I really don't think they enforce the corkage fee thing much. About buying in port, and then bringing onboard I don't know about, but one bottle at embarkation is absolutely fine for the wine

We take $100 a day in cash for 2, and always have money left. That is not saying we don't charge up some things. We are drinkers and gamblers, but that is budgeted in for the final result for the credit card.

Keep an eye on the bar tab, and seperate your gambling money from everything and stick to a daily limit is my advice.

My mom has her own grape vine and we make our own wine - we brought 2 bottles with us on the Triumph - It was packed in my checked luggage. I wanted to drink it in the dining room so I paid the $10.00 fee for each bottle.

Only bring as much as you intend to spend.

No offense to GC, But I say bring some extra beyond your budget for emergencies, or that ever so special moment.."Honey, I absolutely love that, but they don't take credit cards, do you have any cash?"

I guess the sardonic nature of the comment was not evident enough, Dewayne.

You can't use cash on board except for tipping and the casino..so we never bring more then $500 and charge most of our purchases...just seems safer...and I always bring $2 bills for that extra tip when called for....also, giving a tip upfront to your room steward always helps......at least for me.....Enjoy your cruise...you will be back for more..

I bring enough money to cover baggage tips, on board tips, about $100 for gambling (that I'm prepared to lose if it happens), and money for shopping and, if I'm in Cozumel, money for lunch at Pancho's Back Yard!!

If I need extra money on board, I take it out at the casino from my Sign and Sail Card.

And I'll let you all know exactly how much I spent when I get back in 2 weeks!!!!

Thats right babies...read it and weep...less than 2 weeks!!

Steve, how much did your insurance for that trip set you back? Just kidding, I already know the answer. Have a great trip!

Cheers, Neil

GC, Thanks, I learned a new word today. In that context makes sense to me. And is a very good point for people that get carried away with the "what the heck, we are on vacation" mentality.
