Default Re: average cost of cruise

We try to cruise each year but must keep the expense down since we are retired & depends on how much I make on Ebay (extra funds).... We booked the Conquest for Oct. 30th for $829 that includes Port & Gov. taxes..... Add your tips ($150) & we have $979 bare bone cost.... We don't do the tours, just walk around & shop so we budget $200 for that.... We don't gamble or need the mixed drinks so Zero on that..... Don't need all the pictures either... Zero.... So we budget $1179 for a 7 day cruise for 2 people..... That equals $169 a day for the two of us, can't beat that at a fancy hotel & your meals....
