Just my two cents about shopping pre cruise. The Festivale Market Place Mall aka, Sample Road, is the best place for bargains. My theory, when I pre cruise is: I land, I shop!!
Not even in the islands, can you get a better price on perfume. They have
$10.00 watches galore, great make-up, and boutique style booths for fashions. Costume jewelry is everywhere, as is, the good stuff! Great art glass, home goods,and the Foodcourt is the best place to get a knish, in Sofla.
I have been addicted to this place for many many years now, for me it's THE place to spend my money, before I head off to the islands.
I think there may be an article I wrote about it, archived here. With my Massachusetts license plate being, SHOP*R, you know I am happy as a clam, in a place like this!
There is a website, if you are interested, that will give you info, and directions. It's a VERY easy place to get to from FLL. My precruise , for the Century, will allow me two visits, be still my heart!!!
Trip, with her book & tea!
