How much should I expect to spend for a cruise or resort vacation?

My husband and I have not yet been able to go on a big vacation since we've been together (over 3 years) because we got pregnant early and have been saving for a house. We are moving into a house (to rent and continue to save for our own house) in September and I've really been thinking about starting to save for a big vacation for just the 2 of us while our son is still little (he's 2). I have been on a cruise (when I was 14 with my family) and to a private resort in Punta Cana (when I was 18 with my parents) and both were AWESOME vacations. Since I wasn't involved in the planning I was curious as to how much I should expect to save before planning such a vacation, and I plan on spending cash either way (the best vacation is the one that doesn't follow you home---with the bills!)... any ball park figures?

  • It really depends on a lot of factors. You might try going to the vacation websites and just entering in possibilities (# of nights, room category, flights, etc).

  • For 2 people I'd say at least $3000
