Does that really say $11,740 per person based on double occupancy? holy shit!
that's a 14 day cruise with air fare to Buenos Aires included, it is pretty good actually
You must be getting one hell of a tax return!
Some things are worth saving up for. If there is any one advantage of living comfortably within your means, it is that once in awhile, you can spend a few extra bucks on something bad ass.
Sandra and I made a promise to each other when Jasmine was born that we would make sure summers were awesome AND educational. This summer we are going to Germany and bumming around Europe for three weeks, next year we were thinking of this cruise as a possibility (there are a few others on the docket). Basically we plan to use $10k per vacation each year with some give and take (so $7k this year allows for $13k next year etc). That way, by the time she is ready for college, she will have enough worldliness to be a part of the world community.
Its a good opportunity for the wife and I as well, since these are all experiences for us as well, but without the necessary aspect. Its just good time away from home and out in the world.
