I've read that you can purchase bottles of liquor on board to consume in the room. How can we get a list of exactly what kinds are available? My husband likes certain types of Vodka. All that I can find on the Princess site is a very small list of smaller size (375 ml) bottles of only about 3 kinds of liquor and a few cans of soda that comes in a package. I have read posts that say that 1 liter bottles of many kinds are available. When and how is this actually preordered?
We went thru the trouble of sneaking booze on board and found that we could have gotten the same for in room consumption at about the same price as the liquor stores. It won't be as cheap as the duty free stores but it is still not worth the trouble of carrying on. I can't help with the brand of vodka. Call Princess direct, is worth the try.
Really? I thought you could only take them off the ship later, not to your room. Funny how all this time we've been smuggling booze in our luggage. Geez! Are you sure??? Anyone? I think I will call Princess to find out. Maybe this is just a Princess thing?
I dunno, this is different from what is stated above...

375 ml - that's larger than an "airline bottle" and smaller by half a "regular bottle". The unit of measure that replaced the "fifth" in our bars and liquor stores and that is commonly seen is 75 ml. You can get 12 "shots" from a 375 ml bottle. So, those prices are higher than a liquor store but not outrageous AND you can "do it yourself", in your cabin whenever you wish without the 15% fee.
Ok, just did the math. The 375ml bottle will yield 12+ "shots". Now, if you deduct the cost of the mix (at 1.58 each since you can buy a six-pack for $9.50) and then divide the liquor $12.68 by 12 = $1.02 per "shot". But, to make it easy, lets say that the mix yields 2 drinks per container. That's equal to six drinks. Divide $17.00 by 6 and that equals $2.83 per drink (with a double "shot" of liquor in each drink). That's VERY reasonable!
Like I said in a different post - RCI executives, please take note!
Go Chuck! Can you still do long math like that after a couple of shots?
7th: To post a picture: In the Reply or Post Screen there is an icon, click it, it's quite easy, except I think the picture needs to be on a another web site with a URL link, not sure if you can download onto this site directly. So if you have the pic on a website, simply right click on the picture and then click on properties, then copy from that by highlighting or cursoring over the address and right click again and hit copy.
