You can click the 'Forward' button at the top of your email, if you know the email address of the person requesting or wanting the list. Alternatively you can 'cut and paste' the whole list and publish it on one of these comment blocks. Have a go. Richard.

Yes you can still take alcohol on board. They only reserve the right to take alcohol from any passenger who is obviously the worse for wear. We were on Oriana in July and had no problem taking alcohol on board in our hand luggage.

You are allowed to take duty duty free on board p/o ships.drinks £2.60 for a pint of stella ,drinks no dearer than a local pub. also duty free prices on board for bottles of spirits very competitive. last time we sailed in sept.

Is the tax free shop in Castries on St.Lucia cheaper than on board P&O ships and do they sell branded cigarettes and drink.
