Shopping & Dining Tips
Some stores are open on Sundays and holidays when cruise ships are in port. Smaller stores may close for lunch between noon and 2 p.m.
Best Shopping Ideas:
For children, hollow tubes filled with seeds known
as "rain makers" brought over from South America, along with walking
canes and drums.
The better stores offer every imaginable type of Delft Blue china, particularly porcelain figures and figurines. The huge wheels of Gouda and Edam cheeses store forever in a refrigerator back home.
