That's actually happened already! Its amazing just how low prices have gone the last couple of years.
Admittedly they seem to be trying to make up for it once they get you onboard, with lots of additional charges. Everything from ice cream, to alternate restaurants to squeeze a few more bucks out.
I guess the question should be asked... what are the alternatives?
If everything (including tips) is inclusive in the price (as it is on some cruise lines) the prices can get prohibitive.
Rather than going that route, the cruise lines seeming to going to the User Pay system.
Both certainly have their drawbacks. Its certainly interesting seeing what we passengers think through the feedback in the message boards.
