Buying art onboard

Recommended Posts

Hi just wondering if we buy some "Art" while onboard  (thinking a bronze) are we able to take it with us when we leave the ship? We bought some last time we were onboard but they shipped them to us and the freight and customs worked out to be dearer than the item!! Thanx

I am led to believe what we were told last week on QM2 is that anything purchased is delivered and none can be "carried off".

“Shipping and handling” - frequently a profit source for retailers.  Think of all the “free offers” you see -  all you are asked to pay is “shipping and handling”.

The item you purchased on board is but a sample and they will ship you one of their inventory of the same item from their warehouse. None are one of items. Do not have much knowledge of the sculpture items as to value but the prints are excessively overprices.However, if you like it and do not plan on selling it later on for more than 20 cents on the dollar have at it.

 

Provenance for this comment - over 25 years buying and selling fine art, prints and decorative objects.

Thanks everyone for your replies.  Lakesregion  we dont plan on selling the pieces we get  we buy then because we like them and they will eventually be left for our grand kids  so the more Grand kids we have the more cruises we have to take:)
