Default ringing food & beverages aboard

Are you allowed to bring any food and beverages (non-alcoholic) aboard to put in your cabin? Are all cruise lines rules the same?

No reason to bring food. In fact, in most ports you are not supposed to take food off or bring food on the boat, even though lots of people pack a lunch off the buffet line for excursions, it usually violates the islands/countries laws to do so.

On RCCl boats, soda seems to be allowed, liquor is not, (wine is to some extent) but lots of people smuggle it in their checked luggage, (there are lots of threads about this on the boards).

Not all cruiselines are alike. I hear Carny is strict on bringing any beverages on board, but having never sailed on any other line, I cannot say for sure.

Most of the rooms have a small refrigerator in them with very expensive items, (like mini bars in hotels), but you can ask your room steward to remove the items, and use it to store your soda, etc.

no need to bring food aboard there is plenty to choose from. The beverage policy varies from line to line. Most lines have a soda card or sticker that you can purchase for unlimited fountain sodas for the duration of your cruise ($22.50 on Princess for 7 day cruise for example). Some cruise lines allow you to bring wine and champagne aboard. Hard liquor is not allowed to be brought aboard on most of the lines.
