What are the average prices for, say a bottle of reasonable wine bought with dinner, and what for, say a glass of wine in the bar?
Can liquor be taken aboard from transit ports during the voyage?
Welcome to our board, we love to answer questions even if our answers are not always correct.
You are not supposed to bring any hard liquor on board, notcie I said supposed to. Whatever you do, don't try to get it through security in your carry on.
You can't buy it duty free on board unless your plan is to carry it off ship at the end of your cruise. both cigarettes and booze will be delivered to your cabin the last day of the cruise.
A bottle of basic wine will cost about $25 to $30 and a glass around $5.50 for the house brand.
As for taken aboard at ports, the same policy as buying it on board, it will be held for you.
Hope this helps a little.
