I think I"m getting hooked to these boards...lol. Just wondering what everyone spent on the average cruise? We just got off the elation (where our rooms were 1/2 price due to a carnival payment refund for another cruise) and we still spent on the average about about 3500.00 with excursions/gifts, etc. Then again, I am hooked to the balcony now. The one before that was close to 4000.00 (both for 3 people). I think I need to get a second job so I can cruise more!
