The company ban any alcohol being taken on board. If it is found it will be held until you disembark.

You are not permitted to take alcohol on board Black Prince, however, you CAN order Bottles and mixers from Housekeeping. Orders placed before noon will be delivered the same day so the only time your cabin needs to be 'bottle' free is the first night! (You don't board before noon!)Bottles are 1 litre and for average brands cost £13-£15 Mixers are sold in 6 packs of 150ml and are £4.10 per pack. Beers are £2.20-£2.50 for a 330ml can. You can also order cigarettes at £31 for 200. Equally, you can buy packets of cigarettes in the bars. Hope this help.

Would you happen to know if the same applies to the Black Watch?

I believe this is the situation on all Olsen ships but it is probably best if you check with them. I have been on both Black Prince and Boudicca and they are exactly the same so I rather think it will apply throughout the fleet. You do not actually see either alcohol or tobacco in the ships shop. They are ordered through room service AND cigarettes are sold in all bars (I think I am correct in saying this - again, best to check with the cruise line) The price of a litre of spirits is approximately £15 and a carton of cigarettes £31 (prices correct at April 2008) There are some brands a little cheaper at £13 and of course premium brands dearer. You will find the Shopping Form in your cabin folder when you board. Have a great cruise!
