Is it okay to...

Bring your own Liquor on board the ship? I have a favorite brand of wine that I know the ship will not offer. Is it okay to bring a bottle and keep it in our room?

Thanks, Dawn

Though some lines "say" their policy is no liquor brought onboard, not many enforce it. And ALL that I know of allow wine and champagne.
If you want the wine served in the dining room they will charge you a corkage fee.

Question for Everyone,

If one does bring a bottle of wine to drink in one's cabin, how does one uncork it?

Without being able to take a corkscrew through the airport (even in your checked luggage), and being it's unlikely the ship is going to let you bring one aboard, just how do you uncork that puppy?!

Smash it? I dont know mabye they have them on board so you can borrow one to open it. Or mabye you can open it half way at home then pull it off when you get on board? Do they allow swiss army knives?

Can you stand one more comment. If you bring your own wine; I would bring it in my carry on luggage. The way they toss luggage around at airports I'd hate for you to arrive with wine all over your clothes.

Ahhh Thomas,

You just gave me an idea!

What you could do is uncork the bottle at home and then pour it into a bottle with a screw top. That way you could just unscrew the top once you're aboard ship.

Glad you thought of it!

Happy cruising in 3 weeks,

No Swiss Army Knives either, I'm afraid........

But there is a solution -- see below for the answer!

Hey, what about purchasing a cheap corkscrew from a store in your embarkation city. Then leaving it behind on the ship for the next guest to use. Just a thought.

Re: Is it okay to...
Are you serious, you can't put a corkscrew in your checked baggage at the airport? I know you can't carry it on board, I can't even bring my crochet hook, but in your checked baggage? How is anyone supposed to get it when it is in the plane???? I am really confused. But that is a good solution, uncork and put it in a screw top bottle. I have never had trouble bringing soda or wine aboard the ship. They have charged me if I bring my wine to the dinning room. On my cruise in March, my TA gave everyone a bottle of champagne. They did not charge us to open this bottle though. It was because it was bought aboard the ship. Next time I would mention that the bottle was a gift from you TA and bought onboard.
