Last Christmas, when we were on the Sea Princess, we asked the Officer at the bottom of the gangway in Jamaica, if we could take an exotic flower arrangement on board and he said yes and also we could take on alcohol if we wanted. Hope this helps.
The answer is YES- If you pack it in your luggage beforehand it will appear in your cabin for you to enjoy in your cabin-but if you buy it at any ports of call you may find that security staff take it from you to be collected at the end of your voyage.
Prncess's alcohol policy is "Alcohol purchased at any port of call, including the port of embarkation, may not be consumed onboard. It will be collected at the gangway for safekeeping and delivered to your stateroom on the last day of your cruise, prior to your disembarkation. You may bring wine or champagne onboard to celebrate special occasions. If consumed in the dining rooms or alternative restaurants, each bottle will be subject to a $10 corkage fee.".
I always cruise with Princess and have never had any alcohol taken off of me when boarding at ports of call, have always taken wine and beer on board and have bben behind people who have bought on board spirits.
Just returned from Caribbean on Sea Princess. We did buy alcohol & made it thru the check point, but some did not. So its pure luck if you do, & unlucky if you dont. Cheap drink in St Martin !!!!!!! Very cheap Cigs too.
