I ain't gotta lie it's the money honey. What is the price per person? Do I have to fly? Where is the ship going to? Which ship is it? In that order. Some website with a gnome allows you to search for cruises under $500. I like to start there and work out. I run all the possible cruises through an excel spreadsheet I designed. The spreadsheet accounts for all costs of cruises. Tips, pet sitting, transportation to port (air fare, shuttle, gas, parking), and hotel. Once I have the true cost of six different cruises the formula tell me the true per night figures. My hubby thinks I'm metal. But when we need to decide I have already run the numbers and done the research. So it's easy for him. Hey, I have to use the finance degree for something.
