Royal Caribbean Alcohol Policy
If you’re thinking about going on a cruise there is a strong chance you’ll be on a Royal Caribbean ship as they are the second largest cruise line in the world. In addition if you’re going on a cruise you’re very likely wondering about sneaking alcohol on Royal Caribbean ships to try and save some money. Well you are in luck cause here at Camo Caps we’ve got all the info you will need for bringing vodka on Royal Caribbean ships or any other alcohol for that matter via the Royal Caribbean Alcohol Policy and some tips from yours truly.
“Guests are not allowed to bring beer, hard liquor or non-alcoholic beverages onboard for consumption or any other use. Guests may bring personal wine and champagne onboard only on boarding day, limited to two (2) 750 ml bottles per stateroom.
When consumed in any public area, each bottle shall be subject to a corkage fee of $25.00. Additional bottles of wine beyond two (2) bottles that are brought onboard or any alcoholic beverages purchased in ports-of-call or from Shops On Board will be stored by the ship and delivered to your stateroom on the last day of the sailing. Alcoholic beverages seized on embarkation day will not be returned.
Security may inspect containers (water bottles, soda bottles, mouthwash, luggage etc.) and will dispose of containers holding alcohol. Guests who violate any alcohol policies, (over consume, provide alcohol to people under age 21, demonstrate irresponsible behavior, or attempt to conceal alcoholic items at security and or luggage check points or any other time), may be disembarked or not allowed to board, at their own expense, in accordance with our Guest Conduct Policy. Guests who are under the permitted drinking age will not have alcohol returned to them.”
Now that that’s clear we’re sure you don’t care too much about the Royal Caribbean Alcohol Policy and still want to sneak in alcohol onto a Caribbean ship so you can save some money and spend it on the important stuff like on board activities and off shore excursions. So enough with the rules and on to how to break them!
One of the things you may have noticed in the Royal Caribbean Alcohol Policy is that it says security may inspect containers such as water bottles, soda bottles, mouthwash etc.
This is where Camo Caps and water bottles come in. Those items are allowed on board and Camo Caps are a perfect replacement for the original factory cap on an Aquafina water bottle or Nestea bottle (along with quite a few others) thereby allowing you to remove the old one and fill up water bottles with clear liquor or even Nestea bottles with dark liquor so that you can comply with the Royal Caribbean Alcohol Policy and still bring your liquor on board.
There are a couple things to keep in mind if you’re planning on sneaking alcohol on Royal Caribbean ships. The first is NEVER try bringing alcohol on board in your carry on! Security inspects everything thoroughly and even if you have the very best way to hide alcohol they will find it and confiscate it. You won’t lose out on your trip so don’t worry too much but at worst it’s a bit embarrassing and you just lost your liquor. If you want to avoid this embarrassment always sneak in alcohol onto a Caribbean ship in your checked luggage! If you have a 12 pack of water or tea bottles sealed with Camo cap in its original packaging you’re going to be fine even if your luggage gets examined no one will take the time to go opening people’s bottles of water or soda. It’s too time consuming and when packaged correctly there is no reason for them to think those bottles have anything but the contents they’re supposed to have. Try bringing a 12 pack of water through in your carry on and see how conspicuous that looks.
