TheNewMrsGriffin Posted November 19, 2006 #1 Share Posted November 19, 2006 Hi! I'm brand new here, and I tried to make sure that this question hasn't been asked before, but there are so many posts, it's difficult to be sure. So, if I'm repeating an already-asked question, could you please point me in the direction of the thread that discusses this topic? My *brand new* hubbie and I were married in October, and we're leaving for our 14-night cruise aboard the Crown Princess in less than two weeks. (Yay!) One of our favorite things to do at home (about once every coupla months), is to get a few bottles of Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante (cheapish, but yummy, sparkling wine), and get champagne-drunk while playing cards together. Given that this is our honeymoon, and we will have a mini-suite, we would like to enjoy some Asti at least a few nights on our balcony after dinner. (Or, maybe even first thing in the morning! :p) Our ship offers Asti at $30/bottle, but we can get it in our grocery store for $8/bottle. If we would like to enjoy multiple bottles, on multiple nights, would you suggest that we take the bottles of champagne with us in our checked baggage? (I believe our ship allows wine and champagne to be brought aboard and consumed on the ship). Or, is it too much of a hassle to do that? Even if we wrap them in bubble wrap and towels, will they get broken? Will they make our baggage too heavy? Would it just be A LOT easier for us to suck it up and pay the extra money to buy the bottles on the ship? Or, is there a way we could *easily* buy champagne in San Juan (where we're departing) before getting on the ship? Any opinions/past experiences with this? Thanx so much!
