I am not disputing you, I am just pointing out how difficult my job has become. Where did you see it said the price is $149 per person for the Alcoves? I was just on the ship attending several press conferences and I never heard that said.
If that is correct - you are right that is just outrageous, however market prices will prevail. I seriously doubt if they will get many takers at that price - you still have to pay extra for food and beverages (you get some water and hand-held fans).
If they don't get any takers the price will certainly drop.
