Should I wait and buy it on one of the shore stops or Duty free store before we leave all so smokes Canadian brand. Is there any thing thing that is most forgoten at home which would help out make the trip more fun or easy! Thanks for your input!

Marcella - buy your cigarettes at home before you leave Canada. They only sell American brands on the ship. I noticed a note on the Canada Customs form that we had to fill out when we returned from Alaska to Canada that said that duty would be charged on any cigarettes brought into Canada that did not have the "duty paid" label on them. Cigarettes aren't that much cheaper anymore in the Duty Free shops at the Canadian airports. The price now includes a Duty tax.

You can buy liquour in the shops, pay a small surchage and take it to your cabin, or you can buy it at one of the ports.

Be sure to take your favorite hair conditioner, as HAL provides none. They provide "conditioning shampoo," but unless you have very short hair, it's not sufficient.
