Long noteworthy for its liberal policies regarding alcoholic beverages brought aboard by guests, Disney Cruise Line has released a new policy, effective September 30, 2015, that brings the line more in line with typical cruise industry practices. Under the new policy, guests are limited to carrying aboard 2 unopened bottles of wine or champagne (750 ml max.), or up to 6 beers (12 oz. max.). This can be done in each port of call as well as at embarkation, so cruisers can replenish. Liquors and spirits, including powdered alcohol (there is such a thing?) are prohibited and will be stored until the end of the cruise by the cruise line. Carry-on alcoholic beverages may not be consumed in any lounge or public area, and the corkage fee in dining rooms has increased to $25. As always, beverages are not allowed in checked luggage.
