Going on a cruise soon? Don’t forget to plan on doing a little bit of shopping at the cruise ports. You can almost always get a good deal and find some interesting souvenirs to take home. Check out some of these items to but at a cruise port.

Liquor
Alcohol is one of the most popular items to buy at a cruise port and on a cruise ship. Not only can you get some bottles of liquor not available in the U.S., but you can get a great deal as well. For example, Tortuga Rum can be readily bought in Nassau, but can no longer be purchased in the United States. Before you purchase any liquor be sure to find out what the current laws are regarding how much you are allowed to bring back.

Jewelry
Travelers can usually get a great deal on jewelry at cruise ports. Costume jewelry is a quite popular purchase as there are a number of pieces that are unique to the location. You may be able to find good deals on items that are gold or contain diamonds, but you really need to know how to spot a fake. Just because a vendor says that the item is real, it doesn’t mean it is. If it seems like an amazingly good deal, then there’s a good chance that it’s a fake.

Personal Care Products
When you think about visiting a cruise port, you probably aren’t planning on buying personal care products. You really should consider it though because you can probably get a good deal. In particular, perfume is almost always worth purchasing. Name brand items can be around 20-25% off retail value. Lotions and makeup can also be a good buy. Cruise ships also tend to have duty-free shops that have great sales on these types of items.

Purses
If you are looking for a nice purse without the high price tag, then you might be able to find one at a cruise port. Just make sure you pay attention to how well the purse is put together. Make sure the zippers work and the stitching is sufficient.
