Sharing a Bottle of Wine?


Recommended Posts

We will be Mom and 3 siblings (all adults) in two cabins.  Two of the siblings bought the deluxe drink package, which also allows them a 40% discount on bottles of wine.  They will be able to *purchase* the occasional drink for the third sibling, (Mom is a teetotaler), and will only order drinks for themselves with their packages.  The question is:  If they purchase a bottle of wine at dinner, is it legal to pour a glass for the third sibling?

I don't see why not... If I am wrong others will chime in and correct me

 

You are allowed to bring 2 bottles of wine (750ML) per cabin... you have to carry it on.

I would not consider this to be sharing the drinks package. Getting a $13 drink other dp and then getting another and giving one would be sharing the dp .🙃

Keep in mind that with the new Covid rules, anytime you share a bottle of wine you have to pour the wine into each individual’s glass. No more wrapping the bottle in a paper bag and chugging back and forth.

There is actually a new rule on Royal about this exact situation.

The rule states that if the third sibling ticked off either of the two other siblings in the 48 hours prior to boarding, for any reason, sharing of a bottle of 40% off wine is strictly prohibited.  Otherwise, go ahead and share away. 

 

It's always good to know the 'rules' when family travels together. 😉

Bs .There is no such rule , Royal knows that Jesus's said to shair the wine so it's  just not listed in the t&c but in the Good book .🙏😇

Yes, if you purchase a bottle, you may do whatever you wish with it..  It's different with the unlimited drink packages...those drinks are for the package holder only.

The reason you have to buy 2 is because RC realized they can make a lot more money that way.

 

Especially when the majority of passengers still bought the package.

 

It is not because someone gave a drink away...

I don't buy any more and like beer so after a OJ and a coffee that is only three beers for the rest of the day and night  I miss out . F&B on Radiance said it was indeed because of sharing. Who at Royal told you otherwise?

No, they did it because almost EVERYONE was given drinks away.

 

It was common for 2 people to buy a single package and sharing every drink.  Heck, the bartenders would even give you two drinks on the one package.

 

But that is no longer the case.

I wasn't aware a paper bag was required  ... I feel so ashamed now

He only had the water package, however,  which is much cheaper and only needs to be purchased by 1.
