Next cruise my splurge will be one or two (or three) Chamilia charms and maybe the bracelet to go with it, if I don't get one before. Not all that much of a splurge though because it will be paid for with Disney Visa Rewards.

My favorite of all time... Sitting with my family and not having to "watch the clock". Just quality time without a care in the world!

Fantastic thread!!!

In the past I've enjoyed Splurging on
Palo brunch and Dinner

On my next cruise I'm really looking forward to splurging on

We just tried the Rainforest Room pass for the first time on our last cruise. It was wonderful and I'll do it again on our upcoming cruise. We also lucked out and were able to book a cabana for the first time. We could only get one on Serenity Bay so our 17 year old is out of luck.

Since I don't want to gain 20 pounds on this cruise, my splurge is going to be a couple of charms for my Pandora bracelet. I told DH that I am holding out on buying any more until our cruise.

I am also hoping to maybe get a spa treatment, like a wrap or something, since I am not fond of massages...

On my next cruise I plan on splurging on excursions, drinks, palo, pictures, and booking my next cruise.

Palo dinner is nice - especially solo as you get completely spoiled rotten by everyone!

I'll usually pick one excursion to do that I choose. For my upcoming one I'm going "off-ship" and booked with Capt. Bob Cass in St. Maarten and am soooooo excited about it!! Definitely makes up for the fact that that itinerary takes us to San Juan where I have no interest in visiting.

But frankly, based on everything I'm seeing and hearing about the non-Disney ship I'll be on for my upcoming cruise to Alaska, I'm just going to be super happy simply to be back on a DISNEY cruise ship!!
I thought the Chicken Parm was OK. But I will get flamed for saying that I didn't care for the grape pizza at all.

My splurge would be the Dooney and Bourkes and Chamilla Charms. Well..just about anything in the gift shop (tervis cups, vinylmation, pins, etc).

Have done the Rainforest and Shutters purchase which I now consider part of the cost to cruise DCL and budget for.

If there was anything I'd consider a true splurge (beyond the cruise itself that others have mentioned) it would be a piece of jewelery bought in St. Thomas for the DW (worn daily and is always there as a reminder of the cruise) or a print bought in the Gallery.
