We had a wonderful experience on the ship. Everyone was pleasant, willing to assist when needed.
However, Beware, when you are told your purchase is "Duty Free", it may very well cost you when you go through Customs.
I guess you could lie, and not claim everything you purchased, but, We could not do that. So, our "Duty Free" purchases were not duty free. We also didn't travel with a check, or our debit card, "just is case". So, ask more questions before you cruise, and take a check or debit card, or you may spend a lot of time finding someone who could bring/send you some money, so you can leave Customs.
