BYOB Rules for Cruises

Share on: Share on Google+

One way to make your cruise cheaper is to bring things like drinks aboard. But on some ships, this is now forbidden.

Here’s what you need to know about bringing drinks on cruises.

It’s a common misperception that most cruises are all-inclusive and offer lots of free beverages.

On most major cruise lines today, that’s not the case.

In fact, the average cruiser spends about as much on board as they do for their cabin.

But recently, Carnival Cruise lines joined Royal Caribbean in banning all drinks from being brought on board.

After an outcry from cruisers, Carnival reversed the policy and now allows small quantities of non-alcoholic beverages.

Royal Caribbean, officially, still does not.

Still, some cruisers have reported being able to take small quantities of drinks aboard.

So keep the quantities small, and you could save some money by bringing your own beverages.
