For $5 you get a fresh breakfast or lunch crepe which I heard is to-die-for.
Ah yes.. I remember those from the RCI Ships, available at the Solarium Cafe, for free!
Guess it costs extra to build a ship like Solstice.
They do keep finding ways to charge for things apparently.
Too bad about the attendance at your talk. You're now traveling with cruisemates who have been cruising for 5 days. I think that's the "mind is musssh stage of a cruise, and they probably just want to enjoy the shiplife, knowing they are going to have to pack tomorrow.
