Talking Evaluating a beverage package? Here is a beverage list with prices, as of mid-2010.

Hello, folks.

[Some of you have seen earlier versions of this message, but it has always been posted previously as a reply within a thread started by another person. I decided today to use this message to start a new thread for a couple of reasons, but especially because of "enhancements" that I have made here and there -- made in part because of suggestions by some of you. Various "no-extra-charge," non-alcoholic beverages have been added. Also the list of wines available by the glass now has notations showing which can be ordered in the main dining rooms. Thank you.]

In order to help you decide whether or not a Celebrity beverage package would be "worth it" to you, you need to know what will be available and at what price per glass.

Here is a series of lists of the various kinds of beverages found on 2010 menus aboard the Solstice. (I presume that the same/similar menus will be found aboard Equinox, etc. -- but I cannot guarantee it!) Photos of the Solstice menus are on the Internet and have been linked by other CC members in the recent past. I copied all this info from those dozens of photos. The numbers after the items' names are the prices in dollars.

Thanks for all the info. I see my first choice for Pinot Noir is not avaiable in the MDR...which measn I will be "forced" to drink the one that is $11 a glass. I was planning on getting the premium package anyway. Can't wait to try some of those drinks listed for the Molecular Bar

I'm printing out your list and using it as a checklist to see if I can drink one of everything on our cruise. Can't wait, Sostice September 26.

(Just joking about drinking everythng. I probably will skip the teas.)

jg51,
Thank you for the list - you've pretty much covered all the bases. It will definitely be worth my while to get the Premium package. I may not break even each day, but overall I think I'll come close. I love specialty coffees (lattes, espresso etc.) and was pleasantly surprised to see Hint Water on the list (though they don't have my favorite flavor, Honeydew-Hibiscus). I love that stuff.

Susan

Default beverage package and speciality dining

Hi, many thanks for the list, we are thinking of the Classic Alcoholic package, but we were wondering if you can use the package in the Speciality dining rooms i.e. the tuscan grille.
if you can then great if not then it makes the prices a bit steep if you want to eat in them other than the main dining room.

Sam

Judie, there are many delicious off-menu drinks at the Molecular Bar as well as Junior Merino (the Liquid Chef) is coming up with new drinks all the time. Ask as they are all $12 and available under the premium package.

Question Bottled water to take ashore?

I see that there are some nice bottled waters on your list that you can get with the package. Is it possible to get more than one bottle at a time? I ask this because when going ashore, I'd like to bring a couple with me, but heard that you can only get one "drink" at a time with the card. Has anyone done this before? Thanks!

Thanks to everyone.

I enjoyed reading ALL of the responses -- from the serious ones (e.g., City_Woman), to the funny ones (e.g., Jerry and Shelly), to the informative ones (e.g., dzcruisers).

I greatly appreciate the tip, "BKFlowerMound," about the "off-menu" drinks available in the Molecular Bar.

Hello, "pisces223."
You heard correctly. You can get only one bottle of water with your card. If you are traveling with someone who also has a card, you can get two bottles, but both cards must be presented (even if by just one person). Are you sure that you need more than one bottle? Did you notice that you can get a large Evian or San Pellegrino, which (I believe) are about 34 ounces (= just over one quart/liter). [Excuse me if this seems "indelicate," but if you take too much water ashore, you may be constantly in search of a restroom.]

Just off the Millennium for a 7 day in Alaska. We purchased the premium drink package. I loved it. In 7 days, i had 88 drinks that were on the final bill. It was well worth it. I would run to cafe cove first thing in the am in sweats and a t shirt, and grab a latte. I would grab a large water for the excursions, wine in the afternoon and drinks at night. It was great to order different drinks that I normally would not try since I didn't have to worry about the final bill. I only felt any attitude from the server at dinner. He just didn't seem to want to get me a second glass of wine. I learned to swing by the bar on the way into dinner, that way I had a glass and could order a second one at dinner.

Thumbs up Thanks!

A thousand and one thanks for this! We will sit down to do the math to decide--to beverage package or not beverage package, that is the question. You've made finding the answer a lot easier.

We are cruising with first timers and this will be most helpful to them as well.

Default pro-rated drink package

Has anyone ever tried adding a drink package mid-way in the cruise? We will be on the Mercury for 12 nights in November. 5 of those days will be in port, and we don't think it will be very economical for port days. We were leaning towards going a la carte until day 7 or 8 and then trying to pick up the premium package for the rest of the cruise. Is this possible?

Thanks.

Thank you, mods!!

I requested this thread be made a sticky so that folks with questions could be directed right to it, rather than making sure it stayed "bumped" onto the first page, since the OP, jg51, was kind enough to compile all the prices together - it would be a shame to have it "lost" on the boards.
