As of July 15, passengers on Norwegian Cruise Line (866/234-7350, www.ncl.com) ships are not allowed to take any beverages on board (including water) other than sealed bottles of wine (no boxed wine). Norwegian said it had been taking too long to inspect each beverage during boarding, causing delays.  

Wine must be checked upon boarding and will be held until it's consumed on board or until disembarkation at the final port. There is a corkage fee of $15 for a 750ml bottle or $30, 1,500ml.
