Default cost of cigarettses on NCL Jade in the med

Does anyone have an idea of the costs of cigarettes in the gift shop on the Jade?

Hi DSW, not an exact reply, but hopefully some food for thought ...

Most lines seem to run a fluid pricing policy when operating over this way and the price is derermined by whether your cruise calls into a duty free location such as Gibraltar. If they do, then the prices are often reduced to remain competitive with that port, if they don't then the prices rise again.

As an example, albeit with a different line, our Med cruise this year had a carton of cigarettes at about 22.00, but less than 3 months later, our Baltic cruise had the same cigarettes at 35.00. The only difference was that the Med cruise called into Gibraltar where the prices were about 20.00

If you are calling there, then I would hold off making any purchases on board until you've compared the land prices. Then if the ship is better, buy them on board.

Thanks! This is higher than in the states. I just didn't want to bring that many for our 30 day vacation
