There was nothing in the Royal Caribbean press release about cutting out lobster, charging for dining room and buffet food. To start those kinds of rumors is really irresponsible. The cruise lines are NOT the airlines, we know that for a fact. An airline seat is a commodity, the economy of the airlines is completely different to that of the cruise lines. Cruise lines are very customer driven and wouldn't upset the cruising public by charging for all dining. Royal Caribbean released a 4 point plan to cut costs, once again, nothing in that plan even remotely proposes these types of actions. Cruise lines don't want to upset their customers by doing anything like this, while the airlines don't seem to care how many of their customers they upset.
