    A first step towards re-introducing several classes of service? With gates between the decks to keep the steerage pax away from the first class PAC? Cue the Titanic theme.... :)

    Most of those don't have much value for me. About the only thing I appreciate is the priority boarding as sometimes the lines are nuts. Not sure that would be worth 50$ though.

    More fees?? I love fees! Time to book my next cruise.

    Can't wait until they charge me fees for changing my towels and the privilege of sitting on deck chairs. Oh, the possibilities...

    Some cruise lines already do stuff like this. I know MSC does. I might pay something to get onboard at a set time, like an appointed or specific time, but I wouldn't pay much. They should try all inclusive liquor. People would pay for that :)

    Carnival Victory cruise to the Southern Caribbean (St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, & St. Maarten) does. Just got back from that cruise and they wanted $43 per day per person for all you can drink. My wife and I didn't sign up, drank plenty of top shelf wine and booze w/o getting crazy and came out under what they wanted for all-you-can drink. That being said, I did see some people on the boat that if they had that package, Carnival lost money.
