I am going on my first cruise (Spirit-Nov)with my husband and 4 kids (8 and under). I am afraid they may get a cold or something and I don't want to have to buy anything onboard... so I want to take a basic kit with me (kid's tylenol, robitussin, Peptobismo, etc). Also my husband needs to keep his Epipen and benadryl for allergic reactions nearby. So what are the restrictions for bringing any of this when we board?

As long as you have a scrip you can bring what you need onboard.
I bring V and C (depending on the length of the cruise)they pulled it out once and saw my name on the scrip and I had no problem,

Hello Natcat, welcome to Cruise-Chat. You won't have any problems bringing what you listed on board any ship. My wife,because of her back surgery, has a lot of prescriptions for pain that she has to take everyday. We never where asked any questions about them. She carries them in her carry-on.

Hi Natcat, and Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

Have not had any problems taking medicine on board either. Usually in my carry on.

Sorry Michael, that edit was a mistake.
Is V and C ****** and ****** or Vitamins and Cold Medicine?

Just wondering the same thing! Is it okay to put our prescription medicines in our daily dose trays and just have a medicine listing from our pharmacy, or do I need to take the actual bottles along? We are on the Victory on 11-11-07

The V is for quick ones and the C is for marathons longer than 3 days.
example #1 Down a Betty and a wilma Im good for a three day cruise. ( Vitamins )
Example #2 when I want to go all night (sleep) it's a half a bottle of Loveitall (cold Meds)

Just a listing.... I peel the lable with my name and all that right off the bottle and stick it to a piece of paper and keep it in my wallet at all times just so I have the proof as well as allways have my scrip # with me with the doc's name in case of emergencies

We've never had any problems with meds...
If it's some type of narcotic, I would make sure to have the bottle with the script and you name on it...

Happy Cruising...
