FUN TO TRAVEL
Any one who has sailed on the Fathom Adonia, what are wine prices like? Is there are house wine by the bottle? Does it pay to bring your own wine ?Well, I believe you are allowed one bottle - drink it in your cabin and no charge, but take it to the dining room and there is a corkage fee. I don't remember if you're allowed additional bottles with the mandatory fee or not. (I do know it's a case where solos get messed over because someone could be traveling with someone who doesn't drink and that person still gets a bottle allowance, so the drinker gets 2. But fathom isn't the only line that does it per person rather than per stateroom - and come to think of it, the other one I have cruised on that does it is under the Carnival umbrella, so...)
Thank you for observing our carry-on alcohol policy. As a reminder, adult passengers are permitted to bring oneNote that you are allowed to purchase rum in the ports and bring it onto the ship for personal consumption in your cabin.
750ml bottle of wine or champagne onboard per voyage, which will not be subject to a corkage fee if consumed in
the stateroom. Additional wine or champagne bottles are welcome, but will incur a $20 corkage fee each,
irrespective of where they are intended to be consumed. Liquor, spirits, or beers are not permitted. Please
remember that luggage will be scanned and alcohol outside of our policy will be removed and discarded.
Officially, the policy is as stated above. However when I was aboard for a DR sailing in October you could have brought the entire winery aboard and nothing would have been said. Fathom is a much more adult line then the rest of the Cost Cutting Cruise Lines brands.At embarkation or in port? I know on the Cuba one they didn't care in port. I don't know about embarkation because as I said above I got in late the night before and as embarkation was Christmas there was no place to get anything.
Any one who has sailed on the Fathom Adonia, what are wine prices like? Is there are house wine by the bottle? Does it pay to bring your own wine ?We were on in October. I had a glass of red wine one night with dinner. If I remember correctly, I think it was $6.50. I do remember that the alcohol prices were a little less than Carnival. They were about equivalent to drink prices where we live, Atlanta. We brought on two bottles of wine and never opened the second. We bring our own coffee mugs (tervis) with us, and if we want to have some of our wine in a lounge listening to music, we just put it in the tervis. I bought 4 bottles of wine at Chocal and had no problem bringing them on board; didn't open them, but could have. Have a great cruise ... we leave Sunday ... excited!
