Any passengers sailing with Disney Cruise Line as of September 30, 2015 will experience changes to the cruise line’s onboard alcohol policy. The current policy does not limit the amount of alcohol a guest can bring on board, it merely limits how they bring it on the ship (in a carry-on bag of a certain size) and, in the case of wine and champagne, they are charged a $20 corking fee (per bottle).
The new policy is as follows:
Effective for cruises embarking on or after September 30, 2015, Disney Cruise Line Guests 21 years and older may bring a maximum of 2 bottles of unopened wine or champagne (no larger than 750 ml) or 6 beers (no larger than 12 ounces) on board at the beginning of the voyage and at each port-of-call.
Guests wishing to consume wine or champagne that they have brought on board in one of the dining rooms will be charged a corking fee of $25.00 per bottle. Please note:
- These beverages must be packed in carry-on (not checked) bags or luggage.
- Any alcohol packed in checked luggage will be removed and stored until the end of the cruise.
- Any wine or champagne in excess of 2 bottles or beer in excess of 6 beers will be stored until the end of the cruise.
- Bringing liquors and spirits (including powdered alcohol) on board is prohibited. These items will be stored until the end of the cruise.
- Guest MUST retrieve any stored alcohol at the end of the cruise. Items not retrieved will be destroyed, and no compensation will be offered.
- Alcohol brought on board may not be consumed in any lounge or public area.
