I remember when they had the skeet shooting, and when they use to have confetti and play anchors aweigh when setting sail!
Dang, I am getting old
Have posted this several times, but here goes. I don't see anything wrong with taking some drinks aboard from a moral standpoint. I also don't think most people who do this need to go to Betty Ford or AA. Some people are just trying to save a few bucks, or have certain drinks they enjoy.
It is pretty funny reading all the ways people "sneak" alcohol on board, with the listerine and water bottles. It really is not that complicated to bring a bottle of vodka or 12 pack of beer on board.
And the more I think of it, It is a pretty scary thought.
1500.. that exactly what mt S&S tab was on my first cruise... but.. that was everything.. not just booze. last cruise it was 450. but.. i took 2 bottles of rum in my suitcase. bought a soda card, and had rum and coke all day. filled a waterbottle with the rum and it sat in plain view on the table. nobody asked any questions... personally i think bringing something is a good idea.

When you put a bottle of vodka in your suitcase do they not see it? Isn't that why people sneak it on in Listerine bottles and water bottles? Aren't we still allowed to bring a 6 pack of Beer on the ship or is that not allowed anymore? Hmm maybe I should buy a bottle of vodka or bottle of Kaluha (My FAV) and just put it in my luggage. Really it isn't much to lose if they find it, I just don't have time or patience to wash out a listerine bottle, remember to throw a few drops of food colouring into my vodka and Drink funky coloured drinks. Can you imagine making yourself a nice white russian and using BLue Vodka? Its almost like what EVER BAR up here does on St Pattys Day, colour the kegs of beer green. My god thats a load of colouring! hehehe
I know what you mean. I know a guy who keeps his large prescription liquid cough medicine bottles and he takes in bottles of his favorite liquor. This guy is totally loaded, and they even take several cruises a year. They are retired, and they literally are on the VIP list of several cruise lines. Now why do you suppose he does it.... Oh well. Maybe thats how he can afford to take so many cruises...
Dave, that is so funny, you were posting that while I was typing and trying to remember it from my bar-tending days.
I am glad I remembered it right
It is nothing that I would drink, but have served quite a few of them. You have to wash the shakers really well after because of the milk.
Here is a short funny story, In S.C. up untill this year we were required to use mini bottles which are 1.7 oz. And to make a White Russian you have to put 2 bottles in it. The bride at this wedding reception drank 2 of them, the groom had to lead her out..she kept telling him she only had 2 drinks. She actually had nearly 7 in reality. Maybe not funny, but I thought it was sorta funny
