Cruise ships with the best shopping

A little while ago, YourLifeChoices pointed out 10 cruise ships where you could spice up your onboard experiences.


Of course, not everyone wants to go ice skating or do simulated sky-diving. Some people enjoy the simpler pleasures of cruising, especially the shopaholics.


People who enjoy discovering a bargain on board have always been well catered for, but some ships do it better than others. Here is our list of the ships that do it best.


Majestic Princess (Princess Cruises)
The Majestic Princess will call Sydney home from September this year, and cruise and shopping fans alike are in for a huge treat. The ship will be the largest to sail in Australian waters and features 1100 square metres of luxury boutiques which include designer names like Cartier, BVLGARI and leather goods from Burberry and Gucci along with famous name watches. Highly-trained specialists are available to ensure the best possible shopping experience. Some of the tax-free offers on board suggest you can save up to 30 per cent off the suggested US retail prices.


Celebrity Eclipse (Celebrity Cruises)
If you are more interested in gadgets when you shop, Celebrity may be the cruise line for you. All Celebrity ships offer top-of-the-line electronics at their Innovations Store, an authorised Apple reseller where you can buy iPads, MacBooks, digital cameras, and more. Every Celebrity ship includes a stunning shopping plaza and sophisticated galleria, inspired by Europe’s most elegant arcades. Beautiful marble walkways take you to the finest boutiques and jewellery stores, showcasing luxury watches, designer fashions, exquisite gems and the very best cosmetics and fragrances.



Ovation of the Seas (Royal Caribbean)
The spectacular retail offering of Ovation of the Seas features the best of fine jewellery, fashion, luxury watches and beauty. Make your cruise just that little bit more special and take home goodies from an unprecedented collection of global brands including Cartier, Kiehl’s, BVLGARI, Hublot, Kate Spade and more.
