Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Stonebank (10 Dec 08 12:12)

Just to add a point, the other day we discussed quite deeply the security systems in place on most ships now and all luggage being taken on the ship is scanned for obvious reasons. items like too much alcohol, kettles and irons are immediately recognised and you may well be asked to visit the little office downstairs if they don't like what they see. The choice is yours but to avoid breakage I carry my wine in the hand luggage. .......Neil.

You are allowed a couple of bottles of wine on initial boarding. How you carry them is entirely up to you, be it main luggage, hand luggage or Tesco's carrier bag. Be aware that any further 'carry ons' at ports of call, will be taken from you until the last night of cruise.......Wilba.

It states in the brochure you cannot take your own alcohol onto the ship, every time you embark your "shopping" is scanned so there's little chance of taking any to your cabin. If you buy any onboard you do not actually get it until your last night. Not all cruse company's scan your possessions on re-embarking.

I just come back from Celebrity Constallation. I would suggest that you take a couple of bottles of champagne. A bottle of Verve that would cost you £30 max in Britain is over $109 plus 15% service charge .

Thanks for this yes thought i would take exactly that. have now had my confirmation from Celebrity and apparently you can take a bottle of wine/champagne each for use in your cabin but no spirts.

No you cannot take anything onboard, Your bags will be scanned everytime you board the ship and any booze will be taken away and returned to you on the last night of the cruise, thus ensuring you will pay the costly prices of the ship.
