Carnival adds new stores to separate you from your money

You Carnival cruisers haven’t been spending enough while on board. As per CruiseRadio, Carnival has added some new stores for you to enjoy.

Carnival Cruise Line has announced that they’re completely overhauling the shopping experience onboard their ships. The upgraded retail venues and expanded offerings are the results of months of research and data, gathered to customize and match the preferences of Carnival’s guests.

Here are the new offerings available across the fleet:


Effy is one of the largest manufacturers of fine jewelry in the US, and will be onboard 12 of Carnival’s ships. Effy’s tax and duty-free items feature a lifetime guarantee and range from colored gemstones to diamonds, tanzanite, and other quality products.


Swarovski is one of the world’s leading retailers of fashion jewelry and will be on 25 ships. They offer custom jewelry, pearls, sterling silver, and more.


TAG is a leading company that produces high-end watches, and their store will be available on 24 of Carnival Cruise Line’s ships. The company’s constantly evolving line of fine watches are worn by celebrities and sports stars around the world.


The nation’s top costume jewelry provider offers a range of rings, necklaces, custom bracelets, and the most popular – charms. Pandora will be found on ten ships, and guests can purchase a memento of their trip with some charms tied to a vacation theme: cruise ships, palm trees, passports, sandals, and more.


This high-end store offers a full line of fashion watches in hundreds of styles, from exercise to everyday to special occasions, providing a watch to suit any mood or taste. The shop will be on 25 Carnival Cruise Line ships.

Victoria’s Secret

Not only does Victoria’s Secret sell their staple lingerie, but they also offer beauty products including mists, lotions, perfumes, and more. Victoria’s Secret will be found on 22 ships.

Los Cincos Soles

This Mexican-themed retailer offers sterling silver jewelry, souvenirs, t-shirts, and arts and crafts created by local artisans. It will be found on only four of Carnival’s vessels.

Over the past year, Carnival Cruise Line has completely renovated the shopping venues aboard Carnival Sensation, Carnival Elation, Carnival Conquest, and Carnival Valor. Carnival Victory, Fascination, Legend, and Paradise are set to receive retail refurbishments next year. The upcoming Carnival Horizon will take it a step further and debut the line’s largest and most diverse shopping experience to date with two decks of shops, boutiques, and displays

On my last cruise a bought a laxative. That's was it. Boooooy it felt good...Surprised

Oh wow!!!

I know what you mean. On camping trips have had it happen and finally having the big event is an absolutely amazing feeling.

Keeping things cruise and thread related, never had the problem on a cruise ship and never have bought laxatives on a Carnival ship (or any other ship).

Monique and I usually plan some jewellery purchases prior to the cruise. We plan what we are looking for well ahead of time. Some gold chains for the family Earrings, rings and a few pendants make up the purchases.

My son buys watches, every cruise he collects top end watches usually two. He saves about 60% and has an extensive collection.

We buy the usual tacky souvenirs. So the increase in onboard stores probably won't make a big difference. But I do understand the money grab angle.

I like to buy the souvenirs too. My mom does also and has a large amount of little souvenirs from over the decades. I've got a good collection going myself as well.

As soon as the stores open, my wife and I buy the tumblers we will use for the entire cruise.

Is it possible to have too many watches? Tell me it ain’t true!

Todd, glad your found something in the gift shop that moved you.


now that’s funny

Yes. That was clever. Keeping it cruise related

All that cruise food can be binding....
