I have a wine store in my area that has cheap corks and shrink wraps. It should pass through security without any issues. Has anyone ever been stopped? Thanks.

Which port and which cruise line are you asking about?

Each cruise line sets their own proceedures for checking. You may want to post in the section for the line you will be sailing with

Worked great. I went with Carnival out of Miami. They checked the seals and said I was good to go. I skipped buying the corks, because then I would need a corker. The shrink wraps worked great and created a tight fit. They did see how tight they were. Was only $5 for the wraps.

It may have helped that we also packed soda and water. That's where their focus was.
