Default can you bring soda?

I know on certain cruise lines they allow you to bring a 12 pack each of soda. Is this true also with Celebrity? Thanks

Celebrity website is silent on the issue of bringing water and soft drinks aboard, and no one has reported any limitations on the number of cans/bottles of same allowed on board. Maybe some lines limit you to a twelve-pack, but Celebrity does not.

We've brought two twelve-packs each, no problem. What we didn't finish, we left for the cabin steward. Have the cabin steward empty the honor bar fridge so you can keep your soda cool. Four twelve-packs won't fit, but we stored the excess under the bed with the luggage until they were needed. You can even put a luggage tag on your soda, but some have reported a missing can when they were delivered to the cabin.

Good news along with their policy of allowing a couple bottles of wine

If I don't fly I bring bottles of soda

I'm afraid if I bring cans I will be charged a pull tab fee in the dining room

I purchase canned soda while in port, purchased soda price less than canned soda in cabin fridge. Canned soda is for use in cabin only.

Is it OK to just slap a luggage tag on a pack of soda or do I need to pack it in a bag? Getting ready for tomorrow! Thanks for your help.

I think we are going to pack ours in a Lands End canvas tote that is fairly large and put the soda and water in there so it all stays together. I got the packages but I want it for in the cabin.

We did this before our 14 night Caribbean cruise out of Florida last March. We bought a case of bottled water and two 12 packs of canned soda water. I taped the 12 packs together to make them like one case. I put a luggage tag on the water and another on the soda and left them with the porter. No problem. I've read a lot of reports on these boards from others who have done the same and I saw other cases of water or soda amongst the luggage checked at the pier as well.

I leave mine out in the open, to prevent being thrown around. I always use either strapping tape or duct tape around the box to reinforce the boxes. Same with the flat(s) of water.

I only consume these items in the cabin or ashore.

I usually take one 20 oz bottle per day. I prefer bottles for many reasons, on of which is I can drink what I want out of it without the rest going flat. I pack them in a carry on (what we old guys used to call a Pan Am bag) so they don't go through baggage handling and get busted. Learned that the hard way. Once on board, I empty the soda and have a bag for dirty laundry.

Happy Sails to You

Just returned from the Millennium. My sister brought caffeine free diet Coke on board as she was afraid she would not find any. She carried her can drink everywhere - restaurants, theater, etc. Never a problem. Just an fyi - Celebrity is now serving cafeine free diet Coke and Coke Zero - for those of you who can't live without these.

Where are you flying from? In Canada we are not allowed to carry liquids of any sort onboard, other than toiletries in 4 oz bottles.

The poster who referred to using a PanAm bag meant a carry-on bag taken on the ship, not on a plane.

Default Taking soda on board

We just returned from a Celebrity cruise & took 6 litres of bottled water with us, no trouble.
