Actually that reminds me of a funny story... We were standing in line waiting for them to begin boarding the Conquest. There was a guy a couple of spaces in front of us in line that had one of those wheeled coolers. Half filled with beer, the other half soda/water. In typical Texan style, when I informed him that they wouldn't let him bring the beer onboard, turned it into an opportunity to "tailgate" before the cruise. He handed out beer to anyone that wanted one. So we are all standing there having pre cruise warm up drinks! Can't let good beer go to waste!
