I have taken homemade chocolate chips cookies on board. Not sure if it is allowed, but it sure was good to have them. I carried them in my purse, didn't try to hide, but no one said anything.

MrPete, If you had tried my CC cookies, you would understand why my family wanted them with them.
I can't believe that taking snacks on board is the "now I have heard it all" of your cruising experiences...

Default For the "Now I've heard it all"

We'll be in our port area for several days before our cruise. The kids want to make fudge and their favorite cookies for the pre-trip and I don't want to have to chuck them if we haven't finished before our cruise.

I think it's a reasonable question.

After all - waste not, want not.

It will only preceed someone asking how to take food off.

Now, how do I get to try out one of your CC cookies? So good, that you can't do without them amongst all the other food offered?

Reminds me of a mom debarkation story:

She had an apple in her hand and was informed that she couldn't take it with her and she would need to throw it in the trash can beside him. She looked at him with a funny look and proceeded to eat the apple right there. When finished, she she stated, "See, you can take it with you".

I think it's a perfectly valid question. In particular, I'm cruising on the Liberty in November (transatlantic repositioning cruise), and wonder about bringing food on board from the European port calls. I love the Spanish "charcuterie" (hams, sausages, etc.) and French cheeses (unpasteurized milk), which are not available in the States, and would like to buy them in Malaga, Barcelona, etc., and bring them on-board to enjoy during my trip.

I do not know the answer to the question, but I'd like to know myself.

Since the airlines no longer offer meals we carry snacks. Granola bars, crackers and that sort of thing. We carry enough for the trip home too so of course we bring them aboard.

You should check with the cruise lines. I know there are restrictions about bringing certain foods into the US and other countries (with fruit and meat being two of them).

Hi, Darcy,

I know that there are restrictions on imports when coming back to the States, but I was thinking of buying the hams and cheeses in Spain for my consumption during the transatlantic voyage.

travelcruiser:

You should check directly with the cruise line. I know they won't let you bring certain things on board. It has to do with sailing from country to country and what their rules are. I'd hate to spend the money and then have them take it away and dispose of it.

Darcy
