I just left the CB last week. I took five bottles of wine. Packed them in my carry-on. If you take them to the dining rooms/restaurants they charge you a $10 corkage fee. Obviously, no charge if you open them in your romm or on your baclony. It is permitted to bring wine on board.

We all know that Princess allows us to bring wine onboard, so I was surprised when I saw this info right here on the Cruise Critic web site regarding Princess's policy about alcohol:

 

Bringing wine or Champagne onboard: Allowed if purchased during a port visit; not allowed at embarkation. May be consumed in restaurants or in staterooms. When brought to restaurants, a $10 corkage fee applies.

You can buy a wine shipper (basically a cardboard box with a "clamshell" styrofoam insert) which will hold 6 or 12 bottles.Or you can contact "Just Because of You" in FL...they will deliver wine,beer,& water directly to your stateroom so you won't have to deal with lugging it through airports...:eek:

The info provided by Cruise Critic is incorrect. Bringing wine and champagne onboard is allowed at embarkation or during any port visit. This has been discussed before.. http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=37160&highlight=princess+liquor+policy

Largin is definitely correct, the CC info is wrong. One can bring wine and champagne onboard at embarkation and from a port. We've brought wine onboard on each of our cruises without any problems.

When I posted that link, I posted the message that it was as incorrect statement...

I just thought it was interesting that the incorrect info was on the Cruise Critic web site.

Is it really necessary to be so argumentative, Larry? That's a very unattractive quality, and I am quite certain that it is responses like the one above which causes people to hesitate to post here on these boards.

Can't you be a bit nicer?

Dear LARGIN,

 

Dreamer333 is correct. You seem to want to argue with him/her, and maybe you should be a bit nicer to the other writers.

 

I am being very bold by writing my opinion here, because I know that I am bound to get some angry responses, but I think it is the mother in me that doesn't approve of bullies, or bully-behavior.

I am sure you have a lovely personality, but it doesn't come accross very well on some of the things that I have been reading from you over the past several weeks. As a matter of fact, you were one of the writers who made me very hesitant to write down my questions on this web site.

I hope you don't get mad at me for writing this, LARGIN. I hope that while I am getting many lessons about cruising, than maybe I can get a chance to give a small lesson here or there.

Please do not think I am picking on you, LARGIN. I am sure that you contain much knowledge about cruising, and I can probably learn much from you.

 

Sincerely,

Lucille

I gotta take LARGINS side on this. I didn't find his replies to be argumentative at all.

What is all this fuss? It doesn't appear terribly argumentative from what I am reading from Largin. Just what am I missing?

Same here. Do we really have to be that politically correct around here? Lighten up folks.

Lucille, I think you are a wise woman!! :D

And unfortunately, you are correct... you will (and have already) gotten some not-so-kind responses to your opinion. Just take them with a grain of salt.

(And WELCOME to the boards!!)

If you were sincerly "concuring" with what I said, than I apologize. To me, it seemed sarcastic.

 

I also apologize if I seem as tho I am over-reacting to this particular post. I guess I am just frustrated that you seem to respond to many of my posts in not such a nice way.
