Thanks for the comparison! I actually think 20% can disappear really quickly when you consider that you can stock your own DCL room (well, at least we did with wine, rum and margaritas, and that definitely cuts down on extra expenses) and if the cruise includes Castaway (don't know if it did or not) my husband and I thought that was like a $100 excursion value because it included unlimited buffet (am I the only one that hit it some at 11 and some before it closed at 2? Good thing I swam a lot and played volleyball that day!) and we snorkeled with our own gear included, along with the sports, the entertainment such as the crab races and island dancing, the ice cream and softdrinks, the Pelicans plunge slide, the hammocks and lounge chairs...(we we to Coki beach in Feb and had to pay $5 for every chair, $10 for an umbrella, all our food, drinks, taxi, everything just to go to a beach...) so we decided that per person, this was a very great value indeed.

Then you add the fact that our shows were probably $40-50 shows easy, that was another great value. And when you pay for cokes on RCI or CCL, the way my husband does, that adds up substantially too...

So rambling aside, we felt like our $540 pp for 3 night with a full veranda and Castaway ended up being a great value, even though we have paid the same for a 7 night that was mediocre at best...
