Default Valor Question

I sent the following message to Carnival twice at two different addresses and, after about two weeks, have not had a reply from either.

"We have booked the Mar 13 sailing on the Carnival Valor and have read the "Things to know before you go" page in your 2003-2005 brochure. Under the Liquor and Beverage Policy on that page, a statement reads, "Fine wine or champagne may be brought on board only during embarkation at the beginning of the cruise."

We want to be sure that we are not misinterpreting your policy and we ask, "Can we bring bottles of our favorite wine and champagne on board at embarkation for use primarily at sail away and for use at dinner?" (We understand that a corkage fee applies to use in the dining room.) If so, can we bring on board more than one bottle?

THANKS for your help!!
Jerry L. Jackson"

Do any of the readers of this board know the answer to the question above?

You can bring a bottle or 2 on board with you. You cannot carry that bottle to the sail away or carry it around the the ship. (If you want to drink it at sail away, grab some glasses from the buffet and open the wine in your room. Then carry those glasses of wine with you.) You can take it to dinner with you and yes, they will charge you a fee for that. We always carry the wine on and then pour ourselves a glass of wine before dinner and take the glass of wine to dinner with us.

Make your dream cruise come true!!

Dear jijlinda,
We have cruised with carnival 3 times before and have always brought 3-4 bottles of
wine to enjoy in our cabin. We pack them in our checked luggage wrapped in a towel and
plastic bag. We also put our clothes in a large trash bag inside our suitcase. If a bottle
breaks, our clothes will be safe. Carnival does not mind if you bring along your own
wine, they just charge you a fee if it is consumed in the dining room.
Happy Sailing............
Also sailing in the Valor in April.
