Hi NJRonbo, welcome to Cruise-Chat. As Dave stated, we don't endorse "smuggling" alcohol on board. Princess is very stringent about their policies. We've seen many bottles confiscated in the past few years. They do allow wine and champagne. They do scan luggage before taking it on board as well as carry-ons. Embarkation is similar to airport security now. They also have dogs in certain ports. They do offer in-room packages for purchase. Here
is a link to their website for packages. Hope you have a fantastic cruise, and once again, welcome on board!
