Hi Melissa,
HOw much money to take all depends on how much shopping/gambling you plan on doing. One good tip, figure out all the tips ahead of time and set that money aside. You will find once on board ship, all the shipboard purchases will go on your sign and sail card, so you really don't need that much cash.

Enjoy your cruise.

Default Re: Money!!!

We figure a minimum of $10 per day, per person for tips which are still a cash deal on most ships.

You can charge almost anything, anywhere except things like Cokes from vendor carts ashore.

Some friends say they average about $100/day in miscellaneous stuff, I don't think we go quite that high. Some of that money is on their sail and spend card, other is cash.

Cocktails and wine can get pricey, tip atomatically added on your sail & spend card.

Have fun and tell us all about it when you get back !
