Can you still buy bottles of booze thru Carnivals BV dept? I know its more expensive than land based but certainly cheaper than buying individual drinks. Second question is whether there is a price list and how extensive is the menu? My guess is standard types but would like some experienced folks to educate me before I call. Thanks in advance.

Donna, OP is after the ability to have a bottle of actual hard liquor in their cabin when they get there. Something I know that Carnival is rare for doing. Its not something you can order via BV online, only by calling and requesting. It's something I wish I had known before my Imagination cruise, and something that has me leaning towards Carnival for my next long cruise.

My opinions are mine and mine alone. They do not represent the opinions of The Walt Disney Company nor any of its subsidiaries.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Bon Voyage Department! I have myself a good laugh everytime my cruising buddies find the dreaded "pink slip" in their luggage because they've been busted trying to smuggle on booze.
Meanwhile, mine is safe and sound wrapped in a pretty bow.
However, Carnival did confiscate my Magic Bullet blender which I was a little peeved about. Never has been a problem before, but I guess with all the press from the engine fire earlier in the year they were really pushing the 'fire hazard' rules. Oh well, rocks vs. frozen was so bad.
Ordered a bottle of Jack Daniels from Bon Voyage dept. Cost was $58, well worth it considering the price of a mixed drink. It was for a 1 liter bottle, and I still bought drinks while out, got mixers before boarding. Was on a 6 day cruise. Would order again!!!!
