I'm sorry for the confusion. I purchased our spirits, soft drinks and water from the ship. They will deliver it to our cabin. I try to always follow the rules.

You cannot bring spirits onboard, but you can purchase them from the ship.

Correct with one addition: Can bring as many 750 ml bottles of wine on board as you want, but will pay corkage fee for all but the first bottle at check-in time.

Does this mean if I bring it (one of the bottles beyond the first two), to a restaurant, I would not be charged another $15 corkage fee? Just the $15 on embarkation? (Because now I am totally confused based on conflicting posts!)

If you pay the $15 at embarkation, the bottle will be marked and you are not supposed to be charged it again in the dining room or elsewhere.

One more question. Can one bring wine onboard from ports to consume in one's storeroom?

Sometimes "yes" and sometimes "no."

Supposedly any alcohol purchased at ports is supposed to be held by Princess until the last evening of the cruise. In practice, this is rarely enforced for wine.

I know, it's kinda an old thread .... but have a question regarding bringing wine on board Princess.

I know each adult in cabin is allowed to bring 1 bottle and not be charged the cork fee. So when you open the bottle, pour it in your cabin and bring the glass with you ... out and about. It can be ANY glass, correct? It doesn't HAVE to be a glass from Princess/steward, does it? I just bought these to bring a couple on my cruise.

You can bring the wine in any vessel you like. You could even use a glass slipper, if you own one.

LOL thank you. I don't have a glass slipper.

I don't think it's as popular as it once was ... but WHY do guys drink alcohol from a girl's shoe? I SWEAR they picked my shoes because they were SO ... let's say ... lived in. I was yelling NO NO they're so old and I wear them barefoot! They just lifted me out of my shoes and filled them up. Aaaggghhhh
