Royal Caribbean has re-instated their corkage fee for wine that passengers bring with them from home onto one of their cruise ships.
The cruise line now has the following listed in the Q&A section on their website when the question “Does Royal Caribbean charge a corkage fee?” is asked.
Yes. Guests who consume their personal wine and champagne in public areas, will incur a $15 corkage fee per bottle. Guests wishing to bring personal wine and champagne onboard may do so only on boarding day, limited to two (2) 750 ml bottles per stateroom. No beer or hard liquor may be brought onboard for consumption.
Additional bottles of wine beyond two (2) bottles that are brought onboard or any alcoholic beverages purchased in ports of call or from onboard shops during the cruise vacation will be stored onboard and delivered to guest staterooms on the last day of the sailing.
This is the first time that Royal Caribbean has charged a corkage fee in nearly three years.
