When planing a cruise vacation it is important that you know the ins and outs of what it cost on a cruise ship. The most important thing to remember is that they are designed to make you spend money and with a few pieces of great advice you can keep from falling into the money traps that you can find on cruise ships.
One of the things you want to be careful with is the little card they issue you at the beginning of your cruise because it can be used anywhere on the cruise ship and without knowing it you can really rack up a big bill that you will have to pay before you leave the ship. It can be used at the bar and at the gift store, jewelry shop, etc. but just make sure that you keep track of what you spend so you do not have a big surprise at the end of your cruise.
It is also important that if you have cash then make sure that when you are in the casino or at places that you can use the cash you do. This will help you from having such a large bill and using cash were you can will be easier to see the bill at the end of the cruise.
Always make sure that you enjoy yourself on your cruise and do not let the price of everything get you so uptight that you have a bad time. Just be aware of what you are spending and make yourself have a limit so you do not have a big bill at the end of your cruise.
