Can I consume my duty free purchase in my cabin and around the ship?

Duty-free liquor products sold via the shops will only be available to take home. You may order via the shops (detailed below) at any time throughout the cruise and orders will be available for collection at the end of your cruise (you will be given details where and when you can collect your orders).

Tobacco and cigarette products can be bought via the shops at any time and taken away immediately.

The liquor and tobacco shops on all P&O Cruises ships offer a comprehensive range of spirits, cigarettes and tobacco. Not only will you be offered significant savings over UK high street pricing, but the shop will guarantee to be cheaper than any comparable outlets - including any shops you may encounter ashore during your cruise. Internet pricing is not included in the guarantee. The shops are shut when the ship is in port.

Duty-free shops are located in the below locations by ship:
Azura - Emporium - Deck 6
Arcadia - Emporium - Deck 3

Arvia - The Avenue - Deck 7
Aurora - Piccadilly Court - Deck 6
Britannia - Deck 6
Iona - The Avenue - Deck 7
Ventura - Emporium - Deck 6

If you would like to purchase a bottle of spirits for in-cabin consumption during your cruise, you may do so by ordering via room service.

Intra EU cruises (Cruises visiting only countries within the European Union)

On an intra EU cruises, we are unable to sell any duty free liquor or tobacco for on board consumption or to take ashore from the shops on board.

Please Note: The Channel Islands is not part of the EU for VAT and Excise duty purposes. Cruises calling at St Peter Port are therefore NOT Intra-EU cruises.

Price guarantee

The shops will offer a price guarantee on liquor and tobacco purchases for take ashore purposes. We guarantee the shop will be cheaper than any comparable outlets - including any shops ashore during the cruise. You will need to be able to provide proof of the cheaper price from recognised retailers. Online price comparisons are not included. If you have already purchased on board, the shop will refund you the difference back onto your on-board account. If you have not yet purchased and have proof of the cheaper price ashore, the shop will price match for you.
