Can you buy Tortuga Rum Cakes in Cozumel, Roatan, Belize or Costa Maya? I realize they sell them on the ship but have read they can be "not too fresh" if you buy them on the ship. Plus I'd like to see more variety. We bought some in Grand Cayman before and they were delicious!

I've read that people thought they were fresher on the ships than in the shops in port.

I'm not a fan. In fact, last one I bought, I forgot about it and it sat in my pantry for about a year. When I noticed it, it still tasted fresh enough.

I am a fan of the Rum Cream!! Bought a bottle at the store in Nassau. Must check to see if I need to replenish.

I'd recommend Bealls Florida over Amazon. They frequently run additional 25% off specials making it way cheaper. http://www.beallsflorida.com

I saw them in abundance in Grand Cayman.

After we returned from our cruise I bought one off Amazon, free shipping.

After the holidays I saw alot of these on the shelves of TJ Maxx.

I don't remember the brand, but there is a shop in Belize that sells them and I liked them much better than Tortuga. They were so fresh and moist.

We just got off the Imagination & they were on sale on the ship. Most Florida airports have them for sale in the kiosks by the gates.

I can get them at my local grocery store here in OK. They are good but when this happened they kind of lost there appeal. The fun of seeing them when on vacation.

Go to thier website and sign up for emails. They quite often have email specials with percentages off or free shipping or free bags, etc.
