Since I find it way too traumatic to study my sail and sign bill enough to be able to divide the Casino muggings from the Alcoholic enlightenments , I can only give you my total bill. I do not do excursions, buy liquor, purchase pictures or anything else aboard ship. Therefore, my total bill is foo-foos and penny slot machines and one trip to the supper club.

This last cruise the total was $603. I cruise solo.

But wait, wait, on the Liberty in May, I hit my all time high of $1,396 for one person with only one picture and one album cover purchased. I think I brought some fake jewelry for $10 and ate in the supper club with a $10 tip. Luckily, on this cruise I had $535 in OBC and won $500 in Bingo so most of the $1,396 was not out of my pocket.

I have an amazing ability to consume foo-foo's non-stop, most times drinking them down like they are Hawaiian Punch. However, I am never out of control or offensive.

On the last night of this last cruise, I attended a function with an open bar. It got to the point that the waiter was so tired of me stalking him in the lounge that he brought me six (yes 6) "sex on the beach" cocktails at one time. Hahahahahahahahaha. I already had two on the table. I ended up knocking one over (who cares) and drank down all but one of them. I was pretty gone. Had a good time that night.

Happy cruzin'

I also travel with a large group sometimes and love to buy the funships the first day and stack the glasses high.

Happy sailing

We just got back from Conquest and our alcohol bill was around 500 and the total was 1000. The other 500 was pictures, gift shops, the spa one day and a excursion.

I feel like I was cheap My Bar bill was about $60 for the week the total S & S bill was $208 Inc shore tours and some souveniers I bought on ship.

BUT this does not include the two bottles of wine I brought onboard and the $300 in coach leather I bought in san Juan.

You are my kind of guy....you have to get all you can out of life because you only go around once. Personally I enjoy a good bottle of wine, but I always say one bottle on the ship equals to two on land.

I think I had the largest bill I ever had this last cruise on Liberty. My bill was $172 between my pina coladas at dinner every night and the casino. I never buy the pictures and very few souvenirs. Of course $80 of that was tips.
