Cigarretes are realy cheap in Gibraltar! We were there recently, during our summer cruise, and we bought about 2000 cigarretes. No problem taking cigarretes into the ship (our ship was Thomson Celebration), however if at the airport when you come home they may check your bags and make you pay the taxes.

When travelling from a non-EU country (including the Canary Islands, the Channel islands and Gibraltar) you can bring the following into the UK for your own use without paying UK tax or duty: 200 cigarettes; or 100 cigarillos; or 50 cigars; or 250g of tobacco Outside the EC allowances vary. To check allowances, visit the Customs & Excise website on www.hmce.gov.uk. Purchases made on the ship are subject to non- EC regulations - check on board for what you are allowed to bring home. For info cigarettes are less than a pound a pack in Gibralta.

Mainland Spain is O.K. You can bring back what you like, but Gibralter is a colony of the UK so you have to pay tax on anything over the usual limit from there.

We have just got back from being on the navigator which we have been on twice this year each time from Southampton. the cigs are cheap on the ship £11 for 200, they tell you that you can only take 200 back but everyone takes loads, as we did as well. customs at Southampton not a problem you tend not to see anyone, as one of the workers on the ship said that they don't know of anyone being stopped so go for it. have a lovely cruise the ship is lovely.

My Trip on the Independence of...

By Renee Gagen

The time had finally arrived when I was going on the independence of the seas, we got to the port around 12 pm the queuing to board the ship and get our key cards were around 20 mins so not too bad, we couldn’t get into our cabin’s till 1 pm so not long really to wait. We went up to Deck 11 to where the pools were and some of the Bars to meet the rest of our group. The atmosphere was really good the sun was shining the music was on it was really nice and of course, I had a drink i...

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...
