Oh well-- sometimes it's fun to not be so serious.
That happens ALL the time! You should have known that!
Carnival has been at $10. pppd for years. Seems to me, it was $10. in the 90's.
Even MSC is $12. But that $12. is shared by all service workers including bartenders. No 15% added on their drink tabs.
