Bringing case of water and beer onboard

I've been on 9 Disney cruises and never brought anything onboard. A friend of mine told me that he has brought cases of beer as well as cases of water onboard all the Disney ships. Has anyone else done this. I thought this wasn't allowed? He said they are the only cruise line that allows you to do this.

Yep, it's allowed! Anything you want including liquor. You have to hand carry (no checking it in your bag) and no consuming it in the public areas.

It's great for a nightcap on the verandah.

Happy sailing.

You can do it, IMHO it's a lot of effort to save a $ or two, water on the ship is good, so unless you are using the water got shore trips not worth the effort, bear you save a dollar or two, it's not cold and that is a lot of effort yo cart it on.

We took some wine and beer on board. It was great to have in the cabin, especially if you have a verandah.

Yes you can but must be in your carry on bags and NOT in checked bags. Easiest if you use some sort of rolling bag like a duffle or suitcase. It must fit through a normal airport type x ray scanner. Cases of beer must be in something.

Also, no consumption in public areas.

As the PP's have noted, its fine to bring your preferred beverages on board so long as they are in your carry-on luggage as DCL requires.

You may want to re-think the water though. If you're thinking that the water on board is like the water at WDW, it doesn't. The water on board is made the same way as the bottled water you would be bringing and tastes just as good.

I would also skip bringing the water. I am very picky about the taste of water and had no issues with the water on board. As others have said, it is highly filtered which makes it no different than waters like Dasani or Aquafina.

Thanks for the responses. I was just asking about the water only because of what my friend said. It would be nice though to have a drink on the verandah prior to dinner! Cheers!

I brought liquor on my last cruise, and that worked out fine. As far as the water, it was easier, and to me, worth the big price, to pre-order a pack of water & a couple packs of beer & have it waiting in our room when we got there.

DF, I couldn't agree with you more on the water! For me, the price of the case from Disney is well worth me lugging and tagging it.

And you are right… the ships water is great. A water bottle would suffice.

We haul our own Diet Dr. Pepper onboard because it isn't available on the ship.

The room stewards are really good about replenishing our ice bucket twice a day.

We also like to get a large bottle or two of water to take with us on shore excursions, but buying a whole case of water on the ship is a major rip-off.

Remember that you have to have someone capable of lifting the bag containing the liquid to put it on the conveyor belt at security. It's one thing to roll a bag, but another to lift and lower it.

As for bottled water...not everyone drinks locally filtered municipal water like Dasani or Aquafina. If you are a person that appreciates nice spring water, then you might want to take the bottled water. We do and do not regret it. We don't react well to the water on the ship.

My last cruise I carried on a 12 pack of beer (that's sold on board as well) in a insulated bag that fit it perfectly. No problems, and it went under the radar while drinking in public areas.

We take on a case of lager too, in our hand luggage suitcase.
Mick buys the beer token, then he'll buy a beer from the bar, then for the next one, he'll go down to the room and top up the glass from his own collection. He then comes back up to the pool and drinks it. For the next one, he buys it from the bar. It saves us a lot if money that I can then spend on Dooney!!
We would never make it obvious to anyone about doing that.

Others take spirits, get the mixer from the drinks station, go back to the room to add the vodka/gin etc, then bring the paper cup back upstairs.

Since you're carrying your beverages on, remember that you need to keep it all with you until your stateroom is ready for occupancy. That can be an issue if you are an early boarder and have a lot of carry-ons.
