Hello! ^_^ Need to get schooled on Champagne!

Hi guys,

I'm located in Santa Clara. The lady and I will be going on a cruise in a month and really want to drink champagne over beer and liquor.

It's only a 3 day cruise so how many bottles will be sufficient? I'm looking to spend around 150-200 max.

I don't know anything about champagne , I did take a wine bike tour in Napa in the past so I have little knowledge of wine, but don't remember too much.

What is Champagne I know they are made from grapes like wine? Do people drink it to get drunk or buzzed or is it just for the taste, the history, respect and character?

Originally I was just going to buy what I always hear about. Dom Perignon or Cristal, but after doing some research on them I hear they are overrated.

Can anyone reccommend something that I can get in the bay area.

So we are thinking og getting two bottles. I want some thing sharp. Something that you can say a man drinks! haha. The lady wants something Fruity a and Bubbly.

Thanks guys.
