Sometimes they let you bring them back when you purchase them, sometimes they will hold them until the last day. I don't know what rules make it different from ship to ship or cruise line to cruise line. Anyway, you can purchase 2 cartons for $44, 5 cartons for $108. You can bring 1 carton per person back duty free.

As Dave said, you can buy cigarettes by the pack in the bar, but it is a very limited selection. You can purchase cigarettes in ports and bring them back with you. So far, they have not confiscated cartons I have bought on shore. I opened the carton and took out a few packs, just in case, but they let me keep my carton.

Warning! Be wary of buying Marlboros on Cozumel! I bought a carton several years ago and they tasted awful. I thought I was smoking Basic or Dorals.

I'm going to have to quit anyway because I can't afford them. They passed a 50 cent per pack state sales tax recently. Our Governor came up from Argentina and vetoed it, but they out voted him. We had the cheapest cigarettes in the country with a state tax of only 7 cents. I'm not paying $41.49 per carton.

Some of us remember when we'd get a little pack of cigarettes in our c-rations package. I think it had 4 cigarettes in it.

Dwayne, I still remember being able to buy cigarettes in the Carolinas for $1.99/carton. Y'all are still less expensive than here. It's $44/carton now with the "sin" tax on them.

Before they added the federal tax last year Marlboros were only $28 at Murphy's. They had to put a limit on carton purchases back then because folks from New York and other places where loading up while here. Marlboro has been on the slack side with sending coupons lately. I hate the new self extinguishing paper they are using now.

I remember buying a carton of Lucky Strikes aboard a ship in Viet Nam for $110. When I quit smoking cigarettes were 50 cents a pack in a machine.

That would be $690 when adjusted for 2010 dollars!
