Just to give you an idea of what I see for next year...Jan. to May... the best bang for your buck is the 8 night cruise on RCL,,,,,the Inside Cabins start at $519 ( not including taxes )

Summer from middle of May to middle Sept. are too high......
*I tried this a couple of years ago with those who might be interested and it fizzled out .....but regardless of whether this works for others or not,,,,I'm doing this,,,,,

My opinion is a 4 or 5 day and preferably the stop in Cuba first then somewhere like the keys second...hereís why..I may be wrong not sure. Iím thinking I can buy as many sticks as I want and fedex or ups them from a different island such as the Keys...am I crazy or what...Pretty sure they only let 100 sticks per person come back...that may not be enough...lol...

3g's is more than you need to spend total for the trip, flight, cigars etc. I only plan on spending a little over 1g total .🤪

But will you have 200 sticks for that price? I have no clue what a box will cost while there....Iím sure Iíll start my research soon but right now Iím clueless.

But I like that $1000 Mark

The best dates are the week before Thanksgiving and after and the week before Christmas but the pricing is still really good from late Sept. going forward. Here's an example...my wife and will schedule a TransAtlantic Cruise from the US to Rome,,,,Barcelona....stay a week and then fly home one way. The A/F is really good based on the affiliate programs that come with the cruise line...we fly free on points but if you have to pay then the one way far is usually under $500 p/p. Our usual cost for a Balcony Cabin for a 21 day cruise on a good cruise line is around $3300......that's for both of us! Catching the optimum time frame is where you are going to save tons of money and going to Cuba between Sept. and Dec. is probably the best time to go.,,,,there are some decent times to go from Jan. to March and at some point I'll post those but pricing changes pretty quickly and being able to travel during the optimum times is the way to go.

Committing to a time frame is hard when considering getting a group together so starting off is getting people to pin down a time frame.....I won't cruise anywhere from May to mid Sept. because the prices are insane and the industry knows they have a captive audience as far as vacations for people...everybody loves to go in the summertime but you'll pay double. The next thing is how long you can be away which is why I have the opinion of a 4 or 5 night cruise to allow getting to the port and getting back home...gives you time to explore the city you leave from. Cabins are another thing...consider that you won't be in your cabin except to sleep and clean up so Inside Cabins for a short cruise is the smart way to go unless u have money to throw around and while I have some money I don't like throwing it away. MORE LATER,,,,,,
