Early Birthday Present: A Cruise!

I'm taking a birthday vacation in January! It's a 4-night/3-day cruise to Mexico with a few of my best friends and I can't wait!

This was a bit of an impromptu decision over the last month but now it's all finalized. Since the cruise is within a few days of my birthday, my parents have offered to pay for the cost of it as my birthday present! I have more than enough money in my Travel Fund to cover the price ($395) plus all my on-board/in-port purchases, but now I only have to pay for the latter thanks to their generosity! :)

I am doing a high estimate of ~$150 for all my personal expenses. Since food is included while on the ship, this would be for drinks, snacks (though I'll probably bring some), steward tip and whatever I feel like buying/doing during our 1-day stay in Mexico.

I'm so excited!! It's exactly what I need to start off a new year. Bring on 2010! :)

Wow that is awesome! I didn't know that cruises were relatively reasonable priced (As opposed to going on a regular vacay?) I might have to look into this! Lucky your parents are offering to pay!

I'm going to NY for the first time in Jan. Here's to 2010!
