    Hello Everyone,

    We recently received our documents for our upcoming cruise aboard the Sea Princess.

    I notice that they are offering only liquor packages (375 ml bottles plus nuts) with very few selections (no Crown Royal)!!!

    Can we still order 1.5 litre bottles from room service?

    Cheers,
    Zip

    Hi Joanne,

    We are sooo happy that you will warm her up for us. We expect you to take charge.

    SAY hello TO Mark for us.

    Special attention must be paid to our room steward, please do not tire

    him or her out-but then again, they have two weeks to recover before we board. Make sure they are properly trained ie leave extra chocolates at nite, clean wine glasses in the cabin at all times.,and daily wash the balcony railing windows (both sides!!!).

    If you and Mark go over board in the ports and buy too much booze & bling blings and find yourselves above US Custom<s allowances. Just leave the loot for us with the cabin steward. After all, you are our new best buddies, so we will help you out.


    Each evening, as we sail into the sunset (while the Crown lasts) we will toast your health.

    Smooth sailings!

    Morris & Judy

    Just an FYI zip - I was on the Golden last month and it was $12.50 for the drink packages of .375 There were other lists in book of selections but I forget what they were. Sorry..

    Ive had the same question. How do we get the crown royal in the ship though?:S Maybe you can answer after your March cruise?

    U get it on in a double ziplock bag with bubble wrapped and placed in your checked luggage. One bottle will be fine. If it was a case then there might be an uproar. :grin Also the room service packages are cheaper by a small amount when purchased onboard versus thru the Princess site.

    We used to buy 1 Liter Beefeaters for $22 onboard At $12.50 for .375 liter that is $33 per liter. On top of that, the "gift" section on the Princess website only lists Gordons. I would never insult a guest at my house by servinf Gordons. Take the Crown Royal!

    Thanks for the tips on getting Crown on the ship. Crown, Weisers, or Canadian Club..it doesn't matter to my wife but as long as it is rye whisky she's happy...really happy...I've had tips including flushing out a listerine bottle and filling it with the good stuff. What a great website this is aye?

    Have you ever heard of these actually being removed from luggage? We took a plastic mickie (small bottle of booze) onto a Costa ship once and they did not do anything. I sense that one bottle will not even be questioned. You can't carry a plastic bottle of water onto a plane nowadays so I wonder how long before the same rules make the cruiseships. :)-D

    NEVER have had a problem with regards to Princess but there is ALWAYS a 1st. RCCL seems to be more of a stickler on this issue than Princess at the present time. =shrug I am sure one bottle would most likely NOT set off any alarms at all. :)

    375 ml bottles.

    Why oh Why do they do this?

    I know they want money in the tills so to speak, and all those 15% grats.

    But c'mon. People do like to have a tipple in their room an on the Balc if you have one.

    Couple of years ago on Princess we (as already said) were able to order a ltr bottle for $22.

    this didn't stop us buying from the bar. ust nice to have a drink while getting ready to go out (or in).

    They seem to be forcing people to bring on their own booze.

    Ehh I don't know.

    Anyways scanned Princess web site and can't find what is available.

    Anyone point me in the right direction with a link:)


    Thanks
