i have been checking out the threads re alcohol smuggling on another forum. everyone is saying easy to take bottles on board in checked luggage - not carry ons. (this is not referring to buying in port city and bringing on board; this is bringing on during embarkation. however, there is discussion of new policies and waiting to hear from those sailing on 7/28. anyone have more info?
I know my wife and I snuck some on in our luggage when we took a 3 day out of San Pedro to Catalina and Ensenada on Carnival. We didnt have a problem. But I am not sure about Royal Caribbean or any new policies they have. Hope my wife and I arent the only alcoholics here that try to bring their own alcohol...lol
Yeah exactly barbara, my boss says his alcohol tab usually runs about $400 while on the ship...I dont plan on spending any money on alcohol while on board...When we hit the ports we will most likely buy alcohol, but the other two cabins we have friends in are each going to bring a different alcholic beverage. We plan on drinking in a different cabin each night to spread the wealth of alcohol...And no we are not alcoholics......just drunks...
I just wrote this in another thread, but : Filling the PLASTIC mouthwash bottles with rum and vodka seperatley , adding in half a tea spoon of green and blue food coloring, made the stuff look exactly like scope ! Put it in your checked luggage and it's at your door a few hours later ! Imagine how much cash that saved us just adding a shot to our sodas each time.
I've only done it one, last month, but it worked.
