Default Baked Alaska and 18% tip added for drinks

Was that article by Paul Motter supposed to be satirical?

Are you talking about the 10 cruise traditions that should come to an end, or whatever it was called? Is so I think it was at least semi serious. There are many things that I have become tired of and others I never enjoyed, and a few on the list that I still enjoy. I suppose that is what you get from any list.

When cruise lines went to autotips they destroyed incentives. Splitting tips does the same.

Yes that is the article I was referring to.

I found different discrepancies so i figured it was a satirical piece since he knows way more than I do.
