I'm sailing in January on AOS. Sneaking in beer doesn't seem worth it. When I sailed the same itinerary on Granduer in January 2001, you were actually allowed to purchase beer at the pier (after checking in) and bring it to your room. I carried beer right past the crew on my way in. I understand that's not done anymore?
If not, does anyone recall the price of a case of beer on board the ship? Including the price you pay that allows you to drink it in your room?
