  1. Thanks so much for all of your responses! The item was well over $800..so based on the info you all provided, I definitely owed. I was just confused because the sales person said that there would be no further taxes or duty that had to be paid (maybe I misunderstood him). The fee wasn’t huge....and it essentially let us skip the long lines getting off the ship:)
  2. My husband and I were on a recent Norwegian Dawn cruise sailing out of San Juan. We purchased a watch at the duty free store located on the ship and were told that there would be no taxes or duty due on this item. Upon providing our Ship Card when disembarking the ship, our name was flagged and we were escorted off the ship. We thought that the private escort was because we had a Penthouse Suite until they walked us past all lines and brought us to a separate customs room. Here they asked us to fill out a Customs form declaring any purchases made on board. Of course we declared what we purchased, and we were charged a duty fee of $45. It's obvious that our purchase was flagged in their system. It's not a large fee, but it's puzzling because we were specifically told there would be no further fees. I'm trying to reach Norwegian for clarification, but am wondering if anyone else has experienced this. TIA
