    I am departing from Jacksonville, FL Monday on a 4 day Carnival cruise with stops in Key West and the Bahamas. I have never been on a cruise before. I have heard multiple techniques in sneaking alcohol onto the ship, but I'd like to hear the best. TIA.​

    bottled water, buy a thing of 12 and open the plastic wrapping to get them out, empty out water and fill with clear alcohol and put them back in. keep a few of them as water and put them in front where you opened the plastic. dont forget to bring your 2 bottles of wine that they let you bring aboard

    We just put it in our bags and never had a problem.

    But if you're worried...If its clear water bottles works. If it is whiskey listerine bottles work. Don't let it leak.

    Carnival doesn't even check checked bags for booze. Just toss it in your luggage.

    would already opened plastic wrap not raise suspicion?

    I tried something similar to this and it didn't work fwiw. Not saying it won't, just saying it didn't for me so be careful.

    Are all cruises like this? I've been on one but I was 14.

    I wouldn't even go on a cruise if I had to pay for their booze.

    Carnival - Just toss it in your luggage
    Royal Caribbean - Generally just tossing it in your luggage works, but try something inventive just to feel safe (ie. water bottles). They're nazis on their brand new ships though.
    Norwegian - They check everything.

    I was also underage at the time so I probably had a deer in the headlights look on my face that just screamed, "You should check my bags"

    Went on this exact cruise in 09. I filled up several water bottles with vokda, and my suitcase has a zipper inside on the bottom (creating a false bottom). Put all my alcohol in the secret spot. Dont really think they checked for it anyways. For beer drinking get the bucket with 4 beers in them (saves you a few bucks every time). Also be careful in the casino, I dont know one person who didnt get butt raped in it.

    You can even just throw cases of beer in gym bags and then just check those. Do it all the time on Carnival for drinking games.

    Went on a Carnival cruise just over a year ago and they def checked as they held a suitcase in our party until 8 at night. Didn't find anything though. Probably too late, but in the future, buy some Scope about a month ahead of time, rinse it out to get rid of the Scope taste and later fill it with booze. That usually works, as I'm sure a shampoo bottle would as well. I've read that alcohol bubbles differently when you shake it as opposed to water and scope and they test in on board, which I don't understand but it's something remember.

    Nah, that's all free. Unless you want a steak dinner or something like that. Then they'll charge you standard rates. You can call room service 24 hours a day too. The service is second to none, generally speaking.

    Generally the only food you have to pay for on cruises is at the "premium" restaurants the newer ships have onboard.

    Right, and even then you'll still have filet mignon, lobster and a plethora of other excellent choices for your standard dinner courses, of which you can order seconds.

    Your best bet is to just throw it in your luggage. Maybe every 1/100 bags gets searched that way. Its pretty random. So you have a pretty good shot at making it like that. Wrap it up pretty good though because they arent really so gentle with those bags. They stack a ton of bags on top of each other in a huge crate to get them on the ship. Do not try to put it in any of your carry on bags. All those go through a scanner and get looked at.

    Surprising. I've been on about 15 Carnival cruises and I've never gotten snagged, nor has anyone in our groups. We've been pretty blatant about it too (handles in luggage, cases of beer with nothing else in gym bags, etc). Carnival is generally the most lenient.

    Must be a fun job to be the guy checking bags and seeing every other suitcase packed with a 3-month supply of Scope for a 4 day cruise.

    Some cruise lines let you bring one bottle of wine on with you... if so, buy some cheap shitty wine, uncork it and fill it up with liquor of choice, then just cork it back. Easy way to sneak a lot on.
