I have searched to no avail. I remember seeing a price list of all the liquor for sale in the duty free gift shop, but now I can't seem to find that thread anywhere. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Carnival will match the price of any liquor you find in port.
Of course they will. It's good marketing. How many people bring back the necessary docs to prove the point? And personally I won't waste my time to save what I already have by buying it on shore.

Yes, I am matching it. Except I don't match the 750ml ... I only match the 1.75. AZ and NV are ALWAYS cheaper.
Dunno about St Thomas ... We've been there twice but I wasn't into cheaper prices back then...although I do remember Rum being dirt cheap as you said.
We now only cruise on the west coast since we don't like to fly so only have rememberable comparables with the Mexican Riviera. And in spite of our love of Carnival, their liquor prices aren't that good compared to what I stated above. In fact one guy at our last table from CA said he had a neighborhood liquor store that was better than Carnival's prices ... and I believed him since he drank a lot but didn't buy any onboard liquor.
