Ok folks, I'd like to see how everyone spends on a cruise. Please don't count your transfers to and from the airport or the planeflight, or the cruise, (We all pay pretty much the same) But what is the amount of money you stick in your pocket for a week of holidays? I go to the Dominican Republic every year, I bring a WAD of cash and use my bank card. Yet I have a friend who goes and takes $50 CAN YOU IMAGINE?? Ok these of course are all inclusives.

So on the cruise ship (tips, barbill souveniers, portraits etc) on the islands you land at etc, what do you spend? Reason I'm asking, I'd like to get an idea of how much this cruise is going to cost me in way of spending money. (I just bought my American Money $1500.00) and I do hope its enough but there's always the credit cards if not.

Thanks all and have a SPlendid Weekend! I'm off to work on nights all weekend...

I budget $100/day while in port. This does not include excursions that I book, just for spending, taxi(s), souvineers, t-shirts, etc. This also does not include casino money, which I try to budget, but it never works out that way. Have a wonderful cruise, maybe we'll see your ship in one of our ports as well

Just got home from a cruise on the valor. We took $1200 and came home with about $400. We did lose "some" in the casino.

On our last cruise - 11 days Hawaii - we spent $795 on board. This included 3 excursions for two people and cocktails and tee shirts, one photo. We brought $1000 in cash and came home with $600. Of course, there was no casino

I usually seperate my casino allowance from my other money budget. So for daily cash I allow around $50 a day for onshore taxi, tips and lunch etc. But I take $100 a day just in case. Certain excursions, like going to St.John I know I will need extra that day for all the taxis and ferry rides. This does not include my onboard Sail & Sign, just cash/travelers checks I take. I also take at least one credit card with plenty of available credit just in case. I usually come back with money.
