Today’s luxury cruise ships are a world away from mere boats. More like floating cities, they offer the very best in entertainment, fine dining and shopping - with excellent boutiques selling a wide range of clothes and luxury goods at duty-free prices. So, whether you’re seeking casual clothing for your next sun-kissed destination or an unforgettable outfit for the Captain’s cocktail party, you’ll find exactly what you need – at exactly the right price. But that’s only half the story...
Wherever you dock, there will be incredible shopping experiences to discover. If it’s a cosmopolitan city, gleaming malls will invite your indulgence, offering tempting treats behind oceans of plate glass. Whilst you’ll still be able to purchase anything you could buy at home, there’ll be so much more to discover – exotic fashion brands you never knew existed, magnificent ornaments in glass, wood or steel, colourful souvenirs of your visit - whatever takes your fancy.
If your port of call is a small village in a far-flung destination, a shopping excursion could be even more exotic and exciting. A memorable visit to a bustling market or ‘souk’ will be allows your to mingle with locals in traditional dress and immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and scents of the locality. Smiling, enthusiastic traders will clamour for your attention, inviting you to sample local delicacies, linger over vivid garments or unique rustic handicrafts and choose their products over those of the competition before haggling over the price.
You will discover exotic treasures that simply cannot be bought back home – not even in the most multicultural parts of Britain’s big cities. Returning to your ship with bags bursting at the seams, you will anticipate sharing your new purchases with your friends and family - items unlike anything they have seen before. With an ROL Cruise, there’s a whole world of shopping waiting for you.
