Please Note: We are experiencing shortages with our duty free supply, so our onboard duty free is currently closed. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
The M.V. Coho features a selection of duty free products onboard the ship. We offer the largest selection of duty free liquor in Victoria, with a wide range of products from single-malt scotch to tequila, rum and vodka. In addition to spirits, we offer duty free cigarettes as well as a range of designer frangrances.
The Duty Free Store typically opens halfway through each sailing. The Purser will announce the opening and closing of the store.
