Hi, Dana ...
Celeb has changed their "rules" recently. At least according to our last documents compared to those from six months ago.
Before, personal alcohol (the hard stuff) from duty-free shops and ports was supposedly prohibited but not enforced that I ever came across. Now Celebrity "reserves the right" to confiscate duty-free liquor.
Cute story. My husband was cooling his heels outside Hilo Hattie's in Hilo. He had a roll-aboard suitcase next to him. Another fellow, also heel-cooling while his wife shopped, inquired as to why Queeg had a suitcase. Why, for wine and rum and Scotch and such as that, the captain (my husband) replied. (We were supplying for more than just ourselves, I hasten to add.)
"You won't be allowed to take it on board !!!" said the other fellow.
The ever-patient Queeg pointed out that we were in America, that the local Safeway supermarket was NOT a duty-free shop, and we had every expectation that there would be no problem.
The fellow processed this information and asked, "Where IS that Safeway?"
