No, any alcohol bought would go into the hold until 2nd / final night before you leave the ship. You could enquire about buying a bottle of wine from the shop to drink in you cabin.

Choose P & O next time, they don't mind you taking alcohol on board for consumption in your cabin.

We cruised with NCL (never again)and emailed ahead to ask if a bottle of spirits could be left in our cabin.After a lot of messing about they put us on to the Head waiter who did arrange this for us,we had to pay up front and it was expensive. We also managed to "smuggle" a bottle on board. It's the rip off prices for bottled water that gets me!

Heading to the Caribbean?

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

With major hurricanes bartering through the United Stated and the Caribbean over the last couple of months I have received a huge amount of calls from obviously concerned passengers as to whether their cruise will still be happening, and if so will the itinerary still be the same.Having worked in the Caribbean for a couple of years with Thomson I have been in the middle of a couple of Hurricanes and dealt with the aftermath too from evacuating Islands, to holding the fort in hurricane shelter...
