Default Cost of Cruising

Tim Rubacky's information aricle on what it might cost to take a cruise that appears in the "home" section brings back memories of the eatlier years.

The time when a can of beer was 35 cents.
A cocktail of Beefeaters Gin on the rocks was 75 cents; with tonic $1.00
Scotch, Rye or Liquers went for 75 centrs to $1.00
When the self service laundry on Holland American ships was a dollar, now about $3
A glass of wine cost $1,00
A good bottle of wine $ 8-$10.
One thing that hasn't changed in pricing are those so called designer watches selling
for $69.95 although some are now $79.95, alleged to be worth $200 or more but can be purchased at most state side flea markets in the same boxes for under $25.
The cost of pictures taken by the ship photographers are far more expensive than in the olden days.
