My husband and I are getting ready to go on a RCCL cruise next week? I've seen the wine list and think it's very limited. If we pack a few bottles in our suit cases will the cruise lines know? We're wine enthusiasts and can't imagine not being able to at least bring a bottle or two of our favorites on board. We were able to carry on wine on another cruise line, but I'm not sure about RCCL
As far as I know, yes you can carry-on some wine to consume in your room. You may also be able to bring a bottle to dinner and have the wine sewart serve it, but you may have to pay a corkage fee. What ship are U cruising on?
If you bring on Woodbridge Mondavi brand you will not have to pay a corkage fee in dining room. I was told this is a brand they carry on board and no extra fee is charged.

Hi, I too would like to bring some wine onboard. I typically drink Mondavi Woodbridge, and am surprised the ship would allow me to "bring my own" Does one need to be sneaky, or is it just OK to show up with wine in hand????? Would love to hear more about this if anyone has had experience... Thanks, Cindy
I am pretty sure I read on a site this week that RCCL charges $8 corkage. I have been trying to find the site again to double check that figure for you but to be honest I have been doing so much cruise surfing in happy anticipation of our cruise (Explorer in May) that the details sometimes get blurry. If I find it again I will post it for you. I do remember thinking it was not an extravagant fee, certainly much less than restaurants we encountered on our last trip to San Francisco. Happy Sailing!
Although we only brought one bottle of our own wine, a couple that we met on board brought a case on. They even brought their own glasses, appropriate for the different wines they were drinking. They gave all to the wine steward and it sounds like he did a fine job.
