I think you could bring 2 bottles each. It doesn't specify any quantity on their website. This is what I found:

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.

Enjoy!

The cruise answer book says 2 bottles but the cruise contract makes no mention of any limit.

We did the Crown last year out of San Juan. In their screening process, they have a "duty Free shop" We ended up getting about four cases of wine, ( between 12 of us) and four bottles of Rum. had NO problems at all. We went through the wine each night getting ready for dinner, and always had at least three bottle at our table.

Default Booze

[color=#444444]Every cruise line has a policy, I have seen people get away with getting many bottles onboard and I have seen security collect the bottles for return on the last day.

Remember, the cruise lines make a profit off selling booze, so you know the drill.

The cruise lines have a corkage charge, contact them for current policy and cos for each bottle.

3-litre bottles may be an option for single corkage charge, Remember the weight limits with the airline.
