Many people who enjoy cruising also enjoy alcohol. Disney Cruise Line is well known for it’s policy allowing guests to bring their own alcohol onboard with them. Here is the latest change to that policy.
The new policies are effective 30 September 2015. If you are setting sail ON or after this date, these ruled apply to you.
You must be 21 years old to bring alcohol onboard. This rule has not changed. There are some additional rules for sailing going out of ports in other countries.
What can you actually bring on board? Well you can bring you favorite 2 bottles of wine OR champagne (no larger than 750 ml), must be unopened OR 6 of your favorite beers (no larger than 12 ounces), also unopened, on board at the beginning of the voyage AND at each port-of-call. Take not of the Ors and ANDs.
Alcohol brought onboard must be in the guest’s carry on and not in checked baggage. If the alcohol is in checked baggage it will be confiscated and the guest can pick it up at the end of the cruise.
You cannot bring liquor onboard. So, that 5ht of jack you have in your bag will be taken and given back at the end of the cruise. It says “including powered alcohol”. I have no idea what that is. I am guessing it’s like powered milk? Who knows, just don’t bring it.
Alcohol a guest brings onboard cannot be consumed in the dining rooms, clubs, or basically anywhere outside your room.
I you don’t retrieve your confiscated alcohol at the end of the cruise it will be “destroyed”. They do not specify what “destroyed” means. Maybe that’s code for drank.
And, as always, Disney has the right to change the rules at any time.
Hope this was informative. If you plan to cruise Disney or any other cruise line and have question please let me know. Disney has a wonderful cruise line and I highly recommend it, even if I do poke a little fun.
Until Next time,
