(1:30 p.m EDT) — Passengers on Carnival cruises will now be able to bring nonalcoholic beverages onboard with them in ports of call, as long as the beverages are in cans or cartons of 12 ounces or less. A limit of 12 cans or cartons per person will also be enforced.
Previously, passengers were allowed to carry beverages onto the ship in homeports only.
This change does not affect the line’s ban on bottled nonalcoholic beverages, which was put in place in July in an effort to crack down on alcohol smuggling.
It also does not affect the line’s alcohol policy, which states that alcohol purchased in port will be held for the duration of the sailing and returned to passengers on the morning of debarkation.
