Elitist?

Actually, my tastes are quite simple. I like the best!

But seriously, Celebrity's style tends to cater to the upper middle class to upper class, who are not exactly pinching pennies. The line has the most expensive specialty restaurants in the industry at $30.00 per person per occasion, very upscale prices at its coffee venues (Cova Cafe di Milano or whatever), and some of the most expensive specialty shops on the seas. The passengers drawn back to Celebrity are not exactly folks who are going to buy boxed wines to save a couple bucks.
