Celebrity Cruises Alcohol Policy

Celebrity drinks

Are You Legal?

Celebrity Cruises' minimum drinking age for all alcoholic beverages is 21 years of age. However, on cruises departing from countries where legal drinking ages are younger than 21 (typically European and South American countries), a parent sailing with a child between the ages of 18 and 20 may sign a waiver allowing for the consumption of alcoholic beverages.

Bringing Booze Onboard

Bringing liquor onboard at embarkation: No alcoholic beverages may be brought onboard for consumption, with the exception of wine. If you're caught with liquor, it'll be confiscated and returned at the end of the cruise.

Bringing wine or Champagne onboard: Passengers may bring two bottles of wine per stateroom, but only at embarkation. When consumed in any shipboard restaurant, bar or dining venue, there's a corkage fee of $25 per bottle. Wine purchased from the selection of bon voyage gifts is not subject to a corkage fee.

Purchasing liquor in port: Alcoholic beverages purchased ashore will be held until the end of the cruise.

Purchasing liquor in ships' duty-free shop: Onboard purchases from the gift shop of any bottle of liquor will be held until the last night of the cruise.
