we love to order room service upon pulling out of Cape Canaveral and listen to the music and deck party from the privacy of our own veranda.

I like to go in the back side of the buffet from the outside deck at the end of the buffet at two o'clock, nobody in line, still lots of food available.


When they call for 2:1 drinks at the family pool, if you ask they will also give that to you at the adult pool.

Also this cruise we waited in the Cadillac Lounge for last call to depart the ship, we had the full last day we could get and walked off the ship with no line. It was lovely and nonrushed.

Technically you aren't allowed to do that with the sandwiches. Yo uaren;t allowed to bring off food from the ship to a port, unless it is prepackaged, like crakers in a wrapper, etc.

Who says you aren't allowed to do this? Is it the law of the country or DCL rules or something else? I know lots of people do this, and I think it's good to know the quality of the food you are eating.

Has anyone ever been "caught"? What was the punishment?

Yes, technically you shouldn't take food off the ship unless it's prepackaged. They don't normally enforce it at places like Cozumel, but they definitely enforce back at Port Canaveral. There is a hefty fine. We've always been given literature stating we can't take food/perishables off the ship at different ports from what I can recall.

Yeah, but the Uncrustables (PB&J) that you get from room service are pre-packaged!

I thought that was a law from Customs. It's not just a DCL rule. When I've traavelled to other countries they have had the same rules. Also when we went on a different cruise too.

I was planning to take some Uncrustables to Atlantis for the day because I heard that the meals there are very pricey. (We booked the excursion on our own, so lunch is not included.) Since they're prepackaged, I'm assuming that's okay. Are there any other prepackaged foods available from room service (i.e. bags of chips, pretzels, or cookies) that I could request as well?
TIA!
Katie

We were on another cruise line, I forget where we were getting off..but they were making people empty out their food from their bags before they let us off.
I guess it depends if they fell like it enforcing the rules that day.

OK, thanks. I do remember that being a Customs rule at Port Canaveral, but did not remember it from the ports.

Yes, I beleive that it is an international customs law. I think it depends on the country too. Some probably force it more than others. The US is one country that usually does. They even told us last cruise if that drug dog goes to your bag becuase of food, you can be in trouble that way too.

I walked off carrying an entire cake at Port Canaveral and no one said a word. They only food they were concerned with being carried off was fruits and veggies, meats may also not be allowed.

We've always taken snacks off in ports, including when we went on a northern European cruise this past summer. These included prepackaged and some that are not.

Thanks for all the info. I was considering taking some grub onto the islands to save money for something else. Good info to consider.

I'm scanning all my important documents (passports, driver's license, credit cards front and back) and emailing them to my Yahoo account. That way, if something happens, I can access them myself through the internet cafe.

DO NOT DO THAT!!!!

you will be exposing yourself to loss of information and fraud by putting it out in the open like that.

Just make extra copies and put them in with your documents. I always keep an extra copy separate from my wallet, etc.

You should be fine.

If it helps... give copies of those things to a trusted family member or friend just in case you need them. Don't put them out on the internet...
