OK. I can't use my standard soft roll carrier anymore.

It needs to be in a bag of some kind and needs to be carried on. Maybe use a small rolling suitcase or backpack.
Apparently, it's supposed to be in some sort of bag (or cover). I've read where some people were given black plastic garbage bags to put their beverages in if they were carrying them in the open.
If you are not taking the Disney bus to the port you have the driver stop at the store. I have see many people mention they have the driver stop at the store for things they forget or cannot carry on the flight. If you are in a motel before the cruise there are companies that deliver to your room.
I wonder - can you bring a small suitcase with the soft sided cooler in it? Is the ban just for carry on or is it a total ban on soft sided coolers?
From the DCL website:
What items are not permitted on board?
In order to maintain a safe and secure environment for our Guests and crew, the following are examples of items that Guests are not allowed to bring on board. These and other similar items will be confiscated upon being found.
Large Ice Coolers (Please note: small, personal-sized coolers, no larger than 12" x 12" x 12" brought onboard for the purpose of housing medications are permitted as carry-on luggage.)
Can coolers and/or food items be brought on board?
Coolers are not permitted except for those needed for medications, baby food or items related to dietary constraints. Items must be pre-packaged, unopened and cannot require any food prep from the kitchen. Coolers filled with personal items (e.g. soda, chips, candy, etc.) may not be brought on board. Homemade items or pre-cooked items purchased on the way to the ship will not be allowed to be brought aboard. Also, open bags or containers of snack items should not be brought aboard. All items will need to be stored in the stateroom; the ship's storage and/or refrigeration are not available to use.
If all else fails, go to the rules! Thanks for posting.
We used a small suitcase for DH's beer. When he was ready to drink them, we asked for a bucket of ice from the pool bar to keep them cold and tipped them of course. We never felt the need to actually use a cooler.
Just off the Dream this past week. I had no problems brining ice packs and small cooler onboard. My two sons carried their soft-sided lunch boxes with ice packs and yogurt and snacks in them. Put them on the scanner belt and had absolutely no issues. Also had a backpack filled with drink boxes and another very small soft-sided cooler with ice packs and more of my son's food. Again, absolutely no problems or questions.
I was really worried about brining my son's food onboard but no one questioned anything.
