Corkage fee ?

Yes, I know that if you bring your own wine into the dining room you have a corkage fee.

I've read a report elsewhere that the fee is $25 (at least on the Dream). Can anyone confirm this?

The DCL website says $20. Not sure if it's up to date.

Yeah, I know. But I read a report from someone just back from the Dream (first cruise) saying that the corkage fee was $25. Just trying to confirm that.

It has been $20 forever...and yes, they do add the automatic bar gratuity of $3 to it (15%). The automatic gratuity is added to anything called a bar item (soda, the light up things on the glasses for kids, specialty coffee, smoothies,) in addition to what we commonly think of as bar stuff.

Corkage fee for boxed wines

Does a corkage fee apply to boxed wine? What about single serving "juice box" wines? In the U.K. and Europe, wine is now being sold in plastic wine glasses sealed with a foiled cover.

I think the purpose of the fee is to keep cheap wines out of the dining room. Your bottle of wine should be worth more than the corkage fee!

Also make sure it does not a knife on it. Some have a small knife on it to cut the foil on top. If the wine opener has a knife it will not make it through Airport Security if it is in your carry on bag.

You can always ask for glasses at the bar (plastic if on pool deck) and bring your first glass with you to dinner. On the Magic recently we had late seating and would stop at Diversions for a snack and a drink before getting cleaned up for dinner, and when leaving ask for two wine glasses which they cheerfully provided. If we wanted a second glass of wine in the dining room they have several reasonably priced wines by the glass between $6 -$7 I recall...
