Great link, Dave. I wonder where he got the prices. All I was able to find was a scale of $ to $$$$, without any estimates as to what the notations meant.
Marsha, I think that's exactly what they are doing. Earlier this year, I met the founder of one of the popular travel guides. We discussed this new ship for a bit, and he said that the cruise line could save a lot of money by leaving the ship docked in the U.S. as an amusement park -- they would not need a captain, for instance.
