This is review of the new Carnival wine packages and the new Carnival wine policy. See here the complete Carnival Cruise Lines wine list with prices. This is your ultimate "Carnival Cruise Wine" information source about wine on Carnival cruises - selection, packages, rules, allowance/limit (taking wine on board), bottle size, wine tasting, and how much is it cost by bottle and glass. This article is integrated with Carnival Fan Shops/Bon Voyage wine list prices (wine, liquor, gifts, services). For closely related topics, you can check our "Alcohol Drinks Packages Menus" section. The latest update also includes the NEW "American TABLE" Carnival wine list with prices.

Wine is the perfect accessory for your most special Carnival cruise dining experience. The Carnival wine list (menu  of wine selections) is one of the best ways to ensure all those special "sparkling" smiles on the table. And fear not - the Carnival Cruise Lines wine prices are not "spark-killing" at all! So it's up to you to be fun - as always!

Carnival wine package

At this link you'll find a most detailed and really extensive survey on the subject of Carnival wine packages cost (offered by the line's "Cruise Vineyards" program). As prices, a Carnival cruise wine package cost ranges from around $80 up to $200. The Carnival's wine packages as selections offer three 5-bottle sets - Basic, Deluxe and Premium, all with very good selections.

Wine packages on your Carnival cruise can save you up to 25% off the prices of purchasing wine by the bottle. These packages can be ordered prior sailing through the Bon Voyage department (the new "Fun Shops"), but also can be purchased on board through the ship's gift shop or through waiters in the Main Dining Room. Either way, the additional charge of 15% gratuity stays. Also, you won't have to select your wines until you are ready to drink one of them. Carnival wine packages

  • When you place your order you select a wine package as size & type: 3/5 bottles and Basic/Deluxe/Premium, then you'll receive wine coupons (their number depends on the package you select, like 5 bottles package = 5 coupons). If purchased through Fun Shops (former Bon Voyage) they will be left in your stateroom. If purchased through gift shops or MDR they will be given to you at that time. You can use these coupons at any onboard bar (serving wine) or in the MDR. Once you've given the bartender/waiter your coupon and wine selection, the bottle will be brought to you.
  • If you order in the MDR and don't finish the bottle, you can either take it with you, have it delivered to your cabin or the staff will re-cork it and save it for your next visit to the MDR.
  • Guests can save up to 25% off the regular bottle prices. If the wine is ordered from the Fan Shops they also avoid paying the 15% gratuity (which is extra if they purchase the package on board).
  • If you want to buy a wine package in the MDR, your dinner menu also has the prices and the selection list. The types of wine are printed on the back of the coupons.
  • On embarkation day Carnival offers free wine tasting in the gift shop and a great variety of packages, so the embarkation day offers better deals.

The Carnival Cruise Lines wine list includes some of the best selections with many reserves at most affordable prices.

Carnival Steakhouse free wine promotion

This revelation is about the Carnival Cruise Lines' Steakhouse free wine first night promo offer. As an addition to the menu inclusions, you will receive a complimentary bottle of wine with Steakhouse reservations made for the first night of your sailing. You can make Steakhouse reservations on-line and while on the boat. Know that it's a promotion, so the wine choices are limited (basic white or red wines, not from the fine wines selection). Oh yeah, and there's a free steak when you buy a bottle from the wine shop on board.

"American TABLE" wine list with prices

Follow these links to see the inclusions of the two new Carnival dinner menus "American TABLE" (casual nights) and "American FEAST" (formal dinners), and to all Carnival drink prices, including the new "American TABLE" cocktails menu.Carnival Cruise Lines American TABLE Wine List with prices per glass and per bottle

Carnival wine policy and rules (wine allowance, corkage), tips and links to Carnival drinks related articles

Carnival wine policy - can I bring wine on Carnival cruise ships?

  • CCL wine selection is a subject to change.
  • Can you bring wine on Carnival cruise? According to Carnival alcohol policy/rules (the "carry on wine bottle policy"), guests are allowed to bring on board 1 bottle (max size 750ml) of wine or champagne per passenger (the age limit is 21 years of age or over), only on the 1st day embarkation and only in your carry-on luggage. The wine limit allows passengers to take 4-pack small wine bottles (187ml each, for a total of 748ml).
  • All wine/champagne over the allowance (in sealed/unopened bottles) will be confiscated and retained until the end of the voyage and will be available for collection in a designated on-board location on the morning of debarkation day.
  • If you wish to consume this wine/champagne, a $10 corkage fee (per bottle) will be charged if consumed in the MDR and $14 for consuming it in the on-bard Steakhouse.
  • Often, bringing the wine bottle to the table already opened can avoid the corkage fee.
  • Carnival Steakhouse wine list/prices/free wine - it's a promotion deal offering guests a complimentary bottle of white or red wine (basic selection) if they make a Steakhouse reservation for the first night.
  • "Carnical vs Royal Caribbean" - compare the above prices with the Royal Caribbean wine policy/list/prices.
