I go with that - I am thrifty during non-holiday time but enjoy myself on hoiday.
However I can never lose all my thrifty habits on holiday esp internet.
If I am canny on minor things, it allows me to have a really big splurge if I want one.
Each to their own
PS Re hotels pre-cruise ; because I have to fly - I like to spend a 2 or 3 days in port and that is where I do splurge - I so like a nice hotel in the right location.
