Royal Caribbean Makes Change to Wine and Champagne Policy

Starting today, Royal Caribbean has made a change to its policy concerning bringing wine and champagne on board.

Instead of being able to bring two bottles per stateroom, the new policy allows for just one 750 ml bottle per adult of drinking age.

The change will mostly impact those cruising solo, as they can now only bring one bottle instead of two. It also changes things for cabins with more than two adults, as they can now bring more than two bottles of wine or champagne.
