How do you smuggle booze? I'm a first-time cruiser (sailing in July), and I've heard that they actually go through your luggage to make sure you don't have any alcohol. I'd love some tips! :P
There is actually a thread somewhere about how to smuggle booze, maybe on the Carnival threads.... They WILL take full bottles out of your luggage and give them back to you at the end of the cruise (no, I have not tried this, only read about it...they leave a note in your luggage). I have also read about guys (and I'm sure some gals) bringing flasks or filling smaller toiletry bottles with booze. The only time I actually brought any, I put it in a water bottle. I didn't even drink all of it, LOL. A bottle of wine goes a long way for me, as do the two larger beers in a bucket that are mine. I have taken my second bottle back to the room! Depending on if we buy a nice wine or bottle of champagne during the week, the price we spend can vary considerably. Although we have never done the booze package, we often buy the wine package for dinner. In port, the ABC stores and bars offer cheap alternatives if you want to avoid the ship prices, but not always.
