We've also been through the liquor test on several ships this year. CELEBRITY Constellation 14 day transatlantic allowed us to buy it in the gift shop IF we brought our blue Celebrity bag from our cabin with us to carry it back in. They treated the purchase like it was a big secret and said policy was that you were not to bring liquor, purchased off the ship, into your cabin. Nor did they endorse selling it duty free and letting you drink it on board. You had to ask to get the special treatment. PRINCESS Star, after much research on board, allowed us to buy a bottle of Vodka from one of the bars in the main lobby area. Slightly more than duty free prices. But not from the gift shop. And they said they would confiscate liquor brought on board, returning it at the end of the cruise. HAL let's you bring your liquor of choice with you. They suggest bringing the bottles in your carryone. Seems that the policy's vary per ship per sailing and asking your cabin steward, the attendant at gift shop or duty free stores, and at the pursors offices helped us find out the true scoop on the liquor!

Let's see,

First, they started charging extra for ice cream, then they started charging extra for 'premium' dining, now they are confiscating your huge supply of carry-on alcohol.

Thank heavens that they are also raising the prices for the cruises.

leT ME TELL YOU

After doing extensive research on booze on cruise. Let me tell you!!
First off...For those who want to pay LOTSA money for booze on your cruise...YOU SHOULDN'T be reading this BOARD!
2nd. I am referancing to Princess Cruise Lines.
You can bring all the wine and CHAMPAGNE you want, if you drink in your room (no charge) if you drink during dinner $10 corkage fee.
You CAN NOT bring any other booze besides wine and champagne. HOWEVER you should consider buying those pre-cruise gifts in the room. The prices are almost the SAME as you would in a liquor store, and gratuity is included and it LEGAL.
ADVICE: LOOK AT THE BON VOYAGE GIFT BASKETS (BOMBAY SAPPHIRE IS ONLY $27)

As for bringing you own WINE, YES you should. The wines they offer on Princess, for 25-30, actually cost 7-8 on land. THOSE "cheap" wines give you a headache. Not saying they are cheap in price, but cheap in quality. You can buy a $15 wine, pay $10 corkage, pay the same price but have AWESOME wine!!

Love this board!!
