Seems to me we've been paying $11.00 on HAL since at least 2006. It's still a good deal. Think about what you'd be doing on gratuities on a week in a hotel and eating out 3 times a day . . . I know I always tip $5 per day hotel room; at least $5.00 - $7.00 for dinner; $3:00 - $5.00 for breakfast - - - oops, I think I'm over the $11.00 per day here...
