perhaps this could be another task of the "High Brow Vigilante" between patrolling the MDR for inappropriate clothing

Thanks for all the responses! Our cocktails would be for the room, so no rules broken! I love the idea of the punch, rum and ice cream mix!

I used my DCL souvenir colored cup and took it everywhere with me. We never carried bottles or anything more than by the glass. Its no more conspicuous then buying a drink to take around the ship with you (which I did the first time I got the souvenir cup.)

If you aren't sitting on deck with a 6 pack, no one will mind, just use common sense and be mindful of others.

Alcohol is permitted on board. However, be aware that any fragile items (including bottled alcohol) must be hand-carried on board in a day bag and/or carry-on bag, the dimensions of which cannot exceed 22" wide, 14" high and 9" deep. Alcohol brought on board may not be consumed in any lounge or public area. Guests who arrive in the dining room with a bottle of champagne or wine that has been brought on board will be charged a corking fee of $20.00 per bottle.

I guess I've never really thought about it before, but if you purchase an alcoholic drink onboard you can walk around with it, can't you? I'm not complaining about the "consume your carry-on liquor in your room" rule, I'm just wondering why you can't have it out on the deck. I can see why they don't want you taking it into a bar or lounge. Just wondering.

get two big cups Fill one with Rum from the room the other fill with soda from the soda station. Get two straws and drink from each cup at the same time. no need to go back to the room. Not like you could even get back to your room if you tried!

Because they sell it - and make a LOT of money on it. That's basically what it comes down to. The other reason is the glass thing. Cups and beer bottles onboard (outside of the dining rooms and lounges) are plastic.

I'm on vacation so I'm gonna drink ;)

I brought a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream and the tiny bottles of Captain Morgan's spiced rum on board. I brought 2 bottles of the rum to the dining room every night and put them in my coke. The CM's never said a word! During the day, I would walk around with a cup of Bailey's. You could usually find me on Deck 4 in a lounge chair with a drink in hand! In the evenings before dinner, we would go to the lounge where I would have a very large chocolate martini. I was feeling quite happy by the time we got to the dinner table! As long as you are not sloppy drunk and making a fool of yourself as if you were on Carnival cruise lines , nobody is going to say anything to you. Enjoy your liquor but be responsible. After all, it is a family ship!

Just a good buzz most of the time :-)

That is so awesome! We are going on the Fantasy next year for our 30th anniversary and my husband and I enjoy mixing our own, and looking forward to our verandah and drinks!

I will always suggest Sailor Jerry rum and coke. Tastes like spiked vanilla coke yum! I also recently found Jose Cuervo Watermelon Margherita and its tastes just like watermelon jolly ranchers! Yum! Plus it's already pre mixed so you just add ice. I plan on bringing a couple of those on our next cruise

I use the glasses from my room, unless I'm on the pool deck then I use the red plastic ones. I know their small, but I get exercise by going back for refills.
