They do state in their cabin info that they will take bottles off you and keep them till the last day of your trip but other than entering the port at palma on day one our bags were never searched.

We did a three week cruise on this ship and we never had our bags checked. if you buy spirits in the onboard shop they keep them till your last day on board.

There is a big shopping center and hyper market about 400mtrs on your left at the port of Palma you can carry as much wine spirits juice as you like back on board to have in your cabin (no checks.

We have been on the Island Escape Nov 07 and never had our bags searched. Most cruise lines will keep any bottles till the end of your trip if they find it.

When we went with Island Cruises we often brought a couple of bottles of wine at the duty free shops and took them on board - didn't know you weren't allowed! On the last day we had a long wait on board and made several excursions to the duty free shop as we didn't have any British money to buy drinks on board and the staff even supplied us with ice buckets to keep the drinks cold.

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...
