Budgeting for on-board spending

Jump to last reply

This might seem like one of those "how long is a piece of string?" questions, so I'll try to be as explicit as possible as to how I ask it! We have never cruised before, and want to be sure we load sufficient funds in the right currency onto our Travel Card to cope with the end-of-cruise bill.
We (there are 2 of us) a're cruising the Mediterranean & Adriatic - but it's with Celebrity, so I understand the onboard costs will be toted up in US dollars rather than euros. It's a 12-day (11-night) cruise, with only 1 day completely at sea. We are moderate drinkers: a beer or two before dinner, a wine after - although if we get caught up in congenial company on some nights, it could stretch to a little more than that perhaps! We will likely want wi-fi for an hour or so, say, every third night. Maybe dine at a specialty restaurant a couple of times. What other services should we be aware of? Laundy? We're not casino-type people, and I think all onboard entertainment (shows etc) are included in the cruise price.
Based on this information, could anyone hazard a reasonable (or rough!) guess as to what we should budget for all this? We may book some shore excursions, but I have prices for those and can add them myself to whatever budgets people suggest. Many thanks in advance...
