No More Bringing Bottled Water on Carnival Cruises

UPDATE: Read our full post on Cruise Line Policies regarding bringing bottled water, soda and wine onboard.

Carnival CruisesCarnival announced today that effective July 9, 2015, passengers will no longer be allowed to carry on their own plastic-bottled beverages.

Why? Too many passengers are trying to smuggle alcohol on board, disguising it as bottled water or soda.

According to USA Today, bottled water will still be available at a discounted price – a 12 pack for 2.99 if purchased before sailing and $4.99 onboard.

Beverages in unopened cans or cartons, such as juice boxes, will still be permitted (maximum 12), but must be carried on and not as part of checked luggage.

Passengers may still carry on a single bottle of wine or champagne.
