Taking alcohol home

How are alcohol purchases handled when you buy on board and take the bottles home? What is the limit? Do you pack them? They cannot be carried on a plane because of the size, correct? What about customs?

They are delivered to you last night to take off the ship. USA border control / customs limits how much you take off.

Details of current allowances are in a booklet guide to your cruise in your room.

In our experience, when they are delivered to your stateroom they are wrapped in bubble wrap. We put them in the center of our suitcase, surrounded by clothing, and have never had one break on a flight.

Actually there is no limit on quantity. However, There IS a duty-free limit. If you want to bring more home, you might have to pay the duty (tax).

However on a past Cruise I lucked out and didn't even have to pay that. I presented my purchase declaration with the onboard customs agent. He reviewed it and said, "This isn't even 20 bucks!" He then signed off on my slip without me having to pay a dime.

Customs agents are allowed to waive the fee if it (the fee) is going to be less than $20 because the paperwork makes it uneconomical for them to process it.

We have always declared it correctly and the tax has always been waived. I have heard that customs only takes checks and cash.
