Royal's Liberty OTS sails out of Galveston
Carnival Liberty sails out of Port Canaveral

Carnival Freedom does indeed sail from Galveston.

True, but it's fun to watch the new cruisers chug those shots.

Please do tell what that clue is. Are you saying they don't serve alcohol in Texas? Are you saying they don't give it away in Texas? Are you saying the fun shops won't be open this evening because Texas is so far from international waters? Please clue me in.

Nope, it's not that. They have had it every cruise the last few years, and I go a lot. They don't have it this time. I wonder if it's happened elsewhere, if they typically have it.
They usually have a lot of samples, and then someone to take your order for purchase, with a first night discount.

Liquor tastings are not to make pax happy, but to sell liquor they have.

We were on RCCL in January out of Galveston and we got the liquor testing. Can't remember what night on the 5 night. But we had some coffee liquore that was strong. We're pretty light weight drinkers so that may have been why. One taste gave us a little buzz. #cheapthrill

You do realize, don’t you, that the distance from Galveston to “international waters” is exactly the same as ANY other port?
