Hi guys,

I was wondering how much spending money i need to take with me on a weeks cruise? It will be my partner and I, and we have pre-booked the all inclusive package. We will most probably do an excursion at each stop apart from Agadir.... going to sit that stop out

Would be grateful for any advice...

Hi Jo,
Our TA suggested between £50 and £100 per couple per port. It wasn't far off.
I found if you were doing ship's excursions you spent less as you didn't need money for travelling about in port.
Using this we worked out before going which ports we were likely to do excursions before going and took the £50 for those. It worked the last 2 cruises and we even came back with money the last 2 cruises.
