Question Yet, another question about wine....

Since I'm bringing my own 4 liters of home-made wine (yeah..... ) I'd like to know how big is the refrigerator in the staterooms, in our case we have C319 balcony in Caribe deck. Assuming there's a refrigerator inside..!!

Will I be able to fit them in there?

And yes, there's NO better wine than home-made wine.....well, just IMO ... !!!!!

The fridge is a mini-fridge. A bottle of wine has to be laid on its side so be sure to bring a stopper.

Also, double check your limits. I don't remember how Princess states its alcohol restrictions. It may be 750ml pp.

nope, you will have to lay the bottles down on their sides, might be a better idea to ask your room steward for an ice bucket and ice, and chill them one bottle at a time as you want to drink them, think that Princess allows two standard wine bottles per person

If you look at the Passage Contract for Princess in section #5 it will tell you about what you can bring onboard.

Thank you all.

One very last dumb question, do they have Cranberry juice, if so is there any charge for it like for the soda?
I know they have orange juice and iced tea for free but was wondering about cranberry juice if anyone knows.

If i recall you can get cranberry juice at Horizon Court buffet, no charge. I would think that you could also get it at any of the bars as it is a common mixer for cocktails, don't know if there would be a charge at the bar.

My guess would be that anything coming from the bar comes at a cost, but you might be surprised.

Hey another wine maker welcome. My dad is from Portugal and learned how to make wine from his dad and so on. We had some good wine this year. Someone asked me what water I mix to make my wine. I looked at his blankly. Water why would I ruin perfectly good juice with water??? My Dad's grape vines make a strong red wine. My grape vines makes a nice white wine. Here's a picture of it.

Obviously none of these folks have cruised Princess. We did almost a month maybe 15 months go. Boarded with our handcart and 2 cases wine. No sweat .Unless its changed recentlyno limits on wine at embarcation.

Default Alcohol policy????

What is the rationale for wine and champagne only? I do not drink either one but enjoy a couple of good beers.

my guess would be its all about $$$$, thinking that the average passenger would not consume alot of wine and or champagne, whereas beer, cocktails are huge sellers

They use the term one bottle per person, No specific volumn.
Double check the policy, I have taken a 3,000 ml (3-litre) bottle many times in past.
Princess may make a policy change, they did charge $15 corkage charge in restaurant on a past cruise in Jan. 2011.

Never had a problem....My cousin has brought 2 cases on board for the 2 pf them....No, they weren't going to drink it all, but were going to drop a case off in Hawaii to another relative.....who didn't want to pay the postage...Just happened to work out. They used a separate suitcase....for 2 cases and no problem. I usually bring a bottle for every 2 days that I am on board...with Princess, I have never had a problem......I have seen people who have brought a case of bottled water on board also without problem. I usually buy 2 bottles of water and refill those from the tap...A bottle of water is easier to carry around that the kind I take to the gym....and the bottled water is expensive on board....
