How Much Spending Money Will I Need ?
Prepare to budget an average of $150-200 per person in spending money, depending on how much you shop and drink. Budget more  if want  to take part in activities and events in the Key West or Cozumel  and other extras such as  tours, spa treatments and gambling. Less if you don't drink alcohol, and will stick to the entertainment on board the ship. It is actually possible to spend less than $100 the whole time, we know many who have done it!


Here is a quick look at what all the little "extras" on the boat can cost: 
  Soda: $1.50 
  Domestic Beer: $3.50 
  Imported Beer: $4.25 
  Cocktail: $4.50 
  Glass of Wine: $2.50-3.00 
  Bottle of Wine: $18.00 and up 
  Excursions in Key West & Cozumel : $55 to $150   
  Massage: typically $75 to $125
