...correction...pepsiholics that is ! It is just a kind of crap shoot on the alcohol, I think. Against regulations but lots of people like to try sneaking it onboard. Some win, some loose. It may very well be turning into a fun kind of thing to do when boarding. There is one review on "another board" that says NCL is getting harder on the people who try...to the point of being very rude about it. I have always read that it was kind of an embarrassing but funny experience with no real hard feelings toward those who do try. Of course, this probably varies from ship to ship, as many other things do.
