I would like to know what there is to spend your money on once you are aboard the ship. Aside from alcohol and the casino, what are you buying?

Get at least one picture, and on the last day the store will put some items on 1/2 price... so get yourself a souvenir T-shirt or mug or at least something! Have a blast.

Just one picture. The souvenirs are too expensive, even if tehy are half priced at the end of the cruise.

What about spa treatments, massages, manicures, pedicures, facials, shampoo and set? Lets also not forget the "big hitter" shore excursions!

Also, let's not forget about tips, if they haven't been pre-paid.

Hi Hemigrl,
Other than tips and drinks, you really don't HAVE to spend any money on the ship. If you want to spend money, there is plenty to spend it on. Excursion, cabs, watersports, and shopping are a few things than we spend money on. I think your question was pertaining to hidden cost. The tip for your waiters and cabin stewart are the only thing I can think of that's not mentioned, but expected. Roughly $150 will cover that, which is paid at the end of your cruise. Chuck listed some special services that would cost you $$, but it's your choice. Go for it! You only live once.
