If we paid them a decent American wage what would the cost be of a cruise?
We normally pay about 200USD/day . Would the fare be 500/day or 1000/day.
If the fares where that high , who could afford to cruise? If no one cruised the cruise lines wouldn't exist and these people from Indonesia , Malaysia etc wouldn't jobs. . The travel agents in Canada and the US wouldn't anything to sell . Therefore the whole travel sector wouldn't exist either .

One simple change in wages could cause the whole cruise/travel industry to collapse .
If you look at Regent where the staff is paid a decent wage , could the average person afford
to cruise .
