Rare xpcdoojk Posted May 18, 2005 #426 Share Posted May 18, 2005 I am still trying to figure out what rule I am breaking when I bring my own libations. Let see... 1 Liquor, wine, and beer are all legal products, and I am old enough to possess them. So this means that I am not violating any laws. That is good! 2 The cruiseline says that I am allowed to bring special occassion wines and specifically wines not on their list. This one is problematic due to the use of words like special occassion wines. What defines a special occassion would a 1995 Opus qualify? How about 2003 Beringer White Zin? Toughie, let's agree that special occassion means something different to each of us and therefore this is rather an open ended statement, which basically means nothing. Wines not on their list. How do we know what their wine list is? The lists that I have found here in this forum have never exactly matched what was offered on the ship. Even the wine and dine program offerings have varied greatly. This too appears to be a very vague guideline, and open to interpretation by all. 3 The cruiseline reserves the right to limit the alcohol brought on board the ship. This is the essential rule. The second point provided some broad guidelines, but not much clarity. This rule appears to be the point where the rubber meets the road so to speak. Every bag is scanned before it reaches your cabin. Therefore, we are not sneaking anything on the ship without their knowledge. We know that we are legally allowed to possess alcohol, and if I want to put it in my luggage I am completely allowed by law and by RCI to do so. Therefore, the cruiseline has the right to exercise or not exercise their right to limit the alcohol brought on board. If they exercise this option, then they will hold the liquor, wine or beer until departure for me. If they choose to not exercise this option, what rule have I broken. Simple answer NONE! Next case, please. jc Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
