So I told him I'd only have a minimal budget for souvenirs for him and he understands that.
I think your cruise is 4 or 5 days. Is that correct? If so, I think $25 a day is sufficient. Or even more than enough. If there is something that your son wants, he can "pool" his $25 a day allowance so that he can afford to buy the souvenir of his choice (almost). I doubt if a teen boy will see anything that he really must have that will cost more than what he will have grand total.

Are you getting him a soda card? If he stays away from the video games onboard, he will do fine. If he starts to play them, he will be wiped out in a couple of hours.
