I noticed that HAL says you can bring on wine or champagne and it appears there is no limit (whereas some other cruise lines limit you to 2). I just wanted to check on this - has anyone tried to bring on say, a whole case? (...if I am going with a group on a longer cruise...) Do they allow this?
I also see HAL has reduced price liquor packages for cabin consumption. All in all they have a nice reasonable policy. It is no doubt based on the demographic for their clientele, which is largely different from RCI or Carnival.
Celebrity does attract more younger people than HAL. But I suspect the Celebrity policy is based on their being owned by Royal Caribbean - both the same. Carnival seems to be maintaining the hands-off promises they made (at least most of them) as they acquired other lines, leaving each line to determine policy.
