Capitalism...ain't it grand!?!

I will say...even with the auto-tip, it seems to be that we (USA) pay less for a cruise than you folks in the UK or AU. I really don't understand why that is...other than capitalism..."We charge that much because we can!".

Or are there some kinda taxes or fees that you are subject to from your govt??

Regardless, as working folks, we aren't going to change much....just gripe a lot.
