Find Your Cruise
How much is a cocktail on a NCL cruise. How much is a G&T.
Not if you cruise with Olsens, they only allow you booze you've bought on board and all baggage is xrayed on boarding. P & O are more relaxed about it.
Most cruise lines state you are not allowed to bring drink - we ALWAYS do - at least 4 bootles - 2 of which are champagne ! We put them in the middle of our suitcase - have you seen the thousands of cases going on board !! Never been a problem - they even gave me the ice and champagne glasses in my cabin to drink them.
NCL will tell you in their brochure, No! But who is to know? As far as I know, luggage is not screened prior to being put on a ship. We have had wine 'illegally' in a ship's cabin fridge many times & the only person who knows about it iss the cabin steward & he won't blow the gaff. By the way, Princess will allow wine to be brought on board for 'special occasions'.
E went on NCL Sun earlier this year. They are very srict about bring drink on board. We took wine boxes & champagne through fine. The boxes were in hand luggage but did not show up on xray machine. Champagne was OK too, but friend with drink in hand luggage was confiscated. They had it delivered back on last night - & we drank it then!
No, NCL will not allow you to take any alcohol aboard, even in your suitcase. I cruised from Dover to Barcelona on the Norwegian Dream ((Sept. 27 - October 9) and a number of passengers had their baggage held on boarding and were advised to report to where the luggage was. On arrival, they were made to open their cases and hand over the "illicit" (their word) bottles. One man in particular was incensed because he was humiliated in this way...and all over a bottle of wine. Petty!!!!!
I have never sailed on the Norweigan Gem but have sailed regularly on Orient Lines Marco Polo which is owned by NCL and have often taken wine with me and also bought it ashore at ports of call and have had no difficulty in taking it aboard to have a pre dinner drink in my cabin. What is not allowed was to consume it in the Dining Room or bars unless you pay 'corkage'. Hope this helps.
Yes you can but they charge 15 dollars corkage.Parker Sheffield.
Depends on your cruiseline ...... Cunard had no objection to case of wine being delivered to our cabin in Cape Town, but others search the hand baggage. If you can wrap it safely in your main luggage you should be OK.
If you tend to drink a reasonable amount of wine, try packing 'wine-boxes' in your luggage - have done it several times and have found no probs.
