I am well aware that HAL only allows you to bring wine and champagne on board, as far as alcohol is concerned. I'm not planning on bring a gallon jug of Malibu rum or anything - but I may bring on a 20 oz bottle of Malibu "water". Unless they open up and taste every bottle of water that is brought on board, I think it will get through. If not, oh well, there's $10 down the proverbial drain.
Don't worry, the ship will make plenty of money as I'm sure I'll try the cocktail of the day (a few times a day) at the very least.
