Hello Norah:

You would probably not get much more than
the 10p for it. Stamp values depend on
many things

Rarity: Millions of these were issued.

Completeness: Normally collectors collect
full sets and there were 5 stamps in that set.
Selling 1 stamp of a set is more difficult than
selling a complete set.

Price: (selling vs buying)

A dealer would probably ask 20p or so , as they
have a minimum price (to cover overhead costs).
(as mentioned - they would be reluctant to break
one of their sets to sell you one stamp). If you
wished to sell, they would offer less than retail
for the above reasons.

Condition + storage:

A tear or crease can eliminate the value of a
stamp, unless it is of considerable value.

Please note that metal foil is not a good way to
store a stamp. Metals can react with stamps
over time. A stamp can be kept in a stamp album
(if you have many) or in a stock book (small booklet
with glassine or acetate slots for stamps. A small
glassine envelope would work too, and you can
keep it between the pages of a book.

In summary, you have a couple of choices. These
include: (a) keep it as a souvenir; (b) give it to a child
or other collector; or (c) use it for 10p postage.

I hope this has been useful. Sorry, no cruise this time.

Have a nice day.
