David, most cruise lines allow wine, as they have a corkage fee if you bring it into the restaurant for dinner. Many folks will purchase quality wines to take with them that may not be available onthe wine list of the ship. For this reason, they can have it chilled and served with dinner and pay a corkage fee (usually $10 or so) Spirits are a whole different animal. Most cruise lines (other than luxury) will not allow it on board. Hence, the many discussion on how to smeak it on.

Harry,
Great attitude! Have a wonderful trip! If you do discover a place to purchase wine near the port in LA - please share that info on your return.
Nancy

The best we found was the duty free in LAX, which was more expensive than the ship prices. When got on board, our travel agent had a bottle ther for us. She's great. When we got to Puerto Vallarta we found a little store in the dock side flea market (where every vendor is your "amigo" and will give you "the best price" on silver) that had reasonably priced wine. We got enough bottles to make it throughthe rest of the cruise.
