Default Baggage check for liquor before boarding?

Do they check your baggage before boarding for liquor? I have heard there is a table set up for you to declare it before boarding. I have heard there in not a problem to take a bottle on board in you suitcase. Also read you could buy it on board and drink it in your room just so long as not duty free liquor. Which is it? Sailing out of Galveston on Royal Caribbean in early July. Anyone have recent experience on this issue?

The fine print in the majority of Cruise Line Brochures state that "liquor is prohibited from being brought personally on board". Still many people do bring their own for personal consumption by packing it into their checked luggage. If you make a liquor purchase on shore or at a port, your bags are scanned as you reenter the ship and you are "subject" to having the purchase kept for you until the last night of the cruise. Any shipboard purchase of alchol is kept until the last night of the cruise also. We found that the small plastic nips worked well and I put some of each of our favorite types of alchol in small plastic water bottles since we both prefer different types of drinks.
Bon Voyage

It depends on the cruise line. RCCL is probably the most lenient. You can buy liquor on board and the last time we cruised with them, you could bring wine or beer on board.
With Carnival you can bring wine or champagne on with you, no liquor or beer. On Regal cruise line you may buy liqour on board for your use in your room. If cruise lines would have happy hours and more reasonably priced drinks they would make a lot more money in the bars and people would not try to sneak it on board.
