You will only be charged the duty fee and that will only be a couple of dollars. If you get a customs agent that is in a good mood he probably won't charge you for one extra bottle.

Take care,

On our last cruise on the Conquest, I brought back 1 bottle of rum, 1-bottle of Tequila,and 1 other bottle for my son. ( wife picked it out ) No problems at all. May have been my lucky day, but nothing was said.

Best wishes and happy sailing;

The duty is about 15% which is more than offset by the price.Do9 your homework and price at home and get yourself a high end bottle and savor the difference in taste and smoothness.If you want my opinion on best to buy let me know.

If you bring back more than your duty-free allotment, you must declare it on the immigration form you will receive and you must pay the duty(tax). Its a law.

If you are a Texas resident you can only bring home 1 bottle of alcohol. They told us on the Conquest if you are a non-resident of Texas you could bring 5 bottles of alcohol off the ship with no penalty.
