Nice staff. You are charged for everything beyond the core basics and the fees are outrageous. Passengers joke among themselves -- when a new napkin is supplied at dinner (\"Will this cost us?\")\, but it truly is not funny.
We are encouraged several times to give \"extra\" tips\, even though we are charged 15% extra for tipping for everything -- meals\, service\, everything. Yet we are told if we enjoyed ourselves\, to tip more. Why??
