I went on a cruise in college that left a big gaping credit card bill I couldn't afford to pay off for several years. I also had a miserable time because I fought with my girlfriend at the time the whole trip. I wanted to get drunk and have lots of sex, she wanted to be real romantic and talk about the children we'd one day have. Had I gone with buddies or a non-crazy chick the trip would've been awesome.
A few things - Cozumel do a snorkel and booze trip, they are awesome! Grand Cayman is extremely expensive. Just ate fish and chips and had a few beers, bill was like $60 in Cayman money and used a credit card - turned out it was like $120. In Cozumel we did by rum and snuck it back on board simply by passing it through the security check point, and putting it directly back into a backpack without checking it in. I also had a pint of jim I carried in my back pocket when we boarded.
Finally, I can't remember the upgrade, but it wasn't much... we selected a honeymoon option and for a minimal fee there was champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in our room on arrival and we got to go to a free cake and champagne deal where we quickly realized we needed an explanation for lack of engagement ring and no set date. Maybe doing that deal is what got her all set for planning the future then. If you like having champagne hangovers, consider this stunt. Personally now, I would pass the champagne deal and just go buy some bourbon.
