Hi can I take a bottle or 2 of champagne in my suit case to celebrate a special day on board; we were able to with Cunard each cruise we did ?

Thanks Like trave l

People try. Some succeed (not bottles though usually), some fail and get called to the naughty room to open their luggage. We just follow the rules and budget to buy onboard.

You can buy champagne onboard at a bar or in the dining room, or ahead of time and have it delivered to your room.

Sure you can take them with you, your bottles will celebrate downstairs in a storeroom somewhere, whilst you are in your cabin or somewhere else.
Unfortuneately Royal do not allow bottles to be brought on board, but they will be happy sell you some from various bars.

Yep, we've done it twice and both times there was iced champagne and two glasses when we got to our cabin. Nice sailaway from our balcony.
