Default Change of Alcohol Policy?

Is the rumors true? Can you now bring wine & champagne onboard to enjoy in your cabin

Heard it earlier on the Board here. Some believed it, some not. I'll try to confirm it with RCCL -- but might get different answers. Princess still lets you bring wine onboard for your own celebration and I think they handle it quite well. People seem to just bring on a bottle or two and Princess welcomes you with a smile.

As I mentioned in another thread. My friend, who is a moderator of a cruise board, was on the Thanksgiving Navigator sailing.

She mentioned to us, that you were now allowed to bring unlimited wine onboard. You could NOT, bring a bottle to the dining room, even with the corkage fee, to enjoy at dinner. Setups in your cabin were at no charge.

Take your wine!

I do not for a second think that RCCL has changed policy and now allows you to bring all you want. Just not gonna happen folks. Your Buying drinks on ship is a huge source of profit for the cruise line.

That said, and IMO, carrying a couple bottles for cabin use should be no problem. Has never been a problem for us.


Have a great cruise!!!!!
