Silver Shadow

OVERVIEW: This ship is best suited to discerning, well-traveled couples, typically over 50, who seek a small ship with excellent food that approaches gourmet standards, and fine service in surroundings bordering on the elegant and luxurious.

Sea Princess

OVERVIEW: Sea Princessspends most of its time cruising in Australasian and South Pacific waters. As is the case aboard most large ships, you will be well attended if you live in the top-grade cabins; otherwise, you’ll be one of a very large number of passengers.

you have alcohol taken from you when boarding the ship and returned to you on the morning of your departure, even bottles in your suitcase are shown up onthe x-ray machine and you will be asked to go to a certain part of the ship to open your case and hand over the bottle/s until the end of your cruise

Take aboard guns, drugs, explosives, child pornography, illegal immigrants. The crew will give you less grief than if you take alcohol aboard ;-)

NCL allow you to take wine on board - any size of bottle - no boxes - and charge $15 dollars per bottle. No spirits are allowed.

In a word - No. The faq's on their website states - "Sorry, but we do not allow guests to bring their own alcohol to drink on board. If you purchase alcohol ashore to take home with you, this should be given to the ship’s crew when you get back on board and it will be returned to you at the end of the cruise".

When we were boarding the Jade and at various ports we saw alcohol being taken off people as they searched any bags you were carrying. The only way to bring it onboard, a couple told us, is have it in your suitcase when you are boarding.

Buy a Box of wine, remove the plastic wine bag from inside the cardboard box and lay in the middle of your suitcase and for your morning coffee, take along a cup immersion heater and a jar of coffee, grab milk/sugar from buffet bar
