Booking our excursions...
While we knew it may be cheaper to book outside of the cruise-line, we wanted to make our trip as easy as possible for us since it is our first cruise... So we went ahead and booked through the cruise line so we don't have to worry about missing our appointment because we didn't leave enough time to get off the ship.
We also set aside enough cash for a soda pass for my hubby & our individual gratuities ($10 per person, per day)... As well as $100 of pocket money for souvenirs, possibly a little money to gamble with at the casino on deck, and snacks when we are off the ship if we like. We will also have a bit of our own personal spending money and a little date money with us too. On Friday we are house sitting/puppy sitting for a whole week and that money should cover the costs to park our car and any fuel surcharges we get assessed if gas blows up in price next month.
Hopefully we aren't forgetting anything.
We wanted to book a zip line excursion but they didn't offer one so that's something we may try and figure out for next time we go since we will have a better layout of the island and how long it takes you to get off the boat (---that is, if we like the cruise and want to use the second set of vouchers we have). As of right now we haven't received hubby's pass card yet so here's hoping we didn't waste $60 trying to get it. (Silly us and our procrastinating).
