gosh we sound like a load of boozers!!!!
Nothing wrong with getting your priorities right! lol
I actually went into the terminal shops when we returned to Barbados after 1st week.
We arrived at the ship around 5pm (ish), we went to our cabin and faffed about waiting for luggage ect, before muster drill. But I would suggest if yoiu are desperate
drop your bits to cabin and nip to shop, I would think you could easily get off ship and go to shop and back in 15-20 mins. That is what I would do another time.
I got 1 litre gin and 1 litre bacardi at Gatwick for £20. (always the cheapest place for us). I think I am right in saying that 1 litrs of bacardi at cruise terminal was about $16.
I think the duty free price of the drinks on ship were fairly reasonable too.
