I can understand putting limitations on the size of a cooler brought on ship. But when the cooler is no bigger than a tote bag or other carry-on item someone might bring, it should be allowed through. I really don't want to have to go back to the car and leave the cooler and re-bag the beverage items if they decide it is too large. What if I carried the cooler empty and carried the beverages separate? Then once I am through security, I can put the beverages into the cooler, which is sturdy and would be easier to carry onto the ship, and around the ship, until our cabin is open?
I completely understand what you're saying. I know what Carnival is trying to limit...those big bulky hard-sided coolers one would take on a picnic. I get that. But as I and several other folks have mentioned on this and previous threads, sadly, the Carnie folks individually
interpret policy as they see fit. Drives me nuts!!!!!
I see you'll be going out of Jax. Not sure about Jax but most complaints I've seen on the boards stem from Galvaston and NOLA ports. So maybe that's a nod in your favor.
