Thank you for saying that! Not to mention another $3 - $8 for shipping.
I guess if a person would use the flasks a lot it might pay off.

Is there a limit to how much beer you can pre-order to keep in your room?

Default Not worth the effort IMO

I worried about getting caught smuggling in alcohol and instead opted to buy a liter of vodka from Carnival for $40- and brought my own small bottles of cranberry juice and tonic water plus a couple of limes. Best decision I made- the liter was plenty for the week and I had a few beers from the room refrigerator and an occasional drink about the ship.

We also brought on the allowable bottles of wine and bought a wine package.

Our bar bill for the cruise was very reasonable and we did it easily within the rules.

I had my bottle of Whiskey sent to my room by Bon Voyage and bought my DH 5 days (4 a day) bar coupons and he got those the first night at dinner. I brought my own Gingerale on with me.

Carnival is not very specific but mostly they let you have a 12 pack per person in your carry on.

For any of you that have ordered tequila. I just called Bon Voyage, and the only silver they have is Patron. The 1800 they carry is gold. Also, someone mentioned they have Grand Marnier, which the lady told me they don't, they just have Triple Sec.
My question is, would the 1800 gold and triple sec make a decent margarita.
You can tell I don't make many of these.
Thanks.

We use squirt & tequila for a nice margarita...with plenty of lime juice and a dash of triple sec if you want.

One other thing to note about buying booze through the Bon Voyage Dept. No added 15% gratuity. All drinks bought on board at the various bars have the 15% added over and above the price.
