting the little shooter glasses.

I am hoping I will not be feeling left out on our upcoming trip--just found out yesterday that since I now take Zocor alcohol is off limits! Hopefully any table mates will iunderstand.

It is your wine and you should do whatever you please with it.
