Default Royal Princess shipboard liquor


I understand that you can not bring liquor aboard the ship, but you can buy package liquor aborad the ship for consumption in your cabin. Also been told you can't have liquor in your cabin. Any body know which is right?

Thanks, Lee

my wife and i just completed a week on grand, and we observed that liqour could not be brought on in a carry on bag, but we did observe nieghbor suites with bottles arranged on their shelves. it appears these bottles were packed in regular luggage.if you go onto an island, say st thomas, and try to bring liqour back on board, it will be taken away and stored until the end of the cruise. also, if you buy liqour in the shops on board, it will be stored until the morning of debarkation. so the short answer is, unless you pack it, or sneak it back onboard in a sport bottle or water bottle, your drinks will come from the bar, one by one.

best regards

Just got off the Royal (3/23/02). Technically you are not allowed to carry on any alcohol except wine or Champaign. Have heard of some smuggling in on board via their checked baggage (not carry on).

You can purchase through room service 375 ML bottles of bourbon, rum, vodka, scotch and some others I can't recall :along with 3 -12oz cans of mix - i.e. coke, seven-up, tonic water or soda for approximately $15. A 15% gratuity is NOT automatically added to you bill, but I usually tipped the steward 2-3 dollars. Beer is also available by the six pack, but I don't recall the price.

Bar drinks are not that expensive, $3.25 - 4.50 plus the 15% tip, but if you want to sit out on your balcony and sip a few, then this is an alternative, plus you don't have to sneak it on
