Additionally, tobacco products are available from the Duty Free shop. Please see "Can I purchase duty free liquor and tobacco on board?" for further information.

There are some areas of the ship where smoking is prohibited. Please see "Where can I smoke on board?" for further details.

Please also see: What is IVA tax? as there are some occasions where duty free tobacco cannot be purchased on board.

Travelling to the United Arab Emirates

The UAE's National Tobacco Control Committee does intend to bring a complete ban on smoking in public areas so please keep up to date with this via https://government.ae/en/information-and-services/health-and-fitness/tobacco-and-alcohol-provisions.

Please note that e-cigarettes are illegal in UAE and are likely to be confiscated at Dubai airport. We would advise these are not brought with you as they will be confiscated and you may be penalised.
Smoking is not permitted in any public areas in Khor al Fakkan. This includes outside on public beaches or in national parks.
