Can you take food onto a ship?

    I know you can't bring food off the ship once you get back to home port. But can you take food onto the ship when you embark? Specifically..........pork rinds. Yes, I know, that's a strange food to want to take. But I love them and they are a great snack to nibble on while partaking in a nice cold rum and coke! :lol I've been on 19 cruises, but never think about taking my favorite snack onboard until I'm already onboard........and then it's too late!

    We like to bring our favorite chips and salsa to have with our predinner/sailaway drinks on our balcony. I also bring 100 calorie packs to be able to have something handy on excursions (diabetic) and 'packaged' goods are allowed off the ship.

    Thanks! In that case, I'll definitely be packing a couple jumbo bags of pork rinds/skins!

    Hi, when I fly I carry my airline snacks like trial mix and packaged goodies. I save them on the ship and I carry them back with me to the airplane when I am flying home.

    I was once on a Hawaiian cruise and I noticed an old Asian man eating dried small fish as a snack at the buffet area...I could tell he had brought the snack from his home..... while his wife was eating an apple from the buffet. They were both enjoying their snacks totally.lol.

    I once heard of a lady who wanted to know if she could take small pudding cups on the cruise ship. She wanted to know if the cabin had a frigerator so she could store them.
    I guess some people must have their favorite snacks.

    I always have to carry my small bottles of cokes so I always have a bottle in my tote bag. I buy the cokes in ports.
    I have some strange allergies where I need to drink coke in order to stop the tickling in my throat when the alergies flare up. It is the liquid sugar in the coke that makes me feel better. Water doesn't work as well as coke.

    The ships have so many goodies that I feel that I am fine with what they have for snacks.
    I like the Caribbean cup cakes on the Carnival ships on Caribbean buffet days. They are sooooo good.

    I always bring snacks on board plus quite a bit of other stuff that I "sneak" on. (nothing illegal)

    We usually stop at the market in Barcelona and get a huge bag of licorice for my hubby to have on our transatlantics. I also bring some snacks onboard that I can only pick up in Europe - and I usually will finish a bag or two while on the cruise (have to remember to pick up even more bags this year :D).

    You can bring food onto most ships, most of the time. There might be a rare exception but I have not heard of one.

    I suppose you can, but I'm pretty sure they will have enough without your help.....

    Yes.........I know they will have more than enough food. But....they won't have my favorite snack....pork skin/rinds!! :lol

    Does the old saying, "Taking a baloney sandwich to a banquet," strike a chord?

    Some people bring pistachio's and the shells seem to magically fall off the balcony. You know who you are. :lol :lol
