We like to have a bottle of wine in our cabin but can't really afford the NCL price. Any ideas how to bring some on board?

Call your cruise director and set it up so you can bring some aboard. 15 dollar corking fee.

Gisele:

Consider visiting your local liquor store where they will have a selection of high quality "box wines" A higher quality box wine will be about $15.00 to $20.00 for a 3 liter box. The box is sealed, won't break, not that heavy and three liters should last the whole week. It's very easy to pack in your larger suitcase. This method has always worked for us, and we get to take what we want, and what brand we enjoy. The cabin stewart will keep you supplied with ice, and depending on the ship that you are on, will most likely have a refrigerator to store the box.

Do they find the box wines and charge you a corking fee, or can you sneak them in your suitcase and hope they will just not notice? I'd be happy to bring something like that, just curious what the procedure for a box wine will be.

If you are so cheap that you cannot buy the booze you need onboard I suggest you stay at home

Svein, I must say that I'm always impressed by your charitable nature and abundant kind words.

There are some people in this world who scrape and save to go on a cruise. If those individuals don't want to spent $40 for a bottle of wine that retails for $6.99 on shore - then so be it!!

Well, if you look very closely you might see the Yellow thing at the end, called a smiley. This to indicate that behind my scary remarks I have deep down some sense of humor.

To Gisele and the others on this thread:

I don't know what NCL's policy is, but on most of the Carnival-owned lines (HAL, for one) and on Celebrity - they usually allow you to bring wine onboard in an "open" fashion. If you drink it in your room, there is no corkage fee. If you bring it to the dining room, then they charge the corkage fee.

Do check with NCL, though, to find out the particulars for that line.

...and enjoy. I'm all for giving the cruise lines their "due" in many fashions - but personally, I prefer to shower my generosity on tips for the staff rather than for ridiculously overpriced wine.
