As with others, I don't see the problem. You said you wanted to bring two bottles of wine onboard and you still can - one for each person over 21 is allowed.

Yes, in the past, HAL allowed people to carry on as much wine as they wanted - they did not want you to check them because of breakage and possible pilferage. So it's definitely a change from their past policies for those who enjoy drinking alot of wine. But their new policies are directly in line with most of the other mass-market cruise lines.

Some have a stricter policy. For example, NCL charges a corkage fee for every bottle of wine you bring on board no matter where you plan to drink the wine.

47 Cruises & Counting! Favorites: Paul Gauguin to Tahiti: Uniworld River Cruises in Europe; any of the Celebrity Solstice-class ships; Holland America for 12-nights in the Baltics & Russia; RCCL for 14-night Greek Isles, Turkey, & Croatia; Holland America for 14-day Alaska cruisetour; 10-night Canada/New England cruise; 21 days in Hawaii including a 7-night NCL cruise; Oceania for 25 days in Asia; & 3 months touring Europe by train. And many days spent in all-inclusive resorts!
