    There will always be souvenir shopping whenever you are on vacation. Ganzee was one of the shops in the cruise ship area that sold a variety of souvenirs and of good quality. We wound up buying a tote bag, magnet, christmas ornament, tee shirts for me and a tee shirt for my wife here. Prices here were reasonable for the quality and we left happy with our purchases.

    What to buy: My tee shirts were $22. Liz's tee was $19.99. Tote Bag was $15. Magnet was $4. Christmas ornament was $12.
