Darlene, there should be some good shopping lectures scheduled on your cruise ship in the theater, which are also broadcast into the cabins via the TV, to listen to. They will name names, and tell you what bargains are out here and at what shops. Be sure to listen to these lectures, and they are also usually taped for replay several times before you get into port. Each cruise line does this! There will tell you WHICH shops are trustworthy. Also, there are usually a list of the good shops and a map indicating where it is in the port city you will be at, in the ships lounge somewhere. Happy hunting, and Bon Voyage!
