Will post this on Italy, France,Spain & Other Boards- hopefully someone has an answer.
Our cruise will visit Spain, France,Italy, Dubrovnik & Kotor. I would usually have VAT processed @ airport (BCN) however with so many ports do I/should I VAT processed @ cruise terminals? I know that certain dept stores have VAT desks within them. Are there VAT refund desks @ the cruise terminals?
Port are BCN
Villefranche
Livorno
Naples
Civitavecchia
Venice
Dubrovnik
Kotor

Thanks
Carole

I would just wait until the airport. All you need is a stamp on the forms.

HOWEVER....... make sure you give yourself plenty of time to do so at the Barcelona airport. We got to the airport really early and then stood in line to check in for over 2 hours...... then security and to our gate in hurry! Meaning no stamp on our VAT forms. :eek: Oh well, lesson learned.
