Yea, alot of folks take wine, beer, whiskey, and others of some sort, in there suit cases, carry on's, and every otherway they can. They smuggle on soft drinks, and any other type of beverage they can think of, just to help save them a few dollars, or at least thinking they're saving a few dollars anyway. And actually get it aboard.

I have a good friend that carrys at least 3 fifths of Old Charter on every cruise. And thats twice a year.

Me personally, I don't want to carry anything I don't have too. The lighter the better.

Good Luck and happy cruising;
David

We have never tried to take on alcohol but do take our own water and Pepsi because we are not Coke drinkers. We do not "smuggle" it on as suggested because you are ALLOWED to bring a reasonable amount We put it in our carryon and it gets inspected when we check in. They are making sure we didn't open the carton and put in beer to "smuggle" it in.
