going on the crown princess in september. 1st cruise with them, prior ones carnival and NCL. Wondering if anyone recently came off the ship to advise on ship, employees, etc. Also reading posts from a few months ago that folk were putting alcohol in check in luggage and not getting it confiscated, still true?
We were on Crown Princess in Januaary Souther Caribbean route out of San Juan. Yes they allowed you to take liquor through the last security screening as long as it could fit in your carry on, in fact they were encouraging people to do this.
Hope this helps.
I just got off the Crown on July 23. When we checked in security asked if we had alcohol in our bags (they saw bottles on the security check). We told them no, it was just wine. They let us through.
I did hear of others that had their alcohol confiscated when trying to carry it on. I'd say pack it in bubble wrap, then pack it well but put it in your regular luggage, even if you have to stop on the way to the pier to get it in there. That's what we did and it was no problem to do so.
