Thanks to you too! We are actually leaving out of Detroit since we are so close to the border so I can't even pull that one off.
Maybe if I tell everyone in our FE group that my 5yo DD really likes whiskey...

I am sure they could, but they wouldn't be able to carry it on the plane with them. They would have to check it & then move from checked luggage to carry on in Florida, which I would probably do in their situation. I would make sure to buy plastic bottles though.

I think it depends! When we took a cruise out of Puerto Rico, we were able to shop at the Duty Free on the way back and bring it on the plane. They put it in a pouch for us and sealed it with a "security strap" so it could not be opened without cutting it. I think the thought is that since the strap has to be cut and knifes, scissors, etc. are not allowed on the plane, the passengar would not have access to the liquids.

They could not get duty free liquor when driving across the border from Canada into Michigan and then take that liquor through security as a carryon. The suggestion I was replying to was for them to get duty free liquor before getting to the airport.

We brought off 2 half full bottles on our Dream cruise. The customs agent never even looked or said anything..(We were spending 5 days at WDW after otherwise we would have just dumped it.) However, It ended being dumped anyways..(Too busy for a drink)

I would hope you had the reciept for the bottles..........becuase its not a good idea to play word games with Customs, I know what you meant, but if they checked your bags........you better have the reciept and hope they accept it as proof!.........they WILL lock you up fast and fine you big time!.......worse then the IRS....you just can't win againist them, especaiily in todays terror world!

We took one bottle of amaretto on our Mexican Riviera cruise for mixed drinks. We did not finish it and it was too much to just leave it behind. So, we put it in our carry-on bag leaving the ship. When we went through the customs check we filled out the form stating that we did not purchase any alcohol (since we did not). We got to the customs agent. DH handed him the form. He said, "No alcohol or tobacco?" DH said, "No." I said, "Well, no." The agent said, "Should we try that again?" I explained (in not so many words) that "we brought a sealed bottle from home on the cruise and did not finish it all. We had that bottle with us and nothing more. We didn't want to just throw it out, but if we aren't allowed to bring it back home, we will throw it out here."

- pause -

Agent: "Do you have any OTHER alcohol or tobacco?"
"No."
"Welcome home."

Now, we were not flying, but that's our story coming back in to the US (our home country) with alcohol we took with us.

Of course, your mileage may vary,

One bottle (as long as it's <1 L) wouldn't be a customs problem regardless of whether you acquired it at home or abroad.

What would be a problem is if you had multiple bottles and no proof that you purchased them in the US.

Thanks all...

It sounds like it's been decided: my daughter is really hoping for whiskey in her FE exchange. Pass it on!

I think because...
Lots of luggage getting handled on those ships. Broken liquor bottles cause messes not only to your luggage but others. Just bring a roll on carry on to put your liquor in and take it through the security at the gate. Not a problem and you really don't have your carry on luggage that long until your room is ready.


Depending on your itinerary, we bought our liquor in Key West and Cozumel and just walked it back on the ship. I think they still allow that.

This would be one answer - here is a picture of one of the baggage room where your luggage waits to be delivered to your room


Another answer would be - DCL asks you to.

Maybe someone in your fish exchange would be willing to bring a bottle for you if they are stopping/driving??? worth asking your meet group.
