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.
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 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.
