The offerings here were nothing to get excited about.
Also referred to as the Fun Shops, this alley winds along Deck 3 and is flanked by two shops selling jewelry, liquor and cigarettes, and Carnival logo merchandize. Also on the Boulevard was the Formalities shop, renting tuxes and selling wine, champagne and candy.
The perfume and cologne selection was modest. There was a selection of clothing for women—mostly resort wear—but almost nothing for men. Watches, jewelry and other goodies were carried, though not much that made us jump up and down with excitement. There was also a selection of liquor and cigarettes at duty-free prices. Sundries available included sun block, pain and cold medications, etc.—not a comprehensive selection, but enough to tide us over between ports.
The shops were closed when Carnival Spirit was in port.
Carnival Spirit had a dedicated crew of photographers shooting posed photos on the ship. Prints ranged $11.99-$21.99. There was also a formal portrait photographer on board whose work we found pretty strong.
The Photo Gallery also sold cameras (primarily Olympus), underwater cameras, media cards, frames and photo albums.
A couple of seminars were held here during the early part of our cruise (Detox for Health and Weight Loss, Improve Posture with Good Feet), and then this room was converted into the ship’s art gallery. An art auction was held on the last day of the cruise (in the Versailles Lounge).
