Default Bringing on wine (Dawn)

This may be a silly question, but I have only sailed Carnival before. Can you bring wine onboard, and can you bring your own wine to dinner? It's not really that big of a deal, but I do have my favorites. Thanks!

You may bring wine onboard but there is a $15 corkage charge. This what they charge per bottle for opening in the dining room.

Take care,
Mike

From what I understand they charge you when you get on board and not when you bring it to the dining room... I will know more next week when I sail. Debbie

I had my sister's two bottles of wine in my carry-on and they took them from me. You have to pay the $15 corkage fee (whether you drink them or not) before boarding the ship. I had my two bottles of wine in my luggage which they did not find. On the other hand, my friend had his in his luggage and they did find his. We thought something was up, when his luggage was never delivered to his stateroom. When he inquired, they took him down to the luggage storage area and there he found his luggage with a large red tag with the word "LIQUOR" on it. They had him open it and remove the wine. All bottles of wine was delivered to our cabins on the last night of our cruise.

A friend told us that they take their favorite wine and it is available in a "wine box". They strictly take it for in-cabin use. According to them, they have never had their wine detected when packed in their checked luggage

Default Thanks so much!

I thank you all for the info - I don't particularily want to pay a $15.00 corkage fee on a $25 bottle of wine - seems a little silly. I'm sure what they have to offer will be more than adequate!
Last time we sailed however, we did bring in some Bahama mama's or some goofy thing like that, and then bought their insulated beverage thingy's in the gift shop. On party nights by the pool we'd mix 'em up in the room and take them.
Can't wait till the 22nd!
Anni
