I have to ask if anyone splits provisioning because of wildly different pricing on this and that. As one post said, Riteway has crummy pricing on beer etc. Looking at Caribbean Cellers and Tico I noticed same thing...each has some items quite a bit higher than the other one. Also...the variety of brands can be quite different. CC will be missing something I'm looking for...Tico same.

So does anyone end up with deliveries from 3-4 places? Or just Rite Way and CC or Tico?




We ended up with all 3 on our last trip. Originally we ordered from CC and Riteway . CC emailed me that a few things were not in stock so I placed an additional order with Tico's. Had a good experience with all.

We've used Riteway and CC together on trips. But mostly food from Riteway - liquor, water etc. from CC.
As for mixers and juices, other than a few bottles of Ting, we don't use much of the other stuff except for gallons and gallons of water. Juices only come in large cans which is a pain in the fridge with no way to close them up. Clean, straightforward liquor & wine on the boat - painkillers we order from the beach bars :-)
Since we're staying in CGB pre charter we will definitely check out Columbus Sunset.

You can buy juice in small cans, we usually get a case of little tomato juice cans and a case of small orange juice cans.

Good post...very helpful. Starting to dive into this for our trip. Where do you get your mixers (Ting, Club Soda, ginger ale) from? Ticos/CC or Riteway. Also, do you buy in cans by case or do you buy it in bottles? Cannot recall from prior trips...our friends handled that part. Thanks.

In the last six trips I've gotten everything I needed by provisioning through Riteway and Caribbean Cellars, with odds and ends added by a quick trip to the West End Marketplace before shoving off the dock.

Brilliant idea Colleen!
If I recall, Club Soda came in small bottles and Ting was bottled as well. We've use Caribbean Cellars for all our liquid provisioning but they've been less than stellar on execution.

Does Tico not carry Carib?

The cost compared is due to Tico being the importer for Bud as Caribbean Cellars is the importer of Carib and RTW import Heineken. This also goes for spirits and different wines so if you have the time go shopping yourself Tico & RTW are right next to each other.
