How many flights did you have to take to get there and back? 2 each way with a stop over in Brisbane Australia from NZ

How many hours of travel? Approx 9 and a half hours

Do you have any regrets and wish you went somewhere else? No

How much did you spend on flights?The trip was free as I won it.

How much did you spend on hotel/resort? It was free but we did upgrade to a big room as the room allocated was tiny.I have a problem with cramped spaces lol

How much did you use for spending money? Masses! I think in total about $10,000. We did a lot of activities, stayed at expensive hotels in Maui, took a helicopter ride around Hawaii, went on a Catamaran and snorkelling. We dined out, hired flash cars to tour.

Was it all inclusive? no

Total Cost? $10,000 approx. 


It was cheap because I won the trip. If I was paying for the whole trip myself I would get a package which included at least one meal a day. Like the one my son and I did to italy which cost $7000 each but included expensive hotels, fine dining, site seeing activities and travel costs.

Is there somewhere else you’d consider going? Maybe Greece.

How much do you think you’ll spend on flights? How much did you think you’ll spend on hotel/resort? Hmm, flights seem to be about $800/person, so probably around $2,500

Do you have any regrets and wish you went somewhere else? No

How much did you spend on flights? $1700 for both DH and I there and back

How much did you use for spending money? Approx $500. We were very good with our money the whole trip.

Was it all inclusive? Yes and No.

Would you go again? Was it worth it? I would definitely go again, although I would pick a different cruiseline (rather than the Carnival). I would go back to each of those places. It was a great honeymoon!
