No, it's really about money: 1) If you BYOB they lose money. 2) If you or someone gets blitzed on their own booze and falls off the ship - they (might) get sued. 3) If an underager gets blitzed on contraband booze, see (2) above. 4) see (1) above. Get my point? Why else would they include: "All liquor, excessive quantities of wine and nonalcoholic beverages" in their policy.

Okay. I may be very wrong. I just figured, possibly incorrectly, that the less money some folks had to pay out for liquor, the more they would be inclined to drink.
