I know NCL will not let you bring alcoholic drinks on to the ship but what is there policy for Non-Alcoholic drinks. Has anyone tried to bring a case of pop on?

We take a case of pop with us on board every cruise. There is no problem doing this. I know that pop is a lot cheaper here in Canada than in the US. Depending where you are departing from, it is often more convenient to purchase it in the US. That said, most of the cruise terminals do not have anywhere to buy pop. We fly down a day ahead and then find a store close to our hotel.

We have always packed two liters in the giant 2 gallon size zip lock bags (in case of a leak). They make the suitcase heavy, but we haven't ever had a problem with it before. Just curious for those of you who bring the cases of pop--do you carry them on or pack them?

We carry them on-- last time it was a case of diet peach snapple. I see some people in Canada call it pop like they do in the Midwest and western NYState(my wife is from Fredonia)

Thanks everyone. I have taken cases of pop on to Celebrity before with no problem but I wasn't sure about NCL policy. NCL likes to get all the money it can from you when you are on the boat.

Thanks again.

They all do - it is all about revenue per passenger - a key measure of the industry. I guess it's pay them now or pay them onboard

I had no problem taking bottled water and soft drinks on board in Feb. We bought them in port and just carried them on in shopping bags.
