My whole family went on a Sth Pacific cruise 4 years ago and inc everything we spent on board and on the islands etc was less than $3000. and we ate like kings morning noon and night.
When we stayed there, KIDS stay/play/&eat free up to 14 years old. Plenty of various food eaterys & resteraunts some fairly well priced.
There's something ugly about a NEW bike on a trailer.

CCC ride Cattle, Coal & Cane or Captains Crossing & Castlemaine.
