What’s the best way to travel with cigars on a long vacation?

Q. I have a few questions about traveling and cigars. Soon I will be taking a cruise with stops in Spain, Greece, Italyand Turkey.First, I will take a 15 cigar travel case with me, but over the course of 12 days I doubt that will hold me long as we will have ourown private deck where I can partake.Each day we will be able totour the city, but I was wondering if I would be able to find goodcigar stores in the major cities we will be stopping in, or should Isimply take a lot more cigars? If I take a lot more cigars how shouldI handle them in my baggage? Any other ideas you might haveconcerning long-term travel would be greatly appreciated.

A.  I would guess that there’s someone on the ship (the Concierge, perhaps, or the bartender) who knows where you can acquire good cigars in each port. Otherwise, I would look for a Davidoff cigar store since they’re located all over the world, and carry just about everything.

Regarding your baggage concerns: Although you already have a case, I would look at the X-treme 30 cigar model (shown). It will hold more than a box-full of cigars, is well-humidified, water proof (in case it falls overboard – LOL), and will last a lifetime. They make models that hold more or less cigars, too.

Re baggage in general. you may want to carry the cigars with you rather than put them in your checked-in baggage, especially if you’re flying to your port of departure first. As long as the travel case protects the cigars from serious injury, either way you’ll be fine.
