I don't spend money on a "maybe I'll like it." I don't order expensive meals at restaurants. I'd never eaten filet mignon before. Never had a bagel with lox for brunch. But on the cruise a lobster dinner "cost" the same as a cheeseburger or a pizza. All the "included" restaurants were equal.
So we splurged! We had appetizers! Sometimes two! And entrees! And dessert! And coffee with dessert! We saw comedians! We watched music shows! We visited other countries! We went to an art auction and drank free champagne! The entire cruise, start to finish, was the single best thing.
