breaking the rules or not, i'm still bringing a bit of vodka filled to the top so it doesnt slosh when shakend..in an old beauty product bottle.

Cokes for 7 days at 45 each are crazy but i wont pay 3 or more for a coke...thats insane. I still cant believe that they are charging like that for cokes in the first place. I used to work in a restaurant and drinks are what they make thier money on. A soda coming out of a machine costs about 10 cents. My husband maybe drinks 1 soda a day...i'll have a card and i'll buy give him his fix once a day.

As for water...what does the water taste like onboard? This is my DH's drink of choice. Tea is good but he wont drink it after lunch due to the caffiene.

The water on the Glory was fine. I filled up the bottles I took on board at embarkation. We had no problem drinking it. They are pretty strick about the purification of their water.

Nurseypoo,

I don't like the iced tea on the ship at all. But, I make my own using the tea bags provided. My tea tastes great. It takes a little more effort, but it is worth it. The ship also has decaffenated tea, which I use in the afternoon and at night. I love tea, and basically drink it all day long!!

Hi! for me.. I use stubbyholder/koozie everytime.. The Koozie is a great approach to keep your wine bottles as well as beverages neat and also relaxing all the period.

I use those small flavor packets that you pour into a glass or water bottle. Also the Lemanade isnt bad and neither is the Pashion fruit punch they have in the mornings.

I just got off of the carnival conquest sept 11-18, my friends brought a 6pk of sodas each, and water as well. They did not have any problems bringing it on board. Since Carnival no longer has punch, we also brought those "mio" squirters to use with the water for a change of pace. I cannot drink alcohol (medical reasons), so, I have to get my kicks off of sodas, tea or water. I have never "enjoyed" the tea they have. I usually get a soda card..but this time, I brought a couple of sodas for myself..and when I went to port, I picked up a couple of sodas. I found them from a dollar to two dollars at each port..alot cheaper if you dont need a lot of sodas...I know my friends got a couple of alcoholic drinks ..they were about eight to ten dollars each..and these were not the drink of the day..those are about 12 or so dollars. However..I guess to each their own and whatever floats your boat..always love my cruising experience...

yes there is no problem bringing on 12 20 ounce drinks per person and 1 bottle of wine pp as long as you carry it on.

The rules now are different from when this thread was started 4 years ago.

Wow! This thread got brought back to life with some very old information. It is 1 bottle of Wine/Champagne per person 21 and over. They ask that you limit non-alcoholic drinks to a 12 pack per person. They want all such liquids to be carried on. The Liquor and Beverage Policy can be found in the link below.

I can remember the early days of Carnival when you could bring as much booze as you could carry.How things have changed!

So, if Carnival's website does not include the new non-alcoholic beverage restrictions, are they enforcing a new policy without notification?

Here's what the website says:
"On embarkation day, each guest may bring a small quantity of non-alcoholic beverages on board and only in their carry-on luggage. A small quantity is considered a maximum of 12 bottles and/or cans, 20 ounces each or less." Here's the link: Cruise Deals, Discount Cruises, and Cruise Vacations | Carnival Cruise Lines

If you are sailing soon I'd suggest you print out the section referenced, and if you have any problems show it to the appropriate person(s).

We were just on a cruise last month and the the only time the drinks were that much is when they are in the special cups. Like the Whale Tale or Blow fish. The others were still $8. We did not know it until we bought a blow fish cup. Live and learn. we cruise again on January 20th

Sisternature is right--we were on the Dream a month ago and the drink of the day was $8 dollars. They did have some special drink holders like a blow fish or some such that ran about $12.dollars.

Our friends just came off the Dream a few months ago and had their bottle of scotch taken and a bottle of wine also. They gave it back to them at the end of the cruise. He put his scotch in a clear smaller bottle and his wife took a larger size bottle of wine. They were told only one regular size bottle of wine per person was allowed. So they figured they had to go through the suitcase to see the scotch since it was not in a regular liquor bottle.

I just got back from a Carnival cruise. I'm not going to say *who* but I rode with 4 women in the park and ride van from to the port. They just happened to be staying in a cabins on my same deck a few cabins down. They had each smuggled a bottle of booze in their "checked" luggage. Three of the four got their bottles confiscated. One got through so she had her bottle the whole trip, no problem. The other three got their confiscated bottles back at the end of the cruise.
