NO, how do you expect Carnival to make any Money??...

You can bring a nice Wine, turn it in (your name is put on it) when you go on board, Carnival will charge you a $10 cork fee & you can drink it only in the dinning room....

That's not quite accurate. You can bring on one bottle of wind per person. If you want it served to you in the dining room there's a corkage fee. If you drink it in your cabin there's no fee.

Thanks for the scoop Bob! And does that one bottle of wine thing translate to beer?

************************************************** **
I don't read where you can take the wine to your Cabin, has to be checked in & drunk only in the Dinning room or Supper Club....
Now some will try to sneak the hootch in their luggage as always.....
Below is the Quote from Carnival....
***********
Guests are prohibited from bringing alcoholic beverages onboard. However, guests (21 years and older only) may bring one bottle of wine or champagne per person on board only during embarkation at the beginning of the cruise. A $10 corkage fee per bottle will be charged should you wish to consume this wine in the dining room or a $14 corkage fee per bottle in the Supper Club. Guests may bring a small quantity of non-alcoholic beverages.

I think the question could arise from their use of the words underlined above..."should you choose". It does not address if you "should choose NOT to consume the wine in the dinner venues.

They sell sample (airline) size bottles of rum, etc in the duty free shop onboard and allow you to take that with you at time of purchase without a requirement of where you may consume it. This is not the case if you buy anything larger than the samples.

PS I fixed the spelling Kuki made from wind to wine. I just couldn't imagine anyone opening a bottle of "wind" in the dining room !!! I hate when I have a case of the "winds" !!!

Beer or hard liguor is not allowed, but some people so try and sneak it on. If they want they can confiscate it. I was told they would return it after the cruise...
Myself, I put a twelve pk of beer in my suitcase and my sister put a plastic bottle of vodka in hers.... they did not say anything.
We always buy cheap stuff, so could careless if they took it, that's the chance you take... but we still had a decent bar bill and spent plenty of money in the casino...
Anyway, I can't stand wine or champange.

if you are interested in liquor you can call carnivals Bon Voyage office prior to sailing and order a bottle for your room it is slightly more than what you would pay on land but you don't risk it being taken. it will save you some money from your bar bill.
