Ok, so I bought a soft sided rolling cooler for our upcoming Western Cruise. I received a welcome information packet in the mail from DCL and in the "what not to bring on board" section, it clearly states: NO outside food, drinks or coolers can be brought on board with the exception for medication storage or special dietary requirements. I'm bummed. I'm a single Mom on a MAJOR budget and was hoping to bring my own bottled water and canned soda for use in the room and shore excursions plus I have Crohn's disease and can not possibly risk drinking the beverages in foreign countries! Sorry this is so lengthy, but here is my question: how do others get their coolers on board? Do you leave it folded up and hidden in another suitcase? Thanks for the help.
