    cruise ships

    During other vacations we have found it wise not to shop when the cruise ships are docked. Too many slow moving people! Are there certain days/times
    to avoid? Do the cruise ships have certain days/times that they dock?
    Thanks.

    with the new shops up at the high rise area it is so easy to shop there and avoid downtown...still like to go in at some point during our vacations to see what is new and what has changed though....noticed in november they were re-modeling the seaport mall. looks nice, now all they have to do is get shops open again...i liked that mall...

    Downtown isn't bad, unless you're trying to drive through. The shops at palm beach were just as crowded last time i went there.

    If you forget your schedule you can always ask the taxi drivers. They know the schedule like the back of their hand.
