You’d think so, but no, it’s real. Thanks for giving me the credit though.Wink

I’d rather waste my money on a Princess or NCL ship.

I've visited the ships store this last cruise to purchase AAA batteries and some pictures. 

No watches, no jewelry or anything else. 

Whoa ! 

For a minute I didn’t see this thread, and I thought it got pulled ( for being fake ).  

 

Oh it’s fake?  I’d still rather not set foot on a Carnival ship.  

 

No, this one is legit

Last couple of cruises we have noticed that prices are higher and not so many real bargains when they have the sales.

Just because the shop is there, doesn't mean you have to buy anything.  I enjoy shopping, but I am a bit slower on the buy part.  These are some of my favorite stores in the ports...so it will be easy to comparison shop.Wink  It looks like Carnival trying to catch-up with Princess in the shopping experience arena.

I have never gone on a Cruise to shop.  Of the stores listed the only one that would be calling me in is the TAG store.    I have a thing for watches,  but I already have a TAG and a dozen other watches.  Last thing I thought of buying in a ship gift ship was a Burberry watch,  then logic kicked in that I have enough watches.

I always wander through the shops, but rarely have I purchased anything, and when I have, it's just to use up our onboard credit. On our last cruise I did purchase a long sundress for $19  instead of the regular price earlier in the cruise of $79. It was a good buy, and I wore it a few times during the summer.
