The previous answer is wrong...Each guest over 18yrs. is allowed to take on board 1litre of alcohol each on embarkation only. Alcohol bought in ports will be kept until disembarkation.

No, the rules for taking alcohol on board are clearly spelt out on the P&O website.

One bottle each is OK. If you don't want the hassle of carrying the extra 2Kg per bottle you can buy a bottle of spirits from your cabin steward for about £22 per litre bottle. Or if you are flying to join Britannia you can buy a bottle in duty free or on the plane for about £12 a bottle. By the way, it's the price of the tonic water that's the expense on a ship. If weight is a problem I suggest you take your own of bottles of tonic (plastic bottles are lighter).

I have to confess that I am always amazed that folk are apparently quite happy to pay hundreds if not thousands of pounds for a cruise and then go to a lot of trouble to save a few quid by buying and packing some drinks. It's quite simply not worth the trouble.

Nothing wrong with packing a bottle of your favourite tipple to take with you! What if the ship doesnt stock it?

I agree with you but if P and O don't have your favourite tipple on board then it makes sense to take it with you . . . . or go without!
