Default Celebrity increases drink prices causing extreme anger

One week after ending the 123 promotion Celebrity has increased drink prices pretty much across the board making the Classic drink package worth a lot less. Many drinks and wines that previously were under the classic package now can only be found in the Premium package. For example, wife drinks Baileys and I drink Jack Daniels. When I purchased my cruise both these drinks were under the classic package and was one of the reasons I chose it. They are now under the premium package. I know the legalities of them being able to change prices but apparently this was done to many, many drinks.

People in other locations are absolutely livid about these changes, feeling that Celebrity did this as something planned so that people would then go out and buy the upgrades to Premium package on board.

How do you find out what the drink prices are before sailing? If you want to upgrade, you need to do it before you get on board. I suppose the fancier martinis is will be more than $8, but what about just a glass of wine?

Right now everything is in flux and changes may be made so I would wait a week or so. The drink package may be upgraded on board.
