Default Cigarettes/Western Carribean

Help,

We, hopefully will be going on the Coral Princess on January 3rd to the Western Carribean. We know the best place for shopping cigarettes in St Marten..but does anyone know where the best place is for cigarettes on Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman, Limon or Cozumel? Please help

You do realize that you can only bring in 1 carton per person right? I assume you are checking pricing by listing all your [ports. I have been to all those ports, mostly within the last 13 months and found the prices aboard ship to be better. The marlboroughs were for 2 cartons $32 on NCL this year and about the same on Carnival last. Martinique was the only place I found cigarettes cheaper than aboard ship and that was in 99.

Thank you for your response. In the Eastern Carribean(St Marten)we last year were able to purchase Salem Light 100's for $10.25 per carton....we did purchase quite a few. The current price in Chicago for the same brand is $44.00 per carton.

Thank you again,

PMack

Are you willing to share the spot to buy in St. Maarten? I have found it difficult to find Salem on many cruises I have been on.

marvholly,

Actually, you can bring in as much as you want -- so long as it's for personal use (and too large of a quantity may raise questions about this). The catch is that you have to pay duty on all tobacco in excess of one carton of cigarettes.

We found that St. Martin was the least expensive for cigarettes and the Ship was the next least expensive.
