Disney Cruise Line just announced updates to its alcohol beverage policy. These changes will go into effect on sailings beginning on or after September 30th, 2015:
- Each Guest (21 years and older) my bring two bottles of unopened wine or champagne (no larger than 750ml) or six beers (no larger than 12oz) onboard in carry-on luggage at the beginning of the voyage and at each port-of-call.
- All alcoholic beverages packed in checked luggage will be removed and stored until the completion of the cruise.
- Wine or champagne in excess of the two allowable bottlers or beer in excess of the six beers will be stored and Guests may retrieve them at the end of the voyage.
- All liquors and spirits (including powdered alcohol) are prohibited and will be stored until the completion of the cruise.
- Guests must retrieve any stored alcohol at the end of the cruise. Uncollected alcohol will be destroyed and no compensation will be offered.
- Alcohol brought onboard may not be consumed in any lounge or public area.
- Effective September 30th, 2015, the corkage fee charged to Guests who bring their own wine or champagne into one of the restaurants will be $25 per bottle.
If you are sailing on a Disney Cruise in the near future and have any questions on these new policies, please don’t hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I think it’s still great that Disney allows Guests to bring alcohol onboard to enjoy in your stateroom. Nothing better than a glass of wine on your verandah while enjoying the ocean breeze!!
