Default bringing wine on board

Does anyone know what the rule is about bringing wine and beer? Is there a limit to what we can take per person?

i have always carried soda and 2 bottles of wine in my carry-on and taken it too my cabin. no questions asked. i am going to pick up a 12pack of beer this next cruise and see if i can get it too the cabin also ( i will put this in my checked bag ). i think as long as you dont try to take a excessive amount you might get lucky. im sure others here will be able to give you better quantity amounts that are safe.

We always bring on 4-5 bottles of wine on board and haven't had any problems. We started doing this after I first cruise when we paid $75 for a bottle of wine that we can buy at home for about $30! We bring our bottle to the dining room and they will serve it with our dinner. I think they charged us a $10 corkage fee. We enjoy good wine with our dinners and have found that even with this corkage fee, we are able to enjoy a nicer bottle of wine for a much lower price.

Sure the alcohol will cost more in a restaurant than from your state store (as we have in PA) or your convenience store back home. Why is that justification for bringing your own on board. When I dine at a nice restaurant or join friends at their country club should I sneak some bottles of wine or liquor in with me because "the prices are so high?" Perhaps I should bring my own food along as well.

No need to sneak wine on board. Carnival does allow you to bring a couple of bottles. From their website:
******
Fine wine or champagne may be brought on board during embarkation only. If the wine and/or champagne is brought to the Dining room for consumption, a $10 corkage fee per bottle will be charged to the guest; otherwise, the guest may only drink the wine and/or champagne in the privacy of a stateroom.
******

Our TA had a 2 bottles of wine in our cabin upon our arrival. We brought one to dinner and were NOT charged a corkage fee. I thought that was a nice gesture on CCL's part. Perhaps it is up to the individual waitstaff?

Roxteaher,
Your TA bought the wine from Carnival so no corkage fee if the wine is bought through the cruise line.
