[QUOTE=Kimbopolo;1302853]On our next (Carnival) cruise we intend to bring our own wine and pay the corkage fee.
1) I plan to bring the wine in a carry on - I don't want to appear to be hiding it. So do I just make sure they see it and explain it for what it is?
2) Do they keep the bottles for us or do we carry them to the dining room? [/QUOTE]
1) One bottle per ADULT in their carry on
2) They let you carry it on ... after they check to see if it is sealed ... if you consume it in your room ... no additional fee ... if you choose to bring it to the dining room they will charge you a "corkage" fee ($10.00 I think)
