Default bringing drinks on board?

I know I've ask this about Norwegian cruise lines. Can you bring soda and bottled water on board in your luggage when you depart We will be sailing on the Explorer Of The Seas

I just called RCCL about this today and they said that they no longer require ANY beverages (even water) due to TSA restrictions. I took a cruise on carnival in September of 2007 and brought several cases of bottled water so either this is new, specific to RCCL or untrue.

Has anyone personally brought water onto RCCL in the past few weeks???

Cannot take it on the airline, but you can purchase it in the port city and bring it aboard. Always bring my diet MOXIE with me.

If it is in your packed luggage you can; just not in your carry-on.

That is very nice to know. For I'm hooked on Arizona caffeine tea rx-stress and nobody ever has it when we travel.

Will be placing a 12-pack in the luggage after reading we can

Alcoholic beverages are not allowed to be brought on board by the vast majority of cruise lines. You must purchase alcoholic drinks on board.

I advise reading the following url to make sure you know the policy of the cruise line you're sailing.

It's understandable as to how and why alcohol is not allowed to be taken on board. Often times people have bought the cruise at incredible last minute savings. And, in order to recoup some profit they charge for the drinks. Alcoholic drinks have a large mark-up and profit margin throughout the service and restaraunt industry; on land as well as on shore.

Enjoy your cruise and happy sailings to you
