How much is a cocktail on a NCL cruise. How much is a G&T.

Not if you cruise with Olsens, they only allow you booze you've bought on board and all baggage is xrayed on boarding. P & O are more relaxed about it.

Most cruise lines state you are not allowed to bring drink - we ALWAYS do - at least 4 bootles - 2 of which are champagne ! We put them in the middle of our suitcase - have you seen the thousands of cases going on board !! Never been a problem - they even gave me the ice and champagne glasses in my cabin to drink them.

NCL will tell you in their brochure, No! But who is to know? As far as I know, luggage is not screened prior to being put on a ship. We have had wine 'illegally' in a ship's cabin fridge many times & the only person who knows about it iss the cabin steward & he won't blow the gaff. By the way, Princess will allow wine to be brought on board for 'special occasions'.

E went on NCL Sun earlier this year. They are very srict about bring drink on board. We took wine boxes & champagne through fine. The boxes were in hand luggage but did not show up on xray machine. Champagne was OK too, but friend with drink in hand luggage was confiscated. They had it delivered back on last night - & we drank it then!

No, NCL will not allow you to take any alcohol aboard, even in your suitcase. I cruised from Dover to Barcelona on the Norwegian Dream ((Sept. 27 - October 9) and a number of passengers had their baggage held on boarding and were advised to report to where the luggage was. On arrival, they were made to open their cases and hand over the "illicit" (their word) bottles. One man in particular was incensed because he was humiliated in this way...and all over a bottle of wine. Petty!!!!!

I have never sailed on the Norweigan Gem but have sailed regularly on Orient Lines Marco Polo which is owned by NCL and have often taken wine with me and also bought it ashore at ports of call and have had no difficulty in taking it aboard to have a pre dinner drink in my cabin. What is not allowed was to consume it in the Dining Room or bars unless you pay 'corkage'. Hope this helps.

Depends on your cruiseline ...... Cunard had no objection to case of wine being delivered to our cabin in Cape Town, but others search the hand baggage. If you can wrap it safely in your main luggage you should be OK.

If you tend to drink a reasonable amount of wine, try packing 'wine-boxes' in your luggage - have done it several times and have found no probs.

Past Passenger Discounts for N...

The world of cruising has always offered past passenger dicsounts in order to promote loyalty but in recent years many cruise lines have scaled down their generosity. P&O, Cunard and Fred Olsen all offer less discounts now than then used to.MSC on the other hand, despite being one of Europe’s largest cruise lines are keen to increase their British customer base and are extending their loyalty scheme to non past passengers too.MSC have always had one of the best past passenger scheme...

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
