Depends upon the cruiseline. Some lines don't have a problem, bring whatever you want.

Other lines that have a policy against bringing your own alcohol usually don't have a problem with doing so as long as you keep it confined to your room. Don't try walking around the ship with your own bottle in your hand. Be discrete and responsible and you probably won't have a problem.

They really don't want to lose customers because someone is drinking personal liquor in their room, but they really do want to lose customers who behave recklessly and disruptively.

We just got back from our cruise on the Brilliance of the Seas. We, personnally, brought 6 bottles of champagne on board. Of course, it goes through the x-ray. They just said to have a good cruise. We, also, know of others who brought other types of alcohol on board and did not have a problem. I think, where you will have the problem is, when you start hitting the ports and trying to bring alcohol on board, that is when they take it away until the end of your cruise. And, as Thomas said, depends on what cruise line you are on. Royal Caribbean seems ok.

I know many people who've brought alcohol onboard in their checked luggage on Carnival and not had it confiscated. Just make sure the bottle is plastic - don't want any nasty breakages to occur.

Default Re: alcohol

depends upon the cruise line and the security people. Most cruise lines do not allow it. However many people do sneak and smuggle liquor on board. Check your cruise lines policy. Some cruise lines (Princess for example) allow you buy bottles of liquor from room service for about the same (some times less) for what you would pay at home, no tax, and its duty free.
