Default Champagne in St. Thomas or St. Martin

Does anyone know if you can purchase french champagne ie Moet or Dom for a significant savings on either of these islands?

Yes, you can. Downtown on St Thomas has liquor stores with good prices. Just remember that there is a limit on how much you can bring back.

The ships dock on the Dutch side, The French side will have bubbly, the savings in Minumum, plus the security may collect it when boarding.

Default Bubbly

I would imagine a market in St. Martin would have the best pricing for French Bubbly, hense, French Provence.
All other Countries selling French Bubbly would have a import tax imposed.
You may not be able to take the bubbly back to your stateroom, the cruise lines are cracking down on the booze purchased at the Ports.
If your flying, remember the weight restrictions.

Cheers
Danny
