Default The Cruise Fairy gives you $$5000.00

The cruise fairy magically appears one night and hands you $5000.00 to pay for cruise fairs only, not the on ship accts. How would you spend it by the options in the poll?

Define Premium Cruise Line please - a couple of names would be good.

Hmm...If $5000 is about 3400 that's one cruise for two in a balcony, from UK round the Med 14 nights +
We are a bit unsure these days....always said balcony or nothing ...but when you hear of some of the deals we do wonder...????
