the true duty free (not eec duty paid) allowance is still 200cigs or 250gramme of tobacco per person. did not realise about the madeira bit being full eec ,if it is and your uk flight is direct to there you can bring "unlimited" (interpreted by uk customs as 3200 cigs AND 6kg of tobacco per person),portugese prices are not too cheap though so you would be better risking the duty free from the ship. if the madeira bit does not come in to it the cheapest prices are the duty free on the thomson flights,cigs £30 per 400 tobacco £32 per 500 gramme ,get some extra on the way out as it can be in short supply on the return flight. the prices on the ship are more expensive than on the flights for drink as well

You can buy on the ship too and they are not expensive - I think about £18 for 200 of a reasonable brand eg Richmond Superking

In Tenerife there is usually a stall selling cigs by the entrance to the port and we have found he has the best prices (certainly on the last two occasions we have been!) Yes you can buy ashore and bring back on board ...can't help with allowances as we only ever buy 200 for relatives.

Madeira which is Portuguese's is the only island that is part of the E.E.C. So E.E.C. Regulations apply there. All the other islands are Spanish but they are not part of the E.E.C. So non E.E.C. Regulations apply on them.
