Default ship shops sell cheap liquor on Bermuda cruises???

Wondering if the ship shops sell liquor cheap on Bermuda cruises as they do on Caribbean cruises? I know everything is expensive in Bermuda so this is why I ask.

The shops onboard have nothing to do with the ports of call. The reason that booze is so cheap onboard is that it is duty free, ie NO TAX.

Traditionally, the government has raped it's citizens when it comes to taxing alcohol, we even had an armed uprising over a tax on alcohol very early in US history, and the president had to call out troops to quell it. It was called " The Whiskey Rebellion". The tax on booze is so high, that here in NY I pay almost $30.00 for a 1 litre bottle of Johnnie Walker Red, onboard the ship I bought 2 for $26.50.
