Default Apple products

Hi I am sailing on solstice to Alaska in September. I would like any information on buying Apple products on board Namely an IPad Pro. I am from the UK and Apple products are more exspenve in the Uk. I will be In Chicago and Seattle before cruising and was wondering if it's better to buy before cruising.


Any information would be greatfully received

I don't recall seeing a lot of "apple" products on cruise ships. I think I would look on-line for places in Chicago and Seattle before you leave, to get an idea on prices...

Donna,


I believe that the Celebrity ships have an Apple store on board. My sister purchased her IPad Mini a few years ago on the Solstice.

Just saying, for any major purchase either on a ship or at a port, know prices before hand, and hopefully you will find a good deal.

I would take the time you have pre-cruise and buy before you go. Take a look at what the prices are once you board and return the purchased item if Celebrity gives you "a deal".

I found very few "deals" on brand name electronics on board a cruise ship.

Take care,
Mike

Prices are the same as in Apple stores, limited availability however they do not charge taxes which can make it attractive. For those previous posters, Apple does not allow discounting so buying on board can be an excellent choice. They sometimes give incentives like internet minutes on board. Check out the specs though not sure if all the connections,etc are the same.
