NCL advised me I can bring wine on board as long as I pay a $15 "corking fee". Is this just a term or do they open the bottle to ensure it is only wine ? Going on my 1st cruise in Sept. and I seem to have alot of questions.

They will open it when you are ready to drink it if you take it to the dining rooms.
I think they also charge this fee if you just want to have it in your cabin.

I had planned on having it for in the room (I don't mind purchasing it at dinner), but I did'nt know if they would open it when we were getting on to check it. Thanks for the info

I would assume they will realize there is nothing else in it as long as the cork has never been removed.
I'm sure they would realize that there is nothing else in the bottle if the cork has never been removed. If they uncorked it at embarkation, you would have a lot of ruined bottles of wine.

I have never been quite right since the original question on jeans. Dr. says after a few more weeks of therapy they will consider lowering my riddlin and vallium dosage, and soon, I may even be able to drive again!

Oh, by the way, on the corkage fee question; they charge you to pull the cork out at the dinner table, or at the bar. Take a corkscrew (in your checked luggage) and use it to open your bottle of wine in the room.

Talking about corks, I opened a $40 bottle of Bordeaux blend recently (okay, yesterday), that had two corks in the bottle. Through skill only exhibited by a surgeon was I able to extract BOTH corks from the bottle. Dang, I'm good!

I think with NCL they charge you either way whether you have it in your room & open it yourself or take it to the dining room.
