Gotta love the hunt for the extra buck!
It sounds like an enormous amount of bookkeeping having the port security checking & keeping tabs on the number of bottles being carried in. At the point of them seeing the bottles they then have to log it in & the ships crew now has to single out the checked bags for bottles also and then compare records from the port security whereas NCL charges for any bottle no matter where it's found.
I'm not saying it's impossible, but the amount of effort put in to catch a limited number of people does sound like a lot for what they'll be getting back.
Either way it time to invest in a few Rum Runners
for the next cruise need them or not.
