    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 :rotfl2:

    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!

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

    This is awesome. The first time around I was nervous about bringing on board a large amount, but this time around im going to have a designated carry on filled with the booze :)

    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.:thumbsup2

    Like someone either said earlier on this thread or in a different thread, Disney already has your money...unlike Carnival where the rates are so cheap and they expect to make their money back on booze and gambling. Perhaps Disney figures that the extra thousand dollars a person to sail on their ship is worth having a few adults bring a bottle of booze and consume it in place of Disney booze.
    Having said that I'm leaving Sunday for my first Disney cruise, and I will have plenty of booze with me. However I also fully intend to purchase many drinks on the ship, such as your usual piƱa colada type drinks that I can't necessarily make in the room and also any beers I might want. DCL is going to get their booze money from me and I'm bringing a ton of booze on the ship. ;-)

    What if I purchase a mixed drink in one of the bars, am I allowed to ring it to the MDR??? I don't want anyone thinking I mixed it in my room and I'm trying to sneak it in!!

    You can take it with you anywhere you want :)
    We often got a drink before dinner and took it to the MDR.

    We use a carry on size rolling suitcase for our alcohol. Wrapping some tshirts around the bottles reduces the clanking/clinking noise. :rolleyes1

    Last cruise we didn't drink all that we brought on, so this summer we are greatly reducing what we bring on board. Probably just some rum for DH. I really like the beer in 687 and it's reasonably priced. Someone asked about taking your alcohol on CC. Yes, we've always taken a few beers to the beach. You can also get a bucket of ice from one of the bars to chill them in.
