There is no weight limit on luggage if you are sailing from Southampton. Normal duty free rules apply i.e 1 litre spirits and 200 cigs if purchased outside the EU.

There is a limit that ships allow but normally you would get nowhere near it. The luggage allowance is something that is exercised by airlines and they all seem to differ in some way or another. So if you are flying go on to the web site of the airline concerned and there it will be fully explained. If you are going in and out by sea then don't worry about it too much but P&O's brochure or web site will explain fully. If you are travelling to and from EU countries there is no "Duty Free" any longer and providing you buy your goods in their shops then the only criteria is whether it is for your own use. For countries outside of the EU and for product purchased on board, I think, then 1 Litre of spirits and 200 cigarettes apply. Hope that's helpful....Falan Dow.

So, I have done a short interview with Jane, who has also kindly let me share some of her wonderful p...

The last two stops on our itinerary were Livorno and Villefranche. As we had pre-booked the Monaco & Monte Carlo excursion for Villefranche, we opted to do our own thing in Livorno and take it easy for the day.After a short coach transfer from the port to the city center we spent most of the day shopping. There were plenty of shops, bars and restaurants and we found them to be very reasonable with plenty of choice. From here we had the option of visiting Pisa or Florence or both if you ...
