In my view, Carnival Corporation is looking to reach higher alcohol sales targets on board their P&O UK ships and stop pax binging their own booze on or restricting it to one bottle of wine or champers pp at embarkation only, not at ports of call. Like Princess does, with $15 corkage on each excess bottle.
P&O Australia does not permit any booze to be brought on board.
I believe this is the way it is going to be for all Carnival brands.
Having done a few cruises with P&O UK now, we do like the fact that we can bring a few wines on, but we still purchase a bottle of wine each night in the MDR.
