Bringing drinks on board

I was told we could bring bottled water on board. Does anyone know the rules? What about soda?

Nope! One bottle of wine only and you have to pay a corking fee if you take it out of your cabin. I buy bottled water for my booking via the website. It's inexpensive. $4.00 for 12 and you don't have to lug it on board. It will be in your cabin. That's CCL anyway

One bottle of wine per person. If doing a B2B then 2 bottles of wine per person is permitted. I agree with previous poster that it is cheaper to buy water online at the Carnival site than go through the torment of lugging on water.

That's what we will be doing, as well. :)

Princess allows bottled (non-alcoholic) beverages aboard.

As far as water, though, a prepurchase of 12 bottles is relatively inexpensive though. Worth the cost of not lugging a case of water around. You can also bring your own soda aboard.

With wine, you can bring 1 bottle per adult on board without extra fees. You can bring more, but the line charges $15 per bottle corkage over the first.

Thank you for all the responses. I like the idea of purchasing my water through the cruiseline and having it in my room. I haven't seen anywhere on Princess website where that is an option?

Go to your booking summary page, at the top you will see several options, click onboard reservation, there you will have more options, click beverage packages; bottled water is at the bottom.

Thanks AuntPinkie!

It took me a while to find it on our last Princess cruise and I always forget how to get to that link. I know it's there so I keep clicking links until I find it again. I'm happy I could help someone else through the labyrinth.Big Smile

Don't forget to have the cabin steward keep the ice bucket filled. Warm water is not refreshing. I know on CCL the fridge is not a fridge.

It is like that anywhere they stick the refrigerator in a cabinet. If you keep the cabinet doors open, the fridge will get a bit cooler.
