On board shopping

What shops will I find on board?

All ships have duty free and tax free shops, hair and beauty salons and photographic services. Prices are published on board. All MSC Yacht Club guests can enjoy private shopping opportunities, exclusive viewings of selected jewellery in their suite and personalized delivery of purchased items to their suite.

What are the shop opening hours ?

Opening hours are listed in the Daily Program programme sheet which is delivered to the cabin each day. Shops are normally open while at sea and during the day.

Is there duty free on board?

Yes, MSC Cruises has a wide range of duty free and tax free shops on its fleet.

What credit cards are accepted?

Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, and Diners Club.

What are the payment methods on board?

All on board purchases are made with a personal cruise card so there is no need to carry cash or credit cards.

Are the prices on board more expensive than those on land?

No. In fact the special operating environment that regulates the maritime sector means that many products (such as alcohol, tobacco and fragrances) can be sold duty free, bringing reductions of up to 30% off retail prices on land. 

*Depending on the itineraries and subject to applicable legislation.

When can I purchase the photo taken on the cruise?

Digital files of all pictures taken by our photographers, available for download only during the cruise. Please note that it will not be possible to download your photos after you disembark the ship.
