Yes you can as long as you are not taking it onboard by the crate load or your not underage. Never had a problem with P&O.

Ask your cabin steward to provide ice and lemon every nigt in your cabin drinks on board are very resonable.

Probably not much help but Princess allow two bottles of wine per person per stop. They don't advertise this very much ( understandably ) and we only discovered it when a fellow passenger carried a box of wine on board at Cannes. This is for consumption in Cabins only. If P&O don't, try making a fuss, in the financial climate they are unlikely to want to upset future cruisers.

A lovely rum to purchase is Appletons Rum, we bought this on a previous holiday in the Caribbean. We have just returned from a two week Mediterrean cruise on board Ventura,we bought bacardi and had no problem taking it back on the ship for consumption in the cabin.Have a fabulous holiday. Corinne.

Oh yes had appletons on many occasions when visiting jamaica. Other side of caribean on the next occasion. Fingers crossed for a good cruise aboard the Ventura. The reviews are very mixed. How did you find it Corinne? Also m,ay i ask which airline you flew with. Curious -as the flight is long and we want to be comfertable, although we have booked premium seats, still want peace of mind. thanx x.

No problem with P&O,some ports in the carribean ask you to order it before a certain time of the day and its delivered to the ship but you can certainly have it to drink in your cabin not like some of the american ships where they do not allow your own alcohol and charge extortionate prices for drinks stick with P&O for a great cruise we are off to the panama in novso have a great time.

By Alana Mills

Did you know that 10 Years ago around 60,000 British Holidays makers took a Nile cruise compared to approximately 4000 in 2016. That is a staggering decline in anyones books and despite the troubles in Egypt a decline that no-one could have possibly anticipated.No one can deny that Egypt has had its troubles with the Egyptian revolution in 2011 leading to a coup and the leadership changing hands twice before the 2014 Leader General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi took power. There have been a number o...

But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
