Carnival's paperwork indicates you can bring one bottle of wine on board per person. Will be sailing on the Valor 9/16 and wonder if this has changed. Don't want to have to throw this away.

Hi Bunni, and Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

The policy is still the same as it states in the paperwork and on the website. Take and enjoy!

I have some very special wine I am taking this time too.

Welcome Aboard !

Last august on our first cruise we brought a bottle of jack daniels with us and no one, including the cabin stewart had a problem with it. I think they just say don't bring alcohol on board so you spend much more on the ship. We usually had a couple of drinks before dinner and always had wine service during dinner.

We will be celebrating our 20th anniversary (Woot!) and hope to bring a couple of bottles of champagne. Also, the cruise agent has promised us a bottle because we got so many friends and family members to book the same cruise.

What is the best way to bring wine on-board?
Some say in checked luggage, someone else mentioned that checked luggage might get tossed around some which could break the bottles. Love wine but I don't particularly want to wear it.

Experienced wine toting cruisers what is the best way to pack wine? I don't mind taking up some space because when the wine is gone I plan to replace it with suvies. haha should I pack extra bottles (maybe a couple of screw top Australian wines) in my children's luggage?

Thanks

I plan to use a wheeled carry on - much safer than packing glass bottles.

We are taking two bottles. One each as per the policy. I am thinking we will carry them on. They are very special wines given to me from a very generous person. I don't want them banged up going through the checked luggage.

Just got back from my cruise two days ago - we had a group of 8, and we all brought at least one bottle on wine with us (including some LARGE bottles). Personally, I vaccumed sealed my bottle in a bag, and carried it on. We also brought some vodka in water bottles with no problem.
