Default How Much Is Dinner On A Cruise Ship Worth?

On a recent trip to Vegas, I checked the prices on the menus of several resturants, not necessarily the fanciest or most expensive. From what I could ascertain, a typical dinner in the ship's dining room would cost upwards of $60, not counting tax and tip. This doesn't include ordering multiple menu items as you can on a ship. Also, in my experience, service on a ship exceeds that of most resturants.

Let's all cruise more and eat more!

We are in agreement also.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

I use to live in vegas. It was sooooo easy to drop a hundred bucks just at the casino before/after dinner....and then if you are seeing a show that night, for two thats an easy $100 there, then dinner...60-80$ ....Thats almost $300 in one night. Lets see, multiply that by 7 nights, thats 2100$!
Thats a nice cruise with all of that above and more food, snacks, desserts, shows, service and....some nice islands to go explore on! My vote, cruise!

I vote for the cruise to. Who wants to pay $$$ in a fancy restruant, losy service and leave a tip. We are seniors so we look for places that have the best prices. We try to eat out for less than $30.00.
I can buy a weeks worth of groceries and fix several meals for $30.00 to

i'm with the rest of you! Actually that estimate might even be a bit on the low side, especially since all the menu items on a cruise are a la carte

I was amazed at how much I spent on food during our land vacation last month. Our last dinner for 4 was over $100 WITHOUT the tip and we all only ordered an entree. No soup, salad, appetizer or dessert.

Cruising is the best value, IMHO.

Mark and I always play that game - "How much would this meal have cost us in a regular restaurant?" - and we always come away with a new appreciation of the value of cruising.
