Those are $20 at retail. Top shelf often refers to liquor priced at $100. and up.

That's beyond top shelf for me - that's locked in the glass case, haha. Anything better than Aristocrat is top shelf to me.

Hi all,
I am very much aware of carnival's alcoholic beverage policy, and it seems we should expect to allocate a good amount of cash to the high bar prices. That being said, are there areas or events where carnival will offer a complimentary beverage? For example, if I play slots in the casino will I be offered a free beverage, or is that only for the high rollers? Other events like captains toast?

Thanks for the tips!

If you attend concert or sporting events you will pay as much, if not more for drinks there then on the ship.

I've been to several ladies nights at the dance clubs. Free champagne.

Oh nice! I may have to go to the ladies night dances....

Unfortunately I am not a gold or higher member. I've only cruised once before!

Another place to go for complimentary alcohol is the cabin of someone who smuggled in enough to share

The casino bar menu is rather limited. A lot of well and frozen cocktails. Top shelf liquor is not available. Sadly even in land based casino's this has become the rule except in high roller parlors.
That's the truth, unfortunately. I was at Baha Mar and the complimentary drink they made me used fake rum, made from wine. It was horrible.

Yuck! Better to stick to bottles of beer in that situation...
