I love cruise vacations. If you don’t drink a lot of alcohol and don’t spend a lot on excursions you can have a nice vacatuion for a fairly reasonable price. If you can drive to the port you can save airfare.
My husband and I did a cruise in 2004 and it came in at about $2000 with our cruise fare and our spending money. Different cruise lines have different costs. You will pay more for more upscale cruise lines.
I have been on Carnival, Norwegian and Royal Carribean. They are among the more resonable cruise lines. A good site for tons of info about cruises is http://www.cruisecritic.com Carrie
