Hi
I don't know where your sailing but I found Grand Cayman the cheapest for rum and also San Juan . I found the ship to be cheapest for Vodka but wait til last day to buy it goes on sale.

Best place that I have found in the eastern Caribbean is KMart in St. Thomas. Locally distilled rum was $3.29 per litre last year.

We like to buy liquers so we have found St Maarten to be the best. There is an electronics /Jewellry store on the main street there, and also a grocery type store that you pass if you walk fromt he pier to downtown. Both are cheap. Kahlua 8.99 litre , Baileys 9.99 and Grand Marnier $20. Now just for Comparison sake that makes the Kahlua cheaper than most places in Mexico and the Grand Marnier at the Duty free at the US / Canada border is $32 USD a bottle. Can someone tell me how they can call it a tax and duty free store when there is obviously a lot of tax/profit or duty on it?

Beer to buy and walk around with in a can, is 50 cents from most little stores in St Maarten(cold , obscure Dutch brands but good).

I did not price any other French or Dutch Liqour (except the Grand Marnier) but I would expect similar low pricing.

Yup defiantly K-mart.......has be K-mart.......need to go to K-mart! Just about a 15 min walk from the pier. Turn left on the main street. St. Martin is also a great place.

Right on the pier in St. Maarten there is a liquor store in the main building. I found the Mango Rum I was searching for and it was $5 cheaper per bottle than what it was when I spotted it in St. Thomas the next day. St. Maarten has some great deals on liquor as does the ship. Make sure to pick up a flyer from the onboard liquor store telling you what the prices are and then you can search for better deals on the islands.

I found that run in San Juan was an amazing deal. I got fifths of higher end Bacardi and liters of regular Bacardi for $4. Captaon Morgan and other flavored rum was even cheaper. This was in the dutyfree near where the ship docks.

St Thomas had good prices on a few other liquors, but didnt beat San Juan for rum...

Try Kam's liquor in St. Maarten. The prices were great. They will pack it up for you in a carrier and send it to the ship. Also the prices on tobacco there were amazing.
