There are so many wine making materials out there. Couldn't you just reseal it and carry it on full of what ever you want. Most wine bottles are opaque and you can't tell what is in there. If you have a cork and a seal over the top who would know?

We did this a couple of years ago! It works like a charm, but is really only cost effective if you already have the equipment. I like your devious thinking---I was so proud of myself when I came up with this idea.

Steam sealed tops are only 2$ on ebay. Corks are cheap enough. I drink wine. So I have the bottles.

That's how we brought a bottle of Dad's homemade wine on our cruise last summer.

But wine is legal. Maybe a good way to get your vodka on there. However I am thinking about just buying some bottles from bon voyage. It night be easier.

Even more foolproof would be to follow the rules and set an example for others.

Ok - that said. Bringing your own wine is fine. We once bottled a batch that was coincidentally called Baby Bacchus Red. We brought a couple bottles onto The Miracle (whose MDR is Bacchus). The maitre' d asked for one of the empty bottles, refilled it, corked it, and displayed it behind his station as a wine they no longer served.

Yearly sailings, sometimes more, sometimes less; but always at least one booked or in the planning stage. Pictures from some can be found under Carnival Crusin' on our webpage at: http://fl4some.com

We have cruised with our DSs since they were 2 and 4 and have always taught them respect and honor, and to have a little fun at the same time. They were kids, behaved like kids, and were on their vacation as well.

We have NEVER had a cruise "ruined" by out-of-control kids, MDR service or table-mates, or weather; our anniversary is right in the middle of hurricane season so we have sailed around many. The only ones who could ever ruin our vacation are ourselves and we'd never let that happen.

More coming...

Just trying to help a few out. Anything that has been of this sort is hardly ever original.
