Default Wine Packages

Sailing on the Empress in a few days time.

I'm sure I've read somewhere about wine packages being available. I checked the RCCL website and all I can find is individual bottles to order. Does anybody have any info on wine packages please ?

YES,
It is sold on the first day only after boarding.
If I remember the display was near the shops and at the main buffet area.

If you can not find the display ask at guest relations.
The package was a decent deal.

They also seem to have two packages. One more expensive one and a cheaper one. Since we are not big drinkers I never get it.

They have 2 packages. One is the 7 night wine flight for about $140. and the other is a 4 night deal for about $50. The wines included are pretty good - not high end and not low-end. If you drink a bottle of wine with dinner most nights, it might be worth it.

Hope this helps!

They do have two packages; 7 bottles @ $140 or 4 @ $90 plus gratuity. The list to pick from is limited but pretty good: 6 reds, 6 whites (I blush), 2 sparkling. They will cap the bottles each evening and you can even have your wine at Chops or Portofino. However be prepared to wait for it at Chops, as they sometimes have to go all the way to the main dining room to get your choice if opening a new bottle. We wanted the Asti Spumante at Chops and it took them more than a half hour to get the wine! we drink different varietals; he red/she white, so the package worked out pretty well. We also shared with our tablemates on the last evening. They were not big wine drinkers during the week.
Bon Voyage
