Oh oh oh good question! I've heard there are companies that do this - deliver "gift" packages to cruise ships just prior to boarding. Someone in our group just did something really nice for us, so we were thinking a nice way to show our thanks would be to have a bottle of his favorite liquor delivered to his cabin. We're leaving out of New Orleans. Anybody have any ideas? I ran across a company awhile back but (stupid me) didn't save the information.
Once I tried to have flowers delivered to friends on a ship. I called a florist who ordered through a Miami florist. I gave them the names and the cabin number. The flowers never got to the room. When I called the florists, both mine and the one in Miami. I got told that they had receipts signed by someone from Carnival that the flowers were received aboard ship. They said this happens a lot. I know it is flowers and not beer but I am just trying to say that somehow outside deliveries do not make it. Perhaps you could order through Carnival. Just a suggestion that could save you some aggravation in the long run.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
You are not going to get beer delivered to your cabin by anyone other than a CCL bar wait staff. You can only bring a couple bottles of wine onboard for personal consumption and you cannot bring beer ot spirits onboard.
I found a company that delivers gifts of wine, flowers, candy, etc. to cruise ships prior to departures. It doesn't mention anything about liquor and beer, but I'm trying to find the company that I heard of before. They delivered a case of Corona and a bag of limes - that's just the coolest gift ever! =) I don't know if I'm allowed to post the site that does the other gifts... if anyone's interested, reply to this message and we'll figure it out.
We have done this several times and yes you will get beer delivered. I usually have hubby a case delivered if we have a fridge. Here is my collection of companies: www.giftsahoyinc.com 1-800-442-AHOY www.shipboardgifts.com 604-929-3272

Good luck and enjoy. And by the way the reason Carnival and other lines allow these is that they have a charge for this service. It gets added to your bill by the delivery company and they pay Carnival.
Well I looked at the few websites, and thought they were all pricey.... I was just looking to maybe bring beer onboard. And with flying in the day of the cruise, I did not want to pack beer in my suitcase.
But I read someone else's message, and they point out in nassau they got 15 beers from a stand in Nassau, and they were able to bring them onboard.. And that is my first stop.
