IMO it's not so much the money as it is the morons that abuse the liquor then "fall" overboard and then sue the cruiseline.
We used to always go to the duty free shop on the first day and purchase a bottle of vodka and rum for our before dinner drinks. They stopped letting you do that right after the payout to that Smith person who's husband was "lost" as sea during their honeymoon.
Last time we used them for ourselves we had a bottle of Jack, Vodka, and a Limon and when we arrived it was waiting for us and not 1.75ml but the large bottles. The good thing is they are cheaper than the ship and you can order whatever you want, they are great and tell Shelly, Rob back in Missouri said hello!
Sorry meant to say it was NOT the .750ml, but it WAS the 1.75. Either way you can't go wrong with them and I had someone say to me it cost more than the local store.......... well yes, you are paying for a service but it is well worth it as opposed to what you could pay the cruise line. Have fun!!!
Yes she said they can get the 750ml of vodka for $28.30 US (taxes and fees included). and you're right, it's still way cheaper than buying from the boat. We'll still spend money on booze during the day but at night we'll have our liquor for our room.
Yea for Cruise Addicts! I called customer service yesterday to pre-order scotch and was told "NO"--very rudely "NO" This is our first cruise on RCCL and she did not give me a warm welcoming feeling. So, I will be contacting Shelly this morning. Thanks!
