It depends greatly on the cruise line. NCL seems to be the strictest. Princess, Celebrity and H.A.L. are MUCH more liberal.

Carnival is also very strict. On embarkation, it is best to put the liquor in your checked luggage, not your carryon.

Im curious on this one too. How hard is it to get alcohol, especially underage, on Princess cruises?

It should be pretty difficult - I believe drinking age on Princess is 21 (will have to check), but your S&S card will be encoded with your birthdate so if you are younger htan 21 when you board you should not be served alcohol.
