Default Crown Princess Store

Anyone happen to know if Crown Princess has good cigarette collection and if they give them to you at end of cruise or at purchase?

The brands are not all that extensive and if you want light or ulta lights or 100's, the pickings are slim.

They would not give us a carton to take back to the cabin. It is held until the night before disembarkation.

You can buy single packs at the bars.

Shark,

Not what I wanted to hear but I appreciate the quick reply. Just a plain marlboro guy which usually most ships carry.

Normally not a big issue with me but I didn't secure my normal supply this month figuring I would be making some purchases during cruise, ship or shore. So board with a limited supply. Were they at least semi reasonable by pack at bars? Remember compared to New York, the dysfunctional state, almost any price is reasonable I guess. Can be as high as $8 a pack in city I am told.

( Note to fanatic anti smoke crowd. Before commenting remember NY is now going after fat people who cost helath care system more than smokers they say. NY City proposing laws banning certain cooking fats and oils. Zones for fast food restaurants, and various menu laws. So before you jump, remember, you may be outside in the cold sneaking your twinky next to those die hard smokers yet. )

Plenty of Marlboro's and the price is right. IIRC $23/carton.

I really don't remember what the single packs were at the bar as I brought enough for the cruises.

Shark,

Thanks again. Picked up enough today to keep me from going into violent rage until I can get some during trip.

Sailing tomorrow - call me a Happy Camper..

To bad you're not going on the Crown after she relocates to San Juan. I picked up Winston Lights for 8.00 a carton in St. Marteen, and Marlboro for 9:50. Needless to say, I broght back a few cartons.
