2 Questions
Im booked on the CB for my honeymoon in July. Can anybody tell me, if it's cheaper to buy beer on the ship and have it sent to your room for in-room consumption or cheaper to send it as a gift pre-cruise to your room? Also, do you have to make reservations for MUTS or any other shows on board? thank you

Something tells me that on the beer it will be a wash. On the reservations, no, everthing is firt-come-first-served.

My suggestion is to buy the beer at your first port of call and put it in your cabin refridge (or ice bucket).

I do not like to pay for onboard drinks, so I usually purchase my beer and soft drinks at the first stop and bring it aboard.

I am sorry, but I do not know what MUTS is.

Shows are usually on a first come first seated basis. There are NO reservations for shows.

MUTS = Movies Under The Stars

I thought that if you bought booze at a port, they take it from you when you get back on the ship. And then deliver it to your room the night before disembarktion

No hastle with beer or wine.

[size=24]Send it to yourself as a gift ... much better deal and they don't add the 15% gratuity to it. Believe you get 6 for the price of 5. As to buying on the ship, you can get a bucket of 5 for the price of 4 BUT they add the 15%. I've brought beer on often in my carry on luggage with no problem.[/size]

send it to your stateroom as a gift.
You can try to sneak aboard a six-pack in your carry-on tote when you come back from the islands, anything more like a 12-pack or a case will be taken by security and returned to you at the end of your cruise.
