The cruise has a lot of hidden costs. You will pay stateroom, dining room tips per person per day times the amount of days for your cruise. Soda, beer, and mixed drinks are extra, plus a 15% gratuity added to the above mentioned drinks. Shore excursions cost extra; Most ports u will have to take a taxi to the port; unless you drive to the port, then u will have to pay for parking for the amount of days of your trip. I have a vacation budget and use that for whatever type vacation I will be taking. Passports are a good thing in todays world. If I had to do my first cruise all over again; I wish I would have found these chat boards prior to sailing. There is so much useful and good info that can be given on these boards.
