Bringing alcohol on board

I'm getting conflicting responses on whether we can bring alcohol on board or not. I saw somewhere about a corkage fee for wine but if we can bring liquor on board is it free?

right from their web site



Beverage Policy
.


QuestionWhat is the policy regarding bringing alcoholic beverages on board?Answer
Alcohol is permitted on board. However, any fragile items (including alcoholic beverages) must be hand-carried on board in the carry-on of an adult Guest – age 21 or older (dimensions can't exceed 22" wide, 14" high and 9" deep).

Alcohol brought on board may not be consumed in any lounge or public area.

Guests who arrive in the dining room, including Palo and Remy, with a bottle of champagne or wine will be charged a corking fee of $20.00 per bottle.

Please be advised: Disney Cruise Line reserves the right to remove fragile items (including beverages) from checked luggage. In such cases, items will be stored and returned at the end of the voyage. Beverage containers are considered fragile and have previously caused damage in checked luggage. All fragile items must be transported inside carry-on luggage.

No corkage fee for in-room consumption on any potent potable (I love Jeopardy). Many don't get charged even when bringing the bottle to dinner - but don't count on it.
I've not seen a bottle of liquor brought to dinner but I would count on the rule being the same - one corkage fee per bottle ($20).

Don't know where you see the conflicting messages but you are allowed to bring alcohol
Onboard.

Only in your arry-on luggage.

I you bring alcohol you are not allowed to drink the alcohol outside your stateroom.
- if you pour yourself a glass of wine (glasses you can ask your stateroom host or roomservice for) they never can tell it's bought onthe ship or not, but you aren't supposed to be walking around with brought alcohol -

If you brung your bottle of wine to the dinning room then you will be charged a corking fee of $20.
If you buy wine in the dinning room then you won't have to pay corking fees.

Thanks! It would be nice to have one or two drinks on the cruise without having to pay a fortune The conflicting responses were not on this board. It was from people I have personally talked to. Some said yes, some said alcohol was banned. Good to know!

We have brought alcohol on board before and had no issues. There is a corkage fee for wine.

However, I do not recommend bringing other liquor bottles from your personal quarters.

If was from people that you spoke to, it may have been about other cruise lines. As far as I know, Disney is the only cruise line that allows you to bring outside beverages onboard the ship.

I know a family that brings their blender for frosty drinks!!

Holland America you can bring onboard wine/champage/soda/water. No limit. Corkage fee for wine in MDR $18. No hard liquor.

Thanks for the updates...Hubby and I really only drink beer, so these are things that I didn't know. Learn something all the time from the Disboards!

Yes bring your alcohol!! We just got back on the 9th off of the magic and walked around drinking our drinks. We had 3 bottles and a 18 pack and then bought more in Mexico and brought that back on the boat. We were allowed to drink them pretty much anywhere. We were scared to bring it in the bars on beat street but all the workers said that we could, we only bought beer once when we were on the ship. I'm not sure about dinner but my husband had a flask and was pouring it in his drinks.

The rules are not to drink your brought on board alcohol outside your cabin . You are allowed to bring drinks to MDR.

We have this great perk and hope it doesn't change. We also know sometimes, likely to get better tips, CM's will turn a blind eye or out right say its ok.

All that said, if some folks do break the rules and do what they want, sooner or later we will all lose the perk.

Drinks or bottled wine? I have not read of ppl being allowed to bring other things to drink to MDR but I certainly could have missed it as I am new here.
