Duty Free Ferry Cruise Ports | Katakolon Cruise Pier
Katakolon Cruise Pier
This international Cruise port is located in a European Union Member State. If your cruise is travelling to, or coming from another country which is located outside the European Community, you will be able to purchase duty free goods on board.
You will not be able to buy if your ship is travelling to the same country on a domestic service or within the EU. Most, if not all cruise ships, sail in international territorial waters, so you can buy duty free and tax-free goods onboard during your voyage.
Some cruise lines do not allow you to consume your duty free liquors during the cruise, they will hold your spirits in safe storage for you and deliver them to you when you leave the ship. Check before you sail with your cruise specialist, for more details.
Cruise Ships operating from Greek ports usually travel in International waters calling at non-EU ports, the Cruise Operators include: Cunard, Royal Caribbean, Seaborn, Costa, P&O, Carnival, Celebrity, Windstar, Holland America, Norwegian, and Thomson. The duty free allowances on cruise ships will depend on where you are travelling to and from and how often you leave and re-join the ship with the goods you have purchased on shore. Your customs allowances limit will apply at the point that you finally leave the ship and return home. Greek Ferry Operators include: Superfast, Minoan, ANEK Lines, Agoudimos, Blue Star, Hellenic, Endeavour, Dodekanisas, and Sea Service. On Ferries travelling within the European Union there is no fixed allowance, but your purchases will be tax-paid. On ferries to non-EU destinations your allowances will be the standard international customs limits, the same as flying to the destination country. So, search your final destination above, click a travel point and then the red customs button for your exemptions. Your cruise specialist will be able to assist you with reservations and other details. Port shops in the docks may have slightly different regulations, please see our port store messages for details, as the rules will apply to each different location.
Many Cruise and Ferry Port retailers are yet to publish their on-line duty free catalogues, prices and store locations. As soon as the online duty free pre-order information is available, we will update this page.
