My wife and I will be on the Royal Princess in June for a Greek Isles cruise but have never cruised before, so please excuse my ignorance. I have read up on the alcohol packages/restrictions and understand you can bring on one bottle of wine per person at no charge when initially boarding and can bring additional bottles at a corkage fee of $15 per bottle, which turns a $15 bottle of wine purchased in Athens into a $30 bottle for consumption in your room. But if I can purchase a bottle of wine on board for around the same price I would prefer to do that rather than hauling my own on board. So my question is do they have a store on board where you can buy a bottle of wine when at sea to take back to your room, and if so, what is the approximate price range. The prices per glass at the bars and restaurants look reasonable but sometimes we might prefer to sit on our balcony and read, and have a glass or two of wine while doing so.
