Now that you can take wine on board Royal Caribbean, is there a bottle store somewhere close to Circular Quay/OPT i.e. within easy walking distance. Thanks in advance.

But they are really expensive.

I brought wine with me from Melbourne and the price difference made it worthwhile.

If you can get to a Dan Murphys that would help

I just had a look with Yellow Pages on the iPad and it seems that there is no real close bottle shops.
The closest that it gave was on the corner of Hunter & Elizabeth streets which I think would take between 15 - 20 minutes slow walk, maybe less.

There are a few close pubs that may have a bottle shop that might be able to sell you some.

Define easy.

If your looking for cheaper than a pub or small liquor store there is a Coles Liquor land up George street just after Martin place. Prolly about a 10-15 min walk straight up.

Careful with RCL though. When I boarded Voyager 5th Jan they had a massive sign just before you got to security stating "No drinks (including alcohol) could be brought onboard." There was a whole lot of verbiage describing those rules.

I know they only updated their policy a couple of months back, but you may not have an easy go of it getting any onboard.

We were on the January 5 cruise on Voyager too, we managed to get a 1.25L unopened bottle of water through in our hand luggage.

We are going to bring ours with us on the flight from Bris. i checked with jetstar & they said no problem. Saves going in search of bottle shop instead on lining up to board.

if you change your mind there's a bottle shop at Circular Quay station, about a 5 minute walk from OPT
