For P&O Australia, Princess and Holland America, you can take soft drink on board.

We normally just take 2-3 bottles of soft drink and we never had a problem and even last year at Christmas on the Pacific Sun, I took a can of soft drink on board and did not have a problem.

It was a policy they introduced this year - last year it was fine.

Some may still get things onboard now as enforcement varies, but it's then a risk you take.

When I said last year I meant earlier this year, I suppose it depends on who is checking
