We took a water bottle with rum in our luggage. We purchased a few airline bottles in port of some interesting rums. We did buy several bottles and handed them over when getting back on the ship. They gave one bottle to us to hold. It was a bottle of Guavaberry Rum in a hand painted bottle we bought in St Maarten. They said it was considered a souviner! It was more of an issue getting ice!

All that being said they made out all right on our bar bill! We did not find the drinks to be anymore expensive than local places by us at home. So not being huge drinkers it all worked out fine.

One last observation. They asked at customs if we had purshased any cigars from Cuba but not if we purchased any Cuban rum. Good thing....
