When you agree to a contract to follow rules and policy and disregard it as "not for me" it's not saving a buck, it's lying and cheating. It's that mentality which crashes anytime dining, line cutting, saving 10 seats in the theatre ................
Either you have a moral compass or you don't. Apparently the OP does and states she will buy her beverages on board.
I guess I don't.
I see many people have already responded to your comment so there nothing more to add.
Drink up & be happy.

Must be nice to be perfect.
Like uou none of us are perfect. Unlike you most of us do not feel like we have to be high and mighty and force standards on people that want nothing to do with yours. Like the saying goes "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." You should not be vasting disparity on anyone unless you can show you have never done any wrong. Otherwisr hypocrisy suits you very well. A fall from your high horse will cause grave injury. So be careful.

The "entitlement" attitude of today is just horendous. Of course we've all done something slightly ascew but usually not deliberatly and never would I think to ask on a public forum how break the rules and polcies. True colors are coming out for many who must feel so entitled they're oblivious to RIGHT & WRONG.
You accepted a contract with your fare, doesn't that mean anything. If you don't like the terms and conditions then don't enter into a contract with Princess.

I've been cruising for maybe 30 years.

Folks have been smuggling alcohol for as long as I can remember.

Been sipping some beers while watching the Virginia - Duke game? You may want to re-read your post and reflect upon what you have said in the context of what you have preached. It is quite comical, though.

Sure, you have to agree with their "contract" otherwise you can't board the ship. At that point anything I can get away with is fair game. Saving seats- show lounge & on deck, dress down on formal nights & smuggling of course.

We're around 30 years of cruising also -- no need to smuggle back then, you were welcome to bring whatever you wanted to drink in your cabin, like a hotel (there are some similarities)

NCL pioneered banning guest bringing alcohol aboard in the mid-nineties, other lines slowly followed suite, and smuggling was born

I specifically remember our first Carnival cruise in 1988 -- the shop aboard had two prices on the bottles - one about the same as our supermarket prices, for bottles to take to your cabin and a lower (real duty free) price for them to hold for you to take home.

If the Boston Tea Party settlers dressed as Native Americans had not illegally boarded that ship, stole the barrels of tea and dumped them in the bay, we would still be singing "hail to the queen"! Luckily they chose to "break the law" and revolt against their king. Those loyal to the king moved to Canada. You could say they felt entitled to do that. Something to think about.

Oh how true and a long standing posting on cruise critic including the various ways to do it. I imagine it is still quite well today.

Bet if the cruise lines didnt mark up alcohol prices so much there would not be nearly the smuggling that goes on these days.

and btw we stopped smuggling a few years ago as we do not drink nearly as much as we used to.

I can see that you're a little bitter about all the people who have been successful at smuggling since you've been caught a few times.

Not watching anything that says UVA on it. I see no need to reread or reflect. Go Hokies.

By the way just went to formal night last evening. Did not wear tux or suit coat and was admitted with no problem. Your buddy Jan must not have adhered to this so called letter to your reply. Will go again n a few days to see if maybe it will change mid cruise.
