    The Damage

    by WallieWallie » Sat Feb 19, 2011 4:34 am

    At last I took the time (as the last bills were finally mentioned on my debit and credit card) to make a list of all the damage (hotels, cruise, phonecosts, travel, etc) in my 2 week vacation.
    My estimated guess was somewhere between €3000,- and €3500,-. And I can say I'm pretty good at this game. €3333,32 (too bad I miss 1 euro cent :P) That's about $4600,-.

    So for next year I already had in mind to drop the extra week and just do the cruise. Cost will be somewhere between €2000,- and €2500,- then I guess.
    Which should be doable with the amount of money I save on a monthly basis + the vacation pay I receive from work in May. I wonder how many years I can do this. ;)

    You Americans my not have all the festivals and venues as in Europe...but you do have the best metalfestival of all!!!

    With that being said...TILL NEXT YEAR!!! :headbanger: :metalguy: :shred: (as leaving your cold and chilly country during winter and come back with a tan is the best way to piss off your colleagues :P)

    Yeah this is called PAYBACK for all you Europeans and all your damn festivals all summer while us damn Yanks toll away seeing Blackguard open for every tour that rolls into town. Plus there are so many good European bands who don't get the respect they deserve from all the metalcore loving 'tards here in the USA.

    So we finally have something that you chaps are jealous of.

    My damages were: cost of Cruise ($1200) + $176 onbroad charges = $1376

    No hotel room needed (stayed at my grandparents beforehand), had my parents drive me to the port (FREEBIE!!!!!!).

    Spent a little on food for the 2 days prior but that wasn't much. I easily spent more on the 2 dinners we had AFTER the cruise than during the whole cruise. :mrgreen: :lol:

    Cruise: $1100
    Sea Pass Bill: $178

    (Cost of a replacement camera: $900)

    = $5018
    (Minus spending money = $4518)

    I don't want to think about how much this all actually cost... but I guess I am now.
    Our seapass bill at the end was about $825 I think about $300 of it was shirts and the duty free was about $100.
    $100 for a rental car in Cozumel + another hundy or more on trinkets and what-not + $30 in gas for rental....

    Dropped a lot in Miami before and in Ft. Lauderdale afterward also....

    Only plan on getting married once, so no biggie.

    :shock: That's a typo, right? No way a rental car could cost $100.

    Not sure what my total damage is as I don't remember what I spent on food and whatnot in Miami, but I'd guess I spent around $1400-$1500 dollars.

    It was actually a hot topic of discussion at the Eluveitie show last night as many, many people want to go and were curious about how much it would cost for the whole trip.

    Definitely came in under $1500 with all my corner cutting but, in the big picture, I'd put the total damage somewhere over $50K as I intend to go every year for at least the next 20 years and I'm sure that all related costs will rise a fair bit in that time. But well worth it I'd say!
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    next time instead of staying in yucky miami, have your flight routed through denver as many calgary/edmonton flights do, and party with us at our place for 2 days.

    it will not only be cheaper, it would be 70000 times more fun. plus, i already know you like beer.

    You guys need to stay in hostels. I paid no more than $30 a night. Was never in the room except to sleep anyways.

    i honestly thought hostels only exist in europe. and from what i know of jaimie he likes his comforts so this would probably not do! i'm getting to that point also i think....where's the emoticon for "steadily aging and becoming less willing to tolerate stuff"?

    I wonder how such an emoticon would look like :)

    I think I managed to do the whole thing for about 3000, couldve done 2500 if I had booked earlier and didn't keep having to cab it between fort lauderdale and miami. Hoping to do next year cheaper.

    Nope, I think it was more like $90, but I paid cash (didn't call my credit card company ahead of time, so no out of the US charges could be made) and bought all the extra insurance they offered. They basically told me that I could treat the Tracker like a bumper car for the day. Anything I hit and anyone I ran over would be taken care of.

    this is for BOTH of us:
    $580 for roundtrip nonstop airfare
    $0 for hotel in Miami (1 night, suite, i had frequent traveler points for Holiday Inn from my job last year)
    $170 for one night out in Miami (beer n burger joint, plus pre party, damn we drank a lot)
    $0 for cab because we walked all around Miami - feet hurt but pretty cool to save that dough at least
    $40 for breakfast and ride to port on cruise day (could have walked, didn't feel like it with hangovers)
    $2270 for cabin for two
    $100 for merch (so sad, we wanted to spend way more)
    $30 for cabs on Cozumel
    $100 for booze AND coffee (so sad, we wanted to spend way more)
    $600 for my little uh health incident...but i survived
    $6 for public transit to Miami airport for two (yeah we're nuts but we wanted to ride that monorail)
    $60 for breakfast and lunch and 2 drinks at airport last day in Miami

    = $3956 for two, about $2000 per person. not too bad considering some spent more than this for ONE!

    My onbroad bill was around $330,-. Which included $90,- on merch (sweater + shirt) and a visit to the ruins of Tulum which was $89,-.
    So $151 on drinks and I even gave a couple of beers, mixed drinks and coffees to others. And received a few in return.
    I guess that makes me a slow drinker. :P Or I just didn't wanted to get hammered and miss out on shows.

    Only a slight buzz is needed for this Dude. Which I usually got while drinking a white russian.

    correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't andy living in Canada? so it's actually a Canadian festival... held in USA waters......
    my money did go the USA as well....

    well the damage:

    $ 1100.- cruise
    € 450.- (+/- $ 620.-) plainticket schiphol-miami - orlando-schiphol
    $ 300.- bill on board
    € 150.- (+/- $ 205.-) hotels (sgouldn't have booked through my travel agent)

    so for the first part of our trip it was around: $ 2225.-
    not that bad. next time we'll probally won't be staying that much longer in the states. (that way I can spend more time on booze and maybe merch.)
    after the cruise we went to Orlando to play the typical tourist en visited disney and universal.
    luckily we hanged out with wallie and sander so we could think back to the cruise
    and off course the dinners were nice with kevin to.

    My approach to the cruise was a Bucket list of something to do that I may or may never be able to do again, so my roughly $3000.00 was well worth spending and I would gladly spend it again on another cruise. :cheers:
