of money you have spent on a 7-day cruise? Not counting tips automatically added, who's the most frugal. Notice I didn't say cheap, just conscious of spending.

Come on you light spenders, you know who you are!

Mary cruising soon!

I moved this to General Cruise Chat since it isn't Carnival-specific.

I am no doubt out of the running as the "winner" here. I think the least we've ever spent is around $700.

Being Scottish I can beat your $700.
Not 7 days, but 12 we only spent $400, most of it drink my I add.

On our last cruise - 7 days HAL Zuiderdam in the Caribbean - our bill at check out was $91 excluding gratuities.

On our first cruise, my husband went into the ship's store to buy a candy bar . . . he was dumbfounded to find out he had to put 95 cents on the ships card . . .

This frugality thing escapes me. I spend at least $50 a day just on drinks (the ones with alcohol in them).

My itemized onboard charges average around $350 for a 7 day cruise. That's just what I charge on the account. Those "Bucket of Beers" are not cheap. That does include my auto grats though.

Now the least amount for a 7 day cruise, counting the onboard charges, and what I play with in the casino would be $0. I won in the casino and paid everything off.

I have to save and be conservative all year for my cruise, so I don't worry about it too much once I step onboard. I budget $100 a day and almost always have money left.
