Hi greatcook, welcome to Cruise-Chat! Congratulations on your up-coming cruise, you're going to LOVE it! Yes, on board purchases can add up, but enjoy your cruise. If you are careful in the casino and don't have too much to drink, you'll find your charges are very low. The shops on board will have sales, the spa will also have specials-usually on port days, and there are extra fee restaurants but you don't have to go to any of them. There are plenty of venues that are free of charge. Poormom is correct, ask. If you feel it's too expensive, don't do it. If you feel that you'd enjoy it, do it Most of all, savor the experience. I'm betting you'll be hooked by the second day
