I would like to compare what you pay for a one liter bottle of JW Black at home VS what you pay from the Bon Voyage dpt. JW Black from the BV dpt according to Dr. Plunger is $55 (which falls in line with what I have paid). So my question to you is how much do you pay for a one liter bottle of JW Black?

You stated more then once that the cost of the BV department was a 100% what you would pay at the liquor store. Was this an error or do you have a wonderfully cheap liquor store where you live. I ask because by saying that Bon Voyage department is 100% more expensive you have made people believe that they will pay twice as much if they order through the Bon Voyage Department. It is possible a math error occurred and that is what I'm trying to determine.
Black label was something like $75 or $85 from BV last time I called.

Black label at Total Wine is $42.99/liter and $51.99/1.75 liter... Hmm... guess I'll stop shopping at Costco.

Total wine sells 1 liter Jack Black for $23.99 or less than half of $55.

If you do b2b cruises, buy the liquor for the second cruise from the duty free store on the first cruise. Also, if you purchase from the DF store on the last night (sometimes last afternoon) of the cruise they let you take with, so they don't have to deliver it to your cabin.

I show you my experiences and leave it up to you to decide if it is for you or not.
