Wines start at about $26 for white. Expect to pay $38 + 15% for a decent Red.........Cruising has never been cheaper so expect to pay a little OTT for drinks and services..........Wilba.

I think you are thinking in pounds not dollars, you will get a beer for $6 and spirits are larger measures than in the UK.

Just look at it as the total cost of your holiday. The drinks on RCI are more expensive than some (but certainly not all) cruise lines, but the cost you pay for the cruise on a RCI ship is probably much cheaper than the cruise cost of the lines that have "cheap drinks" therefore your total cost of your holiday will probably be cheaper on your RCI cruise. You did not say which other cruise lines you have sailed on.

Guessing the other two lines weren't American or Italian, RCI's prices aren't hugely different to other US lines. But yes, expensive, and most Brits consequently drink a whole lot less & drink more free tea/coffee/lemonade from the buffets..............Wilba quotes from $26 for white - its the same for reds. About £20 incl the 15% for a bottle which would cost mebbe £14 on a UK ship or in a pub. Far from special but perfectly drinkable. ........That's the house wine, but do check carefully, they have more expensive wines which they also call "house wines" & not all bars offer the cheapest. .........

Do You Have A Bucket List?

By Gail Ryan

Gail Ryan's blog

Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?Until a few years ago I don’t think I had ever heard this term, had you? I think my first recollection was when I watched a film starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman about two characters that fate brings together in a hospital room and they discuss the things they want to do before they die.There are loads of thing that you can have on your list – it does necessarily have to be about holidays, but I think the majority of ...
