hey george in NY: Your stuck up NY attitude has shined clearly in your snobby reply. Perhaps you should only sail on your private ship, along with other upper east side types! What a thrilling time that would be!
I did not eat in shorts however the option was open to eat up on deck in shorts if you like. It was a relaxed experience that perhaps someone of your upper crust caliber could not bear. The comment on tipping was to explain the ease of disembarking. I realize that you are probably the type who likes to have some poor jamacian waiter kissing your ass for the lousy $10 tip you would shell out! The porter was most grateful for the additional "cash" tip I gave her!
See you on the upper deck of the Titantic!
