You are allowed 3,200 cigs per person and they are free of tax unless you intend sending them onto someone outwith the EEC. We found Piraeus was one of the cheapest sources in the Med area, but perhaps there might be others even better.

Unless you buy from the duty free shop within the port itself, or on the ship, any baccy or booze that you purchase in shops in Europe will be duty and tax inclusive. It can therefore be imported into the UK without further payment (which I assume is your intention) UNLESS you try to bring in an excessive amount, which is somewhat open to speculation. There are plenty of tobacconists in Piraeus and elsewhere; look for the street kiosks (where bus tickets are also sold).

My holiday on Celebrity Reflection… What was the entertainment like? Well there is of course the bars and lounges but this ship had something special…….Silent Disco – Now ive got to say i haven’t been to a disco since 1985, so I would imagine a lot has changed over the years and to my amazement we had the Silent Disco, actually the ship arranged two of them, one on the top sun deck and one in the Solarium, which was by day a tranquil place to snooze, swim or try ...
