You ARE allowed to take on 2 bottles of wine per stateroom at the start of the cruise.
Is there a restriction on size? can you take on Litre bottles as against 75cl.
You can take 2 bottles of wine on board at the start of the cruise Apart from that you can't take your own or buy any for room 'consumption' unless using the mini bar in the cabin. Any alcohol bought onboard gets delivered to your room on the last night. Your bags go through a security scanner for security at each port of call and I saw alcohol being taken for 'storage' until the end of the cruise. Hope this helps.
Many thanks Graham. We have cruised before where alcohol is sold for in-cabin consumption either as a drinks pack or a bucket of 6 bottled beers I think it was Royal Caribbean who did this.
RCI do not do a in room drinks package, NCL do and Celebrity do also. Liquor Package :
Perfect for entertaining or enjoying with your significant other, two different liquor packages each includes one bottle of liquor, six cans of soda and Natural Source Nuts Ivory Grab Box. Packages are for consumption in staterooms only. We offer scotch, gin, bourbon, rum, vodka, in three categories.
It costs $80 and $100 for the premium package.
Many thanks for info. It may have been Princess Cruises not RCI, I know that at least one of the cruise lines we have travelled with did anj in-cabin drinks package.
We travelled 2007 on Navigator of the Seas and we purchased an on board drink package before travel it was for 12 bottles and could be used in either the bar, dining room or taken to your cabin. Wine & Dine Diamond - 12 Bottles 186.20 GBP
Item# 2284 - A 15% gratuity is included in the package price listed above.
The Diamond Package, our most prestigious selection, has the largest variety to choose from and includes exclusive wines not available in the other packages. You can also select any of the wines available in the Platinum and Gold Packages. (both are cheaper)
How To Purchase
To purchase a drink package, visit any one of the onboard bars and lounges and the package will be charged to your SeaPass® account. After you've purchased a drink package, a sticker will be placed on your SeaPass Card to show which package you've selected. Then all you have to do is show your SeaPass Card as you normally would when ordering a drink.
Where You'll Find It
Drink packages are offered on every ship in our fleet.
Is it true that you have to pay corkage, my sister phoned celebrity and was told that yes you can take the two bottles on board but you will have to pay a corkage charge.
As I understand it you only have to pay corkage if you take the bottles into the dining room or a public room on the ship, but not if you consume in your cabin. If anyone else can clarify this I would be grateful.
Thank you for the info.
