Default Inches of Gold on RCCL?

I know that Carnival usually has inches of gold for sale on their ships at pretty good prices. My husband & I want to buy a gold necklace for our son, but wonder if RCCL has this available and we should wait until our cruise in August to buy this for him, since Carnival has had some pretty good deals in the past!

Any info would be appreciated....

Happy Cruising!

I remember them selling inches of gold on the Grandeur back in January, but I don't know about the prices. So all I can say is yes, it was available. Good luck.

Honestly, I wouldn't waste my money. If RCL sells the same type as on Carnival, it isn't worth it. The bead necklaces/bracelets are fine but the gold/silver ones aren't . My daughter's silver bracelet broke in half after wearing it for about three weeks. My son's gold chain was very rough and bothered his neck. I found the same thing with the gold bracelet I had done. If you run the chain through your fingers, you can feel the rough spots. Maybe RCL has a better product (if they sell it) than Carnival. I have never sailed on RCL so be sure to check it thoroughly. Good luck.

JeanS...Inch of Gold was available on the Radiance in May.

nolou525, Inch of Gold is the company that sells their merchandise on many cruise lines and it offers "International Lifetime Guarantee". Look inside the blue plastic bag for their guarantee and receipt. If it breaks, you can send it for repair or hold it until your next cruise. Last month, I took a 4 year old bracelet I bought on a CCL cruise and had them fix the clasp and take a link out....no charge. I also took a necklace from a previous cruise and had it made into a bracelet and anklet...no charge except for an extra clasp. They are there to please. I have had more expensive jewelry break too, just returned it for replacement.

CA Cruiser--thanks very much for the information. I really liked the look of the things I bought and was very disappointed when they didn't meet my expectations. I will definitely send them for repair since I haven't planned my next cruise YET.

Thanks for the info, but we're going on a California Coast cruise this time, so we won't be hitting the Caribbean. However, we will be stopping in Ensenada, not sure how the prices are on gold there. Anyone have any info???

Thanks in advance!

Waste of money.

I bought a necklace and the finish wore off the necklace in a few months of daily wear.
