BVLGARI Boutique Opens on the Disney Fantasy

BVLGARI, makers of fine Italian jewelry, watches, and luxury goods opened a boutique aboard the Disney Fantasy on November 15th. The new offering took over the smaller room of White Caps on deck 3 forward. The new BVLGARI boutique joins Tiffany & Co as another luxury shopping experience bridging the gap between Disney Cruise Line and other cruise lines and casinos resorts which offer a wide selection of third party stores.

In late-September, the area of White Caps was closed off in order to complete remodel of the space which included gutting the space down to the bare floors and walls.

During October and the first half of November, the majority of White Caps remained operational with the remodel was underway with black cloth covering the windows of the mystery remodel.

The remodel included the addition of new marble facade emblazoned by the BVLGARI logo making it easy to find while waiting for the Walt Disney Theatre doors to open. A Murano crystal chandelier highlights the interior echoing the grandeur of its Italian heritage.

The design of the store from the antique marble framed exterior to the geometric designs and shapes of the store’s interior are all reminiscent of BVLGARI’s historical flagship store in Rome, Italy.

    I think that’s a waste of space. You can shop Bulgari in any port in the carribean. I would have loved to see more upscale Disney merch.

      I agree with Lars, I would totally impulse buy more upscale Disney merchandise, I probably won’t even walk into this new offering.

    We were on the fantasy for the Eastern and Western Caribbean Cruises (3rd and 10th November) … We saw the Bulgari shop being prepared but it did not open whilst we were on board … Like the Tiffany store not something we are interested in, they seem to have a curiosity value i.e. lots of people look but not many buy … An interesting thing we found out is that non DVC members were being given a $50 onboard credit just for attending the presentation, how much is that costing Disney ?

    We were on the Nov 17th sailing of the Fantasy. The store was deserted as was Tiffany’s. The shop keeper mentioned a big discount on some of the items and when I asked, “will you have a Black Friday sale” he laughed and said its already on sale! We commented among ourselves that it was a waste of space. The other Disney shops were jammed! We were bumping into each other in those 2 shops. Also the Captain meet n greet is now in the Disney shops so even the Captain is getting bumped around. And one day while in the Disney shops the BVLGARI shop keeper was walking around the shops looking at the Disney merch! Obviously he wasn’t very busy.

    Hmmm…I went to the Disney Parks Blog link above and there are 0 comments. I left one, which was not positive, and it’s not showing either. So do they just choose not to display negative comments and all they have gotten are negative? Does anyone really want Disney to turn their ships into giant floating luxury shopping malls?
