I was able to put 2 bottles of Bailey's in my luggage and 1 bottle Amaretto and a 2 liter of Diet Coke. It got to my cabin with no problem. I felt great till I went to port in Martinique, bought Bailey's for $9.50, compared to WalMart's $19.90. So I bought a bottle, and boarded ship. Nothing was said, so I went and bought 2 bottles Godiva for $10 each, boarded again without so much as a look. Went back, bought 2 2liters Diet Coke, Johnny Walker Blue for $98, boarded again with no problem. Got home and sold the blue for $175 to a neighbor. So my liquor was free!

David, did you have to pay duty on the booze when you came into the States?

Sounds to me like another good reason to cruise on MSC. Were the wine prices on board still as cheap as they were in December?

No. I honestly listed all purchases made on all items I brought into the states on the immigration form. The immigration lady took my form and waved me through without so much as a look at the form. The liquor was in my suitcases, and not disturbed. The wife packed the sugar cane stalks from ?Martinique? though I told her not to, fearing they would then check all my bags more closely.

I went to the virgins and bought 4 cases of premium scotch and other liquors.....
Others watched as the customs inspector rather than arresting me charged me $16 a gallon duty RATHER THAN ARRESTING ME The insanity of duty free is that it gives no limit you can bring in. if you pay this simple fee..... on $65 bottles I bought for $12. I paid about 3 dollars tax.... for $16 a bottle..... a savings of 48 a bottle....... ANd at the airport paid to have itr shipped..... as extra baggage.
