I am leaving January 11th on the Carnival Inspiration. I am cruising to the Western Caribbean. We are going to The Cayman Islands, Costa Maya, Mexico, Cozumel, Mexico and Belize. I want to buy a Movado watch and I know exactly what I want. It will be a gift for my boyfriend. I wanted to buy it there because I've heard there are really good prices in the Caribbean. Does anyone have any suggestions of which island is the best to buy it from. Is there any way to find out reputable places to buy an authentic Movado. Does the cruise line provide you with any info about shop when you get on the ship?
Thanks for your help. I have priced them out here before, so I know what will be a better price then here. My biggest concern is if it is authentic. Thanks for your help. He loves Movados and I figured this would be the best chance for me to get him one.
Buy your jewelry in St. Thomas rather than Grand Caymen, as the American dollar is only worth 80 cents in Grand Caymen, and thus, everything has a 20 per cent mark up compared to St. Thomas. Grand Caymen has it's own monetary system. Everything there is more expensive because ot this, and they also tack on a 15 per cent gratuity on all restaurant tabs there too, giving you a total markup of 35 per cent. We stay on ship whenever we hit Grand Caymen on a cruise!
