In our cruse brochure that came with our cruise tickets, it does not say exactly how much. Last Summer we carried two six packs of bottled soda. Nothing was mentioned.

Two sixpakc is reasonable and we have seen many take on a case of soda without so much as a second glance. I would reserve it all for soda and if you need to re-supply at one of the ports. I would actually pass on the water and just bring a couple bottles with you and save the bottle. Refill them from the water dispenser or even tap water for that matter as the ships water is exceptionally good and often better than bottled.

I agree with Jim on the water. We usually bring 2-3 6 packs of soda with us.

Teresa,
You can bring cans of soda also. For the two of us we bring a 12 pack of soda and 12 pack of water. I also back a 6 pack of boxed orange juice to take on excursions. When our 3 sons cruised with us, we would take 2 cases of soda and a case of water in one of those fold up grocery carts. Enjoy. Teresa

We always bring a 6 pack of water and soda and some wine on board at embarkation. That gets you through your first day at sea. We roll the wine in clothes and pack in our luggage....they don't want you to bring your own imbibements on board......no need to overload yourselves with lots of soda and water at embarkation because you can buy at your ports of call.....usually for less $$. Also, you can buy adult beverage in port for cheap and just carryback on board in your beach bag to keep in your room. Of course large purchases of adult beverage will be packaged and delivered to your stateroom at the end of the cruise. Have fun!

Does the cases of water and soda have to be put inside of a suitcase or bagged?

your adult beverage carry-on comment from ports of call is potentially inaccurate. I've been on lotsa cruises before 9/11 where that was true. Post 9/11 the cruise lines have taken search and siezure to a whole new level. Everything gets scanned and booze will definitely be confiscated.

Now, if anyone has just sailed the Carnival Conquest or Paradise and has a different experience than what I've described, regarding confiscation of adult beverages, please respond.

Just off the Conquest, when you re-board after being in port, all bags go through x-ray on the ship and any and all booze is taken. Unless you are strapping bottles to your thighs and walking onboard you aint bringing booze back to your stateroom.

I brought 2, 6 packs of soda on board and oddly enough I didn't even drink all of them! And I am a very heavy pop drinker, usually like 4 cans a day. I don't know, being on the cruise I guess the urge just wasnt there? It was very odd, I ended up carrying one of the six packs off the ship at the end again.

If you're there a day early, there are lots of convenience stores around. There is also a WalMart and a Target on Merritt Island.

Does Carnival limit the amount of film you can bring onboard for your camera?

Carnival was not allowing anyone to bring Coke products on board. They have a deal with Coke Company. At check in they stopped a guy w/ diet coke and put it in the hold till he got off. Next guy had Mt. Dew which they allowed. I did not see Convience stores. We went right from airport on bus to ship (Valor) with no stops. Film was not limited but make sure you hand carry it.
Have fun. Karyn

I have a suggestion about film for you camera. My suggestion is to have the film developed on the ship, the price is about the same and then all the way home you can look at them and rehash the whole trip. And if you are like me I have film from my first cruise that I have yet to get developed, but on our second cruise had developed on board.

We took Coke onto the Elation last year with no problem. You are allowed to bring "fine wine" on board. (We brought one bottle of wine each). We had all of this in our carry-on.
Everytime we had film developed on the Elation they would give us a roll of 35mm film. (We had taken disposable cameras).

I am happy to hear that b/c I am a Coke drinker. It doesn't say on their webite under beverages that they only allow Pepsi products. I am going to print out that page and bring it with me in case there's a problem.

We brought in our backpacks, 1 bottle each of southern comfort, bacardi gold rum, vodka, and JW black label, & korbel along with 2-2 litre bottles of coke, had no problem getting on with it, they are too busy at checkin to worry about this stuff, although in jamaica we bought 2 cases of liquor and they were held and delivered to our cabin on the last night, they were xmas gifts so that was no problem.
