I believe that they are referring to purchased bottles from the island. If you chose to bring bottles back on board after the day in port and then have money to burn in a pile by drinking them in the dining room, their corkage fee kicks in. We however, will be drinking our jug in the privacy of our fine stateroom. LET THE PARTY BEGIN :twisted:

Oh and bring a water bottle caddy so you won't lose your $4 water.

sorry, but they will confiscate your bottles purchased in the bahamas the second you try to board back on........ buy all the rum you want.... you dont get to drink it on board.

They ARE allowing a bottle of wine or champagne per person to be brought on at embarkment for consumption. if you choose to drink it in the dining room there is a corkage fee.

This is NOT rocket science. This is the rules. They are nicer than the rules last year, so dont try to argue or fuck with them.

It is a four day cruise designed to make money off your ability to order drinks......................... allowing you to bring alcohol on the boat seriously impairs thier ability to make money.................. i would suggest giving up on the ides of smuggling alcohol on board and give in to the fact that this will be your largest bar bill ever.

No, it's NOT rocket science, but it got confusing with everyone chiming in what they thought we could and could not bring. Thanks, Bluzbill for the P.M. I'll make sure all my friends bring one bottle each person. That'll last the first hour we're there.

Evenstar, I appreciate you being a stickler for the rules and that you don't want anyone to get in trouble but you're starting to remind me of the kid that told the teacher on me in grade school. :wink:

i am actually not trying to be a stickler for the RULES
sorry that it sounds that way.
but i would LOVE for people to stop talking about hiding illegal bottles of alcohol in their baggage on a message board.

I was also attempting to help out some people with legitimate questions. The more people that know what you CAN bring, the more ppl that will have fun as we leave the port.

There are about three different conversations on this thread and soulsistah is right.. with so many people chiming in on what they think you can do rather than what you really can do, it gets confusing.


We use carnival for our corporate cruises, so i know their drill... bring a few extra bottles... the chances are VERY good that the people behind you in line didnt bring any... pass em off to them and ask them to bring em on board for you. Problem solved.

"We however, will be drinking our jug in the privacy of our fine stateroom. LET THE PARTY BEGIN" ~ on board only during embarkation at the beginning of the cruise, just like the rules state.

I have no intention of breaking any rules. I will stop "chiming" in. Sorry to ruffle feathers but jeez man. :lol:

I didn't mean to ruffle either. Why don't we all be friends, go on a cruise together in the winter, and dance to some great music for four days??? 8)

In my dream about JC last night (yes, they've begun in earnest) I forgot my ginger capsules. These ROCKED last year! Along w/ boogie-ing to DDBB as we left port I managed to gain my sea legs immediately. And w/ ginger capsules you can still drink. Yeeehawwww!

Things others forgot:
EARPLUGS!
Layers of clothes so you can dance on deck in the middle of the night
Music for in the room (only if you're so inclined)
Duck tape is an excellent idea, but medical tape or electrical tape usually won't mar any surfaces
Door decorations!
Incense
Tip for the room steward
Bedding (I am more comfy w/ my own pillow and sheet - the harsh industrial cleaners are icky)
Water bottle (I brought my Nalgene on the Maiden Voyage and was able to fill it from the water dispenser on the soda machine - in other words - FREE potable water!)

And of course...
A great attitude.

Can't wait!

i ruffle feathers simply for the make up hugs :lol:

make up hugs are also cheaper than the promise of yet another round of drinks.
