No one's going to care. Put it in your carryon and don't think more about it!

We were two adults in our cabin (and one 8 year old) and I brought 4 bottles of Oregon wine and 4 22oz bottles of Oregon microbrew for our 3 night cruise. Now...those bottles were for my aunt, and were never intended to be gone by the end of the trip (I was giving them to her), and 7 of them came back off the ship (with me, ugh, she thought she would be charged customs for something purchased in the States), but with 6 bottles for 3 nights and 2 adults, no one commented at all.

When the cruise is over you get to keep the mug.

At the bars you'll continually get new mugs, so you don't have to worry about rinsing/washing yours. If you get the same kind of beer, they'll reuse your mug. If you get a different kind they'll either rinse it for you or give you a new mug. Once you're done drinking beer, you can give the bartender your mug and they will give you a card (on the magic it was a card, it might be a token on other ships). That card basically gives you the ability to grab a new mug at any other bar. So when you're done drinking you don't have to carry the mug around with you, or run it back to your room. Just trade it in for a card and put that in your pocket until you need another brew.

It's worth it if you drink a lot of beer. It's basically 4 beers for the price of three. After 12 beers you've made your money back form buying the mug, and you get to take the mug home with you.

Just off the Wonder- bought the mug and did not regret.

Draft selections were-

Bud Light
Stella Artois
Kona Longboard Island Lager
Kona Big Wave Golden Ale

The Quiet Cove bartender said there were 7 beers on board, but these were all I could find. The Kona Longboard seemed to be almost everywhere, but the Big Wave (found in Cadillac Lounge and Wavebands) was my preferred beer.

The best part about taking it bringing it back with you on the next cruise!

DH does a combo of the Beer Mug and taking his own. He normally takes on either a 24 or 30 pk in a collapsable rolling 21" suitcase. That seems to suit him very well.
