We had our wines and spirits taken off us when we got back on board from shore and it was returned to our cabin on the day before returning home on our recenct Fred Olsen Cruise but I did take some wine from home (cheeky) in my hand luggage to consume in the cabin. Hope this helps.
Mmmm... thanks. The Princess literature says you may bring wine onboard for 'special occasions' so may just 'chance it' and see.
We have just come back from our cruise on Sea Princess and we didn't have any problems. We took wine in our cases on to the ship and we bought wine when we went ashore and it went through the scanner . At no time was it taken off us.
We always cruise with Princess and have always taken wine on board with no problem at all.
Interesting - may just give it a go next year. Although I don't really want to be stuck in the cabin/balcony drinking on our own either!
