They let you bring Wine on board and will charge you a "corkage fee" to use it in the dinning room.. They should let you bring your gin on board and charge a similar fee in my book. There is either some legal reason they don't or they just have not considered this avenue. Maybe they figure that there are not enough people willing to pay extra to be able to make their own cocktails in there cabins?
Of course, I'm not normally in the cabin long enough to worry about not having a drink. And there is certainly no shortages of opportunities to find a drink outside of your cabin... But I understand the desire.
