Take a cruise: Cruises are the best bang for your buck! There are a ton of cruise line deals out there, that range from about $200 to $500. This may seem expensive. However, you need to remember, you are getting all inclusive meals and, if your of age, you can find cruises with free open bars. There are also so many things to do on a cruise, depending on your ship. This includes: access to multiple pools, hot tubs, casino, night club, game nights, and much more! This is your best option to visit multiple islands as well. If you wanna get an even better deal, share a room with your friends! Staterooms hold up to four guests and once you share a room with more than two people the prices go down. You can split the costs equally, so everyone gets a cheaper price. Sharing a room with this many people may sound crazy, but with so many activities on the cruise, you’ll rarely be in your room.
