Default Onboard Shopping

I have never travelled on either of the Cunard ships, but I am travelling on the QE2 for my 50th birthday in November.
Like most of the ladies out there I am ever-so slightly addicted to shopping, and although many of my girlfriends have travelled on her, their descriptions of the shops have been very vague. Is there anyone who could tell me more about the shops and what their shopping experience was?
Sx

Hi S,

Apart from the usual 'tax free' shop, there is a Harrods store selling typical souvenirs, a $10 shop with a wide selection of accessories, a very nice jewellery shop with large gems, chains, gold/silver etc., a watch store selling all the main 'labels', and a clothes shop (maybe Frank Usher) selling gowns, throws, day wear & other essentials.

The prices aren't too bad, and if your home currency is Euro's or Pounds Sterling, the exchange rate makes them quite attractive.

My wife seems to enjoy herself in them.

Hope this helps,

Have a lovely 50th birthday

Alan & Katrina
