OK, guys…I need opinions.
Currently, I have my timeshare villa readily available at the Atlantis from 5/10-5/17. So we wouldn’t have to pay for accomodations. However, airfare is $400 per person now…total of $1600. And the food at Atlantis is RIDICULOUSLY overpriced. So add another $1500 for food for the week. Approximately $3100 total. AND Eugene would miss 2 days of the trip! He is already going to Las Vegas with the boys 5/8-5/11. He’d then leave 5/12 to come to the Bahamas.
Next option…rent my Atlantis villas (as planned) and take a cruise (NOT a Disney Cruise though) from the New York area. I found a 6 night Cruise to Port Canaveral, Nassau and Grand Cayman for $2100 TOTAL for the 4 of us! We wouldn’t have to take another penny out of our pockets, except to tip. It leaves 4/27 and gets back 5/3. And the cruise leaves from NYC, right in our backyard. Someone could drive us to the port! The Cruise Line is NORWEGIAN and the ship is SPIRIT. Does anyone have experience with Norwegian Cruise Lines??? I’ve only been on Celebrity and Carnival myself. I just LOVE the idea of Freestyle Dining! DH thinks that $2100 is a little pricey (he’s NEVER been on a cruise and has NO CLUE what he’s missing!) and I think that price is REALLY great. How do I convince him that the price is right for what you get?
So…WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE IN MY SHOES???
