This was posted over on the Carnival board but I have found this to be true on all cruise lines that I have sailed.

Interesting about the port stores.

I found out about the port stores on my Voyager cruise in January. During the shopping seminar, be prepared to have DIAMONDS INTERNATIONAL drummed into your ears about 150+ times. RCCL owns or gets major kickbacks from this store. They are ok stores, but not much different than any at home.


Until our Oct 31st, 2004 Vision of the Seas Mexican Riveria Girl's Cruise!!

I was told by a jeweler in St Thomas that they had to pay $25,000 to the cruise line for the advertisment.
