Anyone recommend good wine carriers?

We sail RCL and are allowed to bring 2 bottles 750ml on-board on embarkation day. Anyone have a recommended carrier for the luggage? Thanks.

The Container Store carries a couple of options.

I’ve gone to BevMo or a wine shop and bought bubble wrapped sleeves specifically designed for wine. They have worked well for me.

Also the wine should be in your carry on and not in the checked luggage.

Except if you fly with it... It will have to be in checked luggage to fly and then transferred to carry-on to board the ship. I know so many rules......

We don't drink, but if we did, I'd make DH be my personal wine carrier Big Smile Sorry, cruisellama--couldn't resist :)

Good one!

And of those "so many rules".... how many have you bent a little?

Well this line of answers hasn't been too helpful as apparently no one this thread has used a bottle caddy, and can recommend one Nervous.

Actually, I tend to be one of those irritating people who abide by the rules.

We don't use a caddy at all. We each carry a bottle in the carry-on, maybe wrapped in a t-shirt or something. In the past we have encountered some embarkation personnel who got cranky when one person was carrying two bottles even when traveling together, so now we avoid the possibility of that. Sorry we couldn't be of more help.
