Default Taking my own wine

We're crusing Alaska this summer and we would like to take several bottles of wine we've been saving for special occasions. These wine would be enjoyed in our cabin rather than with dinner. I would appreciate any advise on taking wine onboard. Should we pack the bottles in our suitcases? Bring them in our carry-on luggage?
Thanks for any advise...

unless things have changed recently Princess allows you to carry-on i believe two bottles of either wine or champagne per person.

"We kindly request that you do not bring alcoholic beverages (other than wine and/or champagne) onboard for consumption. Alcoholic beverages that are purchased duty free from the ship's gift shop or at ports of call will be collected for safekeeping and delivered to your stateroom on the last day of the voyage. A member of our Security Staff will be at the gangway to assist with the storage of your alcoholic beverage purchases."

ONE bottle.

"other than wine/champange". I take it the quote was copied from Princess. Where does it mention 1 bottle?

The quote is from the Princess FAQ and the Passenger Contract.

You have to do some "digging" to find the one bottle reference.

Just an FYI I have taken bottles on board in the past and it has never been a problem. In fact I called ahead to make sure I was complying with the rules. They (Princess) just want you to know that it can not leave your room and you can only drink in your cabin. So if you really feel at a lost, then call princess direct and they can help you....... Going on Star July 6th to Alaska.

Default Here's where it states 1 bottle wine/champagne per person

From Princess website:

http://www.princess.com/learn/answer/index.jsp

At the bottom of this page, you can download the most current cruise answer book.

On page 18 under "Alcohol Policy" it states 1 bottle per person.

But, at each port, each person can carry another bottle of wine or champagne onboard.

You're welcome.

I posted for the benefit of the OPs second post - where in the Princess literature it specifically stated one bottle per person.
