Thanks for the heads up on the leaky rum runners PelicanPirate. Since they will be packed in clothing, I was a little worried about a possible leak.

We don't really drink wine, and when Wifey does, it's the cheap stuff (Riesling Piesporter something), so bringing wine on and paying a $25.00 corkage fee(plus 18% gratuity) won't work for a $10.00 bottle of wine. She can just buy a glass or two in the dining room, or buy a bottle the first night, and they keep it corked for her throughout the cruise, and have it on the table when we come in the next evening.
We were looking more at trying to get rum, etc on board.

There are some new wines you can pour in old bottles. Some of the wines ta st e like bourbon, scotch, rum, etc.

The corkage fees only apply to bringing the wine bottle to the dining room. You can drink your wine free in your room or walking around.

So if you have time in cruise port go to publix, buy cheap wine, drink or dump it and fill with new wine.

Hard part is buying the seals for 5 dollars.

Onboard carnival a bottle of booze to you room is 90 bucks. Most mixed drinks approach 10 bucks.

If you mean buy the wine ashore while in port, all alcohol is confiscated when you return to the ship, and they give it back to you on the last night of the Cruise.

They can't confiscate if it is in your tummy.

My last cruise in Nov.2016 Royal Caribbean. Most drinks were $13. Which..... made the drink package look more plausible. I didn't buy the first day so only had to pay for the 6 days forward, for both in the room. $824 for the booze package. BUT..... I did find Don Julio 1942 was included ($100 a bottle) So I did have some smooth margaritas. As did the retired banker from MIA that was sitting next to me.

Got back Sunday from our cruise. We used the Rum Runner Cruise Flask, and was able to get plenty of coconut rum onto the ship. Costs $8.00 on Ebay, and held 2 bottles (1 in each flask). Comes with a funnel, and are heavy duty clear plastic baggie type container with a leak-proof screw on cap. Fill it up, and put it in your luggage tucked inside clothing. X-Rays can't detect them.
Our next Cruise came with the Ultimate Beverage Package, so we won't need them then, but they do work as advertised.

We were on NCL. Margaritas were $14.00 in the plastic cup, drink of the day was $9.00. We had the soda package, so not sure how much the sodas cost. They would not let us pay the difference on our soda package to upgrade to the Ultimate Bev Package.
