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 :shock:

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!

Good question. I would take a guess and say that it will be a mix of both. Some will continue to bargain hoping for more sales and others will say hey more chances so why bargain.

I for one do not look forward to being at any port with the Oasis or the Epic when it comes out. It is bad enough some times with 4 of the same size of 3000+.
