Is anyone on this board an avid wine drinker? We like our wine in our cabin, does the ship let you take a case with you when boarding? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sorry to break the news, but they will take the wine from you when you board. They return it to you the last night of the cruise. They might let you have it if you pay a uncorking fee. Pennie

Will they allow wine if we ARE willing to pay corkage? Many restaurants do.
We plan to buy our wine in the dining room, but would enjoy a bottle of champagne, or a bottle of wine in our cabin / on the deck at sailing.

Did a little reseaech on RCCL's web site. Here is a copy of their policy.

Can I bring my own liquor onboard at embarkation?


Guests who purchase liquor onboard a Royal Caribbean International
vessel from one of our gifts shops, for in-cabin consumption, will be
sold the liquor at an in-cabin consumption rate (non-duty free rate
which is comparable to retail rates), which in turn can be taken
immediately to their cabin.

If a guest decides that they would like to purchase duty free liquor
from any of our gift shops, then they will pay the duty free price and
their respective liquor purchase will be delivered to their stateroom on
the last night of their voyage.

In addition, any liquor purchases that are made by a guest in a land
based location, will be stored onboard when they enter the vessel,
and will be delivered to their stateroom on the last night of their
voyage.

For those guests who bring wine and champagne to celebrate a
special occasion onboard, these products will be tagged and stored by
our personnel, and delivered to the guest stateroom or their dining
venue, as per their request. If these special wines or champagnes are
consumed in our dining room or specialty restaurants, or in the
Windjammer Cafe for casual dining, a corkage fee of $8 per bottle
will apply

That's great! I looked all over their website, and must have simply missed that very detailed explanation. Can you send me the link/address that got you to that particular spot?
The information you have provided will allow us to finalize our decision. We're celebrating BOTH of our Birthdays (the cruise is our only gifts to each other - my husband was thrilled with THAT plan!)...and so, we really want to make it very special...some champagne...some wine in the privacy of our room. I'm very thankful that they are reasonable in their policy. It seems very fair. And, thanks again for answering my post! We are very excited; 23 days until sail!

I want to thank everyone, very inlighting, of course we always buy our wine for dining but we also need some for our personal enjoyment in the cabin, and at the rate we drink we couldn't afford to go on a cruise if we had to buy it from room service!!!!!!!!!!!

No problem Lucie. Hope you have a wonderful time. RCCL offers a wonderful wine & dine package. You might want to look into that.

Best wishes!
