From their website "Alcohol (duty-free or otherwise) is available for purchase and will be delivered to your stateroom on the last day of your voyage. Alcohol purchased at any port of call including the port of embarkation may not be consumed on board. It will be collected at the gangway for safekeeping and delivered to your stateroom on the last day of your voyage, prior to disembarkation. You may bring one bottle per person of wine or champagne on board to celebrate sepcial occasions. If consumed in the dining rooms or alternative restaurants, each bottle will be subject to a USD15 corkage fee.".

When not travelling Queens Grill I bring 2x Champagne and one Gin (bathtime drink) and have never had anything confiscated for safe keeping. I assume you mean drinks glasses as opposed to cups. Yes, they have them in the staterooms. Youre going to have a lovely time. Richard.

I've only been on the QE2 and personally brought alcohol on board (even though the Cunard guidelines state that you should only bring 1 bottle of wine or champagne on board) both in my luggage and from various ports as gifts and at no time was it confiscated. The cost of alcohol in bars/restaurants was fairly high. I'm sure you'll enjoy your cruise.

Both my sister and myself took took a bottle of spirits on board Queen Mary 2 last january which was bought in duty free at Gatwick, it was in a duty free bag when we boarded and no-one took the slightest bit of notice. We also bought more bottles of spirit in Barbados and took them back on board. The spirits that we bought whilst we where on board from the QM2 duty free shop were delivered to our room on the last night of our cruise. So needless to say we were very glad that we had taken our own. Have a fantastic time we're just booking up to do it all again.

What Jane failed to show/mention

By Kerry James

I have been watching this series of Cruising with Jane McDonald (Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 5), and thought that when she was on MSC and Viking she did show more of the ship to the watcher/cruiser which I did think was lacking in the first series.I was surprised MSC had them back on as in the first series she didnt really show of the MSC Divina but was pleased to see that she was showing the newest ship in the fleet – MSC Meraviglia (at the moment until the MSC Seaside and MSC Seav...

Ciao I am Sailing

Frankie Bond's blog

As you read this I will have started my own holiday – and yes you have guessed it I am off on a cruise…Firstly I will be spending 3 nights in the Mestre area of Venice to explore this beautiful city which I must admit to having never been to before (other than landing at the airport for a transfer to Trieste in April) I am looking forward to strolling around the beautiful streets, stopping for an ice-cream or a coffee in a lovely square and also to exploring the waterways of Veni...

Ryanair are a joke!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

Well you have read the news. Ryanair are planning to cancel 40-50 flights a day…..yes A DAY because they have messed up their pilots holiday rota’s!!! I thought Michael O’Leary’s hair brained idea of ‘low cost standing room only on his flights’ was nonsense but I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this news. Firstly are all their pilots taking holiday in Sept-Oct ? Is there a cheap deal we don’t know about and all the staff at Ryanair are...
