Since you don't want the chocolates, why not just order a bottle of sparkling wine when you are settling in your room? We're Platinum so lately I've called room service as I begin to unpack our carryons. Delivery is always prompt. Yes, it arrives chilled in an ice bucket with glasses.Yeah it sounds like they don't do that any more. I think I am going to skip it this time. I don't want to spend my precious cruise ship time waiting around in my room for a delivery that could take who knows how long. I will just grab a glass from the nearest bar when we are out and about.
They did say that Texas had an international waters requirement but the other ports did not. But still, I don't like the idea of playing "find that champagne" by having to ask around to try to make the delivery happen.
Why do you think you can no longer do that? I agree....it is a lovely way to start the cruise.I always order a bottle to drink when the Mickey Horn blows at sail away! Looks like I won’t be able to do that anymore then!
Can I carry a bottle on in that case? I don’t usually bring any alcohol onboard but my sailaway champagne has been my tradition since forever. I don’t want it any other time.
I recently ordered sparkling wine for my son and his wife who were sailing on the Dream. It was waiting in the stateroom. Only very young children with them, though. Perhaps DCL is more cautious if there are teens in the family.Interesting! Helpful to have a recent report. I am now thinking I will just roll the dice ordering it and see what happens.
Those kind of packages have always been set up in the room when we arrive.Interesting. I was planning to order the stateroom decor package (nautical theme) as it's a first cruise for our two younger daughters. I am assuming this would still be done prior to us being allowed in our cabin. Does anyone know for sure? If it's not done ahead of time as a surprise, I won't bother.
Prosecco in my experience.Good to know - we are also two adults. Do you recall what the sparkling wine was? It's our first time as Platinum and I'd forgotten that this was something you get as Platinum. I don't want to order another bottle of the same thing.
