That is correct. You won't be fined but all the food will be confiscated. Because we are an island continent and we don't have a lot of the diseases that the older world has such as foot and mouth etc. we are not allowed to bring into our country any food substances from any other country.
Please obey our laws, and do not bring any sandwiches, cheese, meat, cakes, fruit etc from the ship. If not, it most embarrassing to be pulled up after a lovely dog (usually a beagle) has given the handler the notion that you have food on you.
We all go through it each time we return from an overseas trip so it is not just for tourists but for anyone returning home from overseas.
The next cruise is always the best!
