The Celebration out of Jacksonville? Humm....if it was in 2004, I plead the fifth.

I read the same thing about not being allowed to bring non-alcoholic beverages - but I asked the lady at Carnival who booked our cruise, and she said it would be fine! Also, the fine print at the end of our ticket booklet says it's ok - here's the actual wording:

Guests may bring a small quantity of non-alcoholic beverages at the beginning of the cruise during embarkation day only. Excessive quantities, as determined by Carnival, will be confiscated and discarded without compensation.

So I guess we don't know the definition of "excessive quantities" until we get there!

Also, TNcruiseman, you have brought crown? In your carry-on or regular luggage? I'm hoping to bring a bottle of Malibu...should I try it?

Looks like Carnival changed their policy yet AGAIN.

Now it says that "excessive" non alcoholic beverages will be taken.....

I wish they would make up their mind.

I sometimes get the impression that things posted on the various cruise line websites are not carefully reviewed by management prior to being uploaded. It could the case in this instance. Or it could be that Carnival bowed to pressure from annoyed past passengers such as us!

I would like to think that Carnival used this free "research" by their loyal customers and changed their minds because of it.

The wording has actually changed on the www.carnival.com website FAQ during this debate.
First the wording said None. Now it says just the opposite. The Carnival website is the only one I have been following.

more so the latter- If they felt as though they could get away with it without any repercussions, they would.

I guess they did change their mind, or as Dave said was an error or they caved. I would have just taken my decaff tea bags with me.

I actually remember the days they would let you bring a six pack of beer on on St.Thomas. Just saying how times have changed at the thought of smuggling a 6 pack of pop
