its finding that something special, something different that makes shopping the island fun, and i do agree to shop with the local vendors for most items, i think that if it is a large ticket item like a diamond bracelette for example then it might be a good idea to go with the stores that the cruise line recommends, the cruise line will back the quailty of the purchase if you register your purchase with the cruise line, like everything else its INFORMATION that is the key, have a general idea of what prices are for similar items back home, if the price can't be beat on the island then go for it.
