Does the Mercury have a duty free shop that sells wine? If so, is the selection very good and how are the prices? Can you buy a bottle of wine from the duty free store and take it into the dinning room? I understand there is a corkage fee. Or are your duty free store purchases held for you until the end of the cruise? We will be traveling on the Mercury in October departing from San Diego. Wondering if when we get to San Diego we should stock up on some good CA wines to bring on board with us. Thanks to all who respond.
We just got off Mercury, 17 days from Valparaiso. We had wine everynight
that we brought on board. When you are in San Diego stop at Trader Joe's
They have a great wine selection at very good prices. Take your wine on
board. The corkage is $6 if you don't finish the wine, the wine steward will
save it for the next night. We always give the wine steward something extra
at the end of the cruise.
You will love the ship.
