Default Champagne in carryon?

Our family is taking first cruise. We like nice champagne and wanted to bring a bottle for each stateroom for first sailing. There are 3 rooms. Can't we just have them in our carryon or do we need to seriously try to sneak them on board in our checked suitcases?

I considered trying to sneak it onto the ship and decided, in the end, just to go on the website and purchase it in advance. That way, there's no need to worry about the bottle breaking in your carryon.. not to mention the fact that the airlines will most likely confiscate it. For the Korbel (not great, but acceptable) and strawberries, it was about $40. It will be waiting in our cabin when we arrive.

We've gone on RCCL twice and brought whatever we want. We brought the wine/champagne in our carryon - other stuff in our suitcases - never a problem. We were on Princess last year and did the same thing - no problem. We brought wine on board from Grand Cayman and they let us walk through security with it.
Have fun!

Did they charge you anything for doing this?

RCCL does not care about bringing on wine/champagne, only restricts hard liquor. There is a "corkage" fee if you want to bring it to the dining room to drink, but no problem having it in your cabin. With respect to hard liquor, it is really not worth the effort of "smuggling" it on - just purchase it in the duty free shop on board and pay the extra $9.50 to bring it to your cabin.

I always bring a bottle of scotch and ab bottle of rum and I've never had to "Smuggle" and it's never been a paroble. I just put it in my carryon and walk right through. The guys at the scanner are looking for weapons and don't seem to care about booze.

You can get a package of a few bottles for a very reasonable price. We're lucky, our TA has champagne set up for us when we arrive in our cabin. She's wonderful!

Hi there, you posted on a really old Royal Caribbean thread. They have since changed their rules and don't allow any alcohol, including wine or champagne to be taken on.

Carnival allows one bottle (750ml) of wine or champagne per person to be taken on.
