This sounds yummy, but I have two reactions to the $8 surcharge.
>> As a passenger, I object in principle because the cruise package is supposed to be all-inclusive. Thus, I won't pay it very willingly.
>> As a shareholder in the company, I'm glad to see another profit center that will generate more revenues for the company -- and a special thanks to all of you who line the sharehodlers' pockets by paying such surcharges!
If everybody refuses to eat at any restaurant with a surcharge that exceeds a reasonable tip, the surcharges will go away..
