Default Knockdown, drag down shopping?

On The Liberty a couple of weeks ago, we were the only ship in every port we visited....I once wrote a shopping article, and in my research discovered at one point in time, St. Thomas had 12 ships in port

With the Oasis gangplank letting so many shoppers off one big ship, plus the other ships in, how do you think this will effect your ability to haggle and bargain down prices....

The shop keepers may think..hmmmm, we have 15,000 people in today...I won't have to lower my prices too much, because, as one walks out, another walks in..or, will they continue to bargain, and think VOLUME!

Trip, with her book & tea!
