How to Be a Pro at Duty-Free Shoppingby Fran Golden | April 01, 2016
1. Is duty-free always a bargain?
No, not always. If you plan on going shopping on your cruise, especially for pricey items such as jewelry or watches, you should first acquaint yourself with how much they go for at home or on discount websites. This way you'll be able to easily spot any real deals. You may also find price differentials between onboard shops and those on shore.
