The Bulgari shop
Bulgari, or Bvlgari if you spell like a Roman emperor, has
expanded from its flagship store on the Via Condotti in Rome to an international
empire of 155 boutiques. Its products include contemporary Italian jewelry,
perfumes, leather bags, and silk scarves.
The Bulgari shops on the Silver Whisper and its sister
ship, the Silver Shadow, carry items that range from neckties to
necklaces. We didn't do more than peek into Bulgari during our cruise (our
loyalty to Goodwill kept us from shopping there), but Cheryl did hear a lady say
that she'd spent her husband-imposed limit of US $20,000 one morning.
If Bulgari is beyond your means, we suggest browsing in the
Silver Whisper's other shop, which is simply called "The Boutique." You'll
find cruise wear, gifts, costume jewelry, and more practical item, along with
souvenirs like t-shirts ($20) and coffee mugs ($7) that won't require you to
sell the trailer.
