We’re going to Sandals Whitehouse Jamaica (an all-inclusive) for 8 days. It’s 5K, not including airfare.

@roweboat:  We’ve never been on a cruise, but I have heard a lot of people say you get a lot of bang for your buck! 

We’re going to the FL keys for 5 days.

Flights were just under $1k, car rental $350, just under $900 for hotels not sure how much we’ll spend on food and activities yet but hoping to keep it under $4k total.

What helped me decide where we were going was picking 3 possible locations and looking at airfare prices (Um, whoa California vineyards were OUT).  Look at where the off season will be during your HM and advice from Bees always helps :)

We went to Europe and visited a couple of countries for a month. It was pricey, but something we’d wanted to do. We spent $7500 which was actually a good deal…

We went late as well… I was married in August and I”m not heading out for the Honeymoon until December. We are going to Sandals in the Bahamas.

We went to an adults only all inclusive in Punta Cana.  The total cost (with tax, RT private transfers from the DR airport, and the beach massage we added on) was $2100.

We went to the Poconos!! We had the best suite they had and it was amazing!!! We spent under $2000 total including travel, food, booze, and souvineers. I watched for their email deals and was able to snag a room for $275 a night! We had our own personal pool and 7 foot champagne glass shaped jacuzzi!!!

We went to Ireland to 11 days (10 nights) :) Airfare from LAX was $1600, hotels were about $1200, car rental was around $600 (we got lots of insurances, and an automatic car. If you can drive manual, it’s about half that price), and we had about $600 extra spending money for food and gifts. These are all close estimates, so total was roughly $4,000 :) This is factoring in exchange rate, as well. 

 

Oh – and, we used Expedia to book our flights, and Booking.com for the hotels :)

@roweboat:  Found the hotel (Catalonia Royal Bavaro) on TripAdvisor, then booked through CheapCarribean.com.  Great deals there!

DH and I went on a cruise to Bermuda.  It cost us about $1800 for our booking.  We spent about $300 (worth noting that I had $250 on-board credit, but it’s incredibly easy to spend that much) on the cruise.  $300 cash on the island.  So, in total, $2400.  It was well worth it.  Our meals were inclusive (unless we wanted otherwise on the ship and island).  Drinks are a bit pricey, but heck, one or two a day won’t hurt!  If you have any questions, please PM me any time to ask!  =)

ETA: We booked our cruise 8 months in advance on directlinecruises.com.
