Default From the airport to cruise check in...

Hi, I'm 18 years old and will be on my first cruise in early 2010.
I had a question, you know the airline 3-1-1 rule? the 3 oz liquids, 1 quart size bag rule... I read that after you get past airport security with that, you can purchase any sized liquids and take them on the plane with you (larger shampoo, etc) Does the 3-1-1 rule apply to cruises? Can i take larger shampoo bottles, sunscreen, etc on board?

Answers will be greatly appreciated

(Also, if i am wrong about the 3-1-1 rule, or if anyone has further info about it, PLEASE let me know. The last time i was on a plane i was about 1 years old.)

Hi Pine,
The cruiselines don't have the same liquid restrictions as the airlines do. Your carry-on will have to go through the same type of x-ray as the airport. Also, keep in mind, you'll find shampoo in your cabin, so you don't really have to take your own.

The previous post is correct, it applies to airport TSA security check only. You might need to bring your own shampoo/conditioner/body lotions because you like it or skin allergies, so feel free to pack it, but pack it in the suitcase.

I like to bring a larger bottle of body lotion, so I just put it in a ziplock bag in case it ruptures and pack it carefully in the suitcase. The small travel size products are ideal, but sometimes you need to bring a big bottle because the small ones are not enough.
