I have heard of couples combining their allotments to bring aboard 1 box of wine for the 2 of them. But some older posting have noted some of the port security personel have given them problems about the 1 box for 2 people since the boxes general exceed the 750ml individual limit. Additionally it might be hard to chill the boxed wine.

I always bring a box of wine larger than the 750ml packed in my checked luggage and never have had a problem. It has always been there when I get my bags. Maybe I have been just lucky.It looks like most of your cruises were on Princess. They are not nearly as strict as Carnival

Carnival is strict when it comes to bringing your own liquorWelcome to cruise critic.
We had no problem bring scotch and gin last summer
My travel partner drinks vodka. He decided to buy a six pack of waters and fill one of the bottles with the vodka. When he brought it in, the security grabbed the six pack and knew immediately which one had the vodka in it by looking at the bubbles. Apparently, they are trained to notice the difference between water and clear alcohol just by the physical appearance of the liquid.
quote=CruiseLover19852012;34053914] I emptied my bottle of red wine and filled it with Jack Daniels. I used a bottle of wine with a twist off cap and made it look like it had not been opened.How did you manage to make the twist off cap look like it had not been opened???
[I just took the cap off lightly and easily. When I screwed it back on, I just made sure the seal was pressed back up against the cap. They didn't even look at it so it didn't really matter how it looked.

Does Norwegian Cruise Lines let you bring wine or liquor on board?YOu will probably get better answers if you post this on the NCL section
Does Norwegian Cruise Lines let you bring wine or liquor on board?Yes you can bring wine but there is a $15.00 corkage fee per bottle and according to the NCL Board that included not only having it at a restaurant but in your room.
I have read you can bring wine on Carnival, what about Royal Carribean?RCI does not allow you to bring wine on board their ships.
