I am scubarick's mom. I did bring boxed wine on our last cruise. I packed it in the luggage and had no problem. We kept it cold in our fridge. We were on the Legend. I'm not sure all ships have the mini bars.
Scuba Rick wants to know if you work at Wegman's, if so which one. He works at Wegman's in Cicero NY.
You can buy those softside coolers that fold up and pack it in your suitcase, just keep plenty of ice in it. If the box gets too wet you can take the bladder out.
Thats a good idea, boxed wine. We might try this.
My BF's mother always brings boxed wine. She takes the bladder out of the box , throws the box away and packs the wine in a big zip lock bag, puts it in her checked luggage. No problem.
