$17.50 + $2.63 tip = $20.13. I should know, I had 18 of them on my b2b Freedom cruise in Jan. Now, if you're in port in Florida or Florida waters, you will have to pay the sales tax. When we went back to Florida for turn around day, I ordered a bucket about 5 pm and told the waiter, K-man, I didn't want to pay the taxes, so he punched it in once we were out of Florida waters.

Is there anything better than cruising? I doubt it

Thanks. We seem to go thru the buckets too. We are leaving from Ft. Lauderdale...so you are saying wait and there will be no sales tax?? The cheaper the better. We are going on the 8 day cruise so one more day of buckets.

try not to drink while in port; you will get charged with taxes until you hit international waters... carry on a 12 pack LOL
