I know for a fact that some people do. I was on the Mariner a few weeks ago, and there was a guy at our table that said he put a bottle of rum in his luggage, and enjoys his rum and coke sitting on his balcony. I, myself, wouldn't try it since they became more strict about alcohol.

It's against Royal Caribbean's policy, but plenty of people do it. Form what I hear, the rate of success is much higher than the rate of failure. They do random searches of luggage, and if they find alcohol they'll confiscate it and return it to you at the end of the cruise (if it hasn't been opened). I've heard that they recently revised the policy to reserve the right to deny embarkation if liquor is found in your luggage... but there have been no reports of this actually happening (what a PR nightmare that would be).

If you want to give it a shot, I say go for it. The worst that can happen is that you'll open your luggage in your stateroom and the bottle will be gone. No one I know who does this has ever had a problem.

whoops, serves me right for trying to correct a typo. Why won't the eraser let me delete the double posts? Didn't mean to litter up the board... sorry.

I deleted them.

There is a time limit for edited or deleting posts. Once that time expires, you can't do either. I think it is set at 30 minutes.
