Default CIGARETTE SALE

My husband and I are leaving on the Star. 11/21/04, Can someone tell me, do they sell cartons of cigarettes on board. My husband, daughter and I had previously cruised on Carnival and my husband would by a 5 carton pack at the beginning of the cruise and then have a couple cartons left when we debarked. Then we went on Princess and as soon as the ship left port we went to get his cigarettes. When the sales person told me they didn't sell cigarettes, my heart stopped. I just knew this beautiful ship was not big enough to get away from him if he couldn't smoke. Fortunately, they sold single packs at the bars and the trip was saved. That was close and I don't want to repeat that again!!
Thanks for the help
Susan

If they can make $ NCL will sell it You can't buy cartons until the ship leaves port and the shops open. Have your husband bring enough to make it thru day one.

Yes, there is a great liquor and cigarette shop onboard the norwegian star. it is located right in the atrium on deck 7. thay have plenty of brands at only $19.95 for one carton or 2 for $38.

you can also buy as many as you like as long as you pay the relevent taxs leaving the ship. the first 2 are duty free, after that its only $2.80 per carton payable to customs.

i hope you love the ship....i do, i work on here.

Hi Russell,

Thanks for the information.

Has customs changed its policy on cigarettes again? Years ago you could pay the duty on any over the allowed. Then a year or two ago we were on a Carnival Ship (Elation I think) Mexico again. Customs had just changed its policy and anything over the limit was confiscated. They notified us the day before we disembarked. One lady had bought 75 cartons and the ship would not let her return them. She wasn't happy.

Where do you work on the ship? We'll have to look you up.

Thanks for the help.

Susan

I have not traveled on the Star (yet) but I noticed on the Sun, the brand selection was very limited.
