Buying cigarettes on board

Recommended Posts

I am not a smoker so I am unfamiliar with how it works on board. My husband smokes and needs to know if he can buy cigarettes duty free on board the ship and take them with him immediately to smoke? I know we can only bring 1 packet per adult back into Australia but what about on the boat? Can anyone help please? Thanks.

Yes he can. From memory I think it was $100 for a carton.

If one of your ports is Vila or Luganville (Santo), duty free cigs there are $35 to $40. And unlike alcohol bought dutyfree which is taken off you and returned when you disembark, the cigs are yours to smoke straight away.

Wow, I've heard they are crazy cheap in Port Vila. $35 for a carton? Only problem is that it's our last stop. My husband won't be able to smoke all those in 2 days! We'd have to pay duty on them coming back into Australia.

At $3.50 a pack you could give them away, or split a carton with another smoker. As far as I know you can bring in one unopened pack and one opened pack each, so that uses four between the two of you- then ........

Yes that's the plan. There are five other adults so we'll each take one open and one sealed packet off with us. Thanks for the tip.

You can also buy cigs in the bars on board, that are reasonably priced. Also in Noumea directly across the road from the port area, there is a duty free shop that sell them and deliver to the ship for you to smoke on board.
