Does anyone have the latest alcohol/wine list including the pricing? We will be on Maasdam.

As far as Pino Grigio do they only have Ruffino, which is what is available on-line pre-cruise and what year?

Also, is the corkage fee still $18.00 if you bring your own wine on board and into the dining room? Are they still able to save the wine for you to use over various nights, even if it is one you brought onboard?

Also do only Deluxe ("S") Suites (not BC etc) receive a bottle of wine, and what brand has it been.

Thanks.

The Corkage few is still $18 per bottle to be opened in the dining room and all lounges/bars.

Yes -- they will still tag and store a bottle for you for the next evening in the dining room.

Only the Deluxe Suites get a free bottle of champagne compliments of the Hotel Manager and the Captain. All we have been getting is Pol Clemente Brut.

I only have a current Alcohol list.

Thank you for all the info!

They do not charge you a second corkage fee if they bring the wine back the next night, or do they?

Does anyone know what the Bon Voyage White wine is for $21.85? Noting that the corkage fee would be $18.00 for a wine that I brought myself, if drinkable, this white wine could be brought to the dining room and is only approx $5.50 per glass (assumming 4 glasses per bottle).

How much is the house wine per glass?

If I bring my own wine to the dining room, I know they will charge me $18.00 corkage fee. But will they hold the bottle & bring it back to me another night even if I didn't buy it from them?

Yes Or you can bring it with you and finish it off in a lounge or in your room. Once you've paid the corkage fee, it is the same as if you had bought the bottle from them.

On a recent cruise to Alaska, we stayed at the Hampton Inn in downtown Seattle. There was a QFC grocery store one block away where I bought a couple of bottles of wine and carried them on the ship for drinking in our cabin. Some of the items in the cabin refrigerator had to be removed to make room for the bottles.

We always travel with our wine and just returned from a week on the Zaandam last week Anchorage to Vancouver. Surprised to find that we did not have a refrigerator in our cabin. However, our steward left us plenty of ice each day so that we could chill a bottle if we were having white that evening.
How do people have some left over to save? A novel idea that doesn't seem to work for us. Ha!

We are not big wine drinks as some others are.

Thus if we do get a bottle of wine at dinner -- we only consume 1/2 bottle the first night and finish the the rest the following evening.

I think this is what you are looking for
The list is from last year, but it should be pretty close to actual prices now!

If you click on the pictures, they will get bigger and legible! The wines are listed in the last three pictures.

Christine, thanks so much for posting the wine prices. I am amazed at the prices vs the quality. The only good buy IMO was the Silver Oak Cab and that was $98. Also, I did not see many of my favorite wines so that may mean they are more pricey and not on the MDR list. I think I will take advantage of the BYOW and pay the corkage fee, if we drink it in the MDR. Other cruisers have recommended Total Wine in Ft Lauderdale near the port. That is so convenient for our cruise. On the other hand the Vodka prices seem tolerable and since we can't bring it on, we may buy some on the ship.

My DH does not drink, and I would not have 4 glasses at one meal.

The Inside and OV on the older/smaller ships do not have a refrigerator but you can rent one for $2.00 per day, which is what we do when we stay in an OV.

Don't rely absolutely on posted wine lists. They often change and it isn't unusual for them to be out of a particular wine for an entire cruise. We have a few favorite wines and several were unavailable. One red we like, we ordered the first night and lucky we did as we got the last bottle.

I was drinking wine by the glass at the lounges but brand name and it was $9 per glass. I think the 'house' is probably about $7.

Here's a copy of the MDR wine list from the Zuiderdam in April/May. Wines by the glass begin at $5.50. All of the ships have basically the same wine list at any given time but not everything is always in stock. (Depends on when provisioning occurs, of course.)

Here's a copy of the Bar Menu from the same cruise. Wines-by-the-glass are listed on page 5. They begin @ $5.50 and go up to $8 (add 15% to that).

In addition to the champagne, suites usually receive a complimentary bottle of wine. It is HAL Executive Chef Rudi Sodamin's "private label." Have no idea who actually makes it. It is drinkable. Imagine the bon voyage wines are the probably the same thing.

Hope those help.

Except for the Prinsendam, which is the epitome of "older/smaller ships". All cabins on the Prinsendam have a fridge.

Wine list is 'suggestion'. It is never quite current and never fully available.

We've gotten to the point we ask for the wines we know we like and either they have them or not. If not, we order something else or sometimes take the suggestion of the wine steward. That greatly depends upon how knowledgeable he seems to be. We try to get a feel for whether we will like his recommendation. A little chat usually gives us a clue. Some of them are very, very good and there is always the Sommelier with whom you can consult.
