Duty free

Duty free has returned on board, with savings of up to 50% when you sail to and from the UK to France or Spain.

From duty free savings on tobacco and spirits and wines – with many of your favourite tipples, and new tastes, yet to be discovered – to unmissable discounts on top brands, including Chanel, Dior, Hugo Boss, and Jean Paul Gaultier; plus your favourites from cosmetics and skincare.

You’ll also find some great savings on fashion, jewellery and accessories, from established brands like Saint James and Kipling as well as a few on board exclusives. It’s a great excuse to treat yourself.

There’s technology savings too – with travel essentials like phone chargers and adaptors, plus a range of products to make your trip easier, or more fun!

Savings and allowances differ depending on your destination, so before you buy, please see our overview below, or ask a member of our team when on board.
