January 2015 - 5 Night Western Caribbean Getaway (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Caribbean Princess
I enjoyed everything about the cruise. The food was delicious. The entertainment was good. We chose the Swimming with the Dolphins Land Excursion in Costa Maya which was incredible.
Our only drawback was that we bought a bottle of Amoretta Tequilla in Cozumel and brought it back to the ship. We checked it at the deck when we came back on board and we were told it would be boxed, wrapped safely, and placed outside our stateroom on Friday night. It was returned on Friday night in the same bag that we brought it in on with no wrapping or box. We got through customs off the ship with it in our carry on but when we got to the airlines we were not allowed to bring it onto our flight. I had to go back to the Delta check in and ask if they had a box it could be checked in which they did not. I had to donate the Tequilla to Delta Airlines and rush back through customs to make it to the flight in time. What should we have done and how can this be prevented from happening again?
