Set Sail Safely Act to Get Cruise Industry Moving Again

Florida Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio have introduced a new Set Sail Safely Act to get the cruise industry moving again.

Carnival Cruise Line has decided to stop passengers from carrying on bottled beverages across the entire fleet starting in July.

On June 9th the cruise line revealed that passengers will no longer be able to take bottled water, soda or any other bottled drink on board any cruise ship. The new ban will begin from July 9th and one of the reasons it has been implemented is to stop passengers from sneaking on alcoholic drinks.

Carnival are hoping that the ban will help control any bad behaviour from those who are smuggling alcohol on board. Online many videos and guides can be found that give people tips on how to get smuggle alcohol on board. The cruise line has also stated that checking passengers drinks on embarkation day can cause longer lines at the terminal so the new policy will hopefully reduce the waiting time to board the ship.

Passengers over 21 years old will still be able to take one bottle of wine. Passengers can take cans or cartons of soda and water in packages no more than 12. Anyone already booked on a Carnival cruise will have to abide to the new policy and if any alcoholic beverages are found on embarkation day Carnival won’t give it back at the end of the voyage. Passengers will be able to pre-purchase a pack of 12 bottles for $2.99 on the cruise lines site but if not pre-purchased it will cost $4.99.

Carnival have also stated that the new policy is not intended to make more money but to simply make the cruise more secure and stop passengers from causing problems when drinking smuggled alcohol.
