The rule is there as a curtesy to other cruisers, the Porters will take your luggage its stacked in big piles, and re stacked and taken on board, lifted and dropped.

Bottles may well break and damage your clothes and the luggage and clothes of many other people.

If it's in checked luggage, DCL has also been known to take it.

Also known 'not' to take it, ie May/May not, they do not have a confiscation policy. but RCCL will always take if found and will be looking for it, and a visit to the naughty room is arranged.

PS The previous posts were in slight *jest*.

It been reported here that they call you down to the luggage and confirm the bag and then advise you that they will return it at the end of the cruise!.

In any case its a no no!

I know that will be the case on RCCL, I know many people who have tried it on DCL and it got through. But I would point out again people shouldn't do it as it can damage their and other cases.

They xray the luggage before they bring it onboard.
Some folks who are flying put their wine in bubble wrap in the checked luggage, take the wine out when they get to FL, put the wine in the carryon and check the heavy bags with the porter at the port. Seems like a lot of work, but you shouldn't put wine in the bags that get thrown around and stacked high at the port.

I totally agree....when you can carry it onboard, why take the chance to ruin other peoples property?

The fur was flying a few days ago when DCL announced they would limit alcohol carried on to 1 bottle of wine OR 6 bottles of beer per person - effective Sept. 19, 2011! That lasted less than a day before DCL rescinded the change, but don't be surprised if DCL implements that change in the future with more advance notice.

We've been warned.
Now it's time to shame the abusers, those that carry wine into dining rooms and spirits into public places.
The servers aren't going to say anything, we need to before they bring the limits back.

Forgive this newbie for the question - I certainly don't want to be part of the problem so appreciate the clarification and boundaries! But what is the issue with having an 'adult' beverage in our personal container, say, poolside? Frankly, how would anyone know if we were drinking coke or rum and coke? I can fully understand plunking down a bottle of pinot on the table as if to say to the waiter 'ha ha, you're not getting tipped for this!' I would never BYOB to a restaurant that served wine, but we bring beverages to outdoor events where they sell crappy cheap beer and wine and that's not an issue.

And if the poolside scenario is frowned upon, where are you suppose to enjoy the drinks you bring onboard... verandah only?

Thanks for your help.
