Default BYOB?

What are the rules about bringing your own alcohol on board a cruise ship? (We will be cruising on Holland America, if that makes a difference.(

It does make a difference which cruiseline. Princess allows two bottles of wine pp, but no hard liquors. Most of the other lines don't even allow that. You might want to ask this question over on the HAL board for a faster answer.

Hi, spikesgirl, The "official" rule for Princess is one bottle per person....but I know folks have said they usually don't have a problem with taking 2 bottles pp.

Reference the Alcohol Policy on Page 18 of the most current Cruise Answer book - the pdf can be downloaded from the bottom of this webpage.

kmparsons, did you have a chance to check the Holland America website? I've never been on that line - sorry can't help you with that. Enjoy your cruise.

When we sailed last summer, we were told (by a Princess CSR)two bottles each was a maximum, but others brought an entire case with them! They slapped a luggage tag on it and I'm assuming (possibly incorrectly) it made it to their cabin.

Princess seems to be pretty lenient about wines, but hard on liquors. However, when we were in Huahine a few years ago, my DH carried two bottles of a Grand Marnier on board without a problem. think it probably boils down to who's manning the gate.

Some of the lines, including Princess, will let you send a bottle of liquor to yourself in the cabin. Since they have the same parent company, I'll bet HAL will let you send yourslef a bottle of Jack, (or whatever).

Default Read your brochure under Drinking

Go to HAL web site and read the passage rules and regulation, don't depend of answers that are not confirmed.
Some cruise lines have a corkage charge.

Look at the terms and conditions, Wine and Bubbly may be permitted under special conditions, if the size of the bottle is not specified, then order a 3 litre or even a 5-litre bottle of fine wine.
Always look up a dealer or retailer at port of debarkation and purchase there to avoid the airline charges.
