It's difficult to believe some of the things crew members will tell you about shopping at 'cruise approved stores". On our last cruise I thought the "expert" was a carnival hawker. I have never heard so many sleezie statements. He was on the gangplank each morning handling out "discount coupons". I could not believe all the people grabbing for those coupons and heading for the nearest jewelry store. We went into a few to see what was happening and the jewelry was really 'crap" at a very inflated price. Wait until you return home and go to a reputable store where you can go back if things are not as you expected. Trying going back to that port and getting a refund.
