Hi, Came off Sea Princess yesterday and if you declare booz they will store it for you, I just put mine through the scanner and picked it up at the other end, then off to my cabin with it. Same on Marco Polo a few months ago, the Americans were declaring it at a seperate desk, I just put mine through the scanner and away. Is it legal to take personal things off you? I'm not sure. Robert.

We were on the Sea Princess in the Caribbean at Easter and took a box of wine and bottle of spirits in each case with no problem. On returning from shore visits they were taking obvious drinks packages that people were carrying (to return at the end of the cruise) but we bought duty free on a couple of occasions and got them on board inside the rucksack we carried - even though it must have been obvious on the X ray. We've found this to be so on several Princess ships. Mal, Wiga.

I suggest you take a BOX of wine on board with you. You can carry this in your hand luggage with you, and you will not have a problem getting it on board. Best wishes C.T.

My wife travelled with Princess 2 years ago. I am afraid they appeared to have a fairly tight policy on taking alcohol on board. If detected any unauthorised bottles were removed and returned at the end of the cruise. Taking your own alcohol on board, if it was uncontrolled on a ship with 2000 guests, would undoubtedly result in a major reduction in the profits.

Hello there, We have cruised with P&O, on Oceana and, last year, Aurora, to the Caribbean. My wife and I both like a glass of wine and of course, purchase this in the restaurant in the evening - but if you want a glass in the day, throughout a 22 night cruise, it will get very expensive. We boarded in Southampton with 6/7 boxes of wine in our luggage together with champagne etc - there has never been a problem and we always had our wine in the room fridge - the steward always made sure we had ice as well, etc. I agree with all that you say and from experience we can say that we have never found a problem. Pack it in your luggage and say nothing - it's not their business what you yake on board as long as there is no security issue.

Peace of Mind

By Alana Mills

With Hurricane Matthew having torn its way across the Caribbean and the Florida coast and and Typhoon Haima raging in the Far East, many Cruise ships had to seek shelter in port or re-route to avoid it as well as hotels having to batten down the hatches causing holiday misery for many.It begs the question of how safe is your holiday?Over my 30 years in travel I have seen many disasters that have affected the travel plans of hundreds of people, like 9-11, The Icelandic Volcano, many weather ev...

Bliss in Alaska and Joy for China

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

Being a great fan of NCL cruise lines I have welcomed the news that the 2 newest ships to join the fleet in 2017 and 2018 will be based in China and Alaska respectively. Norwegian Joy which will enter service in Summer 2017 will be based in Shanghai and Tianjin. I have recently returned from a cruise on Norwegian Epic around the Mediterranean and there were a lot of Chinese staff on board who were training and getting ready for the new ship.Norwegian Joy is being styled exclusively for the Ch...

WIFI seems to be one of the most important factors now days when people are considering booking a cruise. We used to offer free car parking or on board credit as extra incentives for booking but now we are finding that people would rather have free internet.Cruise lines are also starting to offer this as an alternative to their booking campaigns and whilst it will never take over from the free drinks packages I think it is becoming a close second.When I go on holiday I cant think of anything ...
