I am still searching for the perfect Caesar Salad. The best one I've ever had was in the King's Inn in Freeport. It was absolutely perfect, never had one that good since.

I couldn't hack the coddled egg (essentially raw) addition in the "authentic" caesar salad recipe. Take it away as most have done, and I am fine with it. Most are poorly made with that awful bottled dressing and too much low quality cheese dumped on top.

The one I had in Freeport was with the raw egg, worschesteshire sauce, tabasco sauce, anchovies, salt, pepper, garlic, lemon juice, oil, and parmesean cheese. They mixed the dressing at the table, in a wooden bowl, then tossed in the romaine, it was awesome!

whole anchovies on top of a good ceasar salad really does make a ton of difference

my uncle occasionally gets these HUGE greek anchovies that come packed in salt - i forget what we have them on, but they are good enough to eat alone....they are so big that you actually crunch through some tiny vertebrae....they are delicate enough that it doesn't cause any problems....i probably just grossed out half the board by typing that haha....i love em though

There are very few times that I'll eat anchovies. One of them is in a salad. Most of what we get in the U.S. is not too good. I remember things like sardines and anchovies (and olives) tasted better in Europe. I currently have several cans of Spanish tuna in the cupboard - the stuff packed in olive oil. Man, is that good. Yeah, I paid almost $10 a can but quality costs sometimes. It makes you want to arrest anyone who sells Star Kist or Chicken Of The Sea.

My, how we've managed to let this thread get off-topic! The original question was about how much money to allot for each day of a cruise.

I'd say $100 is good. That seems to be what we go through, plus another $400-$500 in cash while ashore.

My cruise account for a 7-Day cruise averages $400 to $450.

The biggest charges were for the shore excursions which I book at the desk onboard during the cruise. I know you might be able to save some by booking in advance, but I feel better waiting until I get onboard.

Also, I spent allot of time at the Internet Cafe onboard, emailing my family and friends. I am sure that was a big charge on my onboard cruise account.

This was a first time for us but I do pay for everthing before the cruise even pre-paid tips.
When we went to the British Isles we had a nice on board credit and than the Captain gave everyone another $100 for trouble with the tenders one day, so we had a credit of $32 !! Never happened again !
