Be sailed allow one 750 Ml bottle per,person.

Glad they worked. Ours did save the little leak at the cap. Not sure. Shaving kit still smells like Canadian club.

I was a little worried my underwear might end up smelling like Coconut Rum. I guess that's better than what they usually smell like.

After working at the TSA I can assure you that the scanners WILL see your liquids weather in a bottle or bag! If they let you slide that is possible but I PROMISE you it can be seen!!!

Yes, I understand. There is no problem with packing the liquid for check luggage when flying, so I don't think the Agents would say anything, it's only the liquids in the carry-on TSA would not allow (over 3 oz). However, the screening Agents at the Cruise Terminal haven't found it yet by x-ray, they are mostly concerned with people sneaking alcohol on board. If they open the suitcase, they will be able to find it.

Every cruise ship I have been on is awash with alcohol. Is saving 20 bucks on a vacation that important?

Depends on how long you're onboard. When you're spending $10 for a mixed drink, versus you could probably make 10 drinks out of a $30 bottle of liquor, it adds up.

Well, you top shelf people may spend $30 on a bottle of liquor....

We were on Empress of the Seas Nov 4-10 - were in Havana November 6-7 (stayed overnight on ship). (and yes, what the heck ever happened to my trip report writing)

Empress let us bring bottles of rum obtained in Havana back on board to our cabins. (Maybe they did not want to have to store the many hundreds of bottles of rum that may have been bought.)

The Captain became the new beloved hero of most of the passengers for this decision.

You could get a good bottle of rum for about $8 in Havana - or other liquor.

I wonder how much the sales of alcoholic drinks dropped after being in Havana - I know of a good number of lost sales from personal observation. But, who knows, maybe there was no significant drop in sales overall.

BTW: we had a great cruise on Empress - small ship but great crew. We very much enjoyed seeing Havana. I knew that we would see old American cars, but I was amazed at how many there are and how great they looked. All of the Cubans we met were very friendly and welcoming - and all seemed to have at least one relative living in the USA - if not a big branch of their family tree.

As we participated in the hundreds of cruise ship passengers swarming ashore and spending lots of money - including with tips and gifts - and the way that the Cuban people seemed so welcoming - the idea that the overall embargo continues really seemed kind of silly.

$20 won't even buy two drinks. They are usually $10-12$ plus 18% gratuity. The ultimate beverage package is around $700 for a 7 day cruise, plus they charge an 18% gratuity on top of that. You are quite correct that the Ships have plenty, that is how they make their money.
