1st cruise on Celebrity - general Qs re misc. costs - Thanks!


We have just booked our first "big ship" cruise on the Infinity to Alaska. I'm having a bit of trouble trying to figure out costs for various things using the Celebrity website and would greatly appreciate the info if you have it or know where to point to it exactly. We're in a basic cabin, no suite or concierge class privileges...
1) The Aqua Spa pool and the Persian Garden - how much is it to use either? Is it a daily fee or a set fee for the whole cruise?
2) What is the usual bottom-price range for a bottle of red wine at dinner a) in the regular dining room, b) the specialty restaurant?
I have heard that sushi is available on board, does it cost extra?
The Cova Cafe offers apparently the only decent coffee on board, what is the approx price of a plain black coffee?
I'm trying to come up with a realistic budget -- thanks.

One more question:
What is the usual cost for a tux rental? Is it a per night rental or for the whole cruise?

Sorry I can't help you with the costs of the spa and I haven't been on Celebrity for a couple of years so don't remember the price of wine. However, I can tell you that the sushi is free. The set up a section of the Lido around 6pm as a Japanese restaurant and they have sushi buffet style. There is no extra charge for that. We always take late seating so we did have shushi as an appetizer but if you are early seating you won't take advantage of it unless you make a meal of it and forget the dining room. Enjoy your cruise.

Don't waste money on tux rental. DH can wear a nice suit. We cruise often and he has never rented a tux.

There is no charge to use the thelassotherapy pool on the Infinity, nor is there a charge for sushi (it's usually served in the informal restaurant in the evening, but it might be available at the spa buffet during lunch). If I remember correctly a bottle of wine in the main dining room costs about $20 plus 18% service charge. You can bring two bottles on board and pay a $25 per bottle corking fee if you bring it in the restaurant. The cost in the specialty restaurant is higher. There are coffee stations available in the buffet restaurant and, I believe, in the pool area, and the coffee is pretty good - no cost.
