Sneaking Booze On a Cruise Ship

Bon Voyage magazine published a story on how to sneak booze on a ship:


What methods have you used to sneak booze on a ship? Any tips or tricks? Has anyone used the mouthwash bottle idea?

Here's our last attempt at smuggling. #BoozeFail

Hey, we got that same letter once...haha..

I've used the all plastic camping flasks. Kept them on my hip through security.

Never opened them onboard. Big Smile

I am not going to tell my methods , if I did everyone would know :)


It's just not worth the effort. The prices aren't any worse than any Manhattan bar. At least NCL has a good bourbon selection at Maltings Pub. What I need is a way to smuggle aboard good coffee Happy. I spend more at the Java Cafe than at any bar.

I think you can bring your own coffee on board , I do

Some friends of mine say they have had luck smuggling adult beverages using a "Rum Runner" device on multiple cruises with no problem. I'm tempted to try it myself.

Pay your porter a little something extra and we bring a recapped soda bottle chaser mixed in.

Listerine bottles! if you put a lighter up to the plastic you can reseal it :)

Also, get your wine bottle and a friend you knows how to cork it and but your liquor in there....
