Alan, although we have been to the U.K. twice in recent years, we have not done a European cruise since well before the crackdown. I took a bottle on at Tilbury, but that was some years ago. We have seen Princess and HAL squeal about it from Hong Kong and Tokyo to Vancouver and Valparaiso and Buenos Aires to Rio. Have had numerous Brits as table mates who have not said it was any different anywhere else.
That said, I have had crew members turn a blind eye and not say a word! It could be that they have had so many complaints that they are easing up a bit. I would hope so! I tried to find something on the Princess website about the policy but could not.
