To smuggle booze on board a cruise or not to smuggle? That is the question!

When you’ve spent a fortune on your holiday, are you really bothered about the cost of the drinks on board? Would you take your booze with you…..even if the company threatened to take it away or worse kick you off the ship? That was the question posed to members of the www.cruises.co.uk following the release of its report outlining the policies and rules of bringing alcohol onboard imposed by the major cruise lines.
Over the last 10 years, the cruise lines have increased the cost of alcoholic drinks on the ships, much to the frustration of regular cruisers who use the www.cruises.co.uk web site. It seems more guests are risking taking their own alcohol on board, although with tighter security restrictions in place, for general safety, it’s easy for cruise staff to see what passengers are carrying.
So what’s a cruise passenger to do when the cost of booze continues to rise and cruise lines are imposing tougher restrictions?
