Default How do you get a bottle waiting in your room?

Hey guys and gals me and the wife are almost ready for our First cruise. And we would like a bottle of Hard liqour ( Crown or Malibu ) in our room waiting on us. We would gladly pay but on the carnival web site I can't find where to.
Thank You for any help.
Wayne

Carnival does not want you to have a bottle in your stateroom. They want you to drink the beverages THEY have to offer. Your best bet is to put a bottle in your checked luggage, do not allow the room dude to see it, and NEVER take it out of your room.

You can order a liter bottle through Carnival's Bon Voyage department. It cannot be ordered online but you need to call them at: 1-800-522-7648.

Have your booking and cabin numbers, plus a credit card ready when you call.

You will need to ask them what brands and types of spirits they have.

Take care,
Mike

They don't list it on the website but you can preorder small bottles of hard liquor from the Bon Voyage dept. At least I recall that you used to be able to. If that doesn't work then I guess putting it in a plastic bottle and putting it in your checked bag might work too.

The "room dude" sees my ill gotten booty every single time I sail. Not only do they not mind, they generally get me more ice, cups and mixer if I need it. They dont give a rip about it. Tip him and all will be well..

I've ordered liquor for my room on my last two cruises and have a pending order for a Oct. 6th cruise. It's delivered all nice and wrapped up. Fruit punch , ice and some room rum and I'm good to go.

It was a well kept secret, that's why these boards are great.
