Cee Cee, thanks fot the heads up. The table, by the gangplank is the same thing Celebrity uses and some get away with the booze, some not. As for Trish and the water bottles, well, I know lots who have gotten away with bringing it on in water bottles. I guess it just depends and I am beginning to think it's not worth the effort. We are thinking of just ordering a bottle for our room. We have heard the price is out rageous, but still cheaper and easier than hitting the bar every time we want something.
ps they x-ray the bags and will call you down to the luggage area if they spot booze I have heard.
