Dawn Princess Shopping Tips:

  • The liquor deals are excellent. However, keep in mind limits on what you can bring back into the country per your countries Customs regulations. Plus, there are certain state limitations. Also, liquor bought at the on-board store cannot be consumed during your cruise you will be given the liquor you purchased during disembarkation.
  • No, you can’t bring Cuban Cigars back into the U.S. if you are U.S. citizen.
  • While not a guarantee, many items go “on sale” on the last day of the cruise.
  • Read the Princess Caper for daily “special” sale items (watches, gold by the inch, etc.) featured in the stores.
  • Reportedly, several companies that run art auctions on-board cruise ships will provide an appraisal with their art that will lead you to believe that you are getting very good value. There are those with opinions that the appraisal methods are questionable. So, if you are inclined to buy something at one of these auctions, a common sense approach to avoid feeling like you got ripped off is to never buy thinking you will make a profit, buy the art because it suits your tastes and budget.
  • Each member of your family has a “Cruise Card”. This card acts as a credit card as well as a room key. That also means each kid-unless the parent takes care of the card for the child- has access to charging privileges. These privileges can be limited however with a visit to the Purser’s desk. If you don’t set up a limit, it is worth it to check the account periodically if you suspect one of the kids may have abused this privilege.
  • If you or one of the kids has trouble keeping track of that “Cruise Card” card, go to the Fun Shops and buy a plastic holder with a lanyard. Place the card inside the plastic holder and you are good to go. For extra security, stop by the Purser’s Desk and get a hole punched in the card to slip through the security ring that attaches the lanyard.
