Also consider that I have travelled on an inside cabin once.....once. I swore that I would never do it again, no matter the cost. It is like living in a closet. I know others may have different opinions, but it drove me absolutely crazy not seeing outside.
Other costs... I know others will chime in but,
the tipping is at $10 per day per person in your party. Beer about $5 with 15% tip automatic. Shopping, excursions, etc off the ship. Gambling, shopping, drinks on the ship. Sodas and booze are not included in the price. Coffee, juices, hot chocolate, iced tea, etc are and are mostly available. All food is included except for maybe a specialty restaurant or specialty coffee. I'm sure more thoughts will come. But, you will love cruising. It is easy to get addicted. It is the best way to see the world at the best price, even on a budget.
