I agree with you, that a few others have spoiled it for others. I made the mistake of joining a group of 30 (I knew one couple) on another cruise line. But their behavior convinced me that cruise lines have the right to regulate liquor in their own rooms. The last two cruises "brought some liquor" on board, and went home with some. I love the Champagne Bar before and after dinner. Get a drink to watch a show. So this cruise, I have ordered a bottle of wine for my Mom and I in the room to exchange a cocktail. So no "smuggler" this time.
