I've read that cruise ships in Norwegian territorial waters have to charge Norwegian prices for booze - gulp, hic & gulp again.

I've asked several cruise lines, but the replies are very waffly.
Does anyone have recent experience, please.
Makes us sound like alkies, but we do enjoy a drink or three on holiday.

We did a Disney cruise that had port days in Norway and the prices stayed the same the whole trip.

No, it’s not true. At least not on the 3 cruise lines I’ve been on in Norway.

I went to Norway in 2016 on a cruise and the prices were the same throughout the trip. My parents went last year and they didn’t mention that - in fact we both agreed it was cheaper to get back on the ship if you wanted to have a drink. I’m going again in May and am expecting the standard pricing for that cruise line.

Prices the same where ever.
Norway is fab but expensive so eat on the ship and get drunk when you come home. Some lines allow one bottle per cabin, we just bubble wrap a bottle for each suit case and buy soft drinks to add our own booze to
