Some thoughts:

1) Go online and become an Ordained Minister, then claim that all those bottles of Red are "Sacramental Wine"
2) Camelbak
3) Store the booze safely inside of you - less spillage that way.

No judgment here on the need to drink on a cruise ship. I've been on two cruises, and both required massive amounts of alcohol just to be tolerable - can't handle being confined to a floating Vegas Hotel for 7 days, water slides, climbing walls and swimming pool notwithstanding.

Depends. There is a point of diminishing returns when it will, for all intents and purposes, spill.

You could wear the Beer Belly and tell people that you're 5 months in. They might give you the stink-eye if they see you drinking after you've made that claim, though.

Yes, and I believe running a cruise ship aground next to a liquor store was it. There may also have been explosives and Sandra Bullock involved.

Youch. I'm not a fan of destination weddings.

You have to befriend a member of the cruise staff, and get them to supply drinks from the crew lounge. Most crew pay $1 for drinks. Officers (and some entertainers) pay 50¢ for drinks.

I've got something similar lined up. One of my buddy's dad is going, and he and his wife are easily persuaded to indulge in booze with the young bucks, and are quite well off. Hopefully he puts everything on his tab. On the other hand, if he discovers the fruits of this discussion, it could backfire as I am forced to pour him drinks from my stash...

The Listerine sounds like a good one. You could get a couple bottles of saline solution, empty them, fill with vodka or rum.

There are a lot of different techniques, you've got rum runners, empty Listerine/shampoo bottles, body flasks, the water/ice tea bottle pack method of filling one with alcohol, if they allow you to bring wine on you can dump the wine and fill it with hard liquor. All these techniques and more are found at: http://www.rockbottomcruises.com/alcohol_on_cruise.html
It even tells you how to pack them and what happens if you get caught.

Hope this helps.
