Default Pringle cans to hide beer!

Why?
They allow you to bring beer on board already, so smuggling is not needed.

Well.. I do have to laugh over this one


And nope, they don't allow you to openly bring beer onboard, but there's no limit on the # of bags they allow you to check, so about 6 extra suitcases full should do the trick

Sorry but you are not allowed to bring any alcohol on board except wine or champagne. People do try and smuggle but we have seen many confisations while boarding.

From CCL web site: Guests are prohibited from bringing alcoholic beverages on board. However, wine enthusiasts may bring fine wine or champagne on board only during embarkation at the beginning of the cruise.

If you like Margarita or hard alcohol, scope bottles disguise it but I really didn't drink it when I took it. I was to excited for the drinks of the day.

I know I might be reaching for a solution to your problem, but why not just buy what you want to drink on board? Do you honestly drink that much?

Just my opinion, take it as you like.

A suitcase full of potato chip cans just might draw more attention that a suitcase full of beer.

You can purchase beer to be waiting in your cabin for you upon embarkation. Call the Carnival Bon Voyage department. Hard liquor starts at $40 per litre and beer is $4 per bottle.

No, it is not cheap but it is a hassle free way to have it available in your cabin.

I don't drink at all, but I took a case of Bud for some friends who flew from Wisconsin. Not disguised in potato chips, but in the original box, in a checked suitcase in the middle of clothes. Also a bottle of JD and some scotch. Made it to the cabin just fine.

What will happen if you do get caught is they confiscate the stuff and give it back to you after the cruise. No one gets thrown into the brig or gets put in stocks, etc.

Don't really know what the meaning of "fine wine" is either. Back in the day, I thought MD 20/20 was pretty classy for a Saturday night.

I don't advocate violating Carnivals' rules, but........there are those who let their sweet children run wild all hours of the night and enjoy the "adults only" hot tubs, bring irons onboard, slam doors at 3 am., and don't forget the innocent ones that by that low price alcohol and roll it into a blanket to get on board at the ports visited. The list goes on and on.

The guy who brings a case or two of suds onboard does not annoy me. In fact, I probably won't even know about it. Those inconsiderate clods? Now there's a bother.

That sounds like the sort of questions one might hear at a "Friends of Bill W." meeting onboard.
