You are allowed to bring wine, but they charge a cork fee. I think its like $10 or something. You arent allowed to bring beer, if you get caught sneaking it they would probaly take it. Not sure about soda, probally ok if you only bring like a pack of 12 cans.

Thank you,

If I bring my own wine from home to be used in my cabin....why do I have to pay $10.00 corkage fee.......how do they even know I have it. I will be uncorking it myself.

The official answer is no outside liqour of any sort.

When they scan both your checked luggage & your carry on they will be able to see the outline of the bottle. Hence, the reason people smuggle by putting the liquor or wine in a different container. At that point they will ask you to give them the bottle. If it's in your checked luggage you will have to go down & claim your luggage -- it will not be delivered to your cabin. You can ask for the wine to be delivered back to you & pay the fee. They will hold the other stuff until the end of the cruise.

Sometimes you may get lucky & the liquor / wine will slip through.

You can bring wine, champagne, sodas and water onboard with no problem. The only time they'll charge a corkage fee is if you'd like to enjoy it in the dining room. No charge for in cabin consumption.

You can also order liquor from the ship's store, for in cabin consumption. There is a surcharge (I believe $9.50 /bottle at the moment), above the actual sticker price.

The liquor is so much cheaper by the bottle that even with the additional fee you would come out cheaper than dragging it with you.

Ok, let me try it this way, Can I purchase a six pack of beer on the ship to bring to my room? And of course how much and is there a place where I can check out the prices on line. We would love to sit in our room on the balcony while with the little ones it is hard to sit at a bar and enjoy ourselves so that is not a option. Reason for a balcony is so we can sit out and enjoy the view from our room and have a cocktail.....

You can smuggle it if you wish. You won't be the first and only one to do it.

You can buy rum in the islands and take it home. They will hold it in the basement or somewhere and deliver it to your room the day of debarkation. You will carry it through customs and there is a limit on how much you can bring back in. The stores on the island will tell you you can take more than you really can, so ask the purser or go to the debark talk before you buy fifty bottles!!!!!!

Have fun!!!!

Last summer we carried on 2 bottles of our favorite wine. We took it to the dining room 2 nights. Our waiter uncorked it and iced and served it. they never charged a corking fee. Also we put rum in our luggage. No problem. I don't think they xray your checked luggage. We put cans or soda and water in a soft sided rolling cooler with a luggage tag on it. This was delivered to our cabin with the rest of our baggage. I'm sure we could have also put beer cans in if we wanted.

Last year, Nov 2004, brought home rum in my luggage. My luggage was opened and all unpacked and put in a special holding area. I had to go claim it with officials. Alcohol is supposed to be hand carried on the airplane. Never, again will I put it in my luggage. Luggage was damaged!
