Rules about checking case of 'liquids' questions and worries
My family will not be checking a case of water, but we are bringing a few bottles with for excursions. We'll just take them with us in our carry on bag...no big deal, because we aren't taking many.
I have heard over several weeks now, that most people can check a case of water along with their luggage. Sure, that is very conveniant for them- they don't have to lug it around.
Today, TWICE, I have heard o people being able to check a CASE OF BEER?!?!?! And, they, themselves have done it before and will plan to do it again.
This makes me extremely nervous. I have SEEN how people mis-handle luggage and checked items! One crack into the side of that case and beer will be all over some poor persons luggage.
I know that the Disney site specifically states that all liquids MUST be carried on board in your carry-on...RIGHT? And, if the DCL people decide to accept these liquids as 'checked baggage' are THEY at fault if someone's suitcases are covered in beer/water and things get wet?
If THEY allow it to be checked, and my baggage gets gross, you better believe I'll be furious and I'll be going to guest services.
So, will THEY clean everything? Would they properly launder all of our 'wet/smelly' things with no cost to us- with out us having to do the work? Because the last thing I want to be starting my vacation doing is cleaning my clothing and suitcase! I will be packing a few nice dresses and those can't easily be cleaned...should I think twice???
I know that they've allowed cases of liquids to be checked. I also know that it states that you are not supposed to do that in our contracts...I also know that people come to EXPECT that they can just check these things, since they've done it before. I also don't feel like people should think they are entitled to do this, but I know they do.
I have heard of other cruise lines COMPLETELY banning this (NO MATTER WHO or WHERE you are checking in)
I'm new to cruising. So, I haven't seen- but maybe they store these cases differently??? On a different forum, there's people who have gone on DCL and experianced someone elses case of water getting busted open ON their checked baggage...so I've heard that it does, occasionally happen...
