Default Re: PLEASE tell me how to pack soda, beer, wine in checked b

I bought some wine in Uruguay during a cruise earlier this year. Had no trouble getting it on board the Marco Polo, but when my luggage was delivered to the hotel in Buenos Aires after debarkation, one of the bottles had broken. This despite the fact that it was packed in a sturdy cardboard carrying case and well-cushioned inside the bag. Fortunately, the hotel was sympathetic and did a first rate job cleaning all the affected clothing. From now on I won't be transporting any bottles except as carry-on, however. Not worth the hassle...
