Default How cheap is it to go to Iceland these days???

I don't know if you guys know this, but the entire country of Iceland is bankrupt, and honestly no joke in England there was about a week after a bunch of major Icelandic investors and a big Icelandic bank went bankrupt, the nation and Gordon Brown were talking about going into "economic war" with Iceland and blockading the whole thing. The Icelandic guy at my student halls had to go home because his money is worth nothing anymore so he couldn't afford to live here. Iceland's got some good alchohol and nice hot springs I heard, I am wondering if anyone has been there recently and knows how cheap it is?

I'm thinking it might be as cheap as going to a 3rd world country, but it has the infrastructure of a rich western nation.

If you're willing to pay for the airfare back home, you can do a 21-night back to back cruise leaving out of Florida that visits Spain, England, Russia, Norway, Iceland and a few other countries in Northern Europe. The cruise alone will set you back about $800-$1000 but that's all inclusive.

With cash in hand, you could probably live like a king. Are Icelandic women hot? With the lack of employment there, you could probably have fresh faced, low mile prostitutes every night of the week if you couldn't score at the clubs.

They need to dust off Björk and send her on an Aid For Iceland tour.
