RSS from SF Posted March 25, 2005 #226 Share Posted March 25, 2005 It would also be nice if, in addition to improving the wine selection, RCI didn't feel the need for a 400% to 500% markup. I expect a markup, but that's just out of line, IMO. Charging $28 for a bottle that costs $6 at the store? Eek. beachchick The current "Wine Cellar Selections" in the RCCL Cruise Guide shows a Beringer Founders Estate Cabernet Sauvignon for $39.95 that is currently on slight sale for 6.99 at my nearby upscale, higher-priced supermarket (usually at 7.99 at discount stores not on sale). Buy 6 bottles of any wines/liquors you get 10% off and each bottle is $6.29. And that's not a big sale at a discount shop. That's 635% MARKUP OVER RETAIL for this low-end stuff!
