Hello my SO and I are looking at taking a Carnival Caribbean cruise next winter break from out of either New Orleans or a port in Florida. We have never been on a cruise or taken a true "vacation" together that wasn't just going to each others places. I bought a book on cruises and have been reading it but I wanted some more personalized thoughts on cruises, and if anyone could make any recommendations as we haven't nailed anything down yet. We wanted something more romantic without too many children (no Disney) but still while not spending too much. How much should we both expect to spend? Obviously I'd have to spend more getting to the port being from Boston where as he is from New Orleans, but what can we expect to spend on the boat for a seven day cruise.
