My husband is a wonderful man. He really thinks its not for him and he has no problem with my sister and I cruising. But I want him to try it one time before he fully decides. If he doesnt like it thats ok. more money for my sister and me to cruise. since I only have to pay for one when its her and I. And he would never bring me down on my cruising. I LOVE IT.
Our final tab was about $480 (including $10 per day per person for tips). We had a serious financial emergency just one week before our cruise that forced us to watch every dollar we spent. That being said we had a wonderful time because after all it was vacation.

For a 7 day cruise our tab usually runs between $500.00 and $800.00. Considering the automatic gratuity for two that is about $140.00. I gamble but never charge it to the sign and sail. Cash only! We book our own excursions on line so nothing there. We usually spend a little in the stores for things we forget like batteries, sun block. Maybe some snacks or souveniers but we never buy bottles of liquor to take home. We usually buy one or two alchoholic drinks each per day and some soda. We do bring some soda for our room. I do allow at least $100.00 for photos. This is our chance to get nice formals of DH and myself each year for the kids. Also ordered Christmas photo cards on last cruise. It sure adds up fast! Of course if you get on that internet your bill will really go up! That will put us at the $800.00 mark. We have a business so we have to stay in touch with people.
