We brought two flasks on in our carry-on, no one every looked or cared. We did one vanilla rum and one cherry rum for mixing with cokes from the drink stations. We got these cool plastic travel flasks from Bev-Mo that were pretty heavy duty and much lighter than a glass bottle.

I know there is a fee if we bring it to our dining table, but was wondering about any other restrictions.

Thanks!

We had no problems, Dream Feb 2011 we bought rum in Nassau and mixed rum and cokes in our room and carried them to the pool areas. Mar 2013 Wonder we bought beer in Nassau which we also carried to the pool areas, and we bought a bottle of wine in Key West and brought it to one of the main dining areas to have at dinner. I have to say our assistant server appeared a little suprised, but he bounced right back and we had no problems sharing it amongst the three adults in our party.

I have never taken drinks to the MDR.
But if I get the same horrid service on my next cruise as on my last, I may start and just bring a glass of wine.

(I was willing to buy the glass of wine, they weren't willing to take the order or if they did actually go get the wine. You could have WATER, other beverages were beyond thier skill sets!)

Perhaps your servers were brining drinks to the MDRs?

That would explain a lot... maybe that's why the food was never hot they had to stop and chug a few rounds between courses

Bring what you like

We brough two bottles of Crown and 18 single wine servings. Three adults, way overkill. Drink of the day was only $4.75. I was the person in charge of liquor. Had back pack, they scanned it. Never said a word.
We got in room at 1:30 and stweadest was right their. Asked for bucketof ice, she said would be around 5 before that service started. Gave her 10 dollars, next thing their was ice, and it was full for the whole 6 days. Had a guy at adult area that became part of the GROUP, he had gallon rum in back pack and would pull it out and mix another one all day long. No one said a word to him. He was discreat about it.

Was that full size bottles of Crown? Or half size?

I'm wondering if they would have an issue if I brought on board the full size 750ml ??

Oh, where did you find the single serving of wine?

Thanks!

Well-stated!

Their policy is that you can bring alcohol on in your carry-on. They don't care how much.

Thanks for the replies!

I totally agree. We have been trying to keep this nice little perk, but if DCL decides to many people are ignoring the rules they may take it away.

The bottom line folks, is please obey the rules, we are all on the same playing field, no one is above the rules.
