Non Alcoholic Drinks

H E L P !!

I cannot find information on this subject on the Princess website anywhere. I see information on how much wine can be walked on but not water or sodas.

Are you allowed to bring soda or bottled water on board? If yes, how much?

We're boarding the Star Princess to Alaska in 14 days.

I've seen multiple articles giving different answers but they're a little outdated and no one is in the office today (Sunday). Your expert experienced answers are most appreciated.

Thank you and Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!

I found this:

Non-alcoholic beverages may not exceed 12 standard (17 oz.) cans, bottles or cartons per stateroom. ... Princess Cruises: Princess is liberal about bringing beverages aboard the ship. According to our research, there are no real limits about what or how much you can bring onto the ship.Oct 29, 2018

Not sure where all this confusion is coming from. Lets start with "no one is in the office today..(sunday)...this is a major cruise I googled PRINCESS customer service phone number 1-800-774-6237...followed the prompts and got a person with no delay whatsoever...mebbe 10 minutes ago//that's about 6:20 PM CST, you're allowed 1 bottle of wine p/p unopened, a "case" of water, which I (and he took to mean 24 bottles) and there is no limit to soda you can bring, which, frankly kind of surprised me.

I surfed around PRINCESS'S website, and found the reference to wine and the corkage fee, which happens all over.. I couldn't find any reference to bringing soda onboard either...I may have missed it, but that didn't surprise me. It might be some beancounters attempt to limit what you bring onboard, to make you buy theirs. schlepping cases of fluids onboard isn't my thing...but nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to their "regulations"...posted or not. I suggest you call them and satisfy yourself...and you could then ask where that policy is stated in their writing. Avoid confusion boarding It happens...if you do get an answer where its stated on their website, please post the locations...inquiring minds etc...good luck!

Yankee has it about right here. But, you can pre-order a 12 pack of water for 59 cents a bottle (500 ML) and they will have it waiting in your cabin for you, after embarkation you can order from room service but only if you pay $2.00 per bottle, key word here is "pre-order" so order a couple of cases or more before sailing. Princess lets you pack on a 24 bottle case of water at no charge, but really, do you want to do that? At 8 pounds a gallon, water? They have never given us any grief at all over bringing all the soda we wanted to carry on board. I assume non-alcoholic beverages are considered the same as water or pop.

As for wine, true, one free bottle p.p. at the embarkation port only, not at intermediates. However, at any port you can bring all the wine on board you want, as long as you pay the $15.00 per bottle extra charge. Works out okay in the Caribbean or Hawaii where liquor stores abound, but try to find good wine or poor wine for that matter in ports around the world.

Thank you!

Thank you!

I probably had issues because I was attempting to contact my Princess Travel Agent who wasn't in the office, so I attempted to go directly to their office line and that's where the we're not in message came through.

I've seen information about bringing on water and soda but can't find it "officially" on their website.

As an update I phoned in this morning (Monday central time) and have yet to receive a call back.

I'll post any new information when I receive it.

Truly appreciate the help.

Thanks for the info.

I did however read that IF you purchase any alcohol outside the ship, or the Duty Free shop, you will have to store it with the ship until you disembark.

I'll end up just paying for the water to be delivered to my room and pay for the Unlimited Soda package.

generally, that's what most folks do. seems almost universal.

When I cruised Carnival a few years back (who is owned by the same company), we were allowed to bring on 12 cans of soda per person.
