Default How much do you drink (alcohol) on a cruise?

How many alcoholic drinks per day and what exactly are those drinks?

alot and many.LOL!!
on a seven day cruise i will have about 3 drinks a day but to be honest with you, on one of those days I get hammered so I have like 5 or 6. each about 7 dollars give or take and so my calculator says about 200 but i must be fibbing because it always ends up being more. count on a $400 PP bar bill.

5 of 6 is your definition of getting "hammered"? Lol, wow! It would probably take me twice that amount to get hammered, I could easily drink 6 beers in a day, or even through the evening!

My dh and I drink a lot (I'll defend us by saying that we are teachers!), and I honestly have no idea how much we drank on our last cruise, just that I am happy that it looks like we will be going into this one with some OBC to buffer the pain of the final bill. I suggest being drunk the final night to ease the sting.

We will each have a Grey Goose on the rocks before dinner.

Then at dinner we will either have a glass of wine or another Grey Goose.

After dinner we will have a liquor in one of the lounges as our nightcap.

Neither DH nor I ever drink on a cruise. When we are in a suite, we always trade-out the free mini bar set up for diet Cokes and bottled water. I like to bank my calories for dessert!

If we're in port....usually just wine with dinner, or a fancy mixed drink at night. If we're on the ship all day, I might have a beer out by the pool, and then wine with dinner or a martini at night. I love the girly drinks like daiquiris, pina colada, etc. but also wouldn't mind a corona with a lime! So I guess it could range from 1-3 drinks? I don't normally drink that much at home but will definitely have more on vacation! But never enough to ruin my plans for the next day.

I only average 1-2 drinks a day, usually while attending shows.

However, I usually bring 8-12 liters of various liquors back for the bar at home!

Default Why spoil good booze

Mixers just kill the taste of the booze. Not to mention, adding a lot of unwanted extra calories.

On my last cruise I drank most of two bottles of Patron plus $400 worth of shots on board. That does not include whatever drinking we did ashore.

I don't drink spirits or beer. My husband and I usually drink a bottle of wine or maybe a little more per day on average. It depends on the cruise though. We definitely drink more on a Caribbean cruise than a port intensive Med cruise.

A frozen, fruity drink (or two) by the pool in the afternoon.....maybe a couple of beers, instead. Before dinner, several vodka tonics....(3-4) and then we eat...and I'm done!

Normally a couple of beer a day plus a glass or two of wine on the balcony with DW. For her the wine and normally a Mojito after dinner. There have certainly been exceptions though!

A couple of beers beside the pool around lunchtime, a couple more in the pub whilst waiting on the girls getting ready for dinner. One with dinner, or maybe a glass of wine then a few G&Ts whilst relaxing in one if the lounges. Finish off with a Disarrono before bed and I'm done

Usually DH will get us a drink of the day in the afternoon then we have some wine with dinner...then bud light for him and vodka w/soda for me at the casino each night
I would say 5-6 each per day.

Default A couple of fruity drink each on a week's cruise;

margaritas or Cape Cods. We are not big drinkers and I would rather save the calories for something I love way more than alcohol.

Hubby and I don't drink any wine.
