Well, I can certainly help you a little by buying you and your hubby some drinks in the Concierge lounge, and dinner in the main dining room.
All you really need is your credit card, every thing you purchase on the ship is put on your seapass.

If you are talking about just onboard the ship, that should do it. We spent around $600 for a 7 night should a few weeks ago but we don't drink or gamble. We did buy sevaral pictures and some souvenirs onboard though. They link your seapass card to your credit card so just make sure they give you enough room. I thought I remember seeing something about $500 limit. I don't know if that is to prevent a big loss if you lose your card or what. Ask before boarding if there is a limit.

If you have that much money maybe you should take me along!
Our last 9 day cruise we spent $200 (Bingo once, and a few take-home-to-the-children-gifts!) Oh yeah, we did lose the $5 bucks we played in the slot machines!
We had a great time and it sounds like you will too...don't drink too much you want to remember the great time you'll have too!

3-4k well i would not like to be drinking with you . if an average drink cost $5 work out how much you will need to take. as to the gambling give yourself a limit on each day.

thanks for all of your help......i only drink and gamble on vacations! it sounds like i gave a bad impression, lol. i'm doing all of this planning behind my hubby's back, and i am truly ignorant of what to expect financially. i usually leave all of that stuff to him. i just want him to have a good time without worrying about what we are spending.
happy sailing!

The money people spend varies greatly !! Drinks, gambling and shopping can make a big difference....LOL, Berick I thought with all the jewels you were buying, it was your 2nd 3rd and 4th WIVES !!! We did alot of shopping, and I like my wine, in fact I haven't had a drink since I have been back !! Still trying to dry out !!
